Bangladesh captain Mahmudullah Riyad urges the batters to take responsibilities while batting, just like their prime all rounder Shakib Al Hasan. The skipper believes, that if one of the batter tries to play the entire innings, and the others play some cameos, then reaching a target of 160 to 170 will be possible on a regular basis.
Mahmudullah quotes, " Someone has to take responsibility. As in the previous match Shakib played that innings. We went close to 160 runs. Someone has to bat  like that in our team. If someone plays a cameo innings of 20-30 runs, we will be able to score 160-170 runs continuously."
The captain adds, "There is a belief that bowlers can defend it if they can score 160-180 runs regularly. Our bowling attack is very good. Maybe the pacers did not do well in the previous match. But in many matches our bowlers defended small targets. There is still deep faith in the bowling department, they will turn around InshaAllah.
