Shakib tributes to team performance for win in 2nd T20I
In two contrasting days, visiting Bangladesh showed differentials of performance in the shortest format of cricket. The heavy defeat in the first T20I against West Indies, although crated the big hopes, could not push down the barometer of confidence as the Tigers squared the series 1-1 with a 12 run win in the second match at Lauderhill, in Florida, USA.
Shakib Al Hasan, “We had a chat after the last match and we had that believe that we can win against Windies. Crowd was a massive factor, I felt we were playing in Bangladesh. Hopefully they will support us tomorrow too. All the bowlers bowled brilliantly. It was a great team effort from us in the end.”
Shakib led the team from the front both with the bat and ball in hand. Bowling his 4 overs, the world number one all-rounder bagged 2 wickets in an economy rate of 4.75. He conceded only 19 runs all together.
Shakib also scored a 38 ball 60 runs, the second best score for the visitors. Scoring highest 74 runs, Tamim Iqbal was adjudged man of the match.
The third and last T20I match will also be played at the same venue on Monday. The Caribbean side thrashed Bangladesh by 7 wickets in the first match of the series at the St. Kitts and Nevis.
