Bangladesh cricket team set a new milestone in their T20I cricket history on Saturday by chasing down the mountain total of 214 runs posted by Sri Lanka. Opener Tamim Iqbal in the post match press conference marked the victory as special and said the win means a lot the his team.
“I think in the last couple of years we have been starting quite well. It is just in the last couple of matches that we were not playing well as a team. This win means a lot for us, especially chasing down 200-plus,” said Tamim to the media following their historic win against Sri Lanka.
Bangladesh never chased any target over 200 in T20 before this historical match at R Premadasa Cricket Stadium in Colombo on Saturday. So Tamim thinks Bangladesh will get confidence from this mountain run chase and take them forward.
“We have never done this in the past. You get confidence from chasing 200, you know how to play in the first six overs and the middle overs. It is a special win. It will take us forward. I hope we can come back from our bad patch of the last few months,” he added.
