Meanwhile, Bangladesh opener Tamim Iqbal said, it was not only the fans who were shocked but also the players were also shocked like everyone as they believe they are capable of doing better than what they did in Antigua.
“We are shocked like everyone else as we know we are capable of performing better than what we did [in the opening game],” Tamim was quoted as saying by Cricbuzz after Bangladesh’s disastrous performance.
“We are not trying to make any excuses as we are aware that our mistakes were responsible for our downfall. The way we performed certainly cannot be acceptable,” he added.
Tamim, who recently has reached the 4000 Test runs landmark, also urged the team to keep the faith in their abilities. “For us, the most important thing is to have faith on our abilities and back ourselves,” he said.
“We must trust our own ability and believe that we can score big runs in difficult conditions. We have to believe that we are better than our opponent, both individually and team-wise,” he added on the same.
