ICC T20 World Cup 2022: Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hasan laments lack of experience in close competition after narrow loss to India, says: “We don’t play close enough matches to know how the to end”

Just as happened in a 2016 World Cup match in Bengaluru, where they lost from a winning position, Bangladesh missed here after a rainy break and dropped five points via the Duckworth-Lewis method .

“We don’t play close enough games and therefore we don’t know how to win these games. Both 185 and the revised target of 151 were acceptable targets. It’s a shame we didn’t win. Shakib said after the heartbreaking loss.

The outspoken Bangladeshi captain said “a combination of emotion and lack of experience” swung the game in India’s favor after the rain break, as they sailed 66 to no defeat in seven overs due to Litton Das’ blitzkrieg.

“It was a combination of emotion and lack of experience. I think 85 over nine overs, you’ll take that. Bhuvi (Bhuvneshwar Kumar) had completed his spell. We don’t play too many close games, so we don’t know how to do it.

The skipper was gracious in defeat when asked if he could have convinced the referees to start the game at least 15 minutes late, which would have led to the outfield drying out a bit more than it should. was on restart.

“Did I have an option? Do I have the ability to convince the referees? If we talk about rain break, yes it was crucial because we lost the momentum, but when the ball is wet, scoring points is easier.

“It was a bit slippery, and normally it suits batting rather than bowling. But both teams played in the right spirit. Shakib didn’t want to pick a particular moment to change the game.

“In a tight game you can pick a lot of moments (like turns). Litton’s run was crucial. We lost momentum after the rain. But you can’t control the rain. We were close, but not enough.

Did he feel that Litton had slipped before the run-out and fumbled going for the second inning which led to his dismissal on the next delivery? Shakib didn’t want to make excuses. “If Litton slipped on the grass once while running, the next time he should have been vigilant and running on the pitch.”

The two overs, when Arshdeep Singh and Hardik Pandya got two wickets apiece, proved to be very costly, although Nurul Hasan Sohan and Taskin Ahmed pulled them close with some vigorous blows.

“Most teams should get 52 from five overs with eight wickets in hand. We panicked a bit in the middle of the overs. We lost momentum in two or three big time overs. If you see in the last two overs, a lot of teams are scoring 30 runs. It’s a shame we couldn’t score. Chakib lamented.

Losing close matches against India hurts the skipper but he has faith in the ability of the current side to change the results in the times to come. “Our World Cup games against India are close and exciting but we haven’t crossed the line. Hopefully we can change the result because these boys have the ability.
