He says that the credit goes to the bowlers as they are doing well for us. Adds that start of his career was more of a sporadic but now he gets more consecutive games. Adds that a good start is a key but these pitches are hard to bat on but the key was to keep the wickets in hand.
... PRESENTATION TIME ...
Earlier in the first innings. Mahmudullah's decision to bat first, did not go as per the plan. England bowlers ran riot and kept down Bangladesh to a below-par score of 124/9. Later, then batters came out and motored along pretty well to take away the game from the Bangla Tigers.
Bangladesh bowlers were not on the money. Unlike the England bowlers, Bangladesh pacers found it very hard to keep things tight with the ball. They kept struggling with their lines and lengths. No bowler stood out, as such. Nasum Ahmed and Shoriful Islam were the only ones to find success with the ball. They will be disappointed with their performance. Bangladesh now see themselves in the must-win category, after two consecutive defeats in this campaign.
There is joy in the English dressing room, thanks to Roy! The opening pair, got off to a great start. His runs kept flowing in this innings. Although, Buttler slipped out inside the Powerplay. Malan came in and batted sensibly alongside Roy. They stitched a crucial partnership to take their side close to the finish line. But Roy gave away his wicket at 61. In the end, Bairstow and Malan did the finishing touches to get their side over the line.
England have won their second game of the tournament and are placed comfortably at the top of the table in their group. They are yet to be challenged in this competition. Both the times, their bowlers set the platform and the batters then came in to complete the task. Bangladesh, on the other hand, could not put up a good fight and the Lions have silenced the Tiger's for the first time in T20 World Cup.
