    Mashrafe Mortaza (2/2): I knew it was a good wicket to bat on and we knew that to bowl in the right areas to get wickets. The spinners bowled really well and then set it up for Fizz and Saifuddin. A big crowd, and hopefully we are expecting them to come back in our next match.

  • 11:14 PM IST

    Mashrafe Mortaza (1/2): The first match always sets the tone. We won in Ireland and that helped us set the tone here. After the toss, I had a doubt whether to bat or to bowl first. But it was a used wicket and the batsmen batted really well, especially Soumya at the start. Mushy batted really well, so did Shakib and then Mahmudullah finished it really well.

  • 11:13 PM IST

    Faf du Plessis (2/2): To go for that many runs, even without Lungi, wasn’t ideal. At the 40-over mark, I looked up at the screen and we were at the same stage, but we lost it in the last five overs. It is definitely not getting easier for us, we are firing at about 50-60 percent today and it shows that even Bangladesh can beat us with only that.

  • 11:13 PM IST
    Faf du Plessis (1/2): Obviously today didn’t go according to plan. Lungi getting injured at the start wasn’t ideal. 330 wasn’t par, and all in all it wasn’t ideal from us. The thinking at the toss was assuming that there would be a lot of pace and bounce against a sub-continental side. But in hindsight, we would have changed that.
  • 11:12 PM IST

    Shakib Al Hasan (2/2): Didn’t know about the record (record partnership for the third wicket), we had a good start and we both (himself and Rahim) knew that we needed to build on that opening. Our confidence is really good at the moment, the next game here against New Zealand is a big game, they are a strong team and will come hard at us. Looking forward to that match.

  • 11:12 PM IST

    Shakib Al Hasan (1/2): I think this is one of our top wins. We have had a few upsets before in World Cup, but this time we want to prove and the start can’t get any better. Before arriving here, we had the belief, we needed this start and we need to build on the momentum. I played two years for Worcestershire and I know the conditions here. We played the 2017 Champions trophy and we had a fair idea about how the wickets behave, knew it was good for batting.
