Bangladesh vs Windies Highlights 1st T20 Windies tour of Bangladesh 2018
Series: Windies tour of Bangladesh, 2018
Match Date: December 17, 2018
Windies won by 8 wktsPLAYER OF THE MATCH: Sheldon Cottrell
Brathwaite, winning captain: Very good win but it’s only one game. We have started with a win before and then gone on to lose the series in recent times. So, it’s important to be respectful of the opposition. Will enjoy this win and come back fresh in the next game. Was important to be aggressive in the first six overs. Needed to express ourselves and we did that with bat as well as ball. May not work everytime but it did work today. We know that the track there in Dhaka will be a lot, lot, lot slower. Cannot rest on our laurels, need to find a way to win.
Cottrell, Man of the Match: Wasn’t an ideal pitch for the pacers but we had to be smart. Oshane Thomas bowled particularly well in the Powerplay. (On whether he expected Bangladesh to play such poor shots) I would say we bowled well and stuck to our plans. (On his trademark salute celebration) I am a soldier back in Jamaica, it’s a way of showing my appreciation to my colleagues back there.
Shakib, losing captain: Everything (went wrong) apart from the toss. Batting failed and then the bowling also obviously went wrong. Was a good pitch, should have probably got about 180 on the board. You must ask this to the other batsmen (on why they played poor shots). Nothing worked out, starting from our batting till the end of the game. We have to learn from this and move forward.
