Mushfiq gives credit to bowlers for victory


Dhaka – Bangladesh skipper Mushfiqur Rahim gave all credit to his bowlers for Bangladesh’s historic Test victory against England.In his immediate reaction after winning the match the Bangladesh skipper said: “It’s a great moment for Bangladesh cricket. It was up and down and no one never knew which team would win. The coach was a bit fired up at tea, we didn’t bowl too well. Then they tried to bowl in good areas and did really well. The bowlers did a great job”.”We didn’t think Mehedi will shine like this. He’s a good batsman as well and hopefully will be a great allrounder for Bangladesh. He said “In the last two years we’ve played well at home, but our next challenge is overseas. We have to adapt really well. You can’t get home conditions everywhere. We are getting there, hopefully if we play more Tests there will be more good results.” Hopefully ICC and other boards will send us series against the big boys. I also want to say thanks to the ECB for coming and the security teams.”England captain Alastair Cook said 270 would have been a helluva chase…probably, today, we showed our inexperience in these conditions. When the ball got rolling we couldn’t stop it. If I’m honest they shouldn’t have been chasing 270, we had four to five chances.We’ve got to learn fast, there’s a lot of talent, the experience will help us if we can take things out of it. We had our chances here. Yesterday evening we didn’t bowled great and often lost too many wickets early. You can chat all you want it’s about performing.” I’m really glad I’ve been able to lead an England side here, so many people came out to support us. People need to come here and play cricket. You can see their development. At home they will be a tough side to beat. They have a lot of good spinners. It’s not easy for me to say, but it’s a good win for Bangladesh cricket. Maybe some things are bigger than one game.”Mehedi Hasan Miraz who was named the player of the match and player of the series said: “I’m really happy; it’s an exciting moment for me. Thanks to all my team-mates and all their support. The senior players helped me when I was nervous.”BSS
