Not just the Super-8, we are the team to play the semi-final final: Hriday


The bowlers restricted South Africa to 113 runs. But Bangladesh could not chase this run due to batting failure. The Tigers lost by 4 runs in a low-scoring thriller.

Is it possible to go to Super Eight with such batting? The in-form Tawheed heart was questioned. Markute, who became the team’s representative in the post-match press conference, replied to this batter.

Hridoy said in a brave voice, ‘I think, not only in the Super Eight, we are a team to play the semi-final final. I believe it.’

Shakib Al Hasan and Nazmul Hossain Shanto both gave away wickets when the best pacer of the Protea team chased runs in the match, Enrich Norquier. That’s why Bangladesh lost 4 wickets for 50 runs and fell under pressure. Hriday still thinks that their shot was fine. Norkia had to play like this to exploit the pace.

Even Hriday does not believe that Bangladesh suffered a shock in the run chase due to the mistake of these two batsmen. Rather, why he couldn’t finish the match himself despite making 37 from 34 balls is the regret of this hard hitter batter.

Is Shakib and Shantar’s out at a gap of 13 runs the turning point of the match or the reason for the loss? Taking responsibility on his shoulders, Hridoy said, ‘I lost the match in my out. If I had finished, I would not have lost. They are already out. I was there till the end. I think I could have won today’s game. I was out so I couldn’t.’

Did you ever think that Bangladesh can lose this match? In response, the heart said, ‘No. I never thought I could lose the match. That said, if I had finished, the picture would have been different. Well, there’s a lot to learn from here.’
