We gave 120 percent: Calm beat Sri Lanka


The match was easy. But Bangladesh made it difficult to win the easy match. Even Bangladesh was in danger of losing. But in the end, Bangladesh was able to start the World Cup mission with a win. Bangladesh won by 2 wickets by restricting the Lankans to 124 runs.

In his post-match speech, Bangladesh captain Nazmul Hossain calmly claimed that the cricketers were able to implement their plans. They gave their all to win the match.

Shanto said, everyone’s style of play on the field was excellent. We gave our 120 percent. Last 10-15 days we are planning and fielders are doing their work.

The Bangladesh captain also said, I think they bowled really well. But on such a wicket we should have won easily. This is very important for Lytton. He is struggling a bit. But he showed his skills today. I think he batted really well. Heart was really brave. The way he bowled over really helped us.
