Man of the match
Captain Shakib Al Hasan
“I thought the wicket got better in the second half. We could have bowled better. After getting those 5 down less than 100, we could have wrapped them up for a smaller score as only David Warner was their main batsman left. Still, happy that we did the job with the bat. We’re going well overall, just a bit of fine-tuning needed. It’s a long tournament, so we need to keep ourselves fresh and keep going.”
