Bangladesh registered their second victory and once again it was their key player, Shakib Al hasan who smashed another century to help them chase down the huge total with ease. Bangladeshi all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan revealed that the chilled and relaxed dressing room environment helped the team chase down this target.

In a post-match press conference, this Bangladeshi all-rounder revealed that no one in the dressing room found the target difficult to chase at the end of the first innings. He also added that everyone was comfortable and chilling which gave the team belief and confidence to chase the humongous total.

Shakib also stated that the way the openers started their innings, everyone in the dressing room felt good and comfortable. It helped the team a lot and at no point did they feel the need to panic.

Player of the Match, Shakib Al Hasan smashed his second ton in the tournament and scored 124 runs of just 99 deliveries. Speaking of his innings, Shakib said that it is obviously one of his best batting performance because of the way they chased the target and the way he paced his innings. He further added that he was never in a rush and didn’t have to play too many shots. He was patient throughout the innings.

“I needed to make sure that when I played I had to put the bad ball away. And every time I did that quite well. And it's one of the key things in my batting in this chase,” Shakib added.
