“Losing is no fun, Winning is happiness” says Tamim Iqbal, After winning the first One day international against Srilanka, The Bangladesh skipper Tamim Iqbal seems happy.
In the after match presentation, Tamim Iqbal said “Happy with the way we fought. Mushfiqur, Mahmudullah were superb. Young Afif batted superbly. We did a decent job scoring 250 because it was two-paced. Definitely good to get back to winning ways. Losing is no fun, we lost 10 games across formats in a row. Winning is happiness. Still got two games, hope to continue this” as quoted by ESPNCricinfo.
Mushfiqur Rahim was the player of the match for his 84 runs off 87 balls. He said, “It wasn’t an easy wicket to bat on. When Shakib, Liton got out early, there was pressure. Tamim batted well, allowed me to take my time. And then Riyad bhai was superb. I am not a big guy, not a Pollard or Russell, I stuck to my strengths, took my time. I had to keep one end safe and that’s what I did. The finishing touch from Riyad and Afif was superb. These conditions aren’t ideal to play, it’s not just hot, the humidity takes a lot out of you but credit to our players.” in the presentation party. (Source: ESPNCricinfo)
