Thisara perera’s brilliant inning


Perera, MoM: Really happy. Have to thank my teammates. It’s really difficult to defend 154 here. We missed few catches but we took good catches as well. With the dew around, it’s hard to grip the ball. I tried to bowl hard length because it’s really difficult to grip the ball to bowl yorkers.

Shakib, Dhaka captain: Bowlers did a fantastic job, restricting a very good batting side under 160. Disappointed with how we batted, should have chased it down easily. We didn’t start well and didn’t finish well with the bat. In T20s, it’s important for top three or four batsmen to score big runs. We kept on losing wickets and that cost us the match. 8-9 times out of 10, you chase down 50 from 36 easily.
