BANGLADESH PLAYER, MUSHFIQUR RAHIM

“You cannot take any team for granted, this was just another game against Pakistan and we treated it like that, all the guys were spirited with that, this is our third chance to go into the final, and hopefully we can make it number one time winning the final.”

PAKISTAN CAPTAIN, SARFRAZ AHMED

“Overall in the Asia Cup our team’s performance has not been very good. In batting we didn’t do well, in fielding we dropped a lot of catches in the field, and our bowling was also not up to the mark. This is the reason we have not made it to the final and are out of the tournament.”
