Bangladesh’s second innings top-scorer Liton Das said the target of 145 was remarkably defendable, although his team needed 60 to 70 runs more.
“We have always known how difficult it is to bat in the fourth innings at Mirpur,” he said after the end of Saturday’s game. “We knew we had to give them a target of 200-220. The scores we actually go for are still difficult. If we get one or two quick wickets they will be under pressure. I think This goal is enough to win.
But that confidence will always be hampered by the fact that India still have Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant yet to come.
He said, ‘If Rishabh bats like he usually does then it will be difficult. [But] No matter how big a batsman you are, it is difficult if you don’t have wickets behind you. Rishabh and [Shreyas] Iyer is definitely a good player but he will be under pressure.
India’s fast bowler Mohammad Siraj was confident of coming out victorious.
He said, ‘We may have lost two wickets more and spent some 30 runs more, but we should not be worried.’ “Letter [Patel] Is set and showing good intent. Rishabh and Shreyas are yet to come. So we don’t need to worry.”
