Man of the match Mushfiqur is all smiles

Bangladesh win against India in T20 International in New Delhi brought smiles on the face of Mushfiqur. He was adjudged Man of the Match for his 60.

He says that his aim was to take the game deep and get one good 16-20 run over off one of the two pacers. 'Soumya (Sarkar) and I had a chat, and we thought of dragging the game deep, and any of the quicks could have been targetted for 15-20 in an over because the spinners got a lot of assistance so it was hard to hit them. Naim also played really well to start with.'

T20 is not one of Mushfiqur's preferred formats but he feels that he is slowly getting better at it. 'I'm trying my best to evolve as a cricketer, and I will try to perform in each and every game for Bangladesh.'

For skipper Mahmudullah Riyad, captaincy became easier as his men were able to execute what he expected out of them. 'I think it was all based on how we started. The bowlers did a great job, everyone chipped in. I think we fielded really well and that gave us momentum going into our batting. I think captaincy is made easy because of the boys who have performed really well.'
