BSS, New Delhi :
After leading the side by playing a sublime 43 ball-60 not out, Mushfiqur Rahim revealed that he was aware of not to do the mistake that he did in Bangalore three years back.
As Bangladesh sensed a famous victory in Bangalore during the World T20 in 2016, Mushfiqur and Mahmudullah Riyad played glory shots to be dismissed in consecutive two deliveries when Bangladesh needed just two runs in three balls to win the game.
After their dismissal in two balls, in a row, Mustafizur Rahman was run out in the last ball, failing to even make the game tied one. However the entire blame was on Mushfiqur and Mahmudulllah that as to why they wanted to finish the game off with boundary when just single could do the tricks.
Both of the batsmen later revealed that the pain wouldn't be erased until they win a game against India on Indian soil in their life. And Mushfiqur now himself led the side's maiden victory in India to bury the ghost of Bangalore.
Mushfiqur said he learnt from that mistakes and tried to finish off the game by playing sensible cricket.
"Men can make mistakes. As long as you're learning from your mistakes, that's the most important part," Mushfiqur said.
"And after that incident, I was closing the games in T20s and also in ODI. So that gives me lot of confidence. We knew what we had to do in that situation rather than (not doing the) things what I did in past. I had chat before starting the 20th over. We knew and we are clear. And after couple of years, me and Riyad finishing off the game. It feels really great," he said.
"It can happen to any player when you play in the same condition in previous occasions and you have an experience of playing for 10-15 years. I won matches staying in the wickets previously, so it also gave me lots of confidence. I had chat to get some twos and singles. There were lots of rooms on the side. So had a chat and we also learned from our previous mistakes (Bangalore)," he added.
While Mushfiqur Rahim played the anchor role, the other players, specially the young players chipped-in-with valuable contribution. Mushfiqur heaped shower of praise on them.
"It is a great moment for Bangladesh. We didn't win before against them in T20 form before. We are missing couple of our key players but the way the young players stuck together and the way bowlers bowled in this track specially against India, it's outstanding. I think it was the score to defend in this track because it was not easy to bat on specially with the new balls. And also in the later part because India have some quality spinners. So it's not quite easy. But the guys showed their talent," he said.
He went on saying that "I think we have nothing to lose coming into this game and also in this whole series. So that's gives us a great caution and gives us a freedom to play our potential and fearless cricket."
