We finished on a high note: Shanto


Agency :
Bangladesh repaired some of their battered pride by beating the USA by 10 wickets in the third and final game of the three-match series on Saturday in Houston, with Mustafizur Rahman taking six wickets.
Najmul Hossain Shanto, the Bangladesh Captain was pleased with the way his team had responded to the two losses in the week.
“I think the boys showed a lot of character today. I think the plan we made before this match, everyone executed,” he said.
“It’s very disappointing for us (losing the series). We didn’t play well to be very honest. But we finished on a high note and I think this confidence going up to the World Cup will help us and we know all the condition and all those things. So we experienced all those things. If we go to the World Cup with those experiences then it will help our team,” he added.
The Americans could only manage 104-9 in their 20 overs and the visitors rattled that total off in 11.4 overs without losing a wicket.
The United States, who stunned their higher-ranked opponents by winning the opening two games, claim the series 2-1, a huge boost for their morale ahead of the upcoming T20 World Cup which they co-host with West Indies.
The Americans will face Canada in the opening game of the tournament on Saturday in Dallas but will do so after a chastening loss.
