Bangladesh struggled to win any session as they went down 0-2 in the two-match Test series against India. Many hoped the Bangla Tigers to produce a better effort in the day-night Test but the batters faltered as they went down by an innings and 46 runs in Kolkata. Skipper Mominul Haque seemed concerned and disappointed by their performances and vouched to learn from here.
India will be delighted the fast bowlers took all the 19 wickets that fell in this Test match. There has been a lot of talking about this pace attack being the best in the world and the likes of Ishant Sharma, Mohammed Shami, and Umesh Yadav are proving it day in and out. The fact that this side doesn’t miss injured Jasprit Bumrah shows the pedigree of this line-up.
Need to learn from here: Mominul Haque
The bowlers of Bangladesh tried to launch an attack against the Indian batters but gained no support from the batters. Except for Mushfiqur Rahim, no one had no clue against the Indian seamers who bulldozed them with swing and extra pace. Rahim played a fine knock to push the game into the third day after India reduced Bangladesh to 13 for four in the second day.
With three wickets to win on day three, the hosts took roughly nine over to clean the tail. Umesh Yadav claimed all the three to complete his five-wicket haul and India completed their fourth consecutive innings victory. As a result, they became the only team to achieve this feat. Speaking at the end of the match, Bangladesh skipper Mominul Haque looked extremely disappointed by the performance of his boys. Mominul vouched that they will have to learn from these mistakes and come back stronger.
“Definitely a bit concerned and it’s very disappointing for everyone. We have to learn from the last two games and not repeat mistakes. I think the Pink Ball was challenging especially because it moved a lot with the new ball. If I look back, there were positives. Ebadot bowled really well and Mushy (bhai) and Liton showed what they can do with the bat. Indore was a dry wicket and I don’t think it would make any difference whether we batted first or bowled first,” Mominul said.
