T20I series win against India 'will be a big boost for Bangladesh cricket' : Mahmudullah

T20I series win against India 'will be a big boost for Bangladesh cricket' :  Mahmudullah

Rajkot, Nov 7 (UNI) After registering their first-ever win over India in the shortest format

in the series opener in Delhi, captain Mahmudullah said a maiden T20I series win over

the hosts would be "a big boost" for Bangladesh, following the recent turmoil that hit

the team.

In the ongoing three-match T20I series in India, Bangladesh are without the services

of two of their stalwarts – all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan, who has been handed a two-year

suspension after he accepted three charges for breaching the ICC Anti-Corruption Code,

and opening batsman Tamim Iqbal.

However, they still managed to cope up with the recent turmoil, and in the absence of

their star players, bounced back with an impressive seven-wicket win in the T20I opener,

their first-ever victory over India in the shortest format, an ICC report said.

"The mental barrier you speak of, we might have come out of that, even if a little bit,"

Mahmudullah said ahead of the second T20I. "I think in T20 cricket, this sort of chance

comes often and it depends on how we keep calm and execute our skills to try and win

the game."

"Obviously, I think, it is a great-great opportunity, especially when you have already

won the first game in the series, so it's a great opportunity and I think the boys are

feeling energetic about it and hopefully we can put up a good show tomorrow," he said.

Mahmudullah added that after the recent events, including players' strike and Shakib's suspension, a maiden series win over India "will be a big boost" for Bangladesh cricket

and his team.

"If you concentrate on the recent developments, whatever is going on in Bangladesh

cricket, a series win will be a big boost for Bangladesh cricket and also a big boost for

Bangladesh cricket team," Mahmudullah said. "We have to play good cricket to beat

India because we know that they are a good side on their home side and across all

over the world, so we have to be on our top from the first ball."

"India are very strong in their home soil and they have proven it in the last 11-12

years how strong they are. It will be a big achievement if we can win," he added.
