‘Liton made it like it was a easy pith to bat on’ : Mominul
CRICDOT DESK : After the disappointing loss in the second Test against New Zealand, Bangladesh captain Mominul Haque said, “We are very proud to play well, especially on foreign soil.” I was really happy with the first Test, but the second Test was disappointing for us.
“After winning the first Test, the second Test was very challenging for us,” he said. But playing on foreign soil depends on the mentality. We failed there. But we also have some positive aspects.
Muminul Haque further said, Ibadat bowled really well in this match too, and Liton also batted well. When he was batting, it didn’t seem like there was a tough pitch.
Bangladesh fell behind in the first innings of the Christchurch Test. After losing the toss and choosing to bat first, Bangladesh were bowled out for 126 against New Zealand’s 521. As a result, the Tigers came down to bat again in the follow-up.
The Tigers’ batting innings failed in the second innings as well as in the first. However, Bangladesh put up some resistance in the great century of Liton Das.
New Zealand’s victory was confirmed soon after Liton Das left for 102 runs. Bangladesh finished the series with an innings and 116 runs.
Bangladesh made history by winning the first Test of a two-match series in New Zealand.
A draw in the second match would have been another new history for Bangladesh. However, that did not happen, the Tigers lost the last match. As a result, the two-match Test series ended in a 1-1 draw.
