Shahriar Nafees played a match-winning 70 off just 54 balls to ensure Bangladesh's survival in the World Series! They would have been out had they lost this, but the middle-order that let them down in their first game rose to the occasion this time, with Kapali and Nafees getting involved in a crucial 58-run partnership to give Bangladesh a realistic chance of pulling this one off.
Shariar Nafees is deservedly the Man of the Match
Nafees: "I'm happy to have played the achor's role well today. We had a disappointing last game but it feels good to have come back strongly."
Sathish: "We deserved to lose going by the way we fielded today. We also fell short of about 15 runs and the Bangladeshis bowled well early on. We need to work hard on our fielding."
Bashar: "We bowled well and didn't panic during our batting. We watched the last few games and discovered that if you mix it up well when you're bowling, you can put the batsmen under pressure. We also fielded well today, and were particularly good with our catching. Nafees has had a briliant season and he batted very sensibly to see us through."
That's all we have from here folks. Join us tomorrow for Pakistan XI taking on World XI.
