Before this important match, a war of words has started between Bangladesh and Sri Lankan team. Sri Lankan captain Dasun Shanaka’s statement acted as a catalyst for this discussion. He said that only two world class bowlers were present in Bangladesh.
“Afghanistan have a world-class bowling attack,” said the Sri Lankan captain after the loss to Afghanistan. Shakib is a world class bowler like Mustafizur Rahman, but there is no other bowler in the team of his ability. By comparison, Bangladesh and Afghanistan become ordinary enemies.
Bangladesh coach Khalid Mahmood responded by accusing the previous Asia Cup champions of lack of motivation on the day of the elimination game.
