Shakib on todays match:
"I don’t think we are morally down. The team still is very freshened and cheered up. But it’s true that we had a huge opportunity in that series. It is negative in a sense but at the same time it can be taken as a positive aspect and we should believe that we have the capabilities to make anything possible." - Shakib al Hasan
