Bangladesh captain Mahmudullah paused at post-match presser, know why

Dubai/UNI: Bangladesh skipper Mahmudullah had to pause for a few seconds in the midst of a post-match press conference. Why? The Scotland players were celebrating their win by loudly singing their national anthem after handing out a six-run defeat to Bangladesh in the ongoing T20 World Cup on Sunday.

The Bangladesh captain patiently waited for the Scotland players to finish their anthem and then continued answering the media.

Bowled over Mamudullah's gesture, Cricket Scotland took to Twitter and posted a video captioned, "Sorry we will keep it down next time." They also praised Mahmudullah for showing composure in another tweet.

After the loss to Scotland, the Bangladesh skipper said the team need to pull their socks in coming games, especially the batsmen.

"Bowlers did their job really well, but the batting unit wasn't good enough tonight," Mahmudullah said.

The team needed to figure out the mistakes because the 140 runs target was achievable, he said.

"We need to be positive and pull our socks up and play better cricket," he added.
