KL Rahul, captain of the Indian cricket team, expressed pride and elation after the team’s hard fought victory in the third and final T20 match in Chattogram against Bangladesh.
India clinched a victory by 8 wickets in the nail-biting finale against the home side. India won the series by 2-1 with clean sweeps in the first and second matches. The Indian team didn’t have an ideal start to the match though. Bangladesh posted a strong total of 174/5, with scores from Mohammad Naim, who scored a crucial 72 runs, and Mahmudullah, who played a gritty knock of 44 which helped Bangladesh put a good score on the board.
In response, it looked like that the Indian team was heading for a defeat as regular wickets were falling at regular intervals and at one point the score board read 102/5, at which point the outcome of the match looked bleak. However, Indian batsmen KL Rahul and Shivam Dubey kept their cool and kept their composure in the middle, taking India to victory with one over to spare.
Commenting on his team’s performance, Rahul said, “I am proud of the way all the guys stepped up and finished on the front foot, even when it looked like that we were shifting towards the back foot. Winning against a tough opponent like Bangladesh in their home ground, has proved that we have the characteristics of a world-class side.” He also praised Shivam Dubey for his performance of unbeaten (53 runs from 36 balls) and said that this victory speaks volume about the gamesmanship of the Indian team.
Overall, the series victory and the performance of the Indian team gave Rahul and his men the belief that they can rise up to any challenge and produce amazing results on any cricket field.
