Shakib Al Hasan: We bowled really well. They had a good start given the conditions, overall a very good team effort. On a tricky game like this, it was important to keep our nerves and Hridoy didn't play the first game, but came back and scored an important 15-odd and Shanto was excellent at the other end.

Mehidy Hasan | Player of the Match: I am really happy. After a long time I am playing T20 cricket and was confused with my role, but my captain and team management backed me. I was just trying to bowl in the right areas. I tried to rotate the strike and if there is a bad ball then put it away.

Jos Buttler: It was a different game of T20 cricket, exciting as well but credit to Bangladesh. There is no good way to get out, but it was a tough wicket to start on and Duckett was doing well, we needed someone to stay with him. I thought it was an outstanding bowling performance to defend a low total, we bowled without luck as well but really proud of everyone's effort.
