The USA head coach Stuart Law said his team was more determined than Bangladesh in the recent three-match T20I series.

USA won the first two matches but lost the final T20I by ten wickets, ending the series 2-1, leading to their first bilateral series against an ICC full-member team.

"We had more desire and passion about the game in the first two matches. We wanted it a bit more than what they did. Today it was a different story. We may have relaxed a little bit. Bangladesh played pretty well. They will take this in their stride," Law said after the third T20I.

"It is great preparation. Playing games is so much better than hitting balls in the nets. Anything can happen in one-off games. That's what the World Cup is like. No one goes in as ultimate favorites,"

The former coach of Bangladesh praised the Tigers and blamed the media for putting them under pressure.

"Bangladesh are a good team, you (media) guys put them under a lot of pressure. That's one thing I do know. They have some of the best strikers of the cricket ball. The two batters made runs [today] with beautiful cricket shots. A couple of bowlers have good, decent pace. The spinners will always be strong from Bangladesh. They have got a good team," he added.
