Bangladesh captain Nigar Sultana Joty feels his side will gain significant experience from their four-run loss to the West Indies in an ICC One-Day International World Cup match that finished in a dramatic last-over finish at the Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui Friday.

The Tigresses also faced the Caribbeans for the first time in their debut ODI World Cup. Joty and his teammates are eager to enhance their performance under duress.

"It was a very close match. We want to work on our level and if we can play more matches against them in the future, we'll have more experience to handle difficult situations like these," Joty said in the post-match presentation.

Joty was left stranded in the middle as she watched the middle-order collapse with three quick wickets gone. The skipper also got at a crucial stage after scoring 25 off 77 balls.

"Pretty disappointed in our batting. I think the lack of partnership gave the match away and I should've played till the end, probably could have helped the team to win," Joty said as she went on to compliment her bowling unit, who were all over the Windies batters in the first innings.

"The way our bowlers started was incredible.  We were planning to utilise the conditions well, I told my girls: just hit the right areas, doing the dots and wickets will come.

"We want to take the positives from the game and work on the lackings so that we can come back stronger in the next game," Joty concluded.
