Bangladesh had gone into the world event with series wins at home against Australia and New Zealand and after the World Cup failure Bangladesh have played a young team against Pakistan in T20Is.

Bangladesh have clean swept 3-0 at Tigers’ den by the visitors sans senior players, only experienced Mahmudullah led a young side to take on Pakistan.

Opener Tamim Iqbal has kept himself away from the format and this time they missed out Shakib al Hasan due to injury and veteran batsman Mushfiqur Rahim over selection policy.

“I think the confidence level would have been better if we had won two of three games. The dressing room was very lively during the series against Australia and New Zealand. Of course losing matches does hurt the players and doubts are created. I think the players did try their best and gave good effort in the middle unfortunately the result did not come our way,” said Mahmudullah.

Skipper is keeping his faith on the fresh bloods and hope they will shine in future and perform for the team.

“There are a lot of fresh players in the team this time. Saif [Hasan] had his debut, Shahidul [Islam] made his debut [Monday] and bowled well. It was a good opportunity for the youngsters to make a mark. Probably it will take a bit of time as T20 format is not easy. I hope they will manage it in days to come and perform for the team,” the all-rounder explained.
