'Whether bowling or batting, I always try to contribute for my team'

Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib al Hasan said the dressing room has received a much needed confidence boost after their hard-fought win against Oman, and gave credit to the bowlers for holding their nerve in this must win game for the Tigers.

Bangladesh managed to restrict hosts Oman to 127 for nine and clinched a 26-run victory in their second qualifiers game at Al Amerat Cricket Ground in Muscat Tuesday.

Shakib is having a difficult time with the bat in recent months and his last two innings in the IPL were golden ducks.

He struggled in the first match for the Tigers against Scotland as well with a 28-ball 20 while chasing 141.

But the ace all-rounder played a splendid innings under pressure, scoring 42 off 29 balls with six boundaries, and formed a crucial 80-run partnership for the third wicket with Mohamamad Naim.

“I always try to make a contribution for my team to win games, whether it is with bowling or batting. Wherever I play this is always my target, to help the team to achieve victory," Shakib said during the post-match press conference Tuesday. 

Shakib believes bowlers bowled really well, particularly in the middle part of the Oman innings, and turned the match in favor of Bangladesh.

“In the last game against Scotland, we needed 86 runs to win. (Tuesday) Oman required 84 for victory in the last 10 overs against us. We knew that, it would not be easy in this condition. Bowlers have bowled well and used this condition well," said Shakib.

“Saifuddin and Mahedi [Hasan] bowled really well. I think their bowling was the turning point in the match. They probably gave 30 odd runs in their eight overs. They must get credit for that,” he added.

Bangladesh will play their last match in the qualifiers Thursday against Papua New Guinea, and a win with a good run rate will ensure Bangladesh go through to the super 12 stage.
