Shakib Al Hasan, Man of the Match: “I think this is one of our top wins. We have had a few upsets before in World Cup, but this time we want to prove and the start can't get any better. Before arriving here, we had the belief, we needed this start and we need to build on the momentum. I played two years for Worcestershire and I know the conditions here. We played the 2017 Champions trophy and we had a fair idea about how the wickets behave, knew it would be good for batting. Didn't know about the record (record partnership for the third wicket), we had a good start and we both (himself and Rahim) knew that we needed to build on that opening.”
