Pace bowler Hasan Mahmud did not celebrate much despite taking 5 wickets in the match. After winning the Man of the Match award, Hasan said, “This is my first five-wicket haul in international career. Five wickets were not found at home either. I have worked with Donald a lot over the past few years. Always tried how to improve.’
Regarding not celebrating, Hasan said, I don’t even do it. Celebrating by getting the batsman out seems to make him a little more upset, so we don’t celebrate.
Talking about the pace bowlers taking 10 wickets in the match, Hasan said that the weather and conditions helped the fast bowlers. Everyone here enjoyed bowling. Alan Donald (pace bowling coach) has been behind our improvement, the bowlers have also gradually improved. We worked hard to bowl the new ball swing and length and in the right places.
