He further said, “I felt there was a little swing in the first over, but it did not happen in the right areas. We know that runs are the square of the wicket. When we won the first game, we showed a lot of character. The match against Bangladesh was very difficult. I felt that we were holding our own and kept executing our plans. Unfortunately today we couldn’t do that.”
