Mehidy Hasan after winning against India: I feel we have crossed a barrier

Bangladesh all-rounder Mehidy Hasan is happy after Bangladesh's second win against India in the ODI series. Although Bangladesh has had many problems with India in the past, Hasan is happy that some things have changed. "We have lost many close matches from the point of winning and it happened a lot against India.

After winning these two matches I feel we have crossed a barrier (that prevented us from crossing the line against them)," Mehidy said, as quoted by "The barrier was probably gone in the last game and all of us played well and we are hoping that we will do well in the coming days.

There is an opportunity (to clean sweep them) and we cannot relax even though we have won the series. Every game is important for us," he added.

Mehidy praised his team and their performance. "This is a big thing for me and India is a big team, and performing well against India will always give you satisfaction," he said.

"I was not thinking that I will have to do it. The best thing is that we have won the series against India for the second time and we played according to the situation."
Rohit Sharma was their biggest threat and was brilliant, but it wasn't enough to win.

"We were mentally prepared that Rohit Sharma might come to bat and we had plans around how to bowl against him. At the end of the day, you have to pick wickets. It must be said that he batted really well and his batting was a positive for them but overall, I think our bowlers did really well," said Mehidy.

"There was a partnership and it can always happen. Despite everything we did well to overcome it. Mustafizur bowled outstandingly while Ebadot, Shakib bhai and Nasum bowled well. I had a cramp so could not bowl but (Mahmudullah) Riyad bhai helped bowl my three-four overs."
