Bangladesh lost the first T20 against South Africa by 52 runs and they will face the tourist on Tuesday in the second T20 match. However, Tigers opening batsman Soumya thinks their failure to execute the plans are responsible for the defeat.
Before the second T20I, Soumya talked to the media as the representative of the team on Monday.
He said, "All are talking about what was our fault in the first match. Our plan succeeded in bowling and fielding. There was no fault in our batting planning but failed to execute it. If we could carry out the plan properly the result might came in our favour."
Chasing the target of 149 Bangladesh lost their both openers in the first two overs and they were all-out scoring only 96. After the first match skipper Mashrafe said the batsmen got out for playing too many shots. And on Monday Soumya said they planned for attacking batting in the first six overs.
He said, "All the things were normal. Our plan was to score 40/50 runs in the first six overs that might help the next batsmen."
"We failed to perform according to our plans. We lost two wickets at the beginning. The early collapse pushed us behind," Soumya added.
Though Bangladesh are known for better spin attack, Proteas spinners got the much turn in the first match and Soumya thing that pushed them behind in the first match. But they are not worried about that.
He said, "At the beginning there was not that much turn. When Mushfiq got out or we lost many wickets we went behind. It may happen when condition favours the bowlers and batsmen were in pressure, nothing else."
Soumya also urged to play more T20 to improve their skills in that format.
He said, "The more we play T20 that will be better for us. We can understand and learn the each and everything of the format. So we want to play more T20. And through this we will be beneficial."
Soumya also believed if the top order play big innings with responsibility the next match will become easier for them.
