Tamim started smiling at Mushfiqur’s reply and said: “My friend, you are not saying the right thing. It’s not because of Sri Lanka. Yes, Bangladesh were playing Sri Lanka, but you were playing Hathurusingha.”
Tamim then explained: “Actually it’s not just you but all of us. I’m sure you are not saying things from a negative sense either. It’s how he [Chandika] left and how we wanted to defeat him in a sporting sense and not from a sense of anger since Hathurusingha is there,” Tamim said.
