India vs Bangladesh | Playing With New Pink Ball Was Challenging: Mominul

India imposed their authority on Bangladesh in Kolkata Test and won the match by an innings and 46 runs. Such was India’s performance that they didn’t give a chance to the opposition to show some fight.

After the heavy loss, stand in skipper Mominul Haque addressed the issue and said that there is a lot of work to be done to improve their performance in Tests.

“Definitely a bit concerned and it's very disappointing for everyone. We have to learn from the last two games and not repeat mistakes. I think the Pink Ball was challenging especially because it moved a lot with the new ball,” Mominul said at the post match presentation.

But despite the heavy loss, Mominul did appreciate some performances by the Bangladeshi players.

“If we lose no problem, but there were some positives. Ebadot bowled well. Riyad bhai and Mushfiqur bhai batted well.”

Bangladesh had lost the first match in Indore by an innings and 130 runs. In fact, they had lost the T20I series too 2-1. Bangladesh’s only win on the entire tour came in the first T20I at Delhi.
