"I don’t think we should go after him. He wants to pick the ball up, but suddenly it hits his elbow. That sort of mistake happens."

After the match, Bangladesh skipper Mashrafe Mortaza came out in defence of his wicket-keeper, saying that "it can happen to anybody".
"Mushi (Mushfiqur), I don't think we need to go after him, because it could happen to anybody because he was also trying hard to get him," Mortaza said.
"That throw was straight, and then as a keeper, it's very difficult to tell if it was straight or not. He wants to pick the ball and suddenly it hits his elbow, I guess.
"Those sort of mistakes always happen in the ground. So I don't think we should go after him."
