“Really disappointing to lose the series, congratulations to Bangladesh, they outplayed us completely. We came back well (at the death), we missed some opportunities in the field which is disappointing. The wicket got better as it went on and I thought we did well to restrict them to the total we did. We hoped we could chase it down but it didn’t happen. Losing two wickets quickly was crucial. Very disappointed in myself for not diving and being fully committed to completing that run,” said Jos Buttler as quoted by Cricbuzz.

The Bangla Tigers had won the first game by six wickets and the second by four wickets to give the home side their first series victory over defending T20 and ODI World Cup champions England in any format. In the dead rubber T20I, Bangladesh thumped England to register a 3-0 series win.
