The former pacer also praised Bangladesh for keeping India right on their toes over the series despite the absence of senior players such as Tamim Iqbal and Shakib. He added:
“I thought the third T20I will be exciting to watch. However, India came out as a much better side, but hats off to Bangladesh for their spirited performance,”
