Speaking at the post-match conference Shanto said, “He [Shakib] is going for his scans. We will know after that.”

“We didn’t bat well. We didn’t start well. We batted poorly even in the last game in the first 10-15 overs.”

“We have to bat a little responsibly. If we bat a little carefully in the first 10-15, then we can do well,” concluded Shanto.

New Zealand will be playing their next world Cup match against Afghanistan on October 18 at MA Chidambaram Stadium.
