Holder blames batsmen for defeat against Bangladesh

Taunton (England), June 18 (TIWN) West Indies captain Jason Holder admitted that his side didn't put enough runs and were probably 40-50 runs short against Bangladesh in the match which they lost by seven wickets on a batting-friendly wicket in Taunton.

Put into bat, Windies came through from early struggles and managed to post 321/8 in their full quota of 50 overs at the Cooper Association County Ground on Monday.  However, Bangladesh rode on brilliant knocks from Shakib al Hasan (124*) and Liton Das (94*) and chased down the target with more than 50 balls to spare.  "We were around 40-50 runs short, the wicket played well the entire day just that we didn't get enough runs," said Holder in the post-match presentation ceremony.  "Having said that, we could have been a lot more disciplined with the ball and we let ourselves down in the field as well.
