Mahmudullah takes blame for World T20 loss against India
Chasing 147, Bangladesh were going along fine before a late slump proved disastrous. Mahmudullah was expected to take the team home with two runs required off as many balls but the senior batsman attempted a six that was caught at the boundary, leaving the side in a lurch.
"There was still hope ... but it didn't happen, it's actually my fault. I made a senseless mistake and was responsible for the defeat," Mahmudullah told 'bdnews24.com'.
"I just want to say - I apologise to everyone. I am yet to say officially something after that match. I will try to handle such situation smartly in the future."
The 30-year-old said the loss haunts him even now.
"How can I forget that? When Mushfiq and I were batting ... never thought that we could lose," Mahmudullah said.
"Actually Mushfiq's wicket after two fine boundaries was unthinkable. After that, my dismissal was unimaginable as well -- it was such a mistake."
Mahmudullah said he has learnt his lessons and would look to play safe if faced with a similar situation in future.
"The ball was there to be hit for sixes but I missed. But I can't go back and fix it. In the future, I will try to choose safer options in such situations," Mahmudullah said.
