Reacting to USA's series win, one fan wrote, “USA HAVE DONE IT!!! THEY HAVE WON THE SERIES. DARKEST DAY IN BANGLADESH CRICKET HISTORY. There is no way to hide for this team anymore.”

Another fan added, “Bangladesh cricket is beyond finished. They can't even win against USA.”

One fan wrote, “Shakib al Hassan - playing this series against USA, but I would say this is not ideal preparation. Today - USA Beat Bangladesh 2-0 and Won the T20I series.”

Here are the other reactions:

Speaking after the game, Player of the Match Ali Khan said, "I think it was a low scoring game, the wicket slowed down in the second innings. Credit goes to the bowlers, kept taking wickets. Put the pressure back on Bangladesh. Was a good 19th over by Netravalkar, that helped me in the last over. My goal was to back myself and try to get the wicket. That four put the pressure back on me, but I got back to my strengths. The tail enders expect yorkers, so tried to go short."
