The second T20I match turned out to be a yorker fest, with the bails flying everywhere with the USA players getting into a joyous and celebratory huddle at the fall of every single wicket. US' inspired performance saw them come away with an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series.

Speaking after the match, Najmul said it was 'disappointing' for them to suffer a loss in the 2nd T20I match. The Bangladesh skipper accepted that they did not play well in the game but they are planning for a comeback in the upcoming match.

He added that they need to change their mindset for their future matches.

"Very disappointing for us. We lost wickets in the middle overs, that was the reason why we lost. We didn't play well, but we have an opportunity to come up with a good plan in the next match. We should change our mindset, it's not about our skills," Najmul Hossain said.

Bangladesh won the toss and opted to field against the US. But their decision did not go in their favour.

Monank Patel and Aaron Jones were the two standout batters for the hosts who helped them propel to 144/6. Steven Taylor and CJ Anderson were the other two players who were stunning while batting.

Bangladesh's Shoriful Islam, Mustafizur Rahman, and Rishad Hossain picked up two wickets each in their respective spells in the first inning.

During the run chase, Najmul Hossain Shanto and Shakib Al Hasan tried their best while chasing the 145-run target but failed. Towhid Hridoy and Tanzid Hasan were the other two batters who made efforts to clinch a win but fell short of the US bowlers.

Ali Khan led the US bowling attack after he picked up three wickets in his 3.3-over spell.

Even though Bangladesh lost the three-match series, they will take on the US in the final match on Saturday.
