"We were very upset with that defeat. None of us had dinner that evening. Losing is a part of the game and we did not want to lose that match," Mortaza was quoted as saying by a local website, when a local boy asked about Bangladesh not being able to score two runs off the last three balls during their group league encounter against India.

It was a chance encounter for the locals with the Bangladeshi captain as he stopped by at a village on Srinagar-Sonamarg road yesterday.

"On his way back to summer capital (Srinagar) from Sonamarg, he saw a few youngsters playing cricket at Kullan.

Mortaza stopped the vehicle and met the players," the website report stated.

The seamer gave some tips to the young players and even displayed his skills by bowling a few deliveries.
