The leg spinner believes India can come back strongly in the series
Yujvendra Chahal of India may have ended the first T20I on the losing side, firmly believes that India can come back strong against Bangladesh.
The 29-year-old, who registered figures of 1/24 in the match said, "It is not about pressure. It is a three-game series, not a knockout game, so obviously one will win, one will lose, and that day they played better than us".
Chahal added, "We are one down and still, two matches to go, and obviously if we believe in ourselves, we will come back."
The leg-spinner was also lavish in his praise for the opposition, who he thinks are a strong side despite the absence of their veterans Tamim Iqbal and Shakib Al Hasan.
"Even without Shakib and Tamim, they are a decent team. They have some experienced players, even a couple of new guys did well. So we didn't think that since two players are missing, so they are a weak team."
Though he has been a match-winner for India in the limited-overs formats over the last couple of years, Chahal said that he doesn't see himself as the leader of the bowling attack. "It's not like that. Among our bowlers, everyone has played 30-40 IPL matches. They have a good experience. I have just played extra T20Is compared to them.
"[In a match,] I can only bowl four overs. There are 16 more overs to be bowled. If the whole team as a unit bowls well, only then we will win. It's not a matter of one person."
The second T20I will be played on Thursday, 7 November.
