Bangladesh lost to Russo

Riley Russo already knows the Bangladeshi bowlers well. Bangladesh lost to their devastating rounds of 109 runs on 56 balls. Shakib Al Hasan’s side lost by a whopping 104 run margin in the match which took place at noon local time on Thursday in the gallery at the Sydney Cricket Ground. Although South Africa scored 205 from 5, Bangladesh were knocked out for 101 in 16.3 overs.

Where Russo scored 109 runs, 11 batters from Bangladesh scored 101! And so Bangladesh lost to the monstrous and explosive rounds of Rousseau. That’s what Captain Shakib also said after losing by the biggest margin in their T20 history. Russo did not play in the South African jersey for 6 years and 4 months during which time Russo played in the Indian Premier League (IPL), Bangladesh Premier League (BPL). This came in handy in his spin game in Bangladesh. Disappointed with their extreme batting failure, Shakib regretfully said he didn’t want to say anything more about the improvement.
This World Cup started as a dream for Bangladesh. Bangladesh beat Holland by 9 points in the first match to play straight into the Super Twelve stage for the first time. Buoyed by the victory in Hobart, the Bangladeshi team was eager to do something big against the Proteas in the second match. Because South Africa was more under pressure in this game. Because in the first game they couldn’t play against Zimbabwe because of the rain.

They lost 1 point as the match was abandoned. Because of this, they were desperate to win. In addition, due to the presence of rain in the current World Cup and the occurrence of some exceptional events in the match results, the Proteas must keep the running rate issue in mind. In such a pressure match, the Proteas were hoping to see devastating innings from Russo, David Miller and Quinton de Kock. And the Bangladesh team is very excited after winning the first match.

With plenty of Bangladeshis in Sydney, a more confident Shakib entered with the confidence of success against South Africa. But Russo played the best rounds of the World Cup for South Africa. He scored a career-high 109 runs on 56 balls with 7 fours and 8 sixes. This is the highest individual run by a Proteas in a World Cup.

At the last World Cup in Sharjah, van der Dusse scored 94 points unbeaten against England. He made a huge 168 run partnership for the second wicket with Cock. And in this, the Proteas got the basis of the great collection. Cock made 63 of 38 with 7 fours and 3 sixes.
After scoring 180 runs for 2 wickets in 16 overs, Proteas only managed to score 25 runs in the last 4 overs, losing 3 wickets due to the strength of the Bangladeshi bowlers. Simply put, the Bangladeshi bowlers turned around. Because Hasan gave up 24 runs in the first 2 overs, 5 runs in the 18th over and 7 runs in the last over. Shakib also only gave up 4 points in the 19th.

In this regard, Shakib also said at the end of the match: “If we talk about the bowling department, we didn’t do what we wanted. In fact, in such a situation there are not many opportunities to turn around. We weren’t ready either. After getting a wicket in the first round, I didn’t get a wicket in 14 rounds. This is where we fell behind.

But the way the bowlers turned around later is definitely awesome. South Africa scored 205 runs for 5 wickets in 20 overs. This is the biggest collection of all World Cup teams against Bangladesh. Earlier in the 2016 World Cup in Kolkata, Pakistan made 201 for 5 wickets. Taskin 46 in 3 overs, Hasan 36 in 4 overs and Afif 1 with 11 runs in 1 over and Shakib took 2 wickets with 33 runs in 3 overs.

Mirage gave up 32 in 3 overs. Russo went 21-for-1 against Shakib, 21-and-23-for-2 against Taskin and 16-for-1 against Mehdi Hasan Miraj. That is to say, no spinner or pacer has been spared. In this regard, Russo said, “I played a lot of games in the subcontinent, which helped me be good against spin.” And Shakib said of his innings: “He played for the country after a long time, so he was very hungry.”

Bangladesh stands before such a big target for its hunger. But with 21 balls remaining, Bangladesh were eliminated for 101 points. Bangladesh’s 11 batsman scored 8 runs behind Russo. But Soumya Sarkar gave a great start by hitting two straight sixes. After returning to Sajghar for 15 of 6, only Lytton had 31 of 34 with 1 four and 1 six. These two are the best in the rounds of Bangladesh.
Among the Bangladeshi pacers, Mustafizur Rahman showed great improvement and scored 25 runs in 4 overs. However, the Bangladesh team got a taste of their home ground by getting Sydney’s temperature, atmosphere and crowd. The counter was also useful for spinners. But except for Mustafiz, the rest of Bangladesh’s pacers or spinners have all become new.

But the Protea pacers and spinners have been successful. Two spinners Keshav Maharaj took 1 for 24 runs in 4 overs and Tabrez Shamsi took 3 for 20 runs in 4 overs and pacer Enrich Norkia took 4 wickets for 10 runs in 3.3 overs in a best bowling performance in career. Shakib, but not LBW, would have survived the review and Russo outlasted Hasan with a deep third-man hold for 88.

The result of these mistakes brought the shame of the biggest defeat in T20 to Bangladesh. Earlier in 2008, Bangladesh lost to Pakistan by 102 runs in Karachi. And the biggest World Cup defeat was 75 points against New Zealand in Kolkata in 2016. So that was a big shame. In this regard, Shakib said, “We need to improve in these areas. Although I don’t like to talk about this improvement over and over again. T20 matches are like that. Sydney’s wicket was good for the stick. So disappointed Shakib says,
