Bangladesh’s dream was swept away by the rain

It has rained every now and then since the start of this year’s Asian Cup. But only Bangladesh’s forehead burned! After only losing 3 runs to rain in the previous game, the game was canceled yesterday, so the current champions left for the semi-finals! Rain was the biggest obstacle for Bangladesh in this match against the UAE at Sylhet International Cricket Stadium. That rain stopped Sultana Jyoti’s journey from Nigra. When the team from Bangladesh leaves the field with pain in the field due to the struggle of being knocked out of the tournament, the team from Thailand celebrates at the hotel. They are excited with the joy of unexpected achievements. The emerging women’s cricket wrote history by reaching the semi-finals of the Asian Cup for the first time.
Heavy rain started in Sylhet from the morning of this day. Light rain fell as of the writing of this report at 11am. The cut-off time of the match was 11:27. But before that, the umpires observed the situation and announced the shutdown of the game at 10:53. Bangladesh and Emirates each got one point. Had the match been played, Bangladesh could have reached the semi-finals had they beaten the Emirates by some margin, the hosts were quite ahead in run rate. But that opportunity was no longer due to the sharing of points. Bangladesh’s points in 6 matches are 5. Thailand advanced to the semifinals for the first time with a one point lead. And as darkness surrounds the hosts, the light shines in the Thai camp.
However, Bangladesh lost their best chance the previous day. 41 runs needed to win the match in 7 overs against Sri Lanka by DLS method. But Bangladesh lost the match by rain by three runs. The unplanned hitting in the pursuit of runs brings the representatives of red and green to despair. Bangladesh lost the match by losing 4 wickets in one over due to an incredible batting collapse. But earlier, Jahanara Alam, Salma Khatunra stopped Sri Lanka from bowling. Sri Lanka’s total was 83 in 18.1 overs. After that, they were no longer beaten in the rain. Bangladesh couldn’t match the changing equation.
Bangladesh defeated Malaysia and Thailand in 6 Asian Cup matches. Matches lost to India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. In 2018, girls from Bangladesh won the Asian Cup by beating India twice. Not being able to go to the semi-finals this time is a big failure for the team. The line-up for the semi-finals has also been determined as Bangladesh has departed. Thailand will play India in the first semifinal tomorrow at 9:00 am. Pakistan and Sri Lanka will compete to reach the final at 1.30pm on the same day. In the second match of the day yesterday, Bismah Maruf’s Pakistan booked the ticket to the semi-finals by beating Sri Lanka. The Lankans were bowled out for 112 runs in 18.5 overs for Omaima Sohail’s 5 wickets. In response, by playing equal overs, Pakistan reached the goal by taking 5 wickets.
