Even in the bright skies of Brisbane, unseen dark clouds were gathering. Nazmul Hossain Shanto gave a victory smile by removing the cloud of fear and Taskin Ahmed in the next part of the film. I have to say after saving my breath – the curse of peace in Brisbane has been lifted!
Bangladesh picked up their second win (in 3 matches) in the T20 World Cup Super Twelve. Semi-final hopes remain high. Of course, India and Pakistan are rivals in the middle of the dream. The fate of Bangladesh awaits at the Adelaide Ring. There are two games. Bangladesh Cricket Board chairman Nazmul Hossain Papon said after the game outside the stadium: “I wanted to win by a bigger margin. But the Netherlands and Zimbabwe played well. He also praised Taskin. Papon said – “Taskin played brilliantly.”
Bangladesh was crushed by Zimbabwe which lost to Pakistan. Bangladesh eliminated the match in a few places. With this victory of 3 rounds, the hope of the semi-finals is now alive. After winning the toss and batting, Bangladesh scored 150 runs for 7 wickets. Shant picked up an extraordinary fifty. In response, Zimbabwe stopped at 147 runs for 8 wickets. Taskin picked up 3 wickets for 19 runs and became a man of the match.
Bangladesh and Zimbabwe met for the first time in the T20 World Cup. And the name of the winning team in the first round in Bangladesh. Of course, the last ball was extremely dramatic. The fans were absolutely breathless. 5 strokes are needed from the last ball. Sohan puzzled Mujerbani. Players shook hands as they thought the game was over. The cricketers left the field in the joy that Bangladesh had won. The drama then began – the TV replay showed that the last ball was caught by Nurul Hasan Sohan in front of the wicket. Instead of crashing, the TV referee gave a ‘no’ ball.
Disappointed Bangladeshi camp. Muzarbani struck again with hope. At that time, 4 strokes were needed from one ball. But this time, the Tigers left the field with the joy of victory because there was no more running in the last ball. Mosaddeq took the win in the final over with a great delivery.
Bangladesh’s batting did not start well. It starts with some discomfort. Soumya Sarkar left without any race falling victim to Mujarabani. Nazmul Hossain Shanto was able to repay the confidence of the team management. He took Bangladesh in the right direction. His innings of 71 runs from 55 balls gave Bangladesh a fighting score. Its sleeves were decorated with 7 fours and 1 huge six. Shakib and Afif, however, made good efforts. Afif’s effort was 29 runs on 19 balls. Bangladesh reached the milestone of 150 points in this stick. Shakib, however, scored 23 runs on 20 balls. Zimbabwe’s Mujarabani and Ngarava took two wickets each.
Zimbabwean batsmen have fallen under Taskin’s baton. After the Netherlands and South Africa, Taskin shone against Zimbabwe. The fast right-arm bowler sent Madhebir (4) and Irvine (8), Zimbabwe’s most feared batsmen, to the pavilion. Taskin’s pressure on Zimbabwe was doubled by Mustafiz, who got lost. He dismissed Milton Sumba (8) and the formidable batsman of the season Sikandar Raja (0). Zimbabwe lost 4 wickets for 35 runs under pressure. Shaun Williams stepped in to fix the sleeves. He kept hope. When he came out for 64 balls from 42 (exhausted from Shakib’s throw), he kept Zimbabwe in orbit. Despite this, Zimbabwe has not given up. Ryan Berl looks horrible. However, he remained undefeated with 27 runs on 25 balls. Zimbabwe needed 16 runs on 6 balls in the final over. Burl takes a run on the first ball and goes to the other end. He did not have the opportunity to face other balls. Although he was the most fearsome drummer, there was nothing he could do. Mosaddeq and Mostafiz each have two wickets.
Taskin is the hero again. He has 8 wickets in three matches. This right-handed pacer flies in the T20 World Cup. Burned in three out of three matches. This time, if Bangladesh wants to go to the semi-finals, they have to qualify. India and Pakistan are great teams. Pakistan’s back is against the wall. And India is in top form. The Bangladesh cricket team will travel to Adelaide today with prospects ahead.
