Today was the match to turn around after the hat-trick loss in the World Cup. But Bangladesh lost 6 wickets for only 81 runs and stood on the edge of the pit when they came down to bat against the target of 383 runs given by South Africa. Apprehension has arisen whether the party collection will be 100 or not.
The two openers made a very good start when they came down to bat against the target of 383 runs given by the Proteas. But after that, Bangladesh’s batting line-up collapsed like a house of cards. The cricketers were in procession. Shanta, Shakib, Mushfiq, none of these three batsmen could reach double figures today. As a result, Bangladesh lost 6 wickets for only 81 runs.
Liton Das and Tanjid Hasan Tamim, who came in to open for Bangladesh, continued to play carefully from the start. Neither played an aggressive shot. The speed of the run did not increase much. But kept the wicket.
But then there is a fall in rhythm. Tanjid Tamim and Nazmul Hossain Shanto returned to the court with two consecutive balls.
Tanjid Tamim went back to the dressing room after being caught by Marco Jansen for the team’s 30 runs. Scored 12 runs off 17 balls before getting out.
On the next ball of Tanjid Tamim, Shanto Jansen’s ball was caught by Henrich Klaassen and returned to Sajghar for zero runs.
Skipper Shakib also returned to the pavilion following the path of peace. Lizard Williams’ delivery at fast slip was caught by Heinrich Klaasen and returned. Heinrich Klaasen has taken three catches in today’s match so far.
After Shakib today, Mushfiq also went back to the dressing room very quickly. Gerald Coetzee was the victim of only 8 runs off 17 balls and returned to Sajghar.
Opener Liton Das made 22 runs off 44 balls and returned to the pavilion after being lbw by Rabadar. Bangladeshi cricketers are in a hurry to return to the dressing room today.
After 5 wickets fell for 58 runs, Mahmudullah Riyad formed a pair with Mehdi Hasan Miraj. But this pair could not go far.
This pair broke for 23 runs after the departure of Mehdi Hasan for the team’s 81 runs. Bangladesh lost 6 wickets for 81 runs in Mirage’s departure.
Earlier, after winning the toss and batting against Bangladesh, South Africa made 382 runs by losing 5 wickets in the scheduled 50 overs with the help of Quinton de Kock’s 174 runs, Aiden Markram’s 60 runs and Heinrich Klaasen’s 90 runs. Bangladesh is batting with a target of 383 runs to win.
