In their fifth match in the World Cup, Bangladesh lost 3 wickets for 32 runs, including the mountain given by South Africa. Today, Bangladesh lost two wickets in two consecutive balls.
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. The very next ball of Tamim’s dismissal, Shanto was caught by Heinrich Klaasen off Jansen and went back to 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.
Before that, South Africa won the toss and went into bat with 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.
