Against South Africa, Mahmudullah Riyad scored a personal century while the other Bangladeshi batsmen were busy coming and going. He is the first Bangladeshi cricketer to score a century in the current World Cup.
Coming down to bat against the target of 383 runs given by South Africa, the Bangladeshi batsmen seem to have forgotten to play their natural game. The two openers made a very good start when they came to bat for Bangladesh today. 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.
The only exception was Mahmudullah Riyad. He picked up a personal century today while the procession of coming and going in Bangladesh’s batting line-up left the other end. Bangladesh scored 233 runs with 111 runs in 46 overs losing all wickets. As a result, South Africa won by 149 runs. As a result of this victory, the Proteas won 4 matches out of 5 matches, while Bangladesh suffered a bitter taste of defeat in 4 matches out of 5 matches.
Today was the match to turn around after the hat-trick loss in the World Cup. But Bangladesh lost 6 wickets for just 81 runs and went to the brink of the abyss. From there, Mahmudullah saved the Bangladesh team from a more shameful defeat.
Before the match today, Shakib Al Hasan asked for prayers to win the toss. Because if the Proteas’ devastating batting line-up is sent out to bat early, there is every possibility of crushing runs. But the forehead is bad, Bangladesh had to field after losing the toss. And the fear came true. Protea stormed once again with the venomous bowling of Tiger bowlers at Sachin’s ground Wankhede in Mumbai. Quinton de Kock’s 174 runs, Aiden Markram’s 60 runs and Heinrich Klaasen’s 90 runs helped South Africa lose 5 wickets in the stipulated 50 overs and scored 382 runs.
The Proteas scored more than 300 in four of the five matches, including the match against Bangladesh. He made a world record by scoring 428 runs against Sri Lanka, and added 399 runs to the scoreboard with the English. Except for the match against the Netherlands, they have dismissed the bowlers in all the matches.
