428, 272, 284 and 399. The teams’ runs in the first innings of the four World Cup matches so far at Delhi’s Arun Jaitley Stadium. Bangladesh will play their eighth match in the World Cup at this stadium established in 1883. The opponent is Sri Lanka.
With this match between the two teams on November 6, Delhi Stadium is going to host their last match in the World Cup. The Bangladesh cricket team set foot in this city of Run festival in the afternoon. Opener Liton Das did not come with the team.
Liton returned to Dhaka from Kolkata on leave due to urgent family needs. He is scheduled to arrive in Delhi ahead of the team’s practice on November 3. This news was confirmed by the team’s media manager Rabid Imam.
Shakib opened the door to return home between the World Cup. Shakib returned to Dhaka from Mumbai on a three-day holiday. Back in Dhaka, the left-handed batsman worked on batting with his childhood coach Nazmul Abedin Fahim. Although he was supposed to work there for three days, he returned to Kolkata after two days.
Now Liton returned to Dhaka. After yesterday’s match against Pakistan, he set foot in Dhaka this afternoon. The reason for his return to Dhaka is different. Manager Rabid Imam told RisingBD, ‘He has been given short leave due to urgent family needs. Family Medical Emergencies. Bangladesh does not practice on November 2. The team will practice the next evening. He is scheduled to join earlier.’
The world saw the run festival in the fourth match of the World Cup. The Proteas scored 428 runs against Sri Lanka at the Arun Jaitley Stadium. Which is the highest team collection in the World Cup. Then Afghanistan scored 272 runs against India. Afghanistan also put up a great fight against England and scored 284 runs. The match they won by 69 runs. In the last match, Australia scored 399 runs against the Netherlands. In response, the Netherlands were bowled out for 90 runs due to batting failure.
Bangladesh is in extreme off-form as a team. The batsmen have no runs with the bat. Bowlers do not have wickets in their pockets. Before entering the field on the stage of the World Cup, there is a lot of helpless surrender. The cricketers are buried in the mountain of failure as they could not do well in any department.
Let’s see if he can remove that pile and conquer Delhi Fort. Opponent Sri Lanka is not doing very well either. They got only 2 wins in 6 matches. They host India tomorrow in Mumbai before playing against Bangladesh on November 6. If the hosts get the expected win in this match, Sri Lanka’s win-loss equation will be 2:5 before taking the field against Bangladesh.
