Bangladesh started the World Cup with a great win against Afghanistan in Dharamsala. After that, the red-green jersey holders played six matches in four other venues; In all of which the partner has lost. Bangladesh finally got victory in Delhi after 29 days. This is Bangladesh’s second win in the current season.
Bangladesh is on the verge of victory
Bangladesh has nothing much to gain in the current World Cup. In the meantime, Bangladesh’s departure from the World Cup is confirmed. Now is the chance for the top eight in the points table to secure direct participation in the 2025 Champions Trophy. For that purpose, Bangladesh is on the verge of winning the match against Sri Lanka.
Shakib-Shant in the dressing room with the regret of the century
Both Nazmul Hossain Shanto and Shakib Al Hasan had a chance to score their first century in this World Cup. But after Shakib, Shanto also lost that opportunity. Shakib 82 and Shanta 90 runs returned to Sajghar.
Shakib returned with regret
After losing two wickets for 45 runs, captain Shakib Al Hasan formed a great partnership with Nazmul Hossain Shanto. Bangladesh was progressing with the pair of 169 runs of these two batsmen. However, after the team’s 210 runs, Shakib took a catch from Mathews and returned to the dugout. Scored 82 runs off 65 balls before getting out.
Bangladesh is looking to win
The failure of the batsmen is largely responsible for the failure of Bangladesh in the current World Cup. However, Bangladesh at least showed their ability against Sri Lanka. Bangladesh is on the way to victory with the bats of two experienced batsmen Nazmul Hossain Shanto and Shakib Al Hasan. After losing two wickets at the end of 30 overs, Bangladesh collected 206 runs.
Shakib-Shantar Bangladesh is running with the bat
Batting with a target of 280 runs, Bangladesh quickly lost two wickets and was under a lot of pressure. However, with the bat of Shakib Al Hasan and Nazmul Hossain Shantar, Bangladesh is moving forward with the pressure. Bangladesh score 142 runs at the end of 22 overs.
Liton returned to the dressing room after Tamim
Bangladesh’s batting in the World Cup was not good at all. Bangladeshi batters are disappointing in every match. Two openers Liton Das and Tanjid Hasan Tamim could not shine against Sri Lanka. No one could make the innings bigger even with a good start. Bangladesh lost two batsmen for just 45 runs.
Tamim in the dressing room at the beginning
Bangladesh took opener Tanjid Tamim to the World Cup mission with high hopes. But that expectation was not fulfilled. Apart from the match against India, his bat did not smile in any match. That streak continued against Sri Lanka. Tamim returned to Sajghar by taking a catch in the hands of Nishanka off the ball of Madhushankar. He scored 9 runs off five balls before the out.
Sri Lanka gave Bangladesh a challenging target
Bangladesh got off to a great start by picking up five wickets from the Lankans for 135 runs. But due to the lack of controlled bowling by the bowlers, the Lankans made some great pairs. Which has played a major role in building their challenging collection. The Lankans stopped at 279 runs on the scoreboard after losing all wickets in 49.3 overs.
Thiksana was returned by Shariful
Sri Lanka was under a lot of pressure after losing the sixth wicket for 213 runs. However, the Lankans formed a great pair again with the bat of Asalanka-Thiksana. Another 45 runs came from this pair. Finally, the right-handed batsman was caught by Nasum while picking up Shariful’s ball for the team’s 258 runs.
Mirage broke the pair back to Silva
Bangladesh put Sri Lanka under pressure by picking up two wickets for 135 runs. From there, the Dhananjaya-Asalanka pair handled the situation brilliantly. 78-run pair scored two hundreds. Mehdi Hasan Miraj breaks this pair up before it gets even scarier. Dhananjaya de Silva was stumped while playing after leaving the wicket. He made 34 with 36 before returning.
Sri Lanka suddenly under pressure after losing a couple of wickets
Sri Lanka was under a lot of pressure after losing three wickets for the team’s 72 runs. At times the Lankans turned around with the bat of Samaravikrama. However, Shakib sent back Sadira Samarawickrama with the first ball of the 25th over. Mathews took the way to Sajghar after getting time out on the next ball. The Lankans lost five wickets for the team’s 135 runs.
Shakib-Tanjim bowling Bangladesh returned to the fight
Sri Lanka got a great pair over the initial shock. Pathum Nishanka and Kushal Mendis, who got down to one down, suffered the Bangladeshi bowlers. When the three pacers could not break this pair, Shakib came to the rescue. He took the wicket of Kushal Mendis in his first over. Shakib stopped Kushal Mendis for 19 runs.
The next success of the captain was Tanjim Shakib who got a chance in the XI. He took the wicket of Pathum Nishankar when he came to the bowling. Bangladesh returned to the fight by picking up three wickets from the Lankans for 72 runs.
Bangladesh started by breaking the opening pair of Lankans
Today is a battle of dignity for both parties. Also at the bottom of the points table. Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hasan won the toss and sent Sri Lanka to bat in such a match. However, the bowling selection has started well for Bangladesh. Shariful Islam, who opened the bowling innings, took the wicket of Kushal Perera in the first over. The team broke the opening pair of Lankans for 5 runs, Perera scored 4 runs. However, Sri Lanka put up resistance in the next wicket pair despite the shock at the start.
Finally Tanjim Shakib in Bangladesh XI
Although Bangladesh has already played seven matches in the World Cup, Tanjim Hasan Shakib has not entered the field even in a single match. Bangladesh faced Sri Lanka in the World Cup on Monday (November 6). Shakib got a chance in the XI for the first time. Through this, the young pacer is making his debut in the World Cup. Mustafizur Rahman was dropped from the XI to make room for him.
Considering the World Cup, this match of Bangladesh is not important. Same is the case with Sri Lanka. Farewell is confirmed for both parties. However, the battle is now for a place in the Champions Trophy. Bangladesh is facing Sri Lanka today with that equation in mind. Captain Shakib Al Hasan won the toss and chose to bowl at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi.
Shakib said as the reason for choosing to bowl, ‘The pitch looks like it will be a bit difficult to bowl in the evening. That’s why bowling first. I hope Bangladesh will fight in today’s match and we will win the match.
