Bangladesh’s Win In NZ Will Change Notion Of Over-Depending On 4-5 Seniors: Shakib Al Hasan

Bangladesh created history earlier this week by beating the Black Caps, the reigning World Test Champions, by eight wickets to capture their first-ever win in New Zealand.

Bangladesh’s historic victory in New Zealand proves that the youngsters in the team are capable of handling responsibility and the side doesn’t always rely on the same 4-5 senior players to win matches, says premier all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan, who didn’t feature in the ongoing 2 matches Test series.

Bangladesh’s Spinner Shakib Al Hasan Credits Youngsters For Maiden Test Win Vs NZ And Feels The Notion That Always 4-5 Seniors Can Win Games Will Be Changed

Bangladesh created history by beating New Zealand, the reigning inaugural World Test Champions (2019-21), by eight wickets to capture their first-ever win on New Zealand soil. The 34-year-old was delighted by the fact that Bangladesh began 2022 with a maiden Test win over New Zealand after a difficult 2021, where they lost five out of seven Tests.

“I don’t think my presence was necessarily important (in New Zealand). I am actually happy that they did it without me. Not just me (but the others too),” Shakib, who withdrew from the series, was quoted as saying.

“I think what really delighted me was that the notion, particularly in the media, that not many players apart from the four or five senior ones can win games for the team — that will be changed. If they are handed the responsibility, these youngsters will play better.”

The 34-year-old former skipper feels while the maiden win at the Bay Oval will not change things drastically, it will open an opportunity for change. Shakib Al Hasan, who withdrew from the tour to spend time with his family, said that the victory proves the visitors don’t have to rely just on the senior players alone.

“We made an unbelievable start to 2022. I am very happy. Credit goes to all the players and coaching staff for playing well under so much pressure and in these conditions. Everyone tried hard.”

“This was always going to be a challenging year after a difficult time in 2021 for us. I hope we can continue in this manner. Bangladesh does not play this well all the time. “Not everything will change after a Test win. But it creates the opportunity for change. I think if we can hold onto this belief, particularly the BCB, we can do well in the World Test Championship,” Shakib said.

Speedster Ebadot Hossain put up a sensational display, taking a career-best 6-46, while his fellow pacers also played their part as the Bangladesh pace unit snared 13 wickets, the most it has ever bagged in a Test match.

Mashrafe Mortaza Delighted By Pacers Performances In The 1st Test

Another former skipper Mashrafe Mortaza was also delighted by the performance of the pacers.

“Taskin (Ahmed) and Ebadot proved that if they put in the hard work, they can improve. It is good to see the pacers winning a game for us, but this win doesn’t necessarily answer all the questions,” Mortaza said.

“This is not a reply to all the criticism in recent times. Rather, we should learn from this, that we can win matches if we give players the opportunity. Cricket boards should invest and see what’s happening so that it could bring better results in the future.”

Citing Ebadot Hossain’s case, Mashrafe Mortaza highlighted the need to give a player time to perform.

“Ebadot’s improvement isn’t recent. He has been playing for a while and has been kept in consideration in Tests. He must have been given assurance that he will play. He knows this is his career, his future. He has to serve the team.”

“Ebadot’s wickets won us the game. It could have been a drawn game. You have to give the player a bit of time. He got set slowly. Rahi has been giving service for a long time (unclear). Giving them a bit of time always brings a good result.”

He also pitched the idea of using Mirpur to develop fast bowlers.

“I think they could look at Mirpur to help the fast bowlers since the ball here goes up and down. It, however, depends on how much you depend on the fast bowlers. So it is good that the pacers won us the game.”

This was Bangladesh’s first-ever win on New Zealand soil in 32 matches across all formats and in the end, it was pretty comfortably done by the tourists. Devon Conway had scored 122 in the 1st innings but the duo of Bangladesh skipper Mominul Haque(88) and Liton Das(86) ensured Bangladesh get a handsome lead in the 1st innings before Ebadot Hossain ensured New Zealand be restricted to only 169 in their 2nd innings.

Bangladesh 458 (Mominul 88, Litton 86, Boult 4-85) and 42 for 2 (Shanto 17, Mominul 13*, Mushfiqur 5*) beat New Zealand 328 (Conway 122, Nicholls 75, Shoriful 3-69, Mehidy 3-86) and 169 (Young 69, Taylor 40, Ebadot 6-46, Taskin 3-36) by eight wickets

In the ongoing 2nd Test, Tom Latham (186) was the highlight but Devon Conway (99) too played a delightful knock. The platform though was set by the opening stand as they added 148. Will Young also looked all set for a big score but he fell. Devon Conway and Tom Latham then have built an unbeaten 200-run stand. Tom Latham is eyeing a double ton whereas Devon Conway is one short of his hundred. New Zealand is 349/1 at Stump’s on Day 1.

Ebadot Hossain: Bangladesh’s Maiden Win Against New Zealand Will Inspire Next Generations

Ebadot Hossain, Bangladesh pacer said that their win over inaugural World Test Championship 2019-21 winners New Zealand will inspire the next generations to do the same.

Ebadot Hossain picked up a six-wicket haul in the second innings as Bangladesh defeated New Zealand by eight wickets in the first Test at the Bay Oval, Mount Maunganui on Wednesday.

Ebadot Hossain: Victory Over New Zealand Will Inspire The Next Generations

Ebadot Hossain has become a household name overnight in Bangladesh after his stupendous performance with the ball in his side’s historic win against New Zealand in the first Test at Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui. He picked up six wickets in the second innings as the visitors bowled out the Kiwis for just 169 runs and later they wrapped up the Test match losing just two wickets in the first session on the final day.

“We have come here for the last 11 years and not won a game. When we came this time, we set a goal and we said to ourselves we can do it. New Zealand are Test Champions and if we beat them then it will inspire the next generation to do the same,” said Ebadot Hossain after the game at the post-match presentation.

Talking about his rise and improvement, Ebadot Hossain gave credit for his success to the bowling coach Ottis Gibson saying that he has been learning how to bowl in overseas conditions.

“I have been working hard with Ottis Gibson. The conditions are too flat in Bangladesh and we are still learning how to bowl away from home. I am a soldier of Bangladesh and know how to celebrate (after a wicket). My journey from volleyball to cricket is a long story. I am enjoying my cricket,” he added.

Ebadot Hossain was adjudged the Player of the Match for taking 7 wickets in the game as the resounding win for the Bangla Tigers was followed by ‘one of the best post-match interviews ever’ from the tall pacer as he was his candid and honest best. The 27-year old pacer said that the team set a goal this time to beat the World Test Champions on their own soil and they had the belief that they can do it.

Bangladesh Registered First Test Victory Over New Zealand

With this win, Bangladesh has become the first team to defeat New Zealand in New Zealand a Test match since March 2017. This is also Bangladesh’s first Test victory over the BlackCaps. Bangladesh, a team at the lowest of ebbs only last month when they were swept at home by Pakistan, has taken down the world champions, mighty New Zealand, by eight wickets in the first Test in Mount Maunganui.

It’s the first time Bangladesh has beaten New Zealand in Tests, ending the hosts’ 17-match unbeaten home record. This is also the first time Bangladesh has beaten New Zealand in any format in New Zealand. It’s Bangladesh’s sixth overseas Test win – anywhere.

Needing 40 runs for the win, Bangladesh wrapped up the chase in overs with Mominul Haque (13*) and Mushfiqur Rahim (5*) remaining unbeaten at the crease. For New Zealand, Tim Southee and Kyle Jamieson picked up one wicket each in the second innings.  This was Bangladesh’s first-ever win on New Zealand soil in 32 matches across all formats and in the end, it was pretty comfortably done by the tourists.

Devon Conway had scored 122 in the 1st innings but the duo of Bangladesh skipper Mominul Haque(88) and Liton Das(86) ensured Bangladesh get a handsome lead in the 1st innings before Ebadot Hossain ensured New Zealand be restricted to only 169 in their 2nd innings.

Bangladesh 458 (Mominul 88, Litton 86, Boult 4-85) and 42 for 2 (Shanto 17, Mominul 13*, Mushfiqur 5*) beat New Zealand 328 (Conway 122, Nicholls 75, Shoriful 3-69, Mehidy 3-86) and 169 (Young 69, Taylor 40, Ebadot 6-46, Taskin 3-36) by eight wickets

Tamim Iqbal Ruled Out Of New Zealand Tour Due To Thumb Injury

Tamim Iqbal, Bangladesh opener, has been ruled out of their two-Test series in New Zealand in January because of a thumb injury, as per a report on Tuesday. It’s been more than four months since the Tigers’ left-hander last played international cricket.

The report quoted Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) chief physician Debashish Chowdhury as saying Tamim Iqbal would need a month’s rest to recover from the injury he picked up last month. Debashish Chowdhury said that the 32-year-old will need the rest of one more month to get back to shape.

Tamim Iqbal Ruled Out Of Bangladesh’s Both 2 Test Series Against Pakistan And New Zealand

Last week, Tamim Iqbal, who opted out of this year’s Twenty20 World Cup, citing a lack of game time as he recovered from a knee injury, was ruled out of Bangladesh’s two-Test home series against Pakistan, which starts on Friday, due to the injury.

“He met the physician and they have advised him to take a one-month rest though he won’t require any surgery,” Chowdhury told Cricbuzz.

“In that case, he’s missing the New Zealand tour.”

Bangladesh is due to play the first Test against New Zealand at Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui from Jan. 1, followed by the second match at Hagley Oval in Christchurch from Jan. 9. Both Tests will be part of the teams’ World Test Championship 2021-23 cycle.

Tamim Iqbal Opted Out Of T20I World Cup 2021

Tamim Iqbal, who last played for Bangladesh in an ODI match against Zimbabwe in July, had missed the entire T20 World Cup for the Tigers after he sustained a knee injury. The left-handed batsman opted out of the tournament in order to give a chance to the young openers like Mohammad Naim and Liton Das. Tamim Iqbal, who is also Bangladesh’s ODI skipper, said he learned he had a thumb fracture through X-ray reports.

With 4788 runs from 123 innings, Tamim Iqbal is currently the leading run-scorer for Bangladesh in the Test format. The southpaw also has 31 fifties and nine hundred to his name. Bangladesh played three T20I matches against Pakistan, all of which they lost before the two-Test matches are scheduled. The first Test match will be played between November 26-30  in Chattogram, followed by the second Test in Dhaka starting on December 4.

After finishing second in Group B, Bangladesh qualified in the 2021 T20 World Cup but lost all their Group 1 fixtures in the Super 12 stage. Veteran all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan was ruled out in the middle of the tournament owing to a hamstring injury, and his participation in the Pakistan series also remains doubtful.

The veteran all-rounder, though, has been picked in the Tigers’ squad for the opening Test against Pakistan, but his fitness will be assessed before the contest. Uncapped Mahmudul Hasan Joy and Rejaur Rahman Raja have been called up for the game.

Bangladesh Want To Go To 2021 T20I World Cup With Confidence: Shakib Al Hasan

Shakib Al Hasan believes Bangladesh has more than enough time to prepare for the T20 World Cup, and that the team will head to the upcoming tournament in UAE and Oman having built a “winning mentality” following recent series victories against Australia and New Zealand.
Bangladesh will arrive in Muscat at least two weeks ahead of their first match, while Shakib Al Hasan and Mustafizur Rahman will be playing the IPL’s UAE phase, which Shakib Al Hasan feels will help him collect intelligence for the team. Bangladesh is in preliminary Group B with Scotland, Papua New Guinea, and Oman for the tournament that begins on October 17 in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Shakib Al Hasan: Since Bangladesh Will Be In Oman At Least 15-16 Days Before T20I WC, Players Will Have Enough Time To Acclimatize

Bangladesh named all the players who completed a series win over New Zealand in their squad for next month’s Twenty20 World Cup. Mahmudullah Riyad will lead the side that took a 3-1 lead in the New Zealand series on Wednesday with one match still to play.
Bangladesh, with a mix of established performers and rising new stars, have fielded an unchanged side for the first four matches against New Zealand. Mohammad Naim and Liton Das retained their places as openers in the World Cup squad after established opener Tamim Iqbal declared himself unavailable.

“I am hopeful that the IPL will help everyone,” Shakib said. “We will be spending time in those conditions, play matches too. Mustafiz and I can share the experience with the rest of the team. We will understand the other players’ mindset, what they are thinking about the World Cup, and then report it back to our players.”
“Our team will be in Oman at least 15-16 days before the World Cup, which is enough time for acclimatizing with conditions and wickets. I don’t think pitches and conditions here will have any impact over there. We have built a winning mentality, which will help us be confident in the World Cup.”
Shakib Al Hasan, however, continued to criticize the pitches at the Shere Bangla National Stadium where Bangladesh won the last two T20I series against Australia and New Zealand. Shakib Al Hasan was one of four batters to score more than 100 runs in the two series, averaging 17.66 with a 97.54 strike rate batting in the top-order in nine games. The collective batting average in both series was 14.73 and 16.48 respectively.

Shakib Al Hasan: Bangladesh Well Prepared By Winning The Last 3 T20I Series

Shakib Al Hasan had said after the first match against New Zealand that the pitch was more difficult than the ones used in the preceding Australia series. He said that the batters will have to forget about playing in Dhaka if they are to do well in the T20 World Cup.
“Those who played the last nine-ten matches, are all out of form. That’s how the wicket was. Nobody did well. I hope the batters don’t count this performance. Careers will end if any batter plays 10-15 matches on these wickets. Let’s not take this into account. Everyone will try hard to win games for the country.”

“I think we are well prepared, by winning these last three (T20I) series. There’s been a lot of criticism about pitches and low scores, but there’s nothing better than winning. Such a winning streak takes confidence to a different level. You wouldn’t have it if you played well but lost. We want to go to the World Cup with confidence.”

In their last three T20I series, Bangladesh defeated Zimbabwe, Australia, and New Zealand. The side has gotten the experience of playing on low and spinning tracks and the same kind of surfaces can be expected in the T20 World Cup. Bangladesh will arrive in Muscat at least two weeks ahead of their first game, while Shakib Al Hasan and Mustafizur Rahman will be playing the IPL’s UAE phase.
All-rounder Shakib Al Hasan says Bangladesh will head to the 2021 T20 World Cup later this year full of confidence after series wins against Zimbabwe, Australia, and New Zealand. Bangladesh’s Twenty20 side defeated hosts Zimbabwe 2-1 in July, beat Australia 4-1 at home in August, and completed a 3-2 series victory against New Zealand in Dhaka on Friday.

Bangladesh Cricket Board Confirms Mustafizur Rahman Isn’t Interested To Play Tests

Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) introduced a format-wise contract on September 1, without handing one to Mustafizur Rahman for Test cricket. According to the Bangladesh Cricket Board, the 25-year-old ace pacer informed Bangladesh Cricket Board about his unavailability due to increased time spent in the bio-bubbles.

Ever earlier, Mustafizur Rahman had expressed his discomfort of playing continuous cricket in the bio-bubbles, now a norm during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Bangladesh Cricket Board’s Cricket Operations Chairman Akram Khan Said Mustafizur Rahman Isn’t Interested To Play Tests

Currently, he’s playing in the home T20I series against New Zealand and is soon expected to move to another bubble for Rajasthan Royals (RR) during the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021, which is resuming in September. He will then be entering another bubble for Bangladesh during the T20 World Cup.

Akram Khan, the former Bangladesh captain, and Bangladesh Cricket Board cricket operations chairman confirmed the development surrounding Mustafizur Rahman’s Test contract.

“Mustafizur is not interested to take part in Tests at the moment. He told us that it is difficult for him to concentrate on Tests, playing it under bio-bubble and so he does not want to take part in Tests at the moment. We have taken that decision very positively and have discussed it and accepted his request because he is a very important player for Bangladesh in the white-ball format,” said Akram Khan, Bangladesh Cricket Board Cricket Operations Chairman.

Mustafizur Rahman, one of the best pace bowlers in white-ball formats, has been a force behind Bangladesh’s success in recent years. The left-arm pacer has 127 wickets from 68 ODIs at an average of 22.83. In T20Is, he has 71 wickets from 49 matches at an average of 18.91.

He was one of the stars for Bangladesh in their 4-1 win in the T20Is against Australia last month. In fact, he has been exceptional in the shortest format in 2021, bagging 13 wickets from eight T20Is at an average of 11.69 and an economy rate of 5.46. He has played 14 Tests picking up 30 scalps averaging above 35.

Akram Khan Explains Bangladesh’s New Contract System

Akram Khan further explained the need for a new format-wise contract system for Bangladesh, keeping in mind players like Nasum Ahmed and Shamim Hossain, who are only a part of the T20I squad.

He explained: “We have introduced format wise contract because there are cricketers like Nasum and Shamim who are only part of T20s. Earlier if it was white ball that implied ODIs and T20s but now a new group is coming up who are only playing in T20s.”

Akram Khan added: “We have made different payment slabs based upon performance and we kept that so that there is competition between cricketers. When a cricketer is coming to Test from T20s there is a raise and similarly, when he is coming to ODIs there is some raise so players will be eager to perform so that he can be considered across formats.”

Mushfiqur Rahim, Shakib Al Hasan, Liton Das, Taskin Ahmed, and Shoriful Islam are the only five players who have been handed a contract across all three formats. Bangladesh cricket is currently enjoying a good run. Having secured a win after bowling out New Zealand for their joint-lowest T20I total of 60 in the first game, they are set to square off in the second match on Friday.

The Tigers won the first game of the series by seven wickets after they bowled the Black Caps out for a paltry 60 in a mere 16.5 overs. In the run-chase, the Tigers lost Mohammad Naim and Liton Das early but chased the target down with 30 balls to spare. Bangladesh has won the last T20I series against Australia (4-1) and the ODI series against Sri Lanka(2-1) and Zimbabwe (3-0).

Tamim Iqbal To Undergo Tests After Falling Ill During T20 Match

Tamim Iqbal, Bangladesh’s opening batsman, will be undergoing tests later after he fell ill after batting during the Bangabandhu T20 Cup match against Beximco Dhaka on Saturday.

The opener who is also captain of Fortune Barishal team did not take the field during team’s defence of 193, as Mehidy Hasan Miraz did the lead role in his absence, according to a report by ESPNCricinfo.

Tamim Iqbal Fell Ill But His Team Was Fortunate Enough

Fortune Barishal eventually won by 2 runs as Beximco Dhaka scored 191/6 despite Mohammad Naim scoring 105 off 64 balls to bag Man of Match award. 3 players scored 50 as Fortune Barishal scored 193/3 in stipulated 20 overs. Sohrawordi Shuvo returned with figures of 3/13 in the quota of four overs, but Taskin Ahmed, Sumon Khan and Kamrul Islam were expensive but somehow restricted Beximco Dhaka on 191/6.

Later in the day, Tamim Iqbal went on to clarify on social media site Facebook that he was not feeling well shortly after his dismissal in the match against Dhaka. The opener had scored 19 runs off 17 balls.

Tamim Iqbal Will Play Eliminator If He Feels Well But Will Undergo Tests As He Felt Weak After Being Dismissed Against Dhaka

The batsman revealed that he consulted with the Bangladesh Cricket Board’s (BCB) medical team after being dismissed. Then he returned to the bio-secure hotel in Dhaka midway during the match and didn’t take field afterwards. He scored 19 with the help of 2 fours before being dismissed by Al-Amin.

“I wasn’t feeling well since Friday. I felt even worse after I returned to the dressing room upon my dismissal. I was feeling very weak. BCB’s medical team advised me to immediately return to the team hotel, and a few overs after I was out, I left the stadium. I will undergo all the tests tomorrow,” Tamim Iqbal wrote on his Facebook account.

“I am seeking everyone’s prayers. If I am feeling well, I will play the Eliminator match,” Tamim Iqbal added.

In the Bangabandhu T20 Cup, Tamim Iqbal has scored 302 runs at an average of 43.14 with 2 fifties in 8 games, and he has led Fortune Barishal in all the matches except for the second half of the game against Beximco Dhaka. He is second highest run-scorer after Liton Das of Gazi Group Chattogram who has 306 runs in seven games.

Top 5 Opening Partners In Present Limited-Overs International Cricket

In cricket, the opening partner is very crucial in any batting line-up. To maintain success in international cricket, the confident opening partner is very important who can provide good starts for the batting side consistently. Due to the different demand in different formats, we can see different openers for a team in the Test, ODI and T20I formats.

In limited-overs cricket, the success of the batting side is very much depended on the strength of the opening partner.

Here we are talking about the top five opening partners in the present limited-overs international cricket.

Pakistan opening partner Fakhar Zaman and Imam-ul-Haq now play an important role for the batting side as they try to provide the good starts regularly. While both of them open in ODI cricket, they haven’t played as an opening partner in the T20I format yet.

While they have played as the opening partner in 33 ODI innings, their partnership has scored 1579 runs, with an incredible average of 50.93. At present, they are the fourth successful opening partner in Pakistan ODI history. They have already set up four 100+ partnerships and eight 50+ partnerships for the opening wicket, including their best opening partnership of 304 runs.

Bangladesh Vs Zimbabwe 2020: 1st ODI, Sylhet – Bangladesh Clinch Record Margin Victory

The hosts Bangladesh clinched their record margin victory in ODI history after beating Zimbabwe in the first game of the three-match ODI series at Sylhet.

On his international cricket return since the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Mortaza decided to bat first after winning the toss. While the hosts scored 321/6 (50 overs) in the first innings, Zimbabwe surrendered on 152 runs (39.1 overs).

Bangladesh won this match by 169 runs, and it is their largest ODI victory (by runs). Their previous record margin in this list was 163 runs against Sri Lanka at Dhaka on 19th January 2018.

Zimbabwe batsmen failed to put the fight

Chasing down the big total, only the debutant Wesley Madhevere (35) and Tinotenda Mutombodzi (24) scored 20+ runs in the second innings. From the beginning of that innings, Zimbabwe lost their wickets at regular intervals.

Among the Bangladesh bowlers, Mohammad Saifuddin (3/22) got three wickets while Mashrafe Mortaza (2/35) and Mehidy Hasan Miraz (2/33) claimed two wickets each. During that innings, Mashrafe Mortaza became the first Bangladesh ODI captain and fifth overall ODI captain to take 100 wickets.

Liton Das scored an incredible century for Bangladesh

Bangladesh opener Liton Das was the Player of the Match as he scored a solid century. Das first put the 60-run opening partnership with Tamim Iqbal (24). Though the next batsmen Najmul Hossain Shanto (29) and Mushfiqur Rahim (19) didn’t play the big knocks, they provided good partnerships with Liton Das (80 runs partnerships with Shanto for the 2nd wicket and 42 runs partnership with Rahim for the 3rd wicket).

During the third wicket partnership, Das completed his second ODI century in 95 balls. After scoring 123 runs off 105 balls (13 fours and 2 sixes), Das was retired hurt. Just a few balls before his decision to return to the dressing room, Das got a hit on his helmet on Donald Tiripano’s delivery. Though he hit a four and a sixer after that blow, he later decided not to continue his innings. Das didn’t appear in the second innings as Mushfiqur Rahim kept the wicket in the entire second innings.

Then, Mahmudullah and Mohammad Mithun built up the 68 runs partnership for the fourth wicket. While Mahmudullah scored 32 runs, Mithun scored 50 off 41 balls (5 fours and only sixer). At the late of that innings, Mohammad Saifuddin played the firing knock of 28 not out off 15 balls.

Among the Zimbabwe bowlers, only Chris Mpofu (2/68) managed to take more than one wicket.

India Vs Bangladesh 2019/20: Second Test (Day One) – Indian Cricketers Dominate The Historic Day

The hosts India totally dominated on a historic day one of the day/night pink-ball Test match against the visitors Bangladesh at Eden Gardens (Kolkata).

After winning the toss, Bangladesh captain Mominul Haque decided to bat first. But it was a horrific day for his team. The visitors were bundled out for just 106 runs. Meanwhile, the hosts India finished the night on 174/3 with the lead of 68 runs.

From the very beginning moment, the Indian team dominated over the visiting side. The Indian pacers totally unsettled the Bangladesh batting line-up. Apart from the opener Shadman Islam (29), wicketkeeper-batsman Liton Das (24 – retired hurt) and Nayeem Hasan (19), all other Bangladesh batsmen failed to reach the double-digit scores in that innings.

The visiting side Bangladesh lost their first five wickets in just 38 runs. Apart from the openers Shadman Islam (29) and Imrul Kayes (4), all other batsmen until no.5 failed to open their accounts. These three batsmen who were dismissed for a duck were skipper Mominul Haque, Mohammad Mithun and Mushfiqur Rahim.

The highest runs partnership in that innings was 22 runs for the sixth wicket between Mahmudullah and Liton Das. However, Mahmudullah also failed to reach the double-digit score as he was brilliantly caught behind after scoring just six runs.

Two blows resulted in two concussion substitution in the Bangladesh team on the day one

Soon after that wicket, two Bangladesh batsmen got the blows on their helmets. In the 21st over of that innings, Liton Das received a blow when he was facing the Indian pacer Mohammed Shami’s short-pitched bowling. While he felt uncomfortable, soon he decided to retire hurt and the lunch was called.

Soon after the lunch break, Nayeem Hasan became another victim. In the 23rd over of that innings, Mohammed Shami’s delivery hit on Nayeem Hasan’s helmet. As the Bangladesh physio was late due to the necessary caring on Liton Das, the Indian physio came on the ground to check Hasan.

However, Nayeem Hasan seemed better as he continued his innings. He hit three more fours (hit total four fours) after that blow.

In the end, both the injured players Liton Das and Nayeem Hasan were replaced with the concussion substitutes with Mehidy Hasan Miraz and Taijul Islam respectively. However, Taijul Islam didn’t bat in the first innings as Nayeem Hasan completed his innings.

Indian pacers took all the ten wickets in that innings. After 12 long years, Ishant Sharma managed to claim a Test five-wicket haul in India, which was his second Test five-wicket haul in India and 10th Test five-wicket haul in career. Ishant managed the bowling figures of 12-4-22-5.

Left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja bowled only one over (1-0-5-0) while off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin didn’t bowl in that innings.

In reply, the hosts lost both their openers Mayank Agarwal (14) and Rohit Sharma (21) cheaply. But Cheteshwar Pujara and captain Virat Kohli handled that initial situation very well as they provided the 94 runs partnership for the third wicket and both scored half-centuries.

Watch: Rishabh Pant’s Mistake Denies A Clear Stumping Of Liton Das

At the beginning of his international career, Rishabh Pant mostly became the special talking points for his successes. But now, most people are talking about Pant for his recent failures. In the ongoing Rajkot T20I, wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant made another mistake that denied an important wicket for India.

The 22-year-old Rishabh Pant is already under pressure for his recent struggles in international cricket. During the Delhi T20I on last Sunday (3rd November) night, Pant disappointed with his overall performances, especially using the DRS.

On Thursday (7th November), Rohit Sharma-led India are busy to play the Rajkot T20I against Bangladesh. It is the second T20I of this three-match T20I series. While Bangladesh won the Delhi T20I on last Sunday night, India can’t afford another defeat in this series.

After winning the toss, India decided to field first. Bangladesh openers Liton Das and Mohammad Naim provided a very good start for the visitors. After the first five overs of the game, Bangladesh scored 41/0.

Rishabh Pant grabbed the ball just ahead of the stumps

The Indian leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal came to bowl his first over of this match in the last over of the mandatory powerplay. On the third ball of that over, Liton stepped down to hit the ball but he completely missed and the wicketkeeper Pant made no mistake to break that wicket. It was looking like a very clear stumping but the drama started in the replay.

Replay showed that Pant broke that stumps perfectly, but mistakenly Pant took the ball just ahead of the stumps.

According to the law, the wicketkeeper must have to allow the ball to pass the stumps before taking it unless it has touched either the batsman or his bat first. But Pant’s gloves were marginally ahead from the striker-end wickets. So, that dismissal was denied by the third umpire and it was called a no-ball. Though it was completely an unintentional mistake from Pant, India and Chahal missed getting a deserving wicket.

Next ball was a free hit where Liton Das took that advantage and hit a boundary to Chahal.

However, soon after that, Pant ran out Liton Das (29 runs). Later, Pant also stumped the set batsman Soumya Sarkar (30 runs).

At the end of that first innings, Bangladesh managed the total of 153/6 (20 overs). Opener Mohammad Naim scored the highest runs in that innings which was 36 runs. Captain Mahmudullah also scored 30 runs at late of that innings.
