To give Bangladesh a chance to reach the semi-finals, they had to win their last two league stage matches. Due to the craze of the World Cup, I flew all the way from New York to the UK, hoping to see these matches in Bangladesh. Sadly, this did not happen. But besides the odd mistake, it was very worthwhile to see Bangladesh’s fighting spirit.
It is very cute to see Rohit Sharma as a neutral fan. The drop of Tamim Iqbal gave the audience an opportunity to see Rohit in a sublime form. Mustafizur Rahman returned to the attack in the 24th over and Rohit gave him a straight six, and all of us went ‘he’.
Mustafizur’s last spell was fantastic. For the double-wicket, in which he took Virat Kohli and Hardik Pandya, he stopped India with a possible 350+ score. After scoring 34 runs in his first five, he took 5 for 25 in his remaining overs.
Things i would have changed
Certainly missed a catch from Tamim who gave a reply to Rohit. Which defined the match. And for a fan of Bangladesh, it was painful to see the way out of the Soumya government. It was small outside the off-stump, and he hit Kohli on the extra cover straight away!
It was not the best day for the most experienced players of both sides: Musharraf Murtaza and MS Dhoni. It was disappointing to see the mushroom in the field. Dhoni scored four runs at that time, and the mascaraf ran difficult. And he later changed the posts. It was difficult for the mascara lovers to take it.
Dhoni is no longer a great ODI finisher, he was once. When he refused to single on the first two balls of Mustafizur’s last over and then got out on the third, some fans of India commented that it was time to retire.
Two greats of India and Bangladesh, Sudhir Gautam and Tiger Shoaib came together in the field. Even Pakistan fan uncle was around cricket. We play the game for this unity, not to make enemies. It was so cute to see. .
Were quite low. Bangladesh pro-banner who caught my eye, “With the mascara’s leadership, Fiji will cut the opponent, Mushfikur will give dependence and Shakib on number one will win!”. Oh, how do i wish
I really wanted to see Bangladesh winning the match. Only if there were some “ifs”. Hopefully winning against Pakistan will be a consolation.
