Bangladesh in the circle of loss
One more match, one more loss! This image is now regular in the Bangladesh team. Shakib Al Hasan‘s side take on Pakistan in the tri-series at the Hagley Oval in Christchurch on Thursday. This match was a regulation match for the Tigers, whose dreams of the final had ended earlier. But they could win, the victory could be of confidence. But that hope is also crushed.
Bangladesh won the toss and batted well.
The Tigers also scored 173 runs thanks to half-centuries by skipper Shakib and Liton Kumar Das. But the bowlers gave away runs with the ball in hand. In the end, the target of 174 runs was easily surpassed by Pakistan, with 7 wickets in hand.
The Tigers ended the tri-series series by losing all the matches. The next mission is the T20 World Cup. Before boarding the plane from New Zealand to Australia, if we calculate what the Tigers have accumulated, nothing but disappointment will be found. In this tri-nation series, Shakib has lost all the matches.
However, before the start of the series, Bangladesh’s batting coach Jamie Siddons hoped that Bangladesh would show a strong fight even if they did not win. However, Shakib’s team could not show that in the entire series. Pakistan and New Zealand have won all 4 matches against the Tigers. As a result, even before the World Cup, Shakib should be worried!
