Bangladesh ended the World Cup with a loss

Bangladesh ended the seventh edition of the T20 World Cup with a loss. Bangladesh lost to Australia by 8 wickets in their fifth and final match in Group-1 of Super Twelve today.

Bangladesh lost all five matches in the Super Twelve. Bangladesh won two of the three matches in the qualifying round.

In this match, Australian leg-spinner Adam Jumper was knocked out by spin and batted in 15 overs and Bangladesh was all out for only 63 runs. The Tigers were all out for less than 100 runs in two consecutive matches. In the previous match, Mahmudullah’s team was all out for 6 runs against South Africa.

Jampa took 5 wickets for 19 runs in 4 overs. In reply, Australia won the match by batting 7.2 overs. Australia finished second in the table with 6 points from 3 wins in 4 games.

After losing the first four matches in the semi-finals, Bangladesh will play a change in the Australian XI at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Thursday in the hope of making the end of the World Cup better. Cutter master Mustafizur Rahman returned to the XI instead of spinner Nasum Ahmed who played in the previous match.

Bangladesh lost the toss and elected to bat first. Striking opener Mohammad Naeem struck out another opener Liton Das with one run off the second ball of the first over. Liton was bowled by Australian fast bowler Mitchell Starc in the first over. Inside Edge breaks the ball stump, Liton returns empty handed after playing 1 ball.

The majestic government came to the wicket after Liton’s farewell. In the third ball of the second over, Soumya hit a boundary between Josh Hazelwood between a short mid-wicket and a mid-on. But at the end of the same over, he got bowled due to misfortune like Liton. Soumya returned to the pavilion after hitting the ball stump with the inside edge.

Bangladesh lost 2 wickets for 6 runs from 10 balls and started shaking. That caprice is further exacerbated by the failure of the experienced Mushfiqur Rahim. This time Mushfiqur did not get out after playing reverse sweep, sweep or scoop shot. Mushfiqur missed the ball line while playing on the delivery frontfruit of Australian spinner Glenn Maxwell and got leg before. Mushi, who scored 1 run from 2 balls, did not take the opportunity to review.

Mushfiqur’s dismissal put Bangladesh under pressure for 10 runs. Naeem and captain Mahmudullah tried to remove this pressure. They were on the way to form a partnership. Naim hit two fours to Australian fast bowler Pat Cummins in the fourth over. Mahmudullah picked up two fours in the last two deliveries of the next over by Stark.

Naeem started the sixth over with a boundary. However, Josh Hazlewood stopped Naeem in the third ball. Cummins was caught in the square leg by the set batsman Naim. Naeem made 17 runs in 3 fours off 16 balls.

Afif Hossain was dismissed for the first ball he faced in the previous match. This time, playing in a defensive manner, Afif caught Aussie captain Aaron Finch on the slip with the ball of Australian spinner Adam Jumper. In the second match in a row, Afif returned to the pavilion empty handed.

After Afif’s dismissal as the fifth batsman for 33 runs, Bangladesh was in danger of collapsing quickly. Shamim Hossain attacked the Australian bowlers to allay that fear. In the ninth over, Shamim hit a six with a great shot over the deep square leg. He hit four fours in his previous over. Bangladesh dreams of recovering from the devastation.

But Jampa stood in the way of returning to the Bangladesh match. He dismissed Shamim and Mahedi Hasan in the last two balls of the 11th over. Shamim caught behind the wicket to cut. And Mahdi was out before leg. Not being able to run, Mahedi could not live with the review. Shamim scored 19 runs off 16 balls with one four and six.

Australia took the seventh wicket for 72 runs and paved the way for Bangladesh to wrap up quickly. Mahmudullah was the only obstacle in that way. Mahmudullah’s farewell bell rang in the 13th over. Mahmudullah made 18 runs off 17 balls in 2 fours.

Mahmudullah was dismissed as the eighth batsman for 75 runs. After that, Jampa picked up the last two wickets of the Tigers and bowled out Bangladesh for 63 runs in 15 overs. This is the second lowest run of Bangladesh team in the World Cup stage. Even in their own T20 history. At the same time, this is the lowest run of the Tigers against Australia. Jampa took five wickets for the first time in his 54-match career with this innings.

The last two batsmen Mustafizur 4 and Shariful Islam scored zero runs. Taskin Ahmed remained unbeaten on 7 runs. In addition to jumpers, Stock-Hazelwood and Maxwell have contributed to the quick return of Bangladeshi batsmen. Stark-Hazelwood took 2 wickets and Maxwell took 1 wicket.

Bangladesh openers David Warner and skipper Aaron Finch hit the Bangladesh bowlers with an easy target of 64 runs to win. Despite 23 runs in 3 overs, Warner-Finch took 21 runs from Mustafizur Rahman in the fourth over.

Finch hit two sixes in the third and fourth balls of Taskin’s fifth over. However, at the end of the same over, Taskin took the wicket of Finch. Finch made 40 off 20 balls with 2 fours and 4 sixes.

Shariful gave Bangladesh its second victory in the next over. He bowled Warner. Warner made 16 off 14 balls with three fours before being dismissed.

Warner was out for 6 runs away from victory. Mitchell Marsh ensured Australia’s victory by hitting fours and sixes in the first ball of the seventh over. Marsh scored an unbeaten 18 off 5 balls with 2 fours and 1 six.

Bangladesh’s Taskin took 1 wicket for 36 runs in 3.2 overs. Shariful took 1 wicket with 9 runs in 1 over. Mustafizur was wicketless with 32 runs in 2 overs.
