Bangladesh paid the price for the mistake

Bangladesh’s power play batting in the first two matches of the series against Afghanistan was questionable. The Bangladesh team overcame that problem in the third ODI. Tamim-Liton scored 43 runs in the power play without losing any wicket.

But in the very next over of the power play, the story began to change. After the departure of captain Tamim, Liton Das and Shakib Al Hasan dreamed of a big collection, but the middle order of the Bangladesh team suddenly collapsed. In the end, Bangladesh team was all out for 192 runs.

Shakib pulled the ball outside the off stump at the head of the team’s 104 runs. Azmatullah Omarzai did not allow the short innings of 30 runs to be long. After that the Afghan spinners became terrible. Rashid Khan got caught in the middle order of the Bangladesh team. Mushfiqur Rahim and Yasir Ali were palpated in the slip fielder in a great leg spin.

Liton, however, tried to handle the collapse with Mahmudullah. Batting comfortably, he was on his way to another ODI century. The run rate slowed down a bit when the wicket fell. Lytton’s long innings at that time was very important. But he could not meet the demands of the time. In the 36th over, Liton caught Mohammad Nabi for 6 runs at mid-wicket. Afif Hossain also got out after hitting Nabi’s ball.

Mahmudullah held one end but the run-out hit the other side. Mehedi Hasan Miraj, Shariful Islam and Mostafizur Rahman went back to the dressing room after being run out. Bangladesh’s innings of 192 runs with 19 balls left in the innings due to their own misunderstanding. Mahmudullah remained unbeaten on 29 runs. Rashid Khan took maximum 3 wickets. Off-spinner Mohammad Nabi took 2 wickets in 10 overs.
