Twitter Trolls Bangladesh As They Lost Their Opening Game In 2021 T20 WC

The Bangladesh cricket team had a ton of momentum on their side heading into the Round 1 of the ICC T20 World Cup 2021. The Asian team defeated Australia and New Zealand in home T20I series, which would have taken their confidence to the next level. However, the 2016 Asia Cup T20 runners-up started their T20 World Cup 2021 campaign on a losing note against the Scotland cricket team.

Yesterday night in Oman, Bangladesh captain Mahmudullah won the toss and decided to field first. The decision seemed to be the right one as the Bangladeshi bowlers reduced the Scots to 53/6 in 11.3 overs. Scotland’s experienced T20 stars namely George Munsey, Kyle Coetzer, Richie Berrington, Matthew Cross, Callum MacLeod and Michael Leask were back in the hut.

Chris Greaves turned the tables in Oman

All-rounder Chris Greaves then came to Scotland’s rescue. The all-rounder, playing for the first time in a T20I match against Bangladesh, smashed a 28-ball 45 to take the team’s score past 100. Mark Watt supported him with a 17-ball 22 as the Scots finished with 140/7 in the first innings.

This target was not a big one, considering that the Bangladeshi team had quite a few experienced names in their batting lineup. However, Greaves, Watt and Josh Davey made it challenging for the Bangladeshi team.

Brad Wheal’s 3-wicket haul stunned Bangladesh

Brad Wheal bowled a terrific spell of 3/24 in four overs, dismissing Liton Das, Mahmudullah and Nurul Hasan. He received support from all-rounder Greaves who took two wickets, in fact, the two most crucial wickets of Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim.

The match went down to the last over, with Bangladesh requiring 24 runs off the final six balls to win the contest. However, Safyaan Sharif bowled a decent over and gave away only 17 runs as Scotland started their campaign with a win.
