A Historic series win in the month of independence !!
March is the month of victory. In this month of victory, the Bangladesh cricket team has given an incredible series victory to all the cricket lovers of the country. They have done it this month of victory which they have never been able to do before. As a result, the level of happiness in the month of victory has increased manifold. Let's see the story of winning the series by winning the last match.
The Tigers won the last match of the three-match series by 9 wickets and tasted a series win against South Africa for the first time. After winning the first match in the African ground Centurion, Bangladesh lost the second match in Johannesburg. However, Centurion didn't have any effect on that rate. On Wednesday (March 23), Tamim Iqbal's team the undefeated finalist of the series won easily. Bangladesh beats the hosts by 9 wickets in the last match of the three-match series at Centurion yesterday. In reply to South Africa's 154 by losing all wickets, Bangladesh scored 156 for one in 26.3 overs.
After losing the toss, Bangladesh stopped the hosts by only 154 runs. You can say not Bangladesh, in fact, pacer Taskin Ahmed did this. Taskin is at the peak of his confidence, single-handedly took 5 wickets for the Proteas, also dismissing all the best batsmen. After Taskin Ahmed's fiery bowling, the victory was almost in the hands of Bangladesh. All that was left was a formality. The responsibility of finishing that formality falls on the shoulders of the batsmen. Batsmen also perform their duties properly.
After winning the toss at Centurion, Janemal Malan and De Kock batted for the hosts and made an opening partnership of 46 runs. All-rounder Mehdi Hasan Miraj was the first to hit the pair. Then came Taskin's attack. Kyle Verreynne returned with 9 runs after suffering the first injury. He then returned Malan to the pavilion for 39 runs.
In addition to the two wickets, Dwayne Pretorius scored 20, David Miller 18, and Kagiso Rabada 4 for Taskin's devastating bowling. With this, he took 5 wickets with 35 runs in 9 overs. This is the second 5 wickets of his career. Earlier, young star Taskin had taken five wickets in his debut match against India. At the end of the innings, Keshav Maharaj alone tried to raise a respectable score for the team. But in 35.6 overs, Yasir Rabbi dropped the catch of Maharaj in Shariful's over. However, he was run out for 28 in the next over as the last batsman by an excellent throw. South Africa was bowled out for 154 in 37 overs after losing all their wickets to Taskin Ahmed's devastating bowling.
In chasing the target of 155 runs, Tamim's fifty and Liton Das's impeccable batting gave the Tigers a huge victory with 9 wickets and 141 balls in hand. Tamim can still regret a little after winning by 9 wickets against them. The captain could have got that century if the opponent had scored some more runs.
As a result of this victory, Bangladesh adds 10 more valuable points to the Super League table. After playing 18 matches and winning 12 matches, 120 points are now for the red-green representatives. By this, they are at the top of the points table. England is in second place, but they are 25 points behind Bangladesh.
Such a victory in the month of independence is something to be proud of. This is proof that Bengalis don't give up on anything. I hope cricket in this country will go further in the future.
It's a great victory indeed and i can feel the joy in the hearts of occupants in Bangladesh who love cricket. I see this month of Independence is really coming with amazing benefits for you all. More wins are coming 🥰
