Bangladesh vs Ireland Live Cricket Score, Match 5, ICC World Twenty20 Warm-up Matches, 2021, October 14, 2021
Big goal in front of Bangladesh in the last preparation match
Bangladesh batsmen will have to travel a long way to win the second warm-up match. Ireland batted first in the second warm-up match of the T20 World Cup today, losing just 3 wickets and making a big collection of 18 runs. Gareth Delaney has taken a big test of the Tiger bowlers by batting for the team that won the toss. He played a great inning of unbeaten 6 runs in three innings.
In today's match in Abu Dhabi, Bangladesh will play without the regular captain of the team Mahmudullah Riyadh. However, pacer Mostafizur Rahman, who joined the team after the IPL, has entered the XI. However, it was not good for Fitz to return to the national team. I didn't see the wicket after bowling 4 overs, he gave 40 runs in reverse!
Like Mostafiz, fast bowler Shariful Islam and spinner Nasum Ahmed also bowled at cost. Nasum Paul Sterling got the wicket in 3 overs but gave 33 runs in 11 overs. Shariful's condition is worse. Did not get any wicket, but gave 41 runs in 4 overs! Bangladesh's most successful bowler, fast bowler Taskin Ahmed.
Taskin, who digested two fours in the first two balls of the innings, did not have a good start but the end was great. Taskin sent Irish captains Andrew Balberny and George Dockrell to the bathroom. However, the failure of the rest of the bowlers could not stop the Irish. Delaney pulled Ireland alone after Sterling returned with 22 and Balberny with 25. After completing his half-century off 33 balls, he continued to bat aggressively. 38 runs from the last 16 balls came from his bat. Harry Tector played a slow inning of 23 off 23 balls. However, the Irish got a big collection by relying on Delaney's bat.
Gayle has no more respect for Ambrose
Both are greats in West Indies cricket. However, Chris Gayle is very upset over a recent comment by Curtly Ambrose. Even Gayle has publicly stated that he has no more respect for Ambrose.
A few days ago on a radio show in Barbados, former West Indies legend pacer Ambrose said that Gayle is no longer the auto choice of the Caribbean team. He should not even get a place in the first XI of the T20 World Cup. Gayle was as "explosive" as his own batting in response to Ambrose's words.
"When I first got a chance in the West Indies team, I had a lot of respect for Ambrose," The Universe boss told The Island Tea Morning Session on St. Kitts radio station. Now I say to myself, what has happened to him since he retired. I don't know what his problem is with Chris Gayle. He always made negative remarks against me. I also don't know if the negative things he says in the media are meant to make headlines. But now I can say that I have no more importance or respect for him. '
Gayle did not stop there. When he finds Ambrose in front of him, he will say directly or face to face, ‘I have nothing more to say about Cartley Ambrose. I will tell him face to face, I have no more respect for you. And stop these criticisms. And just support the team ahead of the World Cup. We need support from the selected team (for the World Cup) and the former players. '
"Gayle still has the ability to be devastating with the bat," Ambrose said last week, attacking Gayle. However, I am not at all optimistic about his performance in the last 18 months. I also have doubts about whether he is the automatic choice of the World Cup team or not. Not only for the national team but also in other franchise tournaments in the world. He could not do anything even if he played for the country on home soil. '
Gayle, who once reigned alone in the T20s, is now really indebted to the weight of age. He was not seen making a sudden storm with the bat. He was not even in the regular XI of the Indian Premier League (IPL) this time. Gayle has scored only 226 runs in 16 Twenty20 matches this year. There is a half-century. However, the average of 16.48 is very inconsistent with his name
‘Want to play a World Cup to remember
Not just with the ball in hand, the occasional batting service from Saifuddin. New or old, he is the strike bowler of Bangladesh with the ball. And the bat often makes a storm at important times of the match. Needless to say, Mohammad Saifuddin will play one of the biggest strengths of Bangladesh in this year's T20 World Cup.
Saifuddin will step on November 25. This year's T20 World Cup is the first of his career. Despite playing in the 2019 ODI World Cup, Saifuddin has a special significance for this World Cup, ‘the feeling of playing on the world stage is always something special. Special to me. Although I will play ODI World Cup, this time I will play the first T20 World Cup. Of course, I want to make my first (T20) World Cup memorable. '
Bangladesh got a big holiday after the New Zealand series. However, Saifuddin continued the practice on his own initiative at that time. He is constantly working hard to bring out his best. This time, he hopes to succeed in both the batting and bowling divisions. If the batting is bad again, I try to make up for it by bowling. The day both will be bad, try to make both goods in the next match. All in all, I take the matter positively. I think with two roles, it's a great opportunity for me to contribute to the team. "
Saifuddin is more effective in slow wickets. However, the wicket of the World Cup will be sporting. Of course, this is not a problem for Saifuddin. Ulto said how stupid the batsmen are
It can be made, he is making that plan.
‘As a pace bowler, I have to adapt to all conditions and wickets. If the character of the pitch changes in the next match, I will try to give bouncer, slower, yorker or wide yorker accordingly. And every match is new. How I will do well in the new match, what I will do will make the batsmen confused, those are my thoughts. I inspire myself with positive thinking. '
The second World Cup for the country, this time Saifuddin has a lot of supporters. Saifuddin himself knows that. However, he has not yet set a specific goal as a measure of success. There must be an effort to do better. In batting, my responsibility is to increase the team score in power hitting. That effort will be in the World Cup. Trying this, you can see that my run is 6 with 2 balls.
Babar wants to start the World Cup by defeating India
Pakistan will have to face a tough test in the opening match of the T20 World Cup.
Pakistan could not beat India even once in the previous 12 matches on the world stage in ODI and T20 format. A tough challenge, but Pakistan captain Babar Azam is optimistic about winning the World Cup this time. In a virtual press conference, Babur said that his team wants to start the World Cup positively anyway. Babar expects a great start against India, "Our morale is very strong now. We want to lose to India and start the T20 World Cup positively. '
According to the Pakistan captain, if you can start a big international tournament with a win, then the match is 'momentum'. Which boosts team morale. Babur was so optimistic that the pre-World Cup preparations were going well, ‘We are preparing well at the High-Performance Center camp. The players also came close to the coaching staff and got into good shape. We are looking forward to a good start against India, a win that will give us the mental strength for the rest of the crucial matches of the World Cup. '
The Pakistan-India match means a different kind of tension. The age-old animosity between the two countries also has an impact on the field game. Which puts extra pressure on the players. Whether Pakistan takes that pressure too much or not, Pakistan has not won against India so far in the World Cup. This time, however, Babar wants to play against India by pushing away the word pressure, saying, "It is not wise to play a match under extra pressure. We are playing against our eternal rivals, which is again like the World Cup. So, we have to reach our desired goal through team motivation and team effort. '
Babar is currently in the top two in the ICC T20 batsmen's rankings. He will open the World Cup for Pakistan as he has a great rhythm. However, Babar said, understanding the situation may change the batting order. The right-handed top-order batsman said, "The batting order will depend on the match. May change at any time. But our plan is to open the innings with Rizwan. '
Babar is happy to have two experienced cricketers in Pakistan's World Cup squad like Mohammad Hafeez and Shoaib Malik. Referring to their match-winners, the Pakistan captain said, "Our team is made up of a mix of youth-experience. The inclusion of Malik and Hafiz has increased our strength. They are both match-winners and their experience will help us a lot in the World Cup. '
