In an Emerging Asia Cup game on Saturday at the Sinhalese Sports Club in Colombo, Bangladesh A beat their Omanis opponents by eight wickets.
The team led by Saif Hassan still has a chance to make it to the playoffs, even though they lost their first game against Sri Lanka on Thursday.
Bangladesh A won the toss and stopped Oman from scoring many runs in the first few overs. It took Oman until the ninth over to reach double digits. At that point, Oman had lost two wickets, and their captain, Aqib Ilyas, was out for nothing.
Even though they were too careful, it kind of worked because Oman got to 99 with only four wickets lost in the 35th over. But after Mahmudul Hasan Joy sent Shoaib Khan (23) back to the hut, the rest of their game went apart, and they were all out after 46 overs with 126 runs.
Bangladesh A’s best bowler was the fast bowler Tanzim Hasan Sakib, who helped clean up the tail with his 4-18.
In response, Tanzid Hasan Tamim hit two sixes and 11 fours on his way to 68 off 49 balls. This was his second fifty in as many games in the event, and Mohammad Naim got 47 off 42 balls as Bangladesh A easily reached their goal after 16.3 overs.
