At the second and final one-day international match of the day, which is taking place at Mirpur, Bangladesh is competing against New Zealand, and in order to win, they need to score 255 runs.
Tamim Iqbal is now 41 runs short of his 57th one-day international fifty (43 out of 53), while the Tigers’ new batter Mahmuduallah Riyad is currently at the crease. After 16 overs, the score is now 78 for four.
As soon as the captain, Liton Das (6), went out of the game in the first over, Tamim was joined by his namesake, Tanzid Hasan Tamim. Tanzid Hasan Tamim had potential up to the point when he was unfairly fired from his job.
Tanzid smashed three boundaries on his way to a score of 16 off of 12 balls faced before the defender in the infield at mid-off snagged his effort at a lofted drive in the infield.
Ish Sodhi, the spinner, fooled new batter Soumya Sarkar a few deliveries later in the same over, which resulted to an even easier dismissal — out caught and bowled after a forward-defensive stroke.
After that, Sodhi took out his third victim, who was Towhid Hridoy, by bowling him out with an inside edge. Towhid Hridoy was Sodhi’s third victim.
