Moments of The Day: Shakib Show All Over Again
- Although Liton Das & Shakib Al Hasan gave Bangladesh a decent start, it was Mahmudullah’s impetus that led Bangladesh to a competitive total. From 72 in 10.2 overs to 181 in 20 overs.
- This is Shakib’s 2nd player of the match in a row. Shakib is a World Cup man. First the 2019 World Cup and now the 2021 T20 World Cup. In these conditions, Shakib’s angle and spin, along with Mahedi Hasan’s accuracy, can choke the opposition.
- Kiplin Doriga played another finishing knock to get PNG to a decent total. Without Doriga, they might have collapsed below 50.
Broken Cricket Dream of the Day: Batting Failures Underlines PNG’s Campaign
- 97/10 is actually looks better than it actually was. Papua New Guinea were struggling for 29/7 at one stage. With that sort of a performance, victory at an international stage will be far away. In any case, it was a joy to have PNG at a World Cup. Great people, wonderful catching, and a beautiful story.
