That is that from this match. Bangladesh once again have dominated the home team and are looking too strong for them. The second T20I is on Friday, 23rd July 2021 at 12.30 pm local (10.30 am GMT). Do join us in advance for the build-up. Until then, it's goodbye and cheers!
Mahmudullah, the winning captain of Bangladesh, (on his promotion in the batting order) says that the situation was such that they needed 8-run-an-over and he wanted to show some intent. Credits the openers for a superb start and praises the bowlers for coming back strongly. Adds that if you look at the stats, the chasing team has won the last 7-8 games here and also the wicket was looking good for batting. Adds that they have a good batting depth, so chasing is always a good idea. Hopes that they will come with the same intent in the next game.
Soumya Sarkar is chosen for the Man of the Match award for his all-round show.
Sikandar Raza, the captain of Zimbabwe, says that they were looking at 170-plus but they fell short but feels that they have plenty to gain from this match. Adds that the lower order and the middle-lower order didn't fire and not to bat the last over was criminal. Tells that if they avoid the mistakes done in this match, they will be good to go in the next match. Opines that they have to stick to their bowling plans a bit longer and not panic. Hopes they will be a lot calmer in the next game, especially at the death. Wants to stick to his plans and attack the batsmen with the new ball.
Presentation time...
Zimbabwe have themselves to blame for this loss. They started brightly with the bat and were going great guns with Regis Chakabva leading the charge. At the halfway mark, the hosts were 91/2 and were looking set to reach a total close to 200. However, things changed drastically after that. The Bangla Tigers roared back into the match and started to pick wickets at regular intervals. All of a sudden, Zimbabwe lost the plot and their innings nosedived. In the last 10 overs, they managed only 61 runs and ended up losing all the 8 remaining wickets. A big collapse and as a result, Bangladesh didn't have a big target to chase.
A commanding win for Bangladesh and they take an early lead in the series once again. In pursuit of 153, the Bangla openers smashed a century stand and put the chase to bed very early. The pair of Sarkar and Naim started cautiously in the first three overs but then opened their arms. They played plenty of delightful shots on their way to a match-winning partnership. Zimbabwe's bowling was flat, to say the least as they struggled for breakthroughs. They did show some intensity in the field towards the end but the match had already slipped away from them by then.
