Liton-Shakib gave wickets, Bangladesh under pressure in chase of runs

The target is not very big, just 114 runs. Bangladeshi batters don’t have to play on the market, they only have to play by sight. Shanto-Litton did that job fairly well on the power play.

Tanjid Hasan Tamim was caught by the wicketkeeper after playing a drive as Kagiso Rabada got out for 9 runs off the 2nd boundary. After that Nazmul Hossain Shanto and Liton Das spent watching the power play. Bangladesh scored 29 runs losing 1 wicket in 6 overs of power play.

But after the power play, the Tigers are under pressure after losing two wickets in two consecutive overs. Litton was dismissed in the seventh over after playing a bad shot. He took a catch at extra cover in Keshav Maharaj’s spin, making 9 off 13 balls.

In the next over, Shakib Al Hasan dropped a catch at midwicket while hooking Enrich Norkia. The world’s best all-rounder scored 3 runs off 4 balls.

As of writing this report, after 8 overs, Bangladesh’s collection is 40 runs for 3 wickets. Shanta 14 and Hridoy 3 runs unbeaten.

South Africa could score only 113 runs with the loss of 6 wickets due to Tanzim Hasan Shakib-Taskin Ahmed’s excellent bowling. Proteas would have been in a worse situation if Heinrich Klaasen’s 46 off 44 and David Miller’s 29 not off 38 balls.

These two pulled the team that lost 4 wickets for 23 runs. They resisted in the fifth wicket and added balls equal to 79.

Tanjim Shakib took 3 wickets for 18 runs in 4 overs. Taskin took 2 for 19 in the same over. Rishad Hossain took a wicket with 32 runs in 4 overs.
