From the debuts of Mustafizur Rahman and Shakib Al Hasan to the outfoxing of Shardul Thakur on the seventh ball, you’re sure to find something interesting to read.
Bangladesh beat India by 1 wicket in the first ODI
Despite a disastrous batting performance, Bangladesh beat India by one wicket in the first ODI to take a lead in the three-match series. India’s innings collapsed to 186 runs in 41 overs. Bangladesh’s bowlers kept India at bay until the last over, allowing Mehidy Hassan Miraz to take the side home with four overs to spare.
After losing the toss, Bangladesh opted to bowl first. But their early breakthrough was short-lived. Najmul Hossain Shanto was sent back by Deepak Chahar in the very first delivery. The ball bounced more than usual and hit stumps. The umpire didn’t seem to be too interested in the situation.
After the first powerplay, Bangladesh had reached 14 runs in just 36 balls. Bangladesh’s second over saw a maiden from Mustafizur Rahman. He hit a four and a six. Mehidy Hassan Miraz took advantage of the opportunity and produced a blistering 39-ball 38-run cameo. He then finished the chase with a punch through cover. Mehidy finished on 38 not out and took the side home with four overs to spare.
Bangladesh’s lead in the three-match series is now nine runs. They have won their last six ODIs against India. However, the teams meet in the final match on Saturday in Chattogram. Having lost their last two ODI series to Zimbabwe and New Zealand, India now need to win the second match to have a chance to avoid a series defeat.
Mehidy Hasan came off the bench and made a huge contribution to Bangladesh’s victory. He made a cameo with the bat and played unorthodox cricket. He also bowled a direct hit and finished with seven runs. He was well supported by Mustafizur Rahman, who finished with 10 runs and 10*.
Bangladesh will miss their regular pace attack, which will be led by Ebadot Hossain. They are also missing Taskin Ahmed. However, they have enough firepower to surprise India.
Mehidy Hasan and Mustafizur Rahman had a dazzling last-wicket stand. They scored 51 runs for the last wicket. The duo forged the second 50-plus run stand in the tenth wicket for Bangladesh.
Bangladesh’s batting was the biggest reason for the defeat
Despite their efforts, Team India lost the opening ODI against Bangladesh on Sunday, falling one wicket short of a win in a rain-affected clash in Adelaide. The team was unable to build a good enough score, while their batting was the biggest reason for the loss.
The team was in dire straits after losing four wickets in the space of nine deliveries. The batting order collapsed, and India lost their way. The fielding also suffered, but the only silver lining was the impressive performance of KL Rahul, who scored the only impressive innings of the game, a maiden fifty.
The bowlers did a good job, but their fielding was far from good. The bowlers were caught too early and sometimes the batsmen missed the ball altogether. The bowlers also conceded a number of wide balls. In the end, Bangladesh got a comfortable target of 187, thanks to the performance of Liton Das and Shakib Al Hasan.
The Indian bowlers also bowled a good game, but their batting and fielding were too poor to give the team a chance to win. The team was unable to score runs against the powerful Bangladesh attack, and India looked in trouble early. They were bowled out for 186 runs in just 41.2 overs.
In the field, Taskin Ahmed made a brilliant diving catch in the 14th over to dismiss the dangerous Kusal Mendis. This was the first of two superb catches by Ahmed in the match. The other came in the fifth over, when he managed to hold his nerve and fend off the sharp short-pitched ball of Mohammed Shami.
The most impressive innings for India came from KL Rahul, who scored the first fifty of the game. The Indian wicketkeeper hit a maiden fifty, but it was not enough to help the team win the match. It also didn’t make much of a difference when he was not able to catch the high-ball from Mehandi Hasan Miraj.
The Indian spinners were also unable to pick up the wickets they needed in the last over. Then, Mehidy Hasan Miraj came to the rescue. He hit a splendid 38 to help the team over the line.
Shakib Al Hasan’s outfoxing of Shardul Thakur on 7 to have him stumped
ICC suspended Bangladeshi bowler Shakib Al Hasan for two years. The suspension will prevent him from bowling for Bangladesh in the upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League. And it will keep him out of the World T20 next year in Australia.
The first ODI in Birmingham saw India win by nine wickets. Kamran Ghulam made 72 runs from 196 balls while Ashfaq Ahmed contributed 45 runs. During the match, India were unable to make much of a dent in the lower order. But they did make a strong start, batting well on the first day.
The third umpire also spotted a number of replays. He also saw the shortest boundary of the match. This was the slot outside off. It’s a tricky shot to hit.
The third umpire also ruled out a soft signal. That is a good thing, but not the only good thing.
In addition, he also saw the ball from a different angle. He had the ball fall over the fence, so he had to take a look at whether the right foot had touched the cushion. He did, and it looked like it.
It’s a good sign for the team. They’ve been able to maintain their pressure during the death overs. But now it’s Karthik who is the focus of the game.
The Gujarat lad’s tendency to play too many uppercuts needs to be addressed. And he needs to be given more opportunities in England and Australia.
It’s also a good sign for the India team. They were able to get a win over Hong Kong. It was the first bilateral ODI series win for India. They beat Bangladesh in the ICC Champions Trophy in England last year. They will take on the hosts in two Tests and three T20 Internationals. They’ve also dealt with a late change of personnel. They’ll be able to get little time off between the matches.
There are three more T20 Internationals to come before India travel to Dubai and Abu Dhabi for the Tests. The series is now tied at 2-2.
Mustafizur Rahman’s debut
During his debut against India in Dhaka, Mustafizur Rahman carved through the Indian batting line-up with a host of variations. He snared 5 wickets for 50 runs in 9.2 overs. He was also awarded the Man of the Match award.
Mustafizur Rahman, the son of an avid cricket fan, began practicing cricket 40 kilometers from his home town in Khulna, Bangladesh. He then attended a fast bowling camp in Dhaka. He also played tennis ball cricket before his cricket career began. His father and brother Mokhlesur Rahman played a key role in bringing him into the cricketing world.
Mustafizur Rahman started his cricketing career in the age group tournaments in Khulna and Satkhira. He eventually made his way into the first-class cricket ranks and played for Khulna Division and Abahani Limited. He was then selected for Bangladesh’s Under-19 team for the 2014 Cricket World Cup in UAE. He was subsequently inducted into the Bangladesh Cricket Board’s Fast Bowling Foundation.
After a successful first-class season in 2014-15, Mustafizur Rahman was drafted into the Rajshahi Kings team for the upcoming Bangladesh Premier League. He then went on to play in the IPL. He made his IPL debut for Sunrisers Hyderabad in 2017. He was also bought by Mumbai Indians in 2018.
He made his ODI and Test debut against South Africa in Chittagong, and his wickets in the Test series were his first international wickets. He picked up five wickets in the Test series and was also named Man of the Match. He was also included in Bangladesh’s ODI XI for the first time. He then took 9 wickets in three matches against New Zealand. He also featured in Bangladesh’s successful tour of Sri Lanka in 2017. He played a key role in the Bangladesh’s 79-run victory in Dhaka. He was then named in Bangladesh’s squad for the 2022 Cricket World Cup.
Mustafizur Rahman became the first player to receive the Man of the Match award in both ODI and Test debuts. He was also named in the ICC’s ODI XI for 2015. He was also named the Emerging Player of the Tournament.
Bangladesh’s economy is predominantly agrarian
Agricultural sector plays important role in the economy of Bangladesh. It contributes to food security and provides livelihood for the people. It is one of the largest employers in Bangladesh. However, the agricultural sector faces challenges to increase productivity. It is also a major contributor to the country’s GDP.
The main crops of Bangladesh are rice, jute, and other oilseeds. Other major agricultural products include wheat, pulses, and sweet potatoes. These are exported primarily to the United States, Canada, and Europe.
The agricultural sector accounts for 13.1% of Bangladesh’s GDP. It employs nearly half of the labour force. It provides raw materials for other industries. It is also a major contributor to export earnings. However, the contribution of agriculture sector is decreasing over time. Inefficient infrastructure limits the farmers’ ability to commercialize their production. Natural disasters can also affect the agriculture sector.
Agriculture plays a vital role in reducing poverty. The agricultural sector is the largest employer in Bangladesh. It employs about 48 percent of the labour force. The agriculture sector needs to increase productivity through mechanization and irrigation expansions. However, it is facing challenges to increase productivity due to high government expenditures. It must also increase food security.
The rural nonfarm sector has also been affected by rapid industrialization. However, the nonfarm sector has displayed a sectoral distribution of jobs similar to that of the farm sector. The overall shift in the sector is away from casual wage employment and towards salaried wage employment.
The rural nonfarm sector has become more heterogeneous over the years. Mixed households have a higher percentage of female workers than pure farm households. However, their asset endowments are inferior to that of pure nonfarm households.
