Nasum lifts Tigers to maiden T20 win over Aussies Bangladesh beat Australia by 223 runs in the first T20 of the five-match series at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka on Tuesday.
This is the Tigers’ first T20I win against Australia. They have played four times against Australia and lost four times.
Nasum lifts Tigers to maiden T20 win over Aussies Bangladesh, who lost 7 wickets in 20 overs, were able to score 122 runs against the tour of Australia.
In reply, Australia lost all their wickets in 20 overs and could win by 10 runs.
Bangladeshi bowler Nasam Ahmed won four wickets and scored 19 runs. Mustafizur Rahman and Shariful Islam have two ticket gates in each bag
Bangladesh’s goal is to start with a five-match T20 series against Australia, which welcomes spectators in today’s opening match at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium.
The match will start at 7 pm Bangladesh time and will be telecast live on TSports, GazTV and digital platforms.
However, the series will not be broadcast in Australia after the Australian broadcaster expressed reluctance to broadcast the match.
The series has never been played in five T20 series in Bangladesh cricket and it will be the first time Australia have faced each other in a bilateral T20 series.
The Tigers have played four T20s against Australia before, all in the ICC World Twenty20, and have lost all of them.
In 2014-2014, Bangladesh played Australia only once in their domestic T20 and lost seven wickets in the game.
Bangladesh are confidently high after completing a series-winning hat-trick in Zimbabwe, giving them a chance to beat the ducks in the match against Australia.
The Tigers won the Test once before sweeping the three-match ODI series, and then won the three-match T20 series 2-1.
The Bangladesh series does not have star players like Tamim Iqbal, Musfiqalahim and Littandas, but the spectators do not have eight regular T20 stars like David Warner, Steve Smith and Aaron Finch.
Despite the fear of injury, Shakib Alhasan, who was embarrassed to complete 100 wickets with Bangladesh T20 cricket, served by a skilled all-rounder, an achievement achieved only by the great Lassis Maringa of Sri Lanka.
Meanwhile, Australia’s goal in coming to Bangladesh for the first time since 201 Australia was to look after the strength of the bench in the series before the ICC World Twenty20 series.
Before concluding the series, Australia laid down a number of conditions before the Bangladesh Cricket Commission, keeping in mind the current situation of Kovid-1.
The series finally gets the green light after meeting all the conditions of the BCB, although it had to cost much more than other home series hosted by the BCB before.
The spectators will be led by wicketkeeper-batsman Matthew Wade without a regular captain Finch, who suffered a knee injury in the West Indies final.
