Bangladesh suffer sensational collapse to be out for 143 in 4th T20


DHAKA, May 10, 2024 (BSS)—Bangladesh experienced a sensational batting collapse to be bowled out for 143 in 19.5 overs against Zimbabwe in the fourth T20 International game at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium today.

After its openers—Tanzid Hasan Tamim and Soumya Sarkar combined for a 101-run partnership, the collapse saw Bangladesh losing nine wickets for 42 runs.

Fast bowler Luke Jongwe was the wrecker-in-chief with 3-20 while Richard Nagarava and Brian Bennet grabbed two wickets apiece.

Put into bat first, Bangladesh looked to head toward a 200 plus total when Tanzid and Soumya, one of the three changes of the side for this game, tore apart Zimbabwe bowlers in brutal fashion.

Tanzid who hit his second fifty in the series made team-high 52 off 37 with seven fours and one six and Soumya, returned to the squad after recovering from an injury, hammered three fours and two sixes for his 34 ball-41.

Tanzid was the aggressor as he launched a spectacular attack right from the words go and raised his fifty for 34 balls when he drove Faraz Akram to cover-point for a single.

But his dismissal sparked the collapse as he skied a length delivery of Jongwe to the point region where Jonathon Campbell completed the catch, running back from extra cover.

Jongwe gave the side double delight in the same over, trapping Soumya Sarkar for leg-before.

Bangladesh’s batting then fell like a pack of cards and only Towhid Hridoy could manage to reach double digit figure.

Shakib Al Hasan who returned to T20 format after 10 months could make just 1  before offspinner Brian Bennet rattled his stump.

In the same over, Bennet bowled skipper Najmul Hossain Shanto (2) in same fashion to peg back Bangladesh innings. The hosts never could recover from the collapse and were bowled out below 150.
