Furthermore, Dawid Malan smashed 114 from 145 balls and hit eight fours and four sixes. Additionally, he brought all his previous experience playing in Bangladesh to this game.
For Bangladesh, Taijul Islam and Mehidy Hasan Miraz got three and two wickets respectively but it wasn’t enough for the hosts.
On the other hand, Najmul Hossain Shanto smashed his maiden fifty in ODIs but failed to get support from other batters.
Experienced bowler, Mustafizur Rahman had an average outing as he didn’t get any wickets and gave away 42 runs.
Therefore, tomorrow’s game is a very important one for the hosts as it will ensure that they have a fighting chance in the series.
