Bangladesh gives a surprising gift to all cricket fans all over the world. In the final match between Australia and Bangladesh held in Sher-e-Bangla Stadium, Bangladesh won the match by 60 runs making history.
Bangladesh decided to open with Mahedi Hasan in place of regular opener Soumya Sarkar, and the move paid off. Along with Mohammad Naim, he ensured the hosts walloped 33 off the first three overs, all bowled by the spinners. Matthew Wade first went to Ashton Turner’s part-time off-spin, then to Ashton Agar and finally to Adam Zampa, before introducing pace in the fourth over through Nathan Ellis.
Australia has been skittled for their lowest ever Twenty20 total of 62 in a humiliating loss to Bangladesh in the final T20 of the tour.
Shakib Al Hasan took four wickets to seal the series 4-1 on Tuesday morning in a result that leaves Australia facing serious questions.
The latest capitulation comes after Australia had earlier been knocked over for scores of 108, 117, and 121 – four of the lowest 11 scores by Australia in T20 cricket when finishing all out or reaching a full 20 overs, according to Cricinfo.
