Sports Desk: Tauhid Hridoy was waiting for a century in the debut match. He was 8 runs away from the century. That’s when the heart broke.
After Shakib, Hriday and both scored 90 runs but did not see a century. Several batsmen did not score a century even after crossing 90, this is the first time such an incident has happened in Bangladesh in one match. However, Bangladesh’s mountain of runs has been correct even though it was burned by two regrets. Tigers scored 338 runs after losing 8 wickets in the scheduled over.
Before this, Mushfiqur Rahim tapped his gloves with his heart, placed his hand on his head and wished him good luck. Mushfiqur’s partnership with Hriday was broken on 49 balls in his outing. On the previous ball, Graham had hit Hume for a superb four inside-out, this time he failed to get the timing right on the slow bouncer and caught him at fine leg.
But before this, Mushfiq played a stormy innings of 44 runs off 26 balls, with three fours and sixes. His partnership with Hriday made 80 runs from 49 balls… and Hriday was out too! The inside cross seam ball was a bit sloppy while playing on the leg side, missed the line and was bowled.
It should be remembered that Mahi is 9 months pregnant: Jaya Ahsan
Hriday stopped 8 runs away from the century on his debut as the first Bangladeshi, he is the second batsman to be cut in the shaky ninety today! Despite not getting a century, Hriday’s innings was excellent, hitting 2 sixes with 8 fours in an 85-ball innings.
