Bangladesh Lost to Australia in The Fourth Match

The target is only 104 runs. It is difficult to think of fighting with this target in a T20 match. The Tiger bowlers did that hard work. They even created the possibility of winning a time. Although at last did not save the match. Chasing a target of 105, Australia finally got a breathtaking 3-wicket win with one over to spare. After this victory, the visiting team fell behind 3-1 in the five-match series.

Tiger bowlers have played with the mentality of not giving up from the beginning. In that attempt, Bangladesh got the wicket in the first over. Mahedi Hasan bowled Aussie captain Matthew Wade in a great delivery. But as soon as he came to the wicket, Dan Christian appeared in a horrible look. In the fourth over of the innings, the right-handed batsman drowned Shakib Al Hasan in shame. He hit 5 sixes in one over!

Christian hit three sixes off the first three balls of the over. The Aussie batsman missed the next ball to sweep the slog as hard as he hit a six. But he hit two sixes in the next two balls. In the next over, Nasum Ahmed lbw McDermott (5 off 12 balls). In his next over, Mostafizur Rahman returned the formidable Dan Christian (39 off 15 balls) with a catch by Shamim Patwari. Australia lost 3 wickets before 50 (49 runs).

The misfortune started when Moyes Hendrix was caught out in the eighth over. Mitchell Marsh played a straight shot to Shakib. At the end of the nonstrike, the stumps were broken by the bowler's hand. Hendricks (4) returned the unfortunate out. The Tigers quickly returned to the match after dismissing Alex Carry and Marsh. In the tenth over, Mostafiz made Carry (1) lbw. In the next over, Mahdi bowled Marsh (11) for a great delivery. The Tigers took 6 wickets for 65 runs.

After that Ashton Agar brought the team close to victory by playing an innings of 27 runs from 27 balls. Shariful Islam returned him in the 18th over. Shamim Patwari took a great catch. However, there was no run pressure on Australia. Despite losing 7 wickets for 99 runs, Australia needed only 6 runs from 15 balls. Even after bowling well, Bangladesh did not win.

Mostafiz bowled well in this match too. He took 2 wickets for 9 runs in 4 overs. Mahedi Hasan took 2 wickets for 17 runs in equal overs. Earlier, the Tiger batsmen could not take advantage of the Aussie bowlers. In the end, the hosts made 104 runs for 9 wickets in an innings of 23 runs with four sixes off 15 balls by Mehdi Hasan.

But on a slow pitch, you will find a collection of fighters again, it seemed at one time. During the tenth over, there were 48 runs for 1 wicket on the board. But in the next ten overs, Australia took control. Mahmudullah Riyad's team became 83 runs for 1 to 48 for 7 wickets. Bangladesh lost 6 wickets in 35 runs and the dream of making a fighting score came to an end.

Bangladesh's worries about the opening pair did not end in this match either. Despite winning the first three T20s, the Tigers did not get off to a good start in batting. The failure of the Soumya Sarkar, in particular, was obvious. Batting after winning the toss, Bangladesh scored 24 runs in the opening match but could not break the cycle of failure. Once again he was out after playing a bad shot. In the fourth over of the innings, Soumya was bowled by Jos Hazlewood to cross the ball. Alex Carre easily caught the catch. 8 off 10 balls with 1 six. In the previous three matches, 2, 0, and 2 came from the bat of this left-arm opener. In other words, he scored 12 runs in four innings.

Shakib Al Hasan looked shaky from the beginning. He could not do the timing properly with the bat and ball. There have been several catches. In the fifth over of the innings, Shakib survived a sure LBW appeal. The Australians appealed when the fifth ball of the over by Ashton Agar hit Shakib's leg. The umpire did not respond. Aussie captain Matthew Wade did not take the review. It can be seen in the replay, the ball used to hit the wicket, Shakib was out.

However, Shakib could not go far even after getting a life. The world's best all-rounder fell victim to Hazlewood in the tenth over after playing a slow inning of 15 runs in 1 boundary from 26 balls. When he went to play the cut, the ball hit his bat and went straight to the wicketkeeper.

Then Mitchell Swapson's whirlwind magic. Captain Mahmudullah Riyadh also became lbw at zero after Shakib was dismissed for five balls. Swapson took another wicket in the next ball. This time LBW Nurul Hasan Sohan (0) in Google. Bangladesh lost 4 wickets for 51 runs.

Naeem-Afif's bat was an indication of overcoming that push. But Naeem Sweepsen, who was playing a slow inning, went straight to play a slog sweep and lifted the ball straight up. Aussie wicketkeeper Wade took an easy catch. Afif Hossain Dhruv also took wickets in the next over after Naeem, who scored 28 off 36 balls with two boundaries, returned the wicket. Afif hit a big six off Ashton Agar in the first ball of the 18th over. But after two balls, the batsman was caught in the deep midwicket by Marquette, who hit a six-off 17 balls for 21 runs.

Shamim Patwari, who made his debut in Zimbabwe last month, is showing signs of failure against Australia. This time the left-arm batsman was caught in the midwicket for 3 runs after being confused by the slower Andrew Tie. He had scored 4 and 3 runs in the previous two matches against Australia. Among the Aussie bowlers, Andrew Tie and Mitchell Swapson took 3 wickets each. Josh Hazlewood took 2 wickets.
