PAK vs BAN – TRI SERIES T20 – Team Previews
Pakistan is coming for the Thursday game after facing a loss against New Zealand on Tuesday. It was a low-scoring game and their whole batting lineup completely failed in front of the New Zealand bowling attack. The team will be motivated to bounce back and gain some momentum before the ICC T20 World Cup.
Pakistan won the toss and chose to bat first but their decision turned out to be a massive failure. The opening partnership, Babar Azam and Mohammed Rizwan was of no use and lost their wicket at a very early stage. This is a major point of concern for the team management as both of their star batsmen have failed in the whole tournament. There is failure becomes a huge pressure on the middle-order batsmen and that in turn is a huge risk for the whole team.
Shaheen Afridi is still out of the ground and their bowling lineup is a little inexperienced for this kind of stage. The likes of Shahnawaz Dahani, Mohammad Wasim Jr., and Mohammad Nawaz were trampled on during the most recent game against New Zealand.
Bangladesh cricket is witnessing a major dip in its performance overall. The ongoing tri-series has turned out to be a major disappointment and it has shown them their weakness right before the ICC T20 World Cup. The Thursday game will be the last game for the team in the series and they would like to end it on a positive note.
Overall, the Bangladesh squad has completely lost their identity and there are now lost on the ground. Batsmen are unable to score and the bowlers are not able to pick wickets with time. Only one batter has scored a fifty in this series for them – captain Shakib Al Hasan’s 70 off 44 balls against New Zealand. Litton Das, Soumya Sarkar, and Mosaddek Hossain are three seasoned batters who have all fallen short.
There is no major impact from the Bangladeshi bowlers in the whole series. Except for Taskin Ahmed, no other bower has left an impression on the opposition and the team management.
