Yesterday Zimbabwe played extremely well. Their tremendous performance and extraordinary team effort helped Team Zimbabwe to win the match. No one believed that Zimbabwe could do that, but all players played their best to win the match without any struggle. Sri Lanka gave a huge target of 317 to Zimbabwe.
Before that match, any team never won the match after chasing more than 300 runs. Now Bangladesh and Zimbabwe are staying in the same line! It might be the little bit weird to hear, but it’s true. As like as Zimbabwe, Bangladesh also won only three times after chasing more than 300 runs in their ODI history.
Until now Bangladesh got the target of more than 300 runs for 38 times, but the winning ratio is below average. Team Tigers won only three times.
In 2009, for the first time, Bangladesh chased more than 300 runs successfully, and that match was against Zimbabwe in Bulawayo cricket stadium. Zimbabwe played very well in that game. Their legendary player Charles Coventry scored 194 runs in that match. That innings helped Zimbabwe to score 312 runs. At that time it was a huge total for Team Bangladesh.
Before Team Tigers never won any match that by chasing more than 300 runs. It was an enormous pressure, but Tamim Iqbal’s innings was the main turning point for Bangladesh. Tamim scored 153 runs, and Bangladesh won that match.
In the World Cup 2015, Bangladesh also won a match after chasing more than 300 runs, that time opponent team was Scotland. Once again Tamim Iqbal became the main hero to get the victory. His incredible 95 runs relieved pressure for middle order batsmen. Shakib, Mahmudullah, and Mushfiq’s half-century helped Team Tigers to win the match.
In 2013, another victory came to Team Tigers. New Zealand came to play ODI series in Bangladesh. On that last match of the series in Fatullah Bangladesh won the match after chasing 307 runs. Opener Samsur Rahman scored 96 runs and helped to get a tremendous victory.
In ODI cricket 391 runs were the biggest target ever for Team Tigers, but they became unsuccessful to chase that enormous total. On that particular match In Nottingham, Bangladesh played against England in 2005.
