Rubel Hossain got a chance to be a part of Bangladesh team in New Zealand. He should say thanks to Mohammad Sahid because only for this guy he got an opportunity to stay with Bangladesh team in Australia. Mohammad Sahid got an injury during the BPL season 4 and that knocked him out from the Bangladesh squad for playing against New Zealand.That was a huge shock for Mohammad Shahid, but that made the day of Rubel Hossain.
Today Bangladesh lost their second warm-up match against Sydney Thunder, but team selectors of Bangladesh got something special to think now. Rubel Hossain got three wickets and bowled very well. It will make an extra pressure for selector panel of Bangladesh cricket board. They will have to announce the final squad for New Zealand series within a few days, and Rubel will stay on their mind for sure.
After winning the toss, Bangladesh skipper went to bat first to get some more time to bat because they were unable to get more time for batting in the previous match against Sydney Sixers. Though they won that game, they were not satisfied. In this match against Sydney Thunder, they played full twenty overs but couldn’t score more than 120 runs. All top order batsmen of the team failed to make the coach happy.
Sohan and Suvagata stayed on the crease for a long time to make a stable target fo the opponent. They did that also. Sohan played fantastic innings and played as he was being committed by the chief coach of Bangladesh cricket team. He played some amazing shots and blew the mind of spectators. He added 35 runs on the scoreboard. Suvagata scored 24 runs.
Bangladesh team were able to give a target of 121 runs to Sydney Thunder.From the beginning of the second innings, Sydney Thunder was dominating and scoring runs against Bangladeshi bowlers. Without Rubel Hossain, no one was able to make a competition. Sydney’s players beat Bangladeshi boys very professionally. 121 runs were chased very quickly by Sydney Thunder players.
They played only 18 overs. But both teams played full 20 overs. It is just a warm up match so if they play two overs more, it will not be a big deal. So they did it. Both teams will have to play tournaments ahead.
