Mahendra Singh Dhoni was a little bit angry today because of his fielding position. Most of the time he stands behind the wicket but today’s scenario was different. He was on the field but not behind the wicket. He dropped a catch in the short third-man area without trying to grab that. It was looking like Dhoni did that intentionally, but actual thing was the confusion Dhoni and Karthik. Dhoni was trying to grab some attention, and his body language made it clear. But his plan went in vain.
Kohli didn’t give him any chance to stand behind the wicket. Though it was a warm-up match, all Indian bowlers took it so seriously that they packed up Bangladeshi batsmen within a very low score.
Did Bangladeshi players were in a hurry? Maybe this question is on everyone’s mind. Otherwise why Bangladesh’s strong batting line up just packed up in 84 runs. There has no definition except this. It is true that Indian pace bowling attack was too much aggressive today and that’s why they could do this. But nobody even thought about it that a cricket playing country like Bangladesh could be packed up within a few overs and few moments after starting the match.
When Soumya Sarkar got out, just on that time, 11 runs were on the scoreboard and just after that Bangladesh lost two more valuable wickets of Sabbir Rahman and Imrul Kayes by sticking on the same score.
It was kind of freaky for Bangladeshi people. They didn’t see anything like this for a long time. Bangladesh lost another three wickets when the scoreboard was on 23 runs. There had a little bit confusion about Soumya Sarkar’s wickets. The ball touched on his bat or not it was making the people confused.
Sabbir Rahman’s wicket was awful to watch. Once again he failed to show his responsibility, and it creates a huge question to people’s mind that is he capable of playing in the one-down position because it is the most important position for all team. Many legendary players used to play in this place, and they showed their capability and responsibility as well.
Nowadays the number one all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan is also failing to show his ability. Many cricket experts from Bangladesh are suggesting selectors committee to find a better player instead of Shakib only because of his bad performance. Overall it was a very tough day for Bangladeshi players today just before the main tournament.
Hopefully, they will be learning from their mistakes this time. Otherwise, it will be a huge challenge for Bangladesh cricket team to stay in the tournament.
