Once again England’s batsmen and bowlers made their country proud. After losing three wickets within 35 runs England’s batting order was just going down. Eon Morgan and Ben Stokes showed their capability and stood like a wall in front of Aussie players. Australian bowlers were trying their best to get the much-needed victory but as like as before, again rain made them disappointed. Rain interrupted the match for several times and shifted the momentum to England cricket team.
It was not only the most important event for the Aussie team but also for the Bangladesh cricket team as well. 160 million of people were waiting eagerly to celebrate the victory of England cricket team.
All fans of Team Tigers were praying for England cricket team for their victory against Australia because that was the only way for Bangladesh to play in the semi-final. Bangladesh finally got the ticket of the semifinal of ICC Champions Trophy.
Without any doubt, it is the biggest ever achievement for Bangladesh cricket. For the first time, Bangladesh will be playing in any semi-final of ICC’s Tournament.
Cricket Fans of Bangladesh are wildly celebrating today in all over the world. When it was raining on 40.2 over, the on-field umpires stopped the match for a while. On that time England needed 58 runs from 38 balls. But just after that, it started cats and dogs, and the match referee took the decision to make England winner of the game by following the D/L method.
Yesterday New Zealand had to say goodbye to this tournament after losing the match against Bangladesh. New Zealand couldn’t win any game in this tournament.
This match was only Important for Australia and Bangladesh because both teams had a little distance on the point table. Bangladesh was staying on the top because of their two points which they got after defeating new Zealand so roughly yesterday. If Australia won the match, they would play in the semi-final instead of Bangladesh. It didn’t happen in the Edgbaston, Birmingham.
The Barmy Army are going to have this victory as a special one because today they were not supporting their team alone, with them millions of Team Tigers cricket fans were also supporting their team. It is for sure that all crazy Bangladeshi fans are enjoying more than England’s cricket fans because this is their first ever semi-final.
Every first success and achievement are very much special to everyone. On 15th June Bangladesh team will be playing against the champion team of group B.
The opponent team of Team Tigers can be South Africa or India. It is going to be more challenging for Bangladesh team for sure, but Team Tigers know very well how to play against the big team in the crucial situation.
After 11 years later Bangladesh cricket team is playing in ICC Champions Trophy, and until now Team Tigers showed their dominating and aggressive performance. So anything can happen in the semi-final. All cricket fans will have to wait until 15th June to watch another era of Bangladesh cricket. Mashrafi’s team is full of confident now to play the final of ICC Champions Trophy as well. If this rhythm continues then nothing is impossible for Team Tigers.
