Mahmudullah usually bats at crucial positions in the Tigers’ batting line-up as he often he has to do the job of finishing the match or scoring quick runs in the death overs.
After a good start at the top and solid batting in the middle overs, the stage was set for Mahmudullah to fulfill his role and the right-handed batsman did it quite brilliantly.
Bangladesh scored just 27 runs in between overs 41-45 and seemed to slow down a little bit at that point.
One of the biggest positive signs for the @BCBtigers team in recent times has been their opening batsman Soumya Sarkar’s impressive form.https://t.co/g8hlZFJ5WG#BCBTIGERS #BCB #TIGERS #BANGLADESHCRICKET #BANGLADESH #CRICKET #SOUMYASARKAR #SOUMYA #SARKAR #BANGLADESHCRICKETTEAM— Dhaka Tribune Sports (@Sport_DT) June 2, 2019
But in the last five overs, they scored 59 runs thanks to Mammudullah’s unbeaten 46 off 33 deliveries with three boundaries and a six in the last over against Kagiso Rabada.
And in the end, Bangladesh scored a challenging 330 for the loss of six wickets.
A timely innings from Mahmudullah, and job well done.
