Mustafizur helps Bangladesh avoid whitewash against USA

DHAKA, May 26, 2024 (BSS)-Pacer Mustafizur Rahman became the first

Bangladeshi bowler to claim six-wicket haul in a T20 International game as

his side avoided an ignominious whitewash, crushing USA by 10 wickets in the

third and final match at Prairie View Cricket Complex in Huston, Texas on


Bangladesh lost the first game by five wickets and conceded six-run defeat in

the second match.

Mustafizur paved the platform of a dominating victory with six wickets for

just 10 runs from four overs, which restricted the hosts USA to 104-9.

USA rested their four first choice players including the captain Monank


Bangladesh gunned down the total in just 11.4 overs, reaching 108 for no


Tanzid Hasan Tamim continued his rich vein of form, hammering an unbeaten 58

off 42, an innings laced with five fours and three sixes. Soumya Sarkar was

on 28 ball-43 after smashing four fours and two sixes.

But Mustafizur’s memorable bowling made Bangladesh toiling little for a

victory when they are on the brink of a shameful whitewash.

He ripped through USA batting line in an impeccable bowling, which gave

Bangladesh little target to chase.

But put into bat first, USA looked to be on course of another shocking

victory when Andries Gous put Bangladesh bowlers in sword.

Once Shakib Al Hasan broke through, dismissing Gous for 15 ball-27,

Mustafizur dismantled USA in an exceptional bowing effort.

He started with the wickets of Shayan Jahangir and then sliced the top order,

varying his pace brilliantly. He was ably supported by leg-spinner Rishad

Hossain who had figures of 4-1-7-1. Pacer Tanzim Hasan Sakib and Shakib Al

Hasan also took one wicket apiece.

Gous however was the top-scorer for USA eventually. Shayan Jahangir and Corey

Anderson made 18 runs each.
