Bangladesh lost to neighbors India in their must-win game by a narrow margin of five runs through the Duckworth-Lewis method in the Super 12 match of the ICC T20 World Cup 2022 at the Adelaide Oval on Wednesday, November 2.

Bangladesh pacer Taskin Ahmed remains optimistic that a miracle in the final stages of the Super 12 can propel his team into an ICC T20 World Cup 2022 semifinal. The Bangla Tigers are in fourth place in Group 2 with four points, having won two of their four matches.

The Shakib Al Hasan-led team will take on Pakistan in their last group match at the Adelaide Oval on Sunday, November 6. They need to beat Pakistan by a big margin to improve their net run rate and hope that India or South Africa lose their last game.

Our Main Target Is To Win The Next Game – Taskin Ahmed

“If you look at this group, every match went down interestingly. Even now anything can happen. There can be miracles and it can happen (playing in the semis),” Taskin told reporters on Friday following their practice session at the Karen Rolton Oval in Adelaide on Friday.

“We will go with the same spirit in the last game and would like to win the game by playing good cricket. If we can win the game we can do the calculation later. But our main target is to win the next game.”

After Pakistan’s victory over South Africa, Bangladesh still has an outside chance of reaching the semifinals. India are currently leading Group 2 with six points after winning three out of four games and will play Zimbabwe in their final match.

South Africa are currently placed in second place in Group 2 with five points after winning two games and having one match washed out. The Proteas can qualify for the knockout stages if they beat the Netherlands in their final encounter at the Adelaide Oval on Sunday, November 6.
