Bangladesh will lock horns with Zimbabwe in match number 28 on Sunday in the ICC T20 World Cup 2022. Zimbabwe have caused an upset in the last match by beating Pakistan. Bangladesh were thrashed in their previous encounter by South Africa. A win for Zimbabwe will keep their semi-final hopes alive.

The Asian side have looked dismal in the T20I format. Barring Litton Das, no batter has looked good facing the rising ball and extra pace. Shakib Al Hasan has not fired with the bat in hand and that has impacted the team in a big way. Shakib Al Hasan and Litton Das’s contribution will be key to Bangladesh posting a big total against Zimbabwe.
Bangladesh failed to build on their win over the Netherlands as they were dealt a battering by South Africa to the tune of 104 runs after being bowled out for just 101, chasing a whopping 206 to win. The Tigers had no option but to bat recklessly after conceding such a large score and assume they wind up bowling first again in this game, they will need a significantly improved display from their bowlers.
Rilee Rossouw struck the first century of this ICC T20 World Cup 2022 to give South Africa a dominating 104-run win against Bangladesh at the Sydney Cricket Ground. His big-hitting 109 helped his side to the ICC T20 World Cup 2022 edition’s highest total, with he and Quinton de Kock adding 163 for the second wicket, the second-highest partnership in the tournament’s history.
Bangladesh started the 206-run chase promisingly but after South Africa pacer Anrich Nortje’s three-wicket burst, the batters fell apart against the South African spinners. Anrich Nortje finished with his best T20I figures of 4-10, while Tabraiz Shamsi took three wickets. Getting bowled out for 101, it is now Bangladesh’s biggest defeat in this format.
South Africa 205 for 5 (Rossouw 109, de Kock 63, Shakib 2-33) beat Bangladesh 101 (Litton 34, Nortje 4-10, Shamsi 3-20) by 104 runs
Bangladesh scored 144/8 against the Netherlands who have lost all wickets for 135 runs. Bangladesh won by 9 runs against the spirited Netherlands. Netherlands’ Colin Ackermann waged a lone battle as he scored 62 off 48 balls before being a victim of Taskin Ahmed. Bangladesh’s Afif Hossain scored 38 while Najmul Hossain Shanto scored 25 and Mosaddek Hossain scored an unbeaten 20.
The in-form Dutch side bowled well for the majority of Bangladesh’s innings and some solid catching in the field meant the Asian side could only muster 144/8 from their 20 overs at Bellerive Oval. Seamers Paul van Meekeren (2/21) and Bas de Leede (2/19) picked up two wickets apiece. Taskin Ahmed has picked 4 scalps for 25 and Hasan Mahmud has claimed 2 scalps for 15.
After being 31/4 in the Powerplay one would say it was quite a close game. But apart from Colin Ackermann and a few lusty blows from Paul van Meekeren, there were hardly any contributions. Bangladesh just kept picking wickets throughout the innings as the Netherlands did in the first innings.
Bangladesh 144 for 8 (Afif 38, van Meekeren 2-21, de Leede 2-29) beat Netherlands 135 (Ackermann 62, Taskin 4-25, Mahmud 2-15) by 9 runs

Najmul Hossain Shanto
Najmul Hossain Shanto scored 25 against the Netherlands after opening the batting with Soumya Sarkar. The opener averages 18.55 after playing 12 T20Is. His highest is 40 against Pakistan in a 2021 bilateral series. He managed only 56 averaging 18.67 in the New Zealand Tri Series. He scored 9 off as many balls against South Africa.
Soumya Sarkar scored 14 off as many balls against the Netherlands. The 29-year-old had a poor 2021 T20 World Cup where he managed only 27 runs in 4 innings averaging 6.75. He averaged 13.5 in New Zealand tri-series playing 2 T20Is but is playing due to Tamim Iqbal and Mushfiqur Rahim’s retirement from T20Is. He scored 15 off 6 balls against Proteas.
Litton Das, the right-handed opening keeper hasn’t got a good average in T20Is but will play in the 2022 T20I World Cup in the absence of Mushfiqur Rahim and Tamim Iqbal. He had a poor 2021 T20I World Cup where he managed only 133 runs averaging 16.63 in 8 T20Is.
He didn’t play in the Asia Cup 2022. He was 5th highest run-getter in the New Zealand tri-series and Bangladesh’s 2nd with 142 runs in 4 T20Is averaging 35.5 at a strike rate of 142. He scored only 9 against the Netherlands but followed it up with 34 runs off 31 balls against South Africa to surprisingly emerge as Bangladesh’s highest scorer with only 43 runs.
Shakib Al Hasan
The veteran all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan is nearing the end of his illustrious career and would lead the team in the 2022 T20I World Cup. He played only 2 games in Asia Cup 2022 where he scored 35 runs. Bangladesh T20I captain returned to the playing eleven against New Zealand in the tri-series as he was given a rest in the first match against Pakistan.
The Bangladesh skipper, who missed the first game after arriving late in Christchurch, batted at the number seven position to score 16 off 16 balls. He followed it up with 70 against New Zealand and 68 against Pakistan to emerge as Bangladesh’s leading run-getter in the tri-series with 154 runs averaging 51.33 in 3 T20Is. He scored only 7 against the Netherlands but picked 1/32 in 4 overs. He scored only 1 against Proteas but picked 2/33 which went in vain.
Bangladesh batter Afif Hossain said that he likes to thrive under pressure. The left-hander earned the Player of the Match award in the first T20I between the Bangladesh Tigers and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) on September 25 at Dubai International Cricket Stadium.
Bangladesh beat the hosts by seven runs to take a 1-0 lead in the two-match series. Afif Hossain scored an unbeaten career-best 77 off 55 with seven fours and three sixes. Moreover, he was involved in an unbeaten 81-run partnership with stand-in skipper Nurul Hasan for the sixth wicket after Bangladesh was reduced to 77 for five in 11 overs.
Afif Hossain managed 64 runs in 4 T20Is averaging 16 in the recently concluded New Zealand tri-series. He top-scored with 38 off 27 balls against the Netherlands hitting 2 fours and as many sixes but managed only 1 off 5 balls against Proteas besides picking 1/11.
Mehidy Hasan Miraz
Mehidy Hasan Miraz didn’t play against the Netherlands but scored 11 against Proteas and conceded 32 runs in 3 wicketless overs. Mehidy Hasan Miraz is a right-handed batsman and right-arm off-break bowler from Bangladesh. He has scored 216 runs and taken 8 wickets in his 19 matches short T20I career so far. His best of 3/17 and 46 came against UAE.
Mosaddek Hossain played a key role with both bat and ball as Bangladesh beat the United Arab Emirates by 32 runs in Dubai to sweep the two-match T20I series. The batting form of Mosaddek Hossain was the only bright spot in the Asia Cup 2022 tournament and they will be hoping he can carry his form to Australia.
He scored 72 runs in 2 T20Is in Asia Cup 2022 including a 48* while he scored 27 and picked 2/8 in the 2nd T20I against UAE. He didn’t perform up to expectations in the New Zealand tri-series. He scored a quick cameo off an unbeaten 20 from 12 balls against the Netherlands but scored a 3-ball duck against Proteas. He has failed to pick a wicket in both games returning with 0/14 and 0/16.
Nurul Hasan led Bangladesh in Shakib Al Hasan’s absence in the two-match T20I series against the United Arab Emirates (UAE). As far as Nurul Hasan is concerned, he made a comeback after the injury that he sustained during the T20I series against Zimbabwe earlier this year.
After missing the Asia Cup 2022, he made the T20 World Cup 2022 squad. His career-best 42* came against Zimbabwe. He managed only 37 runs in the 4 T20Is in the New Zealand tri-series. He scored 13 off 18 against the Netherlands. He scored only 2 off 6 balls against Proteas.
Hasan Mahmud was the most economical Bangladesh bowler as he picked 2 scalps and conceded only 15 runs in 4 overs against the Netherlands. Against Proteas, he picked 1/36 in 4 overs. He has played only 8 T20Is where he had 10 scalps @ 22.5.
Taskin Ahmed made his international debut in the WT20 (2014 T20I World Cup) game against Australia in 2014. He picked 2 scalps in the New Zealand tri-series in 3 T20Is averaging 45.5.
He was the Man of the Match in Bangladesh’s first Super 12 T20 World Cup 2022 game against the Netherlands, picking 4/ 25. The 27-year-old pacer has expertise in 40+ T20Is. He picked 1/46 in 3 overs against Proteas.
Mustafizur Rahman can bowl with the seam up and occasionally hit speeds north of 140kph; sometimes he even swings the ball into the right-hander like other left-arm quicks. He is a left-handed batsman and left-arm medium fast bowler from Bangladesh. He has hunted 94 wickets in his 75 matches T20I career so far.
Mustafizur Rahman simply could not live up to his reputation, going wicketless and conceding 48 runs from his four overs, both in the Power play and death overs in the only game he played against Pakistan in the New Zealand tri-series 2022.
He was wicketless in the first game against the Netherlands, returning with figures of 0/20 in 4 overs. He failed to pick a wicket against Proteas too returning with figures of 0/25.
