Mohammad Nabi made Tigers wrong in Asia Cup

Bangladesh’s Asia Cup mission did not start well. The ticket to the Super Four has become uncertain after a big loss of 7 wickets against Afghanistan. Meanwhile, Afghan captain Mohammad Nabir said that Tigers lost because of wrong decisions.

The fate of the match at Sharjah Cricket Stadium depends a lot on the toss. Statistics show that the team batting first on this pitch has a higher margin of victory. Out of 25 T20 matches before the Bangladesh-Afghanistan clash, the team batting first won 15 matches. The batting average of the team in the first innings is 150 on this ground.

After seeing such statistics, it is natural that the captain of the team winning the toss will decide to bat. So did Tiger skipper Shakib. But Mohammad Nabi, the captain of the winning team, thinks that Bangladesh’s decision to bat after winning the toss is wrong. He has also given an explanation as to why it is wrong.

After the match, Nabi told the media on Tuesday (August 30), “The pitch is new.” The soil here has been changed. No one has played on this pitch before. That’s why it was better to bowl first. This explains the condition of the pitch. That is why we were able to pick up quick wickets and put pressure on the opposition.

  • The two Afghan spinners Mujib ur Rahman and Rashi Khan created so much pressure from the start that Bangladesh lost the first four wickets to score just 28 runs. After that, the Tiger cricketers seemed to have forgotten the ideals of T20 cricket, keeping wickets and scoring runs. At the end of the allotted over, the Tigers lost 7 wickets and scored only 127 runs.
  • It was an easy target for Afghanistan to win. Especially in the previous match against Sri Lanka, Najibullah Jadran scored 106 runs in 10.1 overs in 20 overs, which was a boy’s game. But as Nabi’s 15 years of experience says, even chasing small targets on the Sharjah wicket is quite difficult. So they watch every step they take.

Nabi said, “We have been playing in Dubai, Sharjah and Abu Dhabi for 15 years. We are well aware of the condition. We never expected 200 runs in Sharjah. Sometimes it is difficult to chase even small goals here. Because of this, we did not want to lose wickets in the beginning. In the end, I targeted the bowlers and ended the match with a win.
