Afghanistan bowler created history
Did this special feat in the debut match itself
New Delhi. The only Test between Afghanistan and Bangladesh is being played at Sher-e-Bangla Stadium (Dhaka). Afghanistan won the toss and chose to bowl first and invited Bangladesh to bat. Bangladesh has scored 269 runs in 56.4 overs. In this match, while making his debut, the Afghan bowler made a special record on the very first ball.
Actually we are talking about Nizat Masood. Nizad Masood was included in Afghanistan’s Test team for the first time. He took the wicket on the very first ball while playing his first test. He got Bangladesh opener Zakir Hasan caught out by Officer Zazai. Zakir Hasan could score only 1 run in 2 balls and became the victim of Masood.
Nijat Masood has become the 22nd bowler to take a wicket on the first ball. This feat was done for the first time by Tom Horan of Australia. He had taken the first wicket in his Test career on the very first ball. Apart from this, in 2016 against England, Hardus Viljoen took a wicket on the very first ball in his debut. He took the wicket of great batsman Alastair Cook. Many other bowlers have done this before.
Najmul Hussain Santo scored a century
Bangladesh’s best batsman Najmul Hossain Saints is playing the best innings against Afghanistan. He has so far scored 145 runs in 172 balls in 56.3 overs. During this, a total of 23 fours and 2 sixes have come out of his bat. If the Afghanistan bowlers do not take Najmul’s wicket quickly, then this match can go out of their hands.
