It is common for players of one country to clash and express anger on the cricket field with players of another team, but this has been seen very rarely among players of the same team. Something similar happened in the match played between Australia and Bangladesh in the T20 World Cup on Thursday, where Bangladesh fast bowler Taskin Ahmed was seen raging on fellow player Soumya Sarkar for dropping the catch. This incident happened in the third over of Australia’s innings, where Kangaroo captain Aaron Finch played an aerial shot against Taskin. Its video has also been shared by ICC on its Instagram.
There is also a reason for Taskin’s anger here that the government had come far ahead of the boundary at that time. At that time if he was close to the boundary line, he would have taken this catch comfortably. Later, Finch took tremendous advantage of leaving this catch and played a blistering innings of 40 runs in just 20 balls. Thanks to his innings, Australia achieved the target of 74 runs from Bangladesh in just 6.2 overs. Apart from Finch, Mitchell Marsh scored 16 runs in just 5 balls with the help of two fours and a six.
Bangladesh were reduced to just 73 runs by Adam Zampa’s ‘paws’
Bangladesh got off to a poor start against Australia in search of the first win in the Super 12 stage and the team lost the wickets of their top five batsmen for just 33 runs. The team could not recover from these setbacks till the end and was bundled out for 73 runs. For Australia, leg-spinner Adam Zampa took five wickets for 19 runs while bowling brilliantly. He was also adjudged the man of the match for this brilliant bowling. This is Australia’s biggest win in T20 International cricket in terms of remaining balls.
