IRE vs BAN: IPL-like adventure 7000 km away, no ball overturned, Bangladesh’s thrilling win


Bangladesh beat Ireland in 2nd ODI
No ball overturned in the last over

New Delhi. In IPL 2023, the match was played between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Rajasthan Royals on 7th May. In this match, due to a no ball, Hyderabad overturned the losing game and by taking advantage of the free hit, Abdul Samad won the match by hitting a six off the last ball. Some similar adventures were seen in Chelmsford, 7000 kilometers away from Jaipur, and Bangladesh won the match despite losing the match due to a no-ball.

Both the matches were high scoring. In IPL 2023, Hyderabad was given a target of 215 runs by Rajasthan Royals. Chasing this, Hyderabad needed 17 runs in 6 balls in the last over. 12 runs came in the first five balls. Now on the last ball, Hyderabad needed 5 runs to win. Sandeep Sharma had the ball in his hand and Abdul Samad was on strike. He bowled the ball and Samad hit an aerial shot towards the front and he was caught out. But, then the siren of no ball rang and Rajasthan’s happiness evaporated. Now 3 runs were needed to tie the match on free hit and 4 runs to win. Samad hit the last ball for a six and won the match for Hyderabad.

Something similar happened in the second ODI played between Bangladesh and Ireland at Chelmsford. Batting first, Ireland scored 319 runs for the loss of 6 wickets in 45 overs in a rain-interrupted match. Harry Tector hit 140 runs off 113 balls. Chasing the target, Bangladesh needed 5 runs in 6 balls in the last over. Mark Adair bowled this over. Mushfiqur Rahim was on strike. No run came on the first 2 balls. Adair’s third ball was a full toss, which was called a no ball by the umpire. A run came from the no-ball on this ball. After this, on the free hit, Rahim gave the victory to the team by hitting a four over the wicketkeeper’s head.
