South Africa suffered an unbelievable defeat at the hands of Bangladesh yesterday and the Bengal Tigers were at their best in every department of the game.
Bangladesh scored 330 batting first and it was always going to be difficult for South Africa to chase it down in a World Cup match.
All senior batters of Bangladesh including Shakib Al Hasan & Mushfiqur Rahim scored the fifties for their team but Bangladesh’s main finisher, Mahmudullah Riyad scored a magnificent 46* to take his team to a mammoth total of 330.
Mahmudullah took over when the settled batsmen were back to the pavilion and he launched an onslaught with young Mosaddek Hossain to completely disturb and bowling plans of South Africa.
If Bangladesh wants to go deep in this tournament, then the role of Mahmudullah Riyad is going to be very crucial for them.
