Bangladesh have kept their World Cup hopes alive by delivering another impressing performance. In their 7th game of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 tournament, Bengali Tigers downed an inspired Afghanistan unit. Bangladesh batted first on a bit of tricky pitch to amass 262 runs which proved too much for Afghan side, thus registering a 62-run victory.
This means that to qualify for semi-finals, Bangladesh needs to win their last two games and hope to see the other equations going into their favor. Skipper Mashrafe Mortaza revealed that his team’s focus lies on the next two games which are scheduled to be played against top sides like India and Pakistan. The 35-year old vowed to give his best in the forthcoming matches as he expressed his wish to see his side making it to the final-four stage of the competition.
Reflecting on the business end of the mega-event, Mashrafe urged his team to be in the best shape to win the next two contests and give themselves a chance of semi-finals qualification. If Bangladesh pulls it out, then it would be a major achievement in their cricketing history.
