Bangladesh pulverise India

Hosts confirm semifinal berth in Emerging Asia Cup
Sports Reporter, Dhaka

Bangladesh pulverised India by six wickets in their Group-B second match to maintain winning streak in the ACC Emerging Teams Cup at BKSP-3 in Savar yesterday. The hosts thumped Hong Kong by nine wickets in their first match.

Bangladesh Emerging Team skipper Nazmul Hossain Shanto and Soumya Sarker, leading from the front, producing excellent batting display to reach the 247-run target in 42.1 overs that steered Bangladesh secure the semi-final berth with one match to spare in the tournament.

Opting to field, Hasan Mahmud delivered the first breakthrough removing Indian captain BR Sarath in third over of the match. While the visitors were looking for partnerships Soumya Sarker, Mahedi Hasan  and Sumon Khan picked up three wickets among them to reduce India 88-4. Losing top four after 21 over, Armaan Jaffer and Vinayak Gupta resurrected the innings with a much needed 125-run stand for the fifth wicket to take the score past the 200-run mark. From that stage India were eyeing to post a challenging score but it was Soumya Sarker again, broke the partnership claiming the wicket of Gupta. India lost last five wickets scoring just 33 runs to bowl out for 246 runs in 50 overs. Armaan Jaffer, who smoked a brilliant ton (105 off 98 balls), was the only standout performer for the visiting side.

Sumon khan bagged four wickets while Soumya and Tanvir Islam claimed two wickets each. In reply to the chase, India-returned Mohammad Naim got off to a fiery start with the bat scoring 14 runs in 9 balls, failed to continue onslaught on bowlers to fell cheaply in the second over. Since then Bangladesh never looked back in the chase after Skipper Nazmul Hossain and Soumya Sarker started to hammer the Indian bowlers all around the park to build a match-winning 144-run stand for the second wicket. Soumya departed after scoring 73 off 68 balls with 7 fours and 3 sixes to put Bangladesh on driving seat in the match after 23 overs. When Bangladesh were on course of victory requiring only 88 runs with 8 wickets in hand, Nazmul Hossain and Yasir Ali added 42-run for the third wicket. But it was unfortunate for the Bangladesh captain who couldn’t stay at the crease till the win and also missed to hit a ton before being dismissed at 94 off 88 deliveries.

Bangladesh to play last group match of the round-robin fixture against Nepal on November 18 at BKSP-4 Ground in Savar.
