Fazle’s unremarkable debut

When the expectation was high on him,  Fazle Rabbi just couldn’t make his debut memorable one. He was dismissed on 0 after playing four balls when he fended a lifter from Tendai Chatara to wicket-keeper Brendan Taylor. In doing so, he became the 13th Bangladeshi batsman to be dismissed on 0 on debut in ODI cricket. The last Bangladeshi batsman was Ziaur Rahman when he got a golden duck against Sri Lanka at Hambantota in 2013. The first Bangladeshi batsman to be out on 0 was Nurul Abedin Novel, the elder brother of current chief selector Minhajul Abedin Nannu in Bangladesh’s debut match against Pakistan in 1986. In that match three other batsmen—Gazi Ashraf Hossain Lipu, Jahangir Shah and Samiur Rahman also got out on 0. Overall Fazle became 209th batsman in the world to be out on 0 in ODI cricket. But he shouldn’t be disappointed if he looks at the list which also included highest run-getter in Test and ODI, Sachin Tendulkar. The modern great like Kane Williamson also started with duck.

Tigers’ 350th ODI and a statistical data

Since their first ODI on March 31, 1986, Bangladesh played their 350th matches when they took Zimbabwe in the first ODI of the three-match series. Zimbabwe was the opponent when Bangladesh played their 250th match. Bangladesh lost their first and 50th match against Pakistan before they made their 100 match memorable, beating India by 15 runs in 2004. They also tasted a victory again in their 150th match as they again beat India by five wickets in 2007 World Cup. Bangladesh made their 200th match memorable, beating West Indies by three wickets in 2009. But the winning streak in landmark matches was halted when Zimbabwe beat them in their 250th matches in 2011 before India outshined them by 109 runs to ruin their 300th ODI match in 2015 World Cup.

Drama chases Liton always!

Liton Das finally was out after scoring 4. He could have dismissed on 2, involving with some drama like the Asia Cup final. It appeared that his dismissal should be a talking point always. Third umpire took ages to give him out during the Asia Cup final when Mahendra Singh Dhoni was confirmed that he took off his bails before his feet touched the crease. During the first ODI against Zimbabwe, the third umpire also took an ages, but this time he got the verdict in favour of him. The soft signal was out when he pushed a Kyle Jarvis delivery uppishly towards short cover. It was close but Sikandar Raza seemed to have his fingers underneath the ball. They needed a conclusive evidence to rule this not out. But the third umpire thought the ball touched the grass there and Liton survived. But Alas he couldn’t count it.

Jarvis at service

The match is considered to be mismatch and Bangladesh’s final score 271 for eight indicated it is destined to be so. But at least in the midst of Bangladesh’s innings fast bowler Kyle Jarvis made many doubtful about the hosts’ chance in the match when he turned the things around by taking three wickets for two runs in just 14 deliveries, leaving Bangladesh 139 for six from 137 for three. Unless Kayes played the innings of his life and Saifuddin couldn’t come up as his support, the story could have been different. Jarvis however ended up with his career best four for 37.
