Tigers take on Oman in 'do or die' game tomorrow

BSS, Dhaka
Tigers take on Oman in 'do or die' game tomorrow

Bangladesh are keen to hit back into winning way in a bid to keep their Super 12s hope alive as they face off co-hosts Oman in their second game of the Group B in the Twenty20 World Cup tomorrow at Al Amerat Cricket Ground in Muscat.

   The crucial game starts at 8 PM (Bangladesh Standard Time) and will be aired live on Gazi TV and T Sports.

   This second game was supposed to be Bangladesh's match to ensure their Super 12s berth with a match to spare but instead, they now face a battle of survival.

   The shocking six-run defeat to Scotland in the first match put them in such miserable situation and changed the whole equation. A defeat against Oman would almost shatter their dream to play the Super 12s.

   Ahead of the World Cup, Bangladesh though won the series against Australia and New Zealand back at home in a slow and low track, the cricket pundits around the world cautioned that playing in such wicket may backfire in World
Cup.

 Bangladesh team management argued that winning habit would keep them going but pundit's speculation was justified preciously.

   The Scotland should be no match for Bangladesh even though the Scottish side won the only match between the two teams in this format in 2012. But they were more energetic than Bangladesh in the game as they recovered from a tricky 53-6 to amass 140-9 and later restricted Bangladesh to 134-7.

   The surface was entirely good for batting but Bangladesh's habit of batting in slow track made them scratchy in this wicket. After the openers fell for cheaply, the experienced duo like Mushfiqur Rahim and Shakib Al Hasan were batting extremely slowly as if they were batting in slow pitch. After the dismissal of Shakib and Mushfiqur, Bangladesh still had the chance to close out the game as Mahmudullah Riyad was there in the crease but he also had already grown the habit of batting slowly.
