Bangladesh sweep ODI series with four-wicket win over West Indies | Cricket News – Times of India

PROVIDENCE (Guyana): Taijul Islam made a triumphant return to one-day international cricket with his first five-wicket haul as Bangladesh completed another series sweep of the West Indies, winning the third and final fixture by four wickets at the Guyana National Stadium on Saturday. Playing his first ODI for more than two years, Taijul had a dream start with a wicket off his first delivery to set the stage for an outstanding effort. He finished with impressive figures of five for 28 as the home side were dismissed for 178 off 48.4 overs batting first. Bangladesh stumbled along the way in pursuit of the modest target with Gudakesh Motie claiming career-best figures of four for 23. However, the left-arm spinner could not prevent the tourists reaching the target with nine balls to spare. ...

West Indies win 3rd T20 and sweep series from Bangladesh

Captain Nicholas Pooran came down the pitch and smashed Bangladesh counterpart Mahmudullah over the fence to complete West Indies’ Twenty20 win and series sweep. Pooran’s career-best 74 not out off 39 balls finished off Bangladesh by five wickets with 10 balls remaining. West Indies scored 169-5 in reply to Bangladesh’s 163-5 in the third T20 to win the series 2-0. The first match in Dominica last weekend was washed out. Bangladesh chose to bat first, and a 20-run over plundered off Odean Smith by Liton Das and Afif Hossain gave the visitors a big boost. Their 57-run stand ended when Liton charged Hayden Walsh and edged to point. Liton made 49 off 41 balls. In the 19th over, Walsh trapped Mahmudullah on 22 and Afif was run out on 50 off 38 balls. He’d hit only two boundaries and two six...

3rd T20I: Pooran blasts West Indies to series win over Bangladesh | Cricket News – Times of India

PROVIDENCE (Guyana): Captain Nicholas Pooran was at his devastating best in blazing the West Indies to a comfortable five-wicket win over Bangladesh in the third and final T20 International at the Guyana National Stadium on Thursday. Pooran's unbeaten 74, and 55 from opening batsman Kyle Mayers anchored the home side's pursuit of the visitors' total of 163 for five. The hosts reached 169 for five with ten balls to spare to take the series 2-0 after the first fixture in Dominica last Saturday had ended in a rain-ruined no-result. Having come to the crease with the innings at 43 for three in the seventh over, Pooran asserted himself from the outset. With fellow left-hander Mayers following suit, the pair transformed a potentially tough challenge into a relaxed canter by the end in a rolli...

Bangladesh improve in 2nd Test but West Indies still classy

Bangladesh showed progress in making 234 against the West Indies after being forced to bat first in the second Test at Daren Sammy Stadium. Bangladesh opened with 103 in the first test in Antigua and lost last weekend with almost two days to spare. The West Indies’ class was still on show on Friday when it reached stumps at 67 without loss. Openers John Campbell and captain Kraigg Brathwaite were unruffled in making 32 and 30 respectively. But paceman Kemar Roach, who opened the bowling after taking seven wickets in the first Test, didn’t take a wicket on Friday in 15 overs of work. Anderson Phillip, given his Test debut after Gudakesh Motie was tried in Antigua, earned the first wicket with his second delivery when he bowled Mahmudul Hasan Joy for 10. Tamim Iqbal looked like he had hi...

Bangladesh name Shakib Test captain for third time | Cricket News – Times of India

DHAKA: Bangladesh appointed all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan as Test captain for a third time on Thursday after Mominul Haque quit following a poor run of form. Bangladesh Cricket Board also named batsman Liton Das the new vice-captain ahead of a two-Test series in the West Indies later this month. "They will be in the positions until a further decision is made," BCB president Nazmul Hassan told a press conference. Mominul stepped down as Test captain on Tuesday. The 30-year-old left-hander has scored 162 runs in six Test matches in 2022, averaging 16.20. In the recent series against Sri Lanka, which Bangladesh lost 1-0, he made 11 runs in three innings. This will be the 35-year-old Shakib's third term as Test captain. Appointed in 2009 he was dismissed from the post in 2011 after a series l...

2nd Test: Bangladesh top order stumbles after Mathews, Chandimal hit tons | Cricket News – Times of India

DHAKA: Sri Lankan seamers cut through the Bangladesh top order in the second innings after centuries from Angelo Mathews and Dinesh Chandimal gave the visitors a commanding lead in the second Test in Dhaka on Thursday. Bangladesh were a dangerous 34-4 at stumps on the fourth day and still need another 107 runs to ward off an innings defeat. The visitors were all out for 506 runs in the day's final session, with Shakib Al Hasan claiming his 19th Test five-for and pacer Ebadot Hossain finishing 4-148. The hosts fell into trouble in the sixth over as Asitha Fernando delivered opener Tamim Iqbal his second duck of the Test, returning after a catch in second slip from Kusal Mendis. Najmul Hossain (two), Mominul Haque (0) and Mahmudul Hasan (15) followed him in quick succession as Fernando an...

Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, R Ashwin maintain their top-10 positions in ICC Test rankings | Cricket News – Times of India

DUBAI: Bangladesh's Liton Das and Sri Lankan veteran Angelo Mathews have made valuable gains in the ICC Men's Test Rankings after fine performances in the drawn first match while there has been no movement in latest top-10 list issued by the world body. In the batter's list, Marnus Labuschagne maintained his pole position while India captain Rohit Sharma and his predecessor Virat Kohli remained static at eighth and 10th place respectively. Similarly in bowling, Pat Cummins (901 points) has a 51-point lead over his nearest rival Ravichandran Ashwin, who is followed by countryman Jasprit Bumrah. India's Ravindra Jadeja also remained on top of the all-rounders' table. With only Sri Lanka and Bangladesh engaged in a WTC series, it was inevitable that players from those two nations earned po...

Record 6th-wicket stand helps Bangladesh recover in 2nd test

Liton Das and Mushfiqur Rahim hit centuries Monday as Bangladesh recovered from a shaky 24-5 to end day one of the second test against Sri Lanka on 277-5. Liton was batting on 135 and Mushfiqur, who scored 105 in the first test, was on 115 after sharing a record 253 runs in an unbroken sixth-wicket stand. They made the highest partnership for the sixth wicket or lower after losing the first five wickets for 25 runs or less, breaking the record set by Pakistan duo Wallis Mathias and Shujauddin against West Indies in 1959. It was also Bangladesh’s highest sixth-wicket partnership, eclipsing the 191 by Mohammad Ashraful and Mushfiqur Rahim against Sri Lanka in 2007.

1st Test: Mushfiqur Rahim ton guides Bangladesh to lead over Sri Lanka | Cricket News – Times of India

CHITTAGONG (Bangladesh): Mushfiqur Rahim struck his eighth Test century and became the first Bangladeshi to pass 5,000 runs as the hosts took the upper hand in the first Test against Sri Lanka in Chittagong on Wednesday. Bangladesh were all out for 465 runs with a first-innings lead of 68 when the last man Shoriful Islam was unable to carry on his innings after a blow to the hand while batting. Sri Lanka then lost two wickets to reach 39-2 in 17.1 overs in their second innings before stumps were drawn on the fourth day, reducing their deficit to 29. Oshada Fernando was run out for 19 with a direct throw by Taijul Islam from midwicket. The left-arm spinner later bowled nightwatchman Lasith Embuldeniya for two and stumps were taken immediately after with Dimuth Karunaratne 18 not out at t...

Tamim ton puts Bangladesh in charge of 1st test on Day 3

Opener Tamim Iqbal’s first century against Sri Lanka put Bangladesh in charge of the first test after three days on Tuesday. Bangladesh was 318-3, only 79 runs behind Sri Lanka’s 397. Tamim made 133 off 217 balls before retiring due to muscle cramp during the tea interval. But Mushfiqur Rahim and Liton Das put on an unbroken 98-run stand to keep Bangladesh in command. Mushfiqur was 53 not out and 15 runs from becoming the first Bangladeshi to 5,000 test runs. Liton was 54 not out. “It is confidence, understanding what their game plan is. They executed it beautifully,” Bangladesh batting coach Jamie Siddons said.

CHITTAGONG (Bangladesh): Mushfiqur Rahim and Liton Das struck fifties after Tamim Iqbal made a hundred to put Bangladesh in pole position in the first Test against Sri Lanka in Chittagong on Tuesday. Liton hit 54 not out and Mushfiqur made 53 not out as the pair added 98 runs in an unbroken stand to guide Bangladesh to 318-3 at stumps on the third day, in reply to Sri Lanka's first innings 397.

1st Test, Day 1: Ton-up Angelo Mathews steers Sri Lanka to 258/4 against Bangladesh | Cricket News – Times of India

CHITTAGONG (Bangladesh): Former captain Angelo Mathews hit an unbeaten 114 to help Sri Lanka finish strongly on the opening day of the first Test against Bangladesh on Sunday. The tourists reached 258 for four at stumps after electing to bat first on what looked like a placid pitch in Chittagong at the start of the two-match series. Mathews put on a key third-wicket 92-run stand with Kusal Mendis, who made 54, to rebuild the Sri Lankan innings after off-spinner Nayeem Hasan removed the openers. He kept up the pressure on Bangladesh after Mendis' departure as he put up an unbeaten partnership of 75 for the fifth wicket with Dinesh Chandimal, who was batting on 34. Nayeem dismissed skipper Dimuth Karunaratne, for nine, and Oshada Fernando, for 36, in the opening session to give Bangladesh...

Nasum Ahmed, Liton Das help Bangladesh end T20I losing streak | Cricket News – Times of India

DHAKA: Left-arm spinner Nasum Ahmed and batsman Liton Das helped Bangladesh halt an eight-match losing streak in Twenty20 internationals with a resounding 61-run win over Afghanistan in Dhaka on Thursday. Nasum returned with career-best figures of 4 for 10 as Bangladesh bowled out Afghanistan for 94 runs in 17.4 overs after Liton's 60 off 44 balls guided the side to 155-8 at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium. The win ended Bangladesh's long streak of defeats in T20Is starting from the Twenty20 World Cup in Oman and the UAE last year and gave the side a 1-0 lead in a two-match series. Nasum picked up four wickets in his only spell, opening the bowling for Bangladesh to give the hosts a firm grip on the game as they reduced Afghanistan to 20 for 4 inside five overs.

1st Test: Mominul Haque, Liton Das build Bangladesh lead before Trent Boult fights back | Cricket News – Times of India

MOUNT MAUNGANUI: Mominul Haque and Liton Das led Bangladesh to a historic first innings lead over New Zealand in the first Test on Monday before both fell to Trent Boult in a dramatic final session at Mount Maunganui. At stumps on day three Bangladesh were 401 for six in reply to New Zealand's 328, a lead of 73 with four wickets in hand. They had reached 361 for four before Boult ended a 158-run stand with the wicket of Mominul for 88, followed 11 deliveries later by Das for 86. It is the first time Bangladesh have taken a first-innings lead batting second outside of Asia. They led New Zealand at Wellington four years ago when batting first, although a disastrous second innings saw them lose that Test by seven wickets. It has been an exceptional Test for Mominul, a part-time spinning op...
