2nd ODI: Bangladesh thrash West Indies by 9 wickets, clinch ODI series | Cricket News – Times of India

PROVIDENCE: Bangladesh's array of spin bowling talent again proved too much for the West Indies batting line-up to handle with the visitors completing a comprehensive series-clinching nine-wicket victory in the second One-Day International of a three-match series at the Guyana National Stadium on Wednesday. Beaten by six wickets in the first match at the same venue on Sunday, the home batsmen were even more inept in being dismissed for 108 off 35 overs. Having been swept 2-0 in both the preceding Test and T20 International series, the tourists extended the ODI dominance of their present foes in reaching the modest target with almost 30 overs to spare. It was their 10th consecutive ODI victory over the West Indies and also ensures they remain unbeaten in ODI series against the Caribbean ...

ICC ODI Rankings: Jasprit Bumrah back to No.1 in ICC ODI Player Rankings | Cricket News – Times of India

DUBAI: Fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah has regained the top spot in the ICC men's ODI Player Rankings after fashioning India's 10-wicket win over England with a career-best haul of six for 19 in the first game at The Oval. Bumrah had lost the top spot to New Zealand's Trent Boult in February 2020 after being No. 1 for most of the preceding two years. He has been at the top for a total of 730 days, more than any other Indian and the ninth-most in history. Bumrah, who has been No. 1 in T20Is in the past and is currently at a career-best third position in Tests, is only the second Indian fast bowler after Kapil Dev to be No. 1 in the ODI rankings. Maninder Singh, Anil Kumble and Ravindra Jadeja are the other India bowlers to have attained top ranking. Bumrah's new-ball partner Mohammad Shami to...

Bangladesh’s Tamim Iqbal fails to listen to his own advice to bat a “patient game”

At the end of the opening day, when Bangladesh were shot out for 234, the opener Tamim Iqbal had said that this “is not a wicket where you can do anything you want. You have to play a patient game.” Two days later, in Bangladesh’s second innings, Tamim slashed a wide delivery to be out caught behind the stumps. By the end of day 3, before rain curtailed play, Bangladesh were tottering at 132 for 6, still trailing West Indies by 42 runs. West Indies had won the first Test by 7 wickets in just over three days and Bangladesh now are sliding towards their sixth heavy defeat in the last seven Tests. It’s been a pattern in this series. Ahead of the game, Bangladesh’s captain Shakib Al Hasan too had challenged his team-mates to show more patience. “”If you look at the last three Tests, then yo...

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...

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.

1st Test: Sri Lanka’s Angelo Mathews sanguine after falling for 199 against Bangladesh | Cricket News – Times of India

CHITTAGONG (Bangladesh): Sri Lanka's Angelo Mathews said he accepted his fate after being cruelly dismissed one run short of a double century in the first Test against Bangladesh on Monday. His departure meant the visitors were bowled out for 397 runs after losing their last six wickets for just 78 runs on day two on a flat Chittagong wicket. At stumps the hosts were 76 without loss, with opener Tamim Iqbal on 35 and Mahmudul Hasan on 31, trailing by 321 when bad light stopped play with seven overs still to be bowled. "Obviously, it would have been nice to get that one run but you have to take what God gives you. I am thankful that I was able to play a good knock. Hopefully it will help us win the game," Mathews said. Off-spinner Nayeem Hasan broke Mathews's heart, forcing him to spoon ...

1st Test: Bangladesh firm in reply after Mathews falls for 199 | Cricket News – Times of India

CHITTAGONG (Bangladesh): Angelo Mathews missed out on his second double hundred by one run as Bangladesh bowled out Sri Lanka for 397 runs in the first Test in Chittagong on Monday. Bangladesh made a solid reply with the bat, reaching 76-0 at stumps on the second day, with opener Tamim Iqbal on 35 and Mahmudul Hasan on 31. The hosts were trailing Sri Lanka by 321 when bad light forced the stumps with seven overs still to be bowled on the day. Off-spinner Nayeem Hasan earlier broke Mathews's heart, forcing him to spoon a catch to Shakib Al Hasan at square leg on 199 as he made a desperate attempt to complete his double hundred with last man Vishwa Fernando at the other end.

Shakib Al Hasan, Tamim Iqbal return to Bangladesh squad for South Africa Tests | Cricket News – Times of India

DHAKA: All-rounder Shakib Al Hasan and opener Tamim Iqbal returned as Bangladesh named an 18-man squad on Thursday for their two-match Test series against South Africa in March-April. Shakib skipped Bangladesh's previous Test series against New Zealand and reportedly asked for leave to play in the Indian Premier League Twenty20 tournament. But he went unsold in the IPL auction, paving his return to the Test side. Opening batsman and one-day captain Tamim has also returned after missing the home series against Pakistan in November and the New Zealand tour in January due to injury. Mohammad Naim was axed from the Test squad after he failed to impress in New Zealand, where Bangladesh recorded their maiden win over the Kiwis in the country in the first Test at Mount Maunganui.

CHATTOGRAM (Bangladesh): Bangladesh captain Tamim Iqbal is not fazed by an Afghanistan spin attack he describes as the world's best going into their one-day international series starting on Wednesday. All three ODIs are in Chattogram on Wednesday, Friday, and Monday, followed by two Twenty20s next week in Mirpur. The Afghan spin attack features Rashid Khan, Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Mohammad Nabi, but Tamim said on Tuesday he likes Bangladesh's chances.

Bangladesh opener Tamim Iqbal extends T20I break | Cricket News – Times of India

DHAKA: Bangladesh opener Tamim Iqbal said Thursday he would prolong his break from Twenty20 internationals for at least another six months, adding to speculation over his future in the short format. Tamim is one of Bangladesh's greatest batting assets and has captained the one-day international side for the past two years. But he has not played a 20-over international since March 2020 and withdrew his name from last year's World Cup to give younger players an opportunity. Bangladesh failed to win at the tournament and also suffered a clean-sweep series loss against Pakistan at home in November. The team's top-order struggles have sparked calls for Tamim's return, but he made clear on Thursday that his priorities were elsewhere. "There were a few discussions over my T20 career in the las...
