Many questions have been raised as to why he has been returned to the national team. About to get up. He didn’t perform well in domestic cricket, he didn’t get any runs back in the national team either. In the first ODI on the ground of New Zealand, Soumya failed in both the roles of ball and bat!
However, in Nelson today, that Soumya has answered all the questions with the bat. Soumya played an extraordinary innings of 169 runs off 151 balls with 22 fours and 2 sixes. This is Soumya’s third ODI century since his century against Zimbabwe in October 2018.
In the innings that revolved around Soumya’s century, no one else in Bangladesh got a fifty. Mushfiqur made the second highest score of 45 runs. Bangladesh also could not cross 300. All out for 291 runs a ball earlier.
With a target of 292 runs, New Zealand has already gone into bat. At the time of writing their runs are 4 for no wickets in 2 overs.
