Rishad gave a different taste of fascination on the opposite side of regret

Bangladesh brought back memories of Eden Gardens today by batting in the third T20I against Sri Lanka in Sylhet. Mashrafe-Tamim-Sakibra scored only 70 runs against New Zealand in Super-10 of 2016 T20 World Cup. This is the team’s lowest score in T20I. Today, Nazmul Hasan Shantara put this record in jeopardy.

Batting first in the series deciding match, the Lankans set a target of 175 runs. In response, Bangladesh lost 6 wickets for only 32 runs in batting. After that, none of those who will bat are tested batsmen. After losing 6 wickets in 49 balls of the innings, how long will Bangladesh remain on the wicket, this calculation is going on. It is also calculated, Sylhet will beat Eden’s shameful record!

But Rishad Hossain did not let Sylhet sit on the record of shame. The one who was taken into the team because he would confuse the opponent with leg spin to collect wickets, today’s match he has become a complete batsman, the best batsman of the team! He played a brave innings of 53 runs from 30 balls standing in the rubble. The fear of a record of shame flew away and Bangladesh stopped at around one and a half hundred runs. Lose only 28 runs!

Standing on the green wicket of Sylhet today Rishad was hitting each six with the force of his wrist, then a little confusion came to mind, did the top-middle order batsmen bat on this wicket today? Or they were allowed to play on a different wicket!

Rishad got a chance to bat in only 3 innings after playing 8 matches in international T20 today. He averaged just 18 runs in three matches. That too at only 81 strikerate. Is that Rishad who played 176 strikes today! Rishad did not hit a single four in the innings of 53 runs. The boundaries that have been hit, all blown away. 21-year-old youth crossed the border by flying 7 times. At the same time, he dismissed the fear of a shameful record.

Coming to the wicket after losing 6 wickets for 32 runs, Rishad scored 44 runs off just 31 balls in the seventh wicket partnership with Sheikh Mehdi. Then he scored another 41 runs (21 balls) in a partnership with Taskin. Even in the face of disaster, Rishad’s explosive batting made the team score a hundred runs, at one time it also seemed that Bangladesh would have won the match if the top order-middle order scored a few more runs!

Along with admiration, Rishad’s innings also spread regret.
