England beat Bangladesh by 8 wickets in their second match of the ongoing T20 World Cup in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday. Jason Roy chased the target of 125 runs and scored the top score for England by 61 runs. Roy added 73 runs with David Malan (28 *) around the second wicket. Earlier while bowling first, England limited Bangladesh to a total of 124 with excellent bowling from Tymal Mills (3/27), Liam Livingstone (2/15) and Moeen Ali (2/18). Meanwhile, English leg spinner Adil Rashid put in a great performance in the field when he took an incredible catch shot to fire the versatile, versatile Bangladeshi star Shakib Al Hasan (4). Chris Woakes bowled a short ball, which Shakib tried to pull. The Bangladeshi versatile player got a top spot and the ball was wonderfully caught on a short fine leg by Adil Rashid, who made a brilliant effort.
The ICC shared a video of this catch on their Instagram handle where they captioned it: “Shakib is leaving now. Woakes gets the wicket while Adil Rashid takes a brilliant catch.”
Shakib’s wicket was the turning point of the match as Bangladesh subsequently collapsed a bat. Mushfiqur Rahim reached the top for Bangladesh with his 29-run beat.
With this victory, England continued their dominance in Group 1 by staying at the top of the points ladder with 4 points. The team led by Eoin Morgan will face arch-enemy Australia in their next match of the tournament on Saturday.
On the other hand, Bangladesh have lost both of their Super 12 matches and have three more outings left in their campaign and to qualify for the last four they will have to make the most of the remaining matches. The team led by Mahmudullah will take on the defending champions of the West Indies on Friday.
