Despite losing the series, Shakib's 4 wickets saved Bangladesh from a whitewash

After Bangladesh’s target of 246, everyone thought that Shakib-Tamim would be whitewashed by England. But because of Shakib Al Hasan’s bowling of 10 overs and taking 4 wickets, it became easy for the Tigers to win the match.

In the first ODI match, Team Tigers lost very close to England. If they could have scored 40-50 more runs, they could have won this match too. When England set a huge target of 326 runs to the Tigers in the 2nd match, Bangladesh lost the series almost without a fight.

But even in the 3rd match, after Bangladesh’s low-run Taggert, according to England, it was not easy to win the match with the big team. But because of the excellent bowling of the Tigers bowlers, they were saved from the embarrassment of a whitewash.

Especially as Shakib Al Hasan took three big wickets like Jason Roy, Philip Salt, and James Vince, England came under pressure. Shakib’s 4th wicket was of Rehan Ahmed.

But this all-rounder almost got the 5th wicket. Shakib misses this opportunity as Chris Woakes is not lbw in the last 9.5 balls. In this match, he became the owner of 300 wickets in ODI cricket. Only 14 people have 300 ODI wickets in the world and Shakib joins this list.

Then Tamim dropped the catch of Chris Woakes and Team Bangladesh was under some pressure. Bangladesh won the match by 50 runs as Mustafizur, who did not find a wicket, took the last wicket of Chris Woakes in his 6.1 overs.

From team Bangladesh, Shanto played big innings of 71 balls 53, Mushfiqur Rahim 93 balls 70 and Shakib 71 balls 75 runs.

Apart from Philip Salt, James Vince, and Chris Woakes from Team England, no other batsman could score more than 30 runs in the match.

Who is the first Bangladeshi to own 300 wickets in ODIs?

He is the world’s best all-rounder, the pride of Bangladesh, Shakib Al Hasan. On 6 March 2023, he became the owner of 300 wickets after taking 4 wickets against England at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram. Bangladesh won by 50 runs with a great performance in this match.
