Bangladesh defeated Sri Lanka by two wickets – Nidahas Trophy, Colombo, 2018

Nidahas Trophy 2018 - bangladesh win 2
One of the most aggressive win by Bangladesh today against Sri Lanka which was enamored by Cobra dance is the most memorable fight in the Bangladesh cricketing history.

Amidst a lot of aggression from both the teams, Bangladesh was still able to contain the hostility and was able to torpedo the ball towards the boundary line lifting the chance to face the Ace Indians in the finals. Sri Lanka on the other hand has put up a tough fight towards the end however the end was not happy for them.

The entire world was watching the chaos which was created on the field due to some reason. There could be enough of speculations as to what could be the reason, may be sledging or bullying from the players on both sides, however it was fun to watch the absolute inexperienced teams unlike India and Australia to combat with each other.

Towards the end some sportsman spirit was shown by the Bangladeshi captain allowing his batsmen to face the final 2 deliveries and perhaps this decision of his is responsible for the win.

The rage was perhaps against the wrong umpiring declaring the ball as legitimate delivery although it was above the head of the batsman and was not declared as “no ball”. Since the scale of win was tipping frequently from one side to other and none of the teams sure as to who would earn a chance against the Indian giants has fueled the feud out of uncertainty and frustration.

But all in all it was good entertainment and both the teams were successful in holding the attention and making the fans stick to the TV screen till the end.

Congrats Bangladesh!
