England’s shot faltered again, aided by a dramatic slump Bangladesh Claim a 3-0 T20 series clean sweep after a 16-round victory at Dhaka.
david malan and Jos Buttler’s 95-square stand moved England After 13 extras in the pursuit of 159, it went up to 100 for one, but the pair were ejected from the game with back-to-back balls before the wheels fell off in this dead tire.
The Tourists lost five to 28 as their difficulty waned, even as Chris Woakes, who needed 27 in the final, hit the first two balls at four before dropping to 142 out of six.
England’s battered hits have been a constant feature of this series and will be the main talk again after Malan’s first three-shot in his international career, after Buttler failed to develop 53 of 47 guns and 40 of 31 guns. rejigged top order.
Buttler had previously won the draw for the first time in nine tries this year, but unchanged England, fraught with fundamental mistakes on the border, Rehan Ahmed and Rehan Ahmed and Ben Duckett Both are simple catches pouring from Jofra Archer.
Downed 51 by Duckett, Litton Das scored the highest with 73 balls out of 57, while Najmul Hossain scored 84 points with Shanto, contributing 47 of 36 deliveries in Bangladesh’s 158 in twos.
It proved to be a winning score, despite England’s sailors finishing a long winter strong on their last mission and allowing Bangladesh just 27 in the last five overs.
Litton settled down after bringing the first of the 10 fours from a hard edge, with Buttler returning to Adil Rashid in the third round after ineffective opening blasts from Sam Curran and Woakes.
The archer should have been in the forts column, but Ahmed didn’t cover his eyes when he landed under a skier for the ball to slide off his toes to save Rony Talukdar, who was on the road for 24 seconds after catching Rashid’s toe. -end and back to the bowler.
Najmul tried to instill some urgency by sweeping Moeen Ali with slow strides and then hammering fellow spinner Ahmed for sixs that went to 41 balls from either side of Litton. Litton suffered a delay soon after, as the attacking Duckett couldn’t hold on to the deep down, causing a mocking smile at Archer.
Litton soon had better luck with a lead over Buttler and centered one in the stands, but the opener’s luck ran out when he pulled a slower ball from Chris Jordan into Phil Salt.
England’s false pitches meant Archer’s numbers 4-0-33-0 were particularly unfortunate, but he did his part to chain Najmul and Shakib Al Hasan in death.
Yorkers from Jordan and Curran were also exceptionally effective, accepting only four singles in a perfect finale.
Continuing his opening partnership with Malan, who was given lbw after Taskin Ahmed tapped his toes, Salt was stunned for a golden duck. Malan reviewed hesitantly, and the pitch was overturned despite uncertainty as to whether a dunk had been detected after the ball had passed the club.
Bangladesh didn’t seem overly agitated, and Malan capitalized on his Bangladeshi debut, Tanvir Islam, with a six-man slog-sweep. Buttler timed Taskin and Shakib to the limit, and he and Malan tuned into a beat.
With Mustafizur Rahman finding it difficult to escape, Buttler and Malan sent Taşkın to a foursome and saved the rope with a straight hit to England captain Mehidy Hasan Miraz.
Malan had 43 handballs, but both hitters perished in successive deliveries.
Malan took a pull from Mustafizur towards Litton before Buttler lost his wrinkle after Mehidy’s direct hit and found the only log he needed to aim for, even though he was off balance on the spot.
It was the turning point in the competition.
While Moeen and Duckett initially restored some order with a few borders, they were both sacked in the same Flood. Duckett lost his stump as Moeen took refuge deep in the middle castle, while Taskin went full and straight.
Woakes sent Hassan Mahmud in back-to-back fours at the start of the 20th round to leave England needing 19 of the four balls, but Bangladesh quickly recovered their composure to help their side cross the line.
