Bangladesh Players Emulate Shahid Afridi

Bangladesh players emulated the one and only Shahid Afridi in a world cup when they needed only two runs to win on three balls. That match was the most watched by the cricket supporters since India never let them win it. All the players tried to become hero by playing match winning shot like Shahid Afridi. Shahid Afridi had hit two huge sixes off the bowling of Indian spinner when Pakistan needed seven or eight runs in the over.

Performance of Bangladesh players has been pretty alright in the match against India but they lost the winning streak when they gave up easy wicket in the last three balls. Shahid Afridi had won a match against India by hitting two huge sixes off the bowling of the spinner. The spinner had all the luck in the previous over when he bowled to the other batsmen.

Shahid Afridi liked spin bowling since it really enticed him to go for the big hits as he has been doing throughout his career. He never wanted to score by scoring singles and doubles. He had once said in the interview that his favorite shot was anywhere over the boundary. Perhaps that was the innings that had really shattered the thinking of Bangladeshi batsmen when they went for the big hits.

Bangladesh players and the team management did not have any coordination between them as they lost two quick wickets against Indian in the last over while needing only two runs to win the world cup match. The last ball was to be balled by the fast bowler of Indian who has emerged as very good talented bowler as stated by one of their batsmen.

Bangladesh players never thought for a moment that their one bad shot could cost them the big loss of the world cup history. They kept on making mistakes by going for the big hits in the last over like Shahid Afridi but could not get succeeded. Everyone got out cheaply and on the final delivery of the match against India, they needed one run to score the equal runs to the Indians but the batsman again played like Shahid Afridi and lost the match.
