1st Innings of Bangladesh

Kraigg Brathwaite, the skipper of West Indies, won the toss and decided to bowl first. So, Tamim Iqbal and Mahmudul Hasan Joy came off the pitch to start the batting innings for Bangladesh. Bangladesh played very carefully in the first ten overs.

But the visitors started losing wickets from the 13th over as Mahmudul Hasan Joy departed the pitch after scoring only 10 runs. Anderson Phillip took his wicket in the 13th over. After that, Tamim Iqbal was heading to get the half-century. Unfortunately, he missed it only for four runs as Alzarri Joseph picked up his wicket in the 23rd over.

The next two batters of Bangladesh contributed a little to the team. They couldn’t stay longer on the pitch due to the attacking bowling of the Caribbean bowlers. However, Liton Kumar Das tried to hold the team in the middle order. Before losing the wicket, Liton scored the highest 53 runs for Bangladesh. Moreover, Liton Kumar Das became the first batsman in 2022 to score 1000 runs. However, Bangladesh became all out in 234 runs as the remaining batters couldn’t stay long.
