Shanto’s first fifty in ODI career

Kriralok Desk: Nazmul Hossain Shanto had the best time of his career in the recently concluded BPL. The left-handed batsman also won the tournament best award along with the highest run scorer in the tournament. But he could not match himself in international cricket. As a result, supporters criticized him.

But that calm saw him score his first career fifty in the first ODI of the series against England. On this day, the left-handed batsman brought up Abhishek’s half-century in the 16th match of his career in the Bangladesh jersey. Left-handed batsman Shanto got out after scoring his first career half-century in Bangladesh jersey.

His innings of 58 off 82 balls included six boundaries. Bangladesh collected 209 runs in his batting fifty. The hosts were narrowly bowled as the batsmen gave away wickets at regular intervals. It did not fulfill Bangladesh’s hope of a big collection.

Bangladesh won the toss and decided to bat first at Mirpur Sherbangla Stadium on Wednesday. Bangladesh lost the wickets of two openers Tamim Iqbal and Liton Das in the first power play. Tamim returned with 51 runs after Liton’s first wicket dismissal for the team’s 33 runs.

Shanto gave hope to Bangladesh by holding on to one edge. He made a partnership of 44 runs with Mushfiqur Rahim to reduce the pressure of Bangladesh’s innings. However, after Mushfiqur’s departure for the team’s 95 runs, Bangladesh was under a lot of pressure when Shakib also departed. But at the other end of the crease, Shanto continued at a steady pace.

Finally, Shanto completed his first half-century of his international career with the fifth ball of the 30th over by Archer. Shanto brought up his first half-century of his ODI career with 5 boundaries off 67 balls for one run.

Shanto has earned the honor of ‘Man of the Series’ in BPL. It is also proved that BCB did not make a mistake by taking him to the team.
