Bangladesh played against Australia in the third T20 match of Australia’s tour of Bangladesh. They have not only beaten Australia twice in the last three days, but they are also in a position to win their first cricket series against Australia. Mahmudullah became the first Bangla captain to win a trophy in front of Australia after winning the third T20.
In the second match, Mitchell Marsh and Shoriful Islam helped their team cross the line after Nasum Ahmed showed up in the first. The bowlers from Bangladesh were impressive throughout the series. Australia has been exploited time and time again to its detriment.
Australia has scored its two lowest totals in this series when they bat out their 20 overs. Matt Wade and company have scored 108 and 121 runs in their two games. It has been difficult for the batsmen to cope with Bangladesh’s spin attack. The bowlers have performed considerably better than the batting attack, but not enough to win.
The viral incident involving Shoriful Islam and Mitchell Marsh
The only silver lining for Australia is Mitchell Marsh’s form. In the second T20 against Bangladesh, he scored 45 runs and bowled one economical over. However, an incident between Shoriful Islam and Mitchell Marsh gained a lot of attention. A personal battle erupted on the field.
The video below shows the incident that was discussed on social media.
Despite a brilliant rivalry between two passionate players, Bangladesh again won. They clinched the series 3-0 with two more matches to play.

The Game’s Story:
The home side made 127/9 in 20 overs. Bangladesh was restricted to a manageable score by a good bowling performance by the visitors. Despite this, they only managed to make 117/4 in 20. They lost by 10 runs. This match should have been won by Australia.
However, they were unable to lead the team to victory. Another devastating loss has befallen them. The fans were disappointed with their performance-hopefully the next two games will be better. This was their third T20 loss.
In addition to his fast bowling, Jasprit Bumrah is also known for his batting. Previous games have shown him to be adept at defending deliveries.
Bumrah has played a crucial role in the ongoing five-match Test series against England. As a result of his four wickets, he played a crucial role.
In addition to the ball, he also contributed with the bat. Bumrah didn’t show any signs of flexing his muscles when Team India lost 9 wickets. He kept defending deliveries.
Bumrah continued to smash three fours and a six, unleashing his batting masterclass. Off Sam Curran’s bowling, he smashed a six. Bumrah surprised everyone with his exceptional batting.
With his crucial runs towards the end of the first Test, India stretched a healthy lead. The England cricket team was bowled out for 183 runs in their first innings. A 64-point performance by Joe Root, including 11 fours, led the way.
The Indian team responded by scoring 278 at the cost of all their wickets. Currently, the visitors lead by 95 runs and are comfortably in the lead. The first lead in the series belongs to Kohli & Co.
Bumrah flexes his muscles on Day 3
Jasprit Bumrah scored 28 off 34 balls with a strike rate of 82.35. It looked like he was at ease with the bat. Ollie Robinson dismissed him in the 85th over.
Robinson was the best bowler for the England cricket team. James Anderson took four wickets, while lanky pacer Pat Cummins accounted for five.
