Bangladesh beat Oman by 26 runs in their second match of Round 1 of the ongoing T20 World Cup on Tuesday in Oman.
Shakib Al Hasan led the Tigers both with bat and ball to seal the match.
After the shocking defeat in the first match against Scotland, Bangladesh had no way but to win against Oman. Tigers managed to win the match despite disappointing batting performance after winning the toss and opted to bat first.
While chasing a challenging target of 154, the hosts Oman tumbled for 127 for nine in 20 overs and lost the match by 26 runs. They had a 10-wicket win in the first match against Papua New Guinea.
Jatinder Singh, who had hit a fifty in the first match, scored 40 this time— highest for Oman, but his effort went in vain. Any of the other Omani batters were not able to offer a big challenge to the Bangladeshi bowling attack.
Mustafizur Rahman took a wicket in the second over of Oman’s innings, and he ended up taking four conceding 36 runs in four overs. Bangladeshi bowlers kept scalping wickets in regular intervals, and Oman was never in a better position while chasing a challenging target.
