We extend our heartiest greetings and warm felicitations to the Bangladesh Cricket Team for winning the second consecutive match of the five-match T20 series against the visiting Australia. This win brings joy and satisfaction among people amid frustrations and uncertainties caused by Covid-19.

Bangladesh T20 team has a good pace attack, bolstered with Mustafizur, Taskin, Shoriful, Rubel Hossain and Saifuddin alongside good and world class spinners. Besides, Nurul Hasan Sohan, Shamim Hossain and Afif are very capable of finishing the game.  They are in good rhythm and showing their talent in this series as well.

We wish the Bangladesh team the very 

best for the rest of the three matches

It has been noticed that all the members of Bangladesh Cricket Team played as a team according to the plan. The young players’ boldness and confidence in the field must get appreciation as they showed their all-out abilities in a difficult situation and achieved the victory.

We all know to clinch victory against Australia is not an easy task for Bangladesh. Yet, our young players did it and we also express the hope that the winning spree of the Bangladesh cricket team would continue in the next three matches.

Australia are playing without some of their big stars like David Warner, Steven Smith and Glenn Maxwell while Bangladesh are also missing some important players like Tamim Iqbal, Mushfiqur Rahim and Liton Das.  But their absence has created a great opportunity for other players to show their standard.  We believe if confidence could be packed into the team, our young tigers can beat any team in the world.

Bangladesh team now have a good chance to win a bilateral series against Australia for the first time in any format of cricket. Therefore, we hope Bangladesh will seal the five-match T20 series in advance against Australia today. We wish the Bangladesh team the very best for the rest of the three matches.
