    Bangladesh needed something extraordinary to win the third T20I against Australia in defense of a small total of 127 games and the Tigers did it in style to rewrite history at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur yesterday.

    Bangladeshi captain Mahmoud Riyadh exploded after his side’s 10-game winning streak against Australia in the third international T20 at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur yesterday. Having already won the first two games of the five-game series, the close victory helped the Tigers win the series 3-0 – their first win in a row in any form against the Aussies. Photo: FIROZ AHMED

    It was the lowest total in the shortest form of the game that Bangladesh has ever successfully defended, coming from a disciplined bowling that reduced the Aussies to 117 for four and sealed an unforgettable 10-game winning streak.

    For Australia, it was the continuation of a bad course in the T20Is, the defeat of the series by Bangladesh the fifth consecutive defeat of the series in the shortest form of the game.

    After lowering the equation to 22 required by the last two over, Mustafizur Rahman caused a separate show. The left-handed sailor gave only one run in the 19th over, changing the course of the game.

    Mahedi Hasan kept his nerves in spite of the fact that Alex Carey broke him for six of the first ball of the final, but things went his way then and he received just five more runs.

    Mustafizur finished with the most economical figures of his career, received just nine runs from four over and got a wicket. It was also the most economical bowling performance from a Bangladeshi to T20Is in the last seven years.

    Mahmoudullah scored fifty points to help the Tigers win a winning streak and the Bangladeshi governor was rewarded with the Man of the Match award.

    The 35-year-old informed that he had a conversation with the team after the series in Zimbabwe, urging the players to play with big hearts and to express themselves and that he has left.

    “We had a conversation in Zimbabwe after the T20Is about the need to climb. We felt we were a very good team, but the scores do not reflect that. We always felt we were a very balanced team. We just had to play with big hearts and “a balanced mind in performing our skills,” Mahmoudullah said during yesterday’s post-match presentation.

    Governor Tigers T20I wrote lyrics for his bowling alley and added that he wanted Shakib Al Hasan to talk to the team before leaving to defend the low group.

    “I think the boys got up at important moments. The way they played tonight was incredible. But the (our) bowlers did the job very well, a lot of cutters and slower balls. When we were going to get back on the pitch, I wanted Shakib to talk to “He said that no matter what happened, we should get an early wicket and increase the pressure. Mustafizur did a great job once again, he was great tonight,” he said.
