Bangladesh’s Tamim Iqbal stayed faithful to his commitment and struck the primary century of the current year’s World Twenty20 competition to secure a spot in the principle draw with a 54-run triumph over Oman in their downpour hit match on Sunday.
The opener, who had told the group mentor he would hit a ton, turned into the main Bangladesh player to score a hundred in a Twenty20 International as his side demonstrated they are too great to shake with partner countries to meet all requirements for the Super 10 stage.
Put into bat, Bangladesh posted a forcing 180-2, which demonstrated a lot for Oman’s constrained batting assets as the partner country, pursuing a changed 120-run triumph focus in 12 overs, oversaw 65-9 to lose by means of the Duckworth-Lewis strategy.
The triumph sees Bangladesh join India, Australia, New Zealand and Pakistan in Group Two of the Super 10 stage.
Bangladesh got off to a moderate begin, particularly with Soumya Sarkar (12) attempting to center the ball all through his 22-ball stay in the center.
Tamim’s extensive variety of strokes, which he underlined with 10 fours and five sixes, implied the southpaw (103 not out), who turns 27 in the not so distant future, couldn’t be tamed.
Tamim’s animosity saw him race to fifty off 35 balls and he and Sabbir Rahman (44) ravaged 97 keeps running in nine overs to establish the framework for a major aggregate.
Tamim took 60 balls to achieve his century, raising the turning point with a limit off Bilal Khan before jumping in happiness and motioning to mentor Chandika Hathurusingha.
“We were having this camp back home when Chandi requested a hundred,” Tamim said at the innings break. “I put my hands up and said, ‘I will give you a hundred in this World Cup’. It feels great that I stayed faithful to my obligation.”
Oman faltered at a very early stage in their pursuit, which saw two downpour interferences before Bangladesh finished a clinical triumph.
Netherlands beat Ireland by 12 keeps running in the prior qualifier, which was diminished to a six-overs-a-side challenge taking after perpetual downpour in the north Indian city.
