Bangladesh secured their spot in the Super 8 of the T20 World Cup 2024 by defeating Nepal by 21 runs on Monday, June 17 at the Arnos Vale Ground in Kingstown, St Vincent. Nepal, who had previously pushed Aiden Markram’s South Africa close, gave their all in an effort to defeat a Test-playing nation in the history of the mega event, but ultimately fell short once more.

Meanwhile, the Bangladesh team finished second in their group with 6 points and a net run rate of -0.333, thanks to winning 3 out of their 4 games.

Bangladesh also set a record for defending the lowest score in the T20 World Cups. However, they did not make the best of starts against Nepal. Tanzid Hasan Tamim gave away his wicket to Sompal Kami on the very first ball of the innings. Najmul Hossain Shanto’s poor campaign with the bat continued as Dipendra Singh Airee dismissed him. Litton Das tried to steady the innings but was out after scoring just 10 runs.

Towhid Hridoy, Bangladesh’s standout batter this season, also got out cheaply. Shakib Al Hasan, Jaker Ali Anik, and Mahmudullah Riyad got starts with knocks of 17, 12, and 13 respectively, before departing. It was Rishad Hossain’s cameo of 13 runs off 7 balls and Taskin Ahmed’s unbeaten 12 runs that helped the Tigers post 106 on the board in 19.3 overs.

For Sandeep Lamichhane, it was a memorable day as he became the second-fastest bowler to reach the landmark of 100 T20I wickets. Lamichhane finished with impressive figures of 4-1-17-2. Additionally, Sompal Kami, Dipendra Singh Airee, and skipper Rohit Paudel also contributed well with the ball, each picking up 3 wickets apiece.
