The United States of America (USA) registered a historic win over Bangladesh in the first T20I of the three-match series at the Prairie View Cricket Complex. Chasing a modest target of 154 runs, the USA batsmen displayed grit and determination to secure victory.

Bangladesh falter despite Tohid Hridoy’s fifty

Bangladesh, after put in to bat first, were restricted to a score of 153/6 in their allotted 20 overs. Openers Litton Das (14) and Soumya Sarkar (20) provided a decent start, but the middle order failed to capitalize. The only bright spark was a well-composed 58 runs off 47 balls from Towhid Hridoy, studded with 4 fours and two maximums. The USA bowlers shared the spoils effectively, with Steven Taylor leading the attack with figures of 2/9 in his three overs.

USA chase down target in a tense finish

In reply, the USA innings got off to a shaky start as they lost their captain Monank Patel (12) cheaply. However, a crucial partnership between Steven Taylor (28) and Andries Gous (23) steadied the ship. Later, Harmeet Singh (33 not out off 13 balls) displayed some power hitting with three sixes, taking the USA closer to the target.

Corey Anderson (34) also chipped in with a valuable knock before Mustafizur Rahman (2/41) took two wickets in an over to create some tension. Ultimately, Harmeet’s four runs sealed the win for the USA with three balls remaining.

For his heroics with the bat, Harmeet was adjudged the Player of the Match.

Here’s how Twitter reacted:

Few days back Shakib said Bangladesh are not being able to prepare well as they aren’t having enough games against top teams.

Today they lost to USA, who will be playing their maiden WC next month.
