Cricket Deep's Corner Soumya Sarkar batting

Deep’s Corner – Good fight back from Bangladesh

🕓 Reading time: 1 minute


Bangladesh lost Tamim Iqbal early, but Soumya Sarkar, playing instead of Imrul Kayes, switched to third gear and counter-attacked in sublime fashion. He was unfazed by the dismissal of Mahmudullah Riyad and as soon as Shakib Al Hasan joined him, it was a matter of joy for the cricketing Gods to witness their crisp stroke-play. Bangladesh seemed to have lost their way when both Soumya and Shakib were dismissed, but Nurul Hasan swelled the total and the brave resistance dished out by Kamrul Islam Rabbi in the end, earned him accolades. It was a fitting reply from the visitors despite the setbacks.
