Stay away from victory or draw, many did not believe that Bangladesh could just fight by going on a tour of New Zealand. But this time the history changed. A new dawn of Bangladesh cricket has dawned on the shores of Tasman.
Bangladesh won a historic victory on New Zealand soil. The Tigers have never before won in any format on Kiwi soil. With that elite version of Gero Cuttle Cricket, again by a huge margin of 8 wickets. Incredible, unimaginable, extraordinary – no adjective is enough to compare this victory.
Bangladesh gave birth to the first in this victory against New Zealand. It was also the first win against a top five Test playing nation outside the country. However, the cricketers were not seen cheering on the field even after such a victory. Muminul and Mushfiqur performed the post-match formalities keeping themselves as restrained as possible.
However, back in the dressing room could not control themselves. The cricketers were overwhelmed by the flood. The red-green forces were seen celebrating the historic victory by singing ‘We will win’.
The video of the celebration of the Tigers uploaded on the official Facebook page of the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) shows that Mushfiqur’s joy is a little more than everyone else. He addressed everyone and said, “You have to enjoy, brothers, enjoy.”
Meanwhile, congratulations are pouring in after the historic victory against New Zealand. Meanwhile, Tigers ODI captain Tamim Iqbal also congratulated his teammates.
In a message posted on his verified Facebook page after the match on Wednesday (December 5), Tamim wrote, “Great victory, historic victory. Congratulations to the whole team.
Year after year, tour after tour we have returned from New Zealand empty handed. This time the situation was more difficult due to many reasons. But this team brought a great victory by removing all the obstacles. Going to New Zealand and losing to New Zealand is now one of the most difficult tasks in the world of cricket. We showed, we can!
Best of all, it’s a win-win for the entire team. The team played great spirited cricket. No compliment is enough for Ebadat’s extraordinary bowling. From victory to calm, from Liton to Miraj, Yasir, calm, even Taizul who took the great last catch in the transfer and every member of the team, it is the victory of the combined contribution of all.
Meanwhile, Tiger all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan did not seem to sleep. With 8 runs away from winning the match, he tweeted, ‘What a great start to the year for Bangladesh cricket. Congratulations to the captain, players and coaching staff.
