Blind World T20

Bangladesh bounce back

Bangladesh bounced back from an opening loss as they handed South Africa a 72-run defeat in their second match at the Blind Cricket World T20 yesterday.

Bangladesh had slumped to a 129-run defeat at the hands of defending champions India in the opening match of the tournament on Monday, but they came back with some style in the second match..

Abdul Malek (90) and Mohsin Hosen Joy (62) set the platform with a 154-run opening stand. Malek hit eight fours in his 64-ball stay before being run out on the first ball of the final over. By that point however, they had reached a strong position and went on to post 223, boosted by 43 extras.

In reply, South Africa could only reach 151 for the loss of two wickets in their allotted overs with Ephraim Mathabo top-scoring with a 53-ball 47.

Bangladesh will play the third match against Nepal today.
