Beware India! USA script shocking series win vs Bangladesh with one match left ahead of T20 World Cup

India, who are placed in the same group as the USA in the T20 World Cup, will be closely watching these developments.

Bangladesh’s preparation for the T20 World Cup has taken a major turn for the worse after a surprise series defeat to the United States of America. This is the first time the USA has won a T20 series against a full member nation, raising concerns for Bangladesh and even India and Pakistan, who face the USA in the World Cup group stage.

Warning sign for India Cricket Team

India, who are placed in the same group as the USA in the T20 World Cup, will be closely watching these developments. The USA’s victory over a higher-ranked team serves as a wake-up call for all teams to underestimate them at their peril.

Bangladesh falters in batting chase

Chasing a modest target of 145 set by the USA in the second T20I, Bangladesh’s batting faltered yet again. Only four Bangladeshi batsmen managed double-digit scores, with captain Najmul Hossain Shanto (36) and Shakib Al Hasan (30) being the highest scorers.

Ali Khan’s three wickets for 25 runs stifled the Bangladeshi chase, restricting them to 138 runs all out, handing the USA a dominant 6-run victory and an unassailable series lead.

USA vs BAN: Echoes of Previous Defeat

This loss follows a five-wicket defeat for Bangladesh in the first T20I on Tuesday. This horror run comes as a major blow to the World Number 9 team, raising questions about their form and preparation for the upcoming World Cup.

Bangladesh struggles continue

Bangladesh’s performance with the bat has been a major concern in this series. In the first T20I, they could only manage 153 runs, with Towhid Hridoy’s 58 and Mahmudullah’s 31 being the only significant contributions.

The USA bowlers, led by Steven Taylor (2/9) and Harmeet Singh (4-0-27-0), kept the Bangladeshi batsmen in check, allowing the USA to chase down the target comfortably with five wickets to spare.

Can Bangladesh salvage any Pride?

With the series already lost, Bangladesh will be desperate to salvage some pride in the third and final T20I scheduled for May 25th. The team needs to address their batting woes and find a way to cope with the challenge posed by a resurgent USA side.
