- he ran out Zunaid
- he got out in a ugly way and started the middle-order collapse
- he took 100 balls to score 60.
If Imrul didn't play that innings, even Shafiul's brilliance wouldn't have been enough to take us to the glory. I agree to the fact that Imrul got run out needlessly, but he played a really important knock to keep us in the match. And Junaid was & has always been too lazy between the wickets, it was him who was stupid enough to get trapped there. It would've looked one of the most easiest singles If it were even Raqibul or Shakib instead of Junayed.
And don't always judge one's innings according to the strike rate, you gotta understand the match situation.
