About the game

I will let others who went to the games to elaborate more. But it was a very tense game. BD crowds were vocal and it felt like home.

Tamim/Shakib seemed very focused. Tamim is a sweet timer of the ball. So is Soumya. When he connects, it seems effortless. Shakib plays intelligently and notices the fielder and improvises.

Rubel is clearly the fastest BD bowler. He zips through. Fizz is very quick too. Even though he gave a lot of runs, he seemed threatening and his bouncers were good.

Fielding was electric. Esp Litton Das. That dude was amazing in the boundary.

Arifur's dropped catch was the only big miss. Tamim was on the boundary too and when Arifur dropped it, he collapsed to the ground with his hand in the head.

But WI players were absolute monsters in batting. Our sixes barely crossed the ropes but Russell/Brathwaite/Fletcher tonked the ball for miles. Sailed over the stadium.

We could have never won if we planned to contain them. We took our chances and got those wickets. Fizz had to bowl those bouncers and make them play.

The game ebbed and flowed a lot. Apu held his nerve and bowled a magnificent last over.
