Tamim Iqbal Run Out : With the introduction of a number of T20 leagues around the world and the fierce competition in international cricket, fitness standards have also been revolutionized in the modern day cricket game. Majority of the international teams have set strict fitness parameters for their players which has also a brought a definite change in their performance and has helped them be on par with some of the best cricketers in the world. During the second NZ vs BAN ODI game, Kiwi all-rounder Jimmy Neesham was also seen using his brilliant fitness skills.
In the ongoing New Zealand vs Bangladesh 2nd ODI match, Bangladesh’s senior opener Tamim Iqbal looked in an excellent touch while composing an impressive 81-run stand for the second wicket with Soumya Sarkar. However, Tamim’s fine innings of 78 runs off 108 balls was ended in a heartening manner as New Zealand all-rounder Jimmy Neesham showed brilliant football skills to affect a superb run-out dismissal. During the 31st over of the Bangladeshi innings, Mushfiqur Rahim who was on strike called Tamim for a risky run but then sent him back, however, Neesham’s terrific flick with the left leg onto the stumps found the opener short of his crease.
After a disappointing performance in the first ODI match, Bangladesh have posted a challenging total of 271 for 6 in their 50 overs in the 2nd ODI. Tamim played a lovely innings of 78 runs while Mohammad Mithun stole the show with his fabulous knock of 73 runs off 57 balls that included 6 fours and 2 sixes. For New Zealand, Mitchell Santner picked two wickets while the trio of Kyle Jamieson, Trent Boult and Matt Henry finished with a wicket each.
