Chasing a 202-run target set by Pakistan, the Tigers were 57 for two in the 8th over of the innings. Shakib was at the striking end. He went for a cheeky single, responding to his partner Tamim Iqbal’s call. In the process, he lost his cool and almost got himself out.
Had Bangladesh lost another wicket there, they would have already been out of the race. However, the maverick all-rounder somehow managed to get back to his position by a desperate drive and survived the run-out scare.
Thereafter, some good sportsmanship was displayed by Pakistan skipper Shahid Afridi, who fetched the fallen shoe of his counterpart, and handed it over to him.
Bangladesh may have eventually lost the match by 55 runs, but spectators will remember this battle for some certain reasons, and this particular incident certainly is one of them.
