Mahmudul Hasan Joy ICC U-19 World Cup 2020 century-
Mahmudul Hasan Joy, Remember the name. He has single-handedly played a supreme knock under pressure and has taken his country to its first ever U-19 World Cup final. It is going to be an all Asian affair in the finals on Sunday here at Senwes Park, Potchefstroom.Chasing 212, Bangladesh got off to a poor start losing 2 early wickets. After that what we saw was just brilliance. Mahmudul Hasan Joy first steadied the ship with Towhid Hridoy. The duo added 68 before Hridoy departed. Hasan Joy then took control of the game and showed all of us a masterclass in batting. He played the role of aggressor and stitched a 101-run stand with Shahadat Hossain, getting to his century in the process. He was not able to finish the game for his side but he dragged them inches towards the finish line. The skipper and Hossain sprayed the sprinkles on top of the cake as the Bangla Tigers roared into the Under-19 World Cup Finals.
A tough day, a day of despair for the Kiwis. Once again it is the semi-finals stage that they have faltered. It was a tough day with the ball for the Kiwis. They needed wickets at regular intervals but apart from the start they could not manage to do it in the middle. They came up against a young sensation who was just not going to back down and the Kiwis had no answer to that Bangla Tiger. The bowlers though bowled their hearts out but the runs on the board were not enough for them to defend. 4 off the 6 bowlers used got into the wickets column but all of them had just one each and that was not good enough on the day. New Zealand won’t play India in the finals but they will meet their neighbors Pakistan for the 3rd Place Playoff game.
For his match winning century, Mahmudul Hasan Joy is named the Man of the Match. Hasan Joy says he was just looking to rotate the strike as his role is to bat till the end. Says last time he missed on a century against New Zealand but this time he was not going to miss that. Tells he is feeling very good and thanks the Almighty.
Bangladesh skipper, Akbar Ali says the bowlers did a very good job in restricting New Zealand and the batters built the partnerships which was necessary. Says the spinners were bowling well and they had a plan against New Zealand. On Mahmudul Hasan Joy, Ali says he is exceptional and the hard work they put in the nets has paid off. Further adds that it is a treat to watch him bat. On playing their first-ever Under-19 Finals, Akbar says that they will play the finals as a normal game and not take any pressure. Adds India is a top side and they need to bring their A game. Tells Bangladesh fans are passionate and he hopes that they keep supporting them.
Bangladesh take on India in the finals on 9th February 2020. On the other hand, New Zealand take Pakistan on for the 3rd place playoffs. On 7th February 2020, Australia take on West Indies for the 5th place playoffs.
