In an act of selfless bravery, Bangladeshi batsman Tamim Iqbal walked out to bat at number 11 despite suffering a broken wrist. He was hit by a Suranga Lakmal delivery on his left wrist very early in the Bangladesh innings.
When Mustafaizur Rahman was run out, everybody thought the Bangladeshi innings has come to an end. Then to everyone’s amazement, Tamim Iqbal came out to bat and took the guard with just one hand. His dramatic entrance rejuvenated Mushfiqur Rahim who had already made a fantastic century.
Watching his teammate inspired Mushfiqur as he clobbered 32 runs off 14 deliveries to push Bangladesh to 261 from 229/9 before holing out off the third delivery of the final over.
Meanwhile, Sri Lanka’s chase never took off as they kept losing wickets regularly. They were bowled out for just 124 in 35.2 overs as Bangladesh won by 137 runs – their first ODI win in UAE.
Here’s the video of Tamim Iqbal batting with a broken wrist:
