Bangladesh fought brilliantly but Australia always had too many on the board and they solidified their position in the top half of the table with a 48 runs win of the ICC World Cup 2019 at Trent Bridge in Nottingham on Thursday.

Cricketing world was praising and congratulation Bangladesh on Twitter after the match.

Now let’s see some of the Tweets of ex-cricketers and experts:

British-Indian journalist Mihir Bose tweeted, “Highest one day total by Bangladesh ever. They lose but are showing just the spirit that holds much promise as they go forward.”

“Impressive ,” Zimbabwean cricketer Mpumelelo Mbangwa tweeted.

“Bangladesh have made 300+ in an ODI innings on nine occasions since the 2015 World Cup. Three of those innings have come in the last 18 days,” web portal The CricViz Analyst tweeted.

Cricket World’s Indian cricket correspondent Chetan Narula tweeted, “So, Bangladesh did add 166 to that score. But not enough. Valiant chase though, improbable from the beginning. Does that signal end of any interest in league stage this early?

Earlier, David Warner went on to score a fabulous 166, with Aaron Finch and Usman Khawaja scoring half-centuries. Australia went on to post a massive 381/5, with Glenn Maxwell and Alex Carrey getting some hits in the final overs.”

“Soumya Sarkar will tell his grandchildren about the day he dismissed the top-three of Australia’s batting lineup in a World Cup match,” Indian Sports Writter Vinayakk Mohanarangan tweeted.

Former Indian Cricketer Hemang Badani tweeted, “David Warner in tremendous form and looked so resolute today to make a big. He is hungry as hell. In reply, Tamim Iqbal gave the Tigers a good start with a fine 62 but couldn’t carry on and it was the pair of Mushfiqur Rahim and Mahmudullah who fought brilliantly to get them closer but despite a century from the former, Bangladesh couldn’t cross the line.”

“Brilliant chase by @BCBtigers, second 300+ score. Great innings by Rahim. Certainly second strongest Asian team,” Indian writer Aashish Chandorkar tweeted.

Indian cricket commentator and journalist Harsha Bhogle tweeted, “Was such a good chase till that wicket of Tamim. Bangladesh are showing that outside of Starc and Cummins, there are opportunities to be had when you play Australia.”

“Got to give credit for Bangladesh for coming as close as they have. Love their fight. They really are the 2nd best Asian team in the world cup,” Indian flautist Naveen Kumar tweeted.

Former South African cricketer Robin John Peterson tweeted, “Even though they probably going to lose this one well done Bangladesh really played some very good cricket most tournament established players made some big impacts but really showed great fight as a group.”

“Bangladesh churn up their highest ever ODI total. Had to happen this,” Indian Freelance cricket writer Rohit Sankar tweeted.
