Twitter reactions on Bangladesh’s highest ODI score: Twitter was exhilarated to witness Bangladesh posting a formidable 330/6 vs South Africa.
During the fifth match of the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 between South Africa and Bangladesh at The Oval, Bangladesh posted their highest-ever total in ODIs in an amazing performance with the bat.
After South Africa captain Faf du Plessis won the toss and chose to field, Bangladeshi openers in Tamim Iqbal (16) and Soumya Sarkar (42) shared a 60-run opening stand. It was eventually a 142-run partnership for the third wicket between Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim which laid the foundation for the others to follow.
Both the senior batsmen stood tall on their potential and experience to make sure they do justice with the start provided with their opening batsmen. From hitting the South African bowlers to all parts of the ground to banking on the opposition’s poor fielding efforts, Shakib and Rahim thrived on a helpful batting surface.
While Shakib scored 75 (84) with the help of eight fours and a six, Rahim ended up scoring 78 (80) with the help of eight fours. With Rahim getting out in the 43rd over, there were doubts regarding if the lower-order batsmen would be able to register a 300+ score.
Having said that, a 66-run partnership between Mahmudullah (46*) and Mosaddek Hossain (26) aided Bangladesh to post their highest-ever score in ODIs. Bangladesh’s previous best score was 329/6 against Pakistan during the first ODI of their tour of Bangladesh in 2015.

54 of the last 4 overs and Bangladesh have posted a daunting score. SA, struggling with their bowling, conceding over 300 in both their games. But looks like we will have the first close game of the World Cup #SAvBAN
