The wicket-yielding full toss, and Munro's reverse-slap

The missed trick

Colin Munro went after the Bangladesh bowlers from the first over, and it quickly became apparent that he was standing outside the crease and walking all over the place to make room for almost every delivery. In the third over, he swung and missed against Mashrafe Mortaza before wicketkeeper Nurul Hasan attempted to run him out with an underarm throw.

Later in the same over, Munro collected a big six over midwicket and a four over third man, none of which was hit with his feet inside the crease. So if Hasan had realised that Munro was venturing outside his crease frequently, why did he not stand up to the stumps to keep the batsman in the crease?

The one that stood out

Munro struck some amazing blows during his 101, but the first six off Mahmudullah in his 28-run over stood out. Off a delivery that had little pace, Munro reverse-slapped over short third man, and sent the ball into the grassbanks. It was a big hit, and his brute power easily stood out. Two balls later, he hit another six with a switch hit, but that was more of a slog. The first one took the crown.

The dreaded full toss

Sabbir Rahman rued getting out to a full toss in the first T20, so when Colin de Grandhomme laid another one at him in the fourth over, he was angry at not being able to clear the in-field. Even as Sabbir chastised himself upon seeing Kane Williamson stop his push to cover, Tamim was halfway down when Sabbir noticed and sent him back. Williamson's throw reached the bowler, who fumbled initially. But de Grandhomme eventually completed the run-out and the full toss had yielded a wicket again.

The gamble

After Ish Sodhi had conceded 16 off his first over, Kane Williamson would have been forgiven for taking him out of the attack. But Williamson brought him back, in the 13th over. Sodhi bowled a poor wide delivery, but took out Sabbir Rahman with his next ball. And with the over costing just two, the gamble had paid off handsomely.

The timely break

Williamson brought himself into the attack in the eighth over of the chase and worked his way through the middle overs. The gamble paid off when Williamson removed Mosaddek Hossain in his third over. The batsman pulled in the air, and Mitchell Santner ran hard to his right, then dived full-length to complete a superb catch.
