Bangladesh Wins Test Match Against Zimbabwe

Bangladesh Vs Zimbabwe : Test Series 2021 Bangladesh beat Zimbabwe by 220 runs to win the one-off Test. Throughout the Test, the tourists displayed a lot of spirits, particularly with the bat, as their batsmen took advantage of the favourable batting environment. Liton, Mahmudullah, and Taskin's resilience enabled them to achieve a big first-innings tally in the opening innings. The scores by Shanto and Shadman in the second innings enabled them to set a massive target of 477 for the opponents. Bangladesh was 132/6 at one point in their first innings. You have to seize key moments in the game, and Zimbabwe was unable to do so. Bangladesh was successful in doing so, and Mominul and his team deserved that win. Brendon Taylor batted brilliantly for Zimbabwe but was caught out at the wrong time. Kaitano had a strong debut. His 311 ball 87 in Zimbabwe's first innings warrants a special note. In the first and second innings, Brendon Taylor hit 81 and 92 runs, respectively. Zimbabwe w

Leslie Hylton Cricketer

Many of you might not be familiar with the name Lesley Hilton. He was a West Indies fast bowler who was unfortunately, the first cricketer to be hanged to death. Lesley Hilton's life was not a bed of roses. He had to overcome many difficulties in his life to achieve the status of a cricketer. He never saw his father and mother died at the age of three. He was brought up by his sister. But he lost her too, when he was young. He was deprived of education and good living conditions. Poverty was the  main issue. In addition, the  Jamaican had to face many apartheid issues also due to his colour. But he fought against all these odds and obstacles, and managed to reach the West Indies cricket team. In early days he tried his luck in a tailoring shop, but failed. He switched to cricket. He couldn't afford a coaching circle, so he sticked to the bowling department. He had good pace and it was recognised by the cricket team authorities. He was selected to the West Indies team, just d
