Bangladesh’s progress in white-ball cricket has been quite good in this decade. This improvement began way back in 2012 when they reached the final of the Asia Cup. In the course to the final, they defeated mighty teams like India and Sri Lanka.
The final was between Bangladesh and Pakistan. After initial trouble, Misbah-ul-Haq helped Pakistan to score 236 from 50 overs. Bangladesh started the chase well but they lost wickets in the middle overs.
However they carried on the fight but finally lost the game by just 3 runs. Almost the entire Bangladesh squad broke down. Players like Mushfiqur Rahim cried on the field. During the post-match presentation, Shakib Al Hasan couldn’t control his tears and broke down.
5. Sachin Tendulkar after completing his 100th international century
Statistically, Sachin Tendulkar is the most successful player in the history of cricket. He has got the most number of runs and centuries than any other players. In the international circuit, Master Blaster has scored 100 centuries and the last one made him emotional.
During the 2011 World Cup, Sachin scored 2 hundreds and reached his 99th ton. He added a few more fifty-plus scores but couldn’t get one more ton. After almost a year, in the 2012 Asia Cup, Sachin scored his 100th ton against Bangladesh.
It took Sachin 35 balls to go from 80 to 100 runs. This shows the amount of nervousness he had at that moment. After reaching the three-figure mark, Sachin became emotional. As a result he shed a few tears and cried on the field.
