England suffer T20I whitewash since 2016 after defeat by Bangladesh
Market Desk (sports): Bangladesh inflicted on England the world champions’ first Twenty20 series whitewash since 2016 after concluding a hugely positive run of matches by exacting fitting punishment for the tourists’ chaotic and error-strewn performance.
The match will be memorable in contrasting ways for Ben Duckett – guilty of two boundary-assisting misfields, one terrible drop and running out Jos Buttler and also for Litton Das, whose 73 off 57 balls, set up Bangladesh’s total of 158.
The Daily Mail headlined that Bangladesh whitewashed England in a pathetic manner.
But the headline of The Times overshadowed everyone. It’s winter in England now. Highlighting that, they wrote, ‘England’s confused winter ended in a murmur!’
In the first T20 of the series, England scored 156/6 in Chittagong and lost by 6 wickets. Mirpur lost the series by 4 wickets after being all out for 117 runs in the second match.
Chasing a target of 159 runs in the last match on Tuesday, England could only lose 6 wickets for 142 runs. Bangladesh whitewashed 3-0 with a 16-run victory.
