Sports Reporter :
Bangladesh showed a respectable performance in the ICC Champions Trophy in England and Wales. Bangladesh reached the semi-final of the ICC Champions Trophy, one of the most prestigious cricket meet of the whole world.
Bangladesh became runners-up in Group-A securing three points from three matches. Bangladesh lost to England by eight wickets in the opening match of the ICC Champions Trophy on June 1.
The match between Bangladesh and Australia was washed out by rain on June 5.
Later, The Tigers registered a historic five-wicket victory over New Zealand in their last Group-A match on June 9.
But Bangladesh's dream to reach the final want in vain as they lost to defending champions India by nine wickets in the semi-final on June 15.
Though Bangladesh failed to get ticket of the final but the Tigers showed a gimmick performance. They for the first time confirmed their semi-final berth in the ICC Champions Trophy.
