Bangladesh’s Litton Das Becomes 1st Player to Get Out for a Duck on Birthday in Men’s International Cricket

Bangladesh’s Litton Das had an unfortunate start to his 29th birthday as he faced a dismissal for a golden duck, getting out on the very first ball of the World Cup match against New Zealand. Bangladesh was put in to bat, and Litton took on the experienced Kiwi bowler Trent Boult. However, his attempt resulted in a mistimed shot that sent the ball soaring into the air, providing an easy catch to Matt Henry at fine leg.

Litton Das, a seasoned player in his 80th one-day international, has shown his prowess in the format with 2,339 runs, boasting a top score of 176 against Zimbabwe in 2020. In the ongoing World Cup, he scored 13 in the match against Afghanistan and 76 in a losing effort against England.

For Trent Boult, the wicket of Litton Das marked his 199th in one-day internationals, highlighting his significant contribution to New Zealand’s fast bowling arsenal.

On the other side, New Zealand’s captain, Kane Williamson, made his return to the team, marking his first appearance in the World Cup. He won the toss and chose to bowl first against Bangladesh, showcasing his leadership and tactical decision-making in the tournament. The match between these two cricketing nations promises an exciting clash as they aim to secure a crucial victory in the World Cup competition.
