Zimbabwe is on a dream run in the ongoing ICC T20 World Cup 2022. Against Pakistan, they looked out of the game but eventually won it. The game ended in a thrilling fashion that event lit up the tournament. It was the same situation against Bangladesh, too. However, in the end, the team lost by a small margin of just three runs. In this article, we take a look at how Twitter reacted after Zimbabwe lost to Bangladesh by a small margin in the T20 World Cup 2022.
Zimbabwe lose to Bangladesh in T20 World Cup 2022
Batting first, Bangladesh lost a few early wickets but then came to their own. The batters steadied the ship but the necessary scoring rate was not present. Nevertheless, the team reached a score of 150-7. Considering the decent bowling attack at their disposal, it looked like Bangladesh will win the game.
Zimbabwe started in a disappointing fashion. They were under pressure and lost some quick wickets. Some important batters such as Craig Ervine and Sikandar Raza also lost their wickets cheaply. However, the team was pulled back into the game by the experienced Sean Williams. He scored 64 runs from 42 deliveries to give a real chance to the nation. However, in the end, the pressure caught up and the team lost the encounter.

Zimbabwe entered the T20 World Cup with very less hope. They had been battling many issues but after overcoming all of them, the African nation is doing well in the ongoing T20 World Cup. While luck and rainfall favoured them against South Africa, they held their nerves to beat Pakistan. They were close to getting a win against Bangladesh too. However, it did not end in that desired result. Now, after the game against Bangladesh, here is how Twitter reacted:
This is one of the best World Cup matches I’ve ever seen. What an incredible performance Zimbabwe. Fielding let them down. Else could have been a positive result for them #ZIMvsBAN
