Montreal Tigers roared to victory yesterday in the Global T20 Canada league. Shakib shines in this Montrel’s consecutive win with the help of Chris Lynn’s exceptional performance. The Montreal Tigers secured a convincing seven-wicket win against the Mississauga Panthers.

Shakib Al Hasan took center stage as the Tigers began their innings, chasing a target of 140 runs set by the Panthers. Batting at number three in the second over, Shakib immediately asserted his authority on the game, dispatching the ball to all corners of the ground with a blazing blade.

Shakib showcased his intentions with a graceful drive through mid-on for an early boundary, displaying crisp timing and a perfect blend of power and finesse. The crowd erupted in applause as he effortlessly whipped the next delivery through square leg, adding another four runs to his tally.

Shakib’s aggression took its toll on the left-arm spinner Praveen Kumar during the fifth over as he conceded 20 runs in just four deliveries. Shakib’s calculated assault involved an aerial shot that cleared the short third-man fielder, resulting in a boundary, followed by a flat six as he confidently danced down the track to launch the ball straight over the bowler’s head. The next delivery faced a similar fate, sailing for another maximum, leaving bowlers scratching their heads.

The fans were amazed by Shakib’s brilliant shot choices and skill as he elegantly swept the ball for another boundary, quickly reaching 30 runs in only 13 deliveries. But as the Powerplay ended, the game’s pace slowed down while the Panthers tried to make a comeback.

Shakib’s innings eventually came to an end in the ninth over, as he was lured forward by a deceptive delivery from Usman Qadir. The sharp turn and bounce left Shakib stranded, and the wicketkeeper Azam Khan made no mistake in taking off the bails. Disappointed but having made a significant impact, Shakib walked off the field after a commendable 24-ball 36.

However, the Montreal Tigers’ run chase was far from over, as the hard-hitting Chris Lynn stepped up to continue the assault. Known for his aggressive batting style, Lynn was in no mood to show mercy to the Panthers’ bowlers. He unleashed a barrage of boundaries and sixes, keeping the scoreboard ticking at a rapid pace.

Lynn’s fantastic performance was a sight to see. He scored 64 runs in 45 balls, hitting nine fours and a massive six. Partnering with Sherfane Rutherford, they formed a strong team and added 59 runs together, leaving the Panthers’ bowlers confused. Lynn’s strength and Rutherford’s skill helped the Tigers win by seven wickets with 4.1 overs remaining.

Earlier in the match, Shakib Al Hasan had already displayed his prowess with the ball, picking up a crucial wicket for 28 runs. Alongside him, the left-arm seamer Kaleem Sana showcased a sensational display of swing bowling, bagging three wickets for just eight runs. The duo’s impressive performance significantly contributed to restricting the Panthers to a modest total of 140 runs, despite James Neesham’s valiant half-century effort.

Shakib’s success in this game was not a one-time event. In the Montreal Tigers’ last match, he had already shown his all-round skills, playing a crucial role in their five-wicket victory. In that match, he performed exceptionally well both as a batsman and a bowler, which only added to his reputation as one of the most versatile and influential cricketers in the league.
