BELGIUM BEAT FRANCE BY 17 RUNS.
Muneeb Mohammad 39 | Rohullah Mangal (3/6)
Ali Raza 18 | Shagharai Sefat (2/19)


The batters of France must hang their heads in shame after such a dreadful performance here in Cartama. Their ineptitude prevented Rohullah Mangal to become the hero of this game. They were sluggish with the bat in hand, and this defeat will hurt them tremendously.

All of them seemed like picking up the length of the ball a tad too late, and this proved to be their undoing for the majority of this game. France never looked like being in the chase, and it was a superb performance from the bowlers of Belgium to restrict them to just 76.

It is an unbelievable effort, as it is very rare that sides are able to defend double-digit scores in this format of the game. Top marks to the Belgium bowling unit for pulling this off! Shagharai Sefat was the star.

So this is us- Mohul and Bidipto- signing off from this match. Do stay with us here on Sportskeeda, as we continue bringing to you many more such exciting games. Goodbye!
