As Bangladesh began their 2021 T20 World Cup campaign on Sunday, they got off to a dream start. The match was being played on the same ground where Oman hunted down the target with 10 wickets in hand earlier in the day. It was obvious that both skippers would have preferred fielding and the coin flip went in favour of Mahmudullah - Bangladesh's captain.

The team came out all guns blazing on the field and looked in some mood to create an instant impact. Taskin Ahmed and Mustafizur Rahman bowled brilliant opening overs to put pressure on Scotland, with score reading 5/0 in 2 overs. This is when Mohammad Saifuddin was introduced into the attack and the right-arm pacer did not take much time to weave his magic.

Saifuddin dismisses Coetzer with a brilliant delivery

The 24-year-old started his spell by bowling hattrick of dot deliveries in Oman. Kyle Coetzer was feeling the pressure and as he tried to hit a boundary on the next one, Saifuddin bowled a scorching out-swinging yorker which crashed onto the off stump.

While the dismissal deserved lot of praise, it was the bowler's celebration that hogged all the limelight. Saifuddin produced his own version of Hasan Ali's famous 'bomb-explosion' celebration, something which the Bangladesh cricketer has done in past as well.

Watch the video here:

Saifuddin bowled 2 overs with the new ball, taking 1 wicket while conceding only 11 runs. After he set the platform, the Bangladesh spin duo of Shakib Al Hasan and Mahedi Hasan took over as they wreaked havoc with Scotland's batters falling like pack of cards.
