Ball Stuck in Tanzid Hasan’s Helmet: Bizarre Scene in BAN vs NED T20 World Cup Match

Tanzid Hasan's Helmet

When a bouncer from Dutch bowler Vivian Kingma became trapped in Bangladeshi opener Tanzid Hasan’s helmet grill during a T20 World Cup match versus the Netherlands, an odd scenario resulted. The incident happened in Bangladesh’s third over of the game when Kingma bounced a crisp ball straight at Tanzid’s torso. Tanzid attempted a pull shot, but he mishandled it, allowing the ball to top-edge and rebound straight into his helmet’s grill.

Tanzid reacted quickly, taking off his helmet as the medical staff raced onto the field to do a concussion assessment. Luckily, the medical evaluation showed Tanzid had not broken any bones and could resume his play.

In a pivotal Group D encounter at the T20 World Cup, Bangladesh faced the Netherlands; both sides had won two of their matches to date. The victor will advance to the Super Eight stage of the competition, joining South Africa as the second qualifier.


In a rain-delayed encounter, Scott Edwards, the captain of the Netherlands, had previously won the toss and chosen to bowl. This is the venue’s (Arnos Vale Ground) inaugural international match.

Scenario of Super 8

South Africa has already guaranteed their place in the Super Eight in the very contested “group of death,” having won their first three matches against Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, and the Netherlands. Bangladesh, the Netherlands, Nepal, and Sri Lanka are now in competition for the second position.

Bangladesh defeated Sri Lanka by two wickets in a thrilling first encounter of the tournament, but they lost to the Proteas by four runs in their subsequent game.

In the same way, the Netherlands also want to bounce back from a recent loss to South Africa. Nepal is also in a precarious situation in the group after taking only one point from their first two games, while Sri Lanka is all but out from the competition following two defeats and one postponed match.
