India v Bangladesh, 2015
Wisden's review of the second ODI, India v Bangladesh, 2015
Second one-day international At Mirpur, June 21, 2015 (day/night). Bangladesh won by six wickets (D/L). ‡India 200 (45 overs) (S. Dhawan 53, M. S. Dhoni 47, S. K. Raina 34; Mustafizur Rahman 6-43); Bangladesh 200-4 (38 overs) (Soumya Sarkar 34, Liton Das 36, Mushfiqur Rahim 31, Shakib Al Hasan 51*). MoM: Mustafizur Rahman.
Mustafizur followed his fine debut with an even more impressive performance, demolishing India for 200 with six wickets. Only Zimbabwe's Brian Vitori, against Bangladesh in August 2011, had previously taken five-fors in his first two ODIs.
Two showers interrupted India's innings, reducing the match to 47 overs aside (Bangladesh's target was minimally adjusted to 200). Rohit Sharma fell to the second ball of the game - Mustafizur's first wicket - but Dhawan and Kohli (23) repaired the damage in a stand of 74. Later Nasir Hossain removed both; then, after Dhoni and Suresh Raina had lifted the score to 163-4, Mustafizur returned, to mop up with 5-10 from his last 28 balls. Ashwin again bowled well, but consistent batting ensured no slip-ups as Bangladesh clinched their first series victory over India. "This is one of the biggest achievements," said their captain, Mashrafe bin Mortaza. "I think the boys are playing fearless cricket. This is the significant change."
