Bangladesh could not stop a weakened India team winning the first One-Day International (ODI) to at Mirpur on June 15. They suffered a seven-wicket loss via the Duckworth-Lewis method in a rain-affected match. But Bangladesh did have some players who made them proud even in defeat. Shrikant Shankar analysed each player’s contribution and writes how they did on a scale of one to 10.

Bangladesh – According to batting order

Tamim Iqbal – 1/10

How does one get a rating of 1 out of 10? The answer is if he gets out for a duck after facing 11 deliveries. That is exactly what Tamim Iqbal did against India in the first One-Day International (ODI) at Shere Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur on June 15. He was rather unluckily given out caught behind off Umesh Yadav as replays showed that Tamim did not get a edge.

Anamul Haque – 7/10

The Bangladesh opener Anamul Haque scored 44 runs off 60 deliveries with seven fours. He put the team in a better position after they had lost two quick wickets.

Mominul Haque – 2/10

Mominul Haque had a poor match as he scored only six runs off 17 deliveries before being dismissed by Umesh. He played away from the body to an away-moving delivery with hardly any feet movement. Mominul edged the ball to wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha.

Mushfiqur Rahim – 8/10

The Bangladesh captain top-scored for his team with a quick-fire 59 off 63 deliveries. He struck three fours and three sixes in his innings. Mushfiqur Rahim first was involved in a 52-run partnership with Anamul and then a 47-run stand with Shakib Al Hasan. The half-century was his 15th in ODIs.

Shakib Al Hasan – 9/10

Shakib Al Hasan proved he is Bangladesh’s best player once again. He scored 52 runs off 58 deliveries with four fours and one six. He struck a partnership of 65 runs with Mahmudullah for the fifth wicket. Shakib helped Bangladesh post a competitive total of 272 for nine in their 50 overs. He then took two wickets of Robin Uthappa and Cheteshwar Pujara to give India a relative scare. A win was the only thing missing for Shakib from the match.

Mahmudullah – 7/10

Mahmudullah scored 41 runs off 44 deliveries with six fours. After his partnership with Shakib, Mahmudullah added 30 runs with Nasir Hossain for the sixth wicket. He got bowled by a straighter delivery from Amit Mishra.

Nasir Hossain – 5/10

He scored a 20-ball 22 lower down the order to help Bangladesh post their competitive total. Nasir Hossain’s innings included four fours. He mistimed a slog-sweep to Ajinkya Rahane at long-off.

Ziaur Rahman – 3/10

The Bangladesh lower-order batsman had a game to forget. He got out for two runs and then gave away nine runs in his only over. Ziaur Rahman does get an extra point with an incredible catch to dismiss Rahane at short third-man.

Mashrafe Mortaza – 6/10

Mashrafe Mortaza blitzed a 10-ball 18 with two fours and one six to propel Bangladesh towards the end of their innings. He then dismissed Rahane with a slower delivery.

Abdur Razzak – 5/10

Like Mortaza, Abdur Razzak also added quick runs down the order. He scored 16 runs off 12 deliveries with two fours and remained not out. But Abdur was expensive giving away 34 runs in only five overs.

Al-Amin Hossain – 3/10

The Bangladesh pacer only faced two deliveries and remained unbeaten on one. Al-Amin Hossain then conceded 32 runs without taking a wicket in five overs.
