India thrashed Bangladesh by 47 runs in the second One-Day International (ODI) at the Shere Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka on Tuesday. The match witnessed the lowest ODI aggregate being registered wherein all 20 wickets fell. Devarchit Varma examines the Bangladeshi players’ performances in the second ODI.

It was certainly a clinical performance with the ball by India, with all-rounder Stuart Binny leading from the front. The Indians flopped with the bat, but the way they bounced back to snatch an unlikely win from Bangladesh deserves all the accolades that came their way. However, the hosts did extremely well to challenge India in the first innings, and came very close to levelling the series.

Bangladesh – According to batting order

Tamim Iqbal – 1/10

The explosive opener continues to flop as he was out off the second ball he faced. Tamim started off well with a boundary off Mohit Sharma in the first over but was caught behind the wickets by Wriddhiman Saha. The ball angled across him, and while attempting to hit it through the covers Tamim got an edge.

Anamul Haque – 1/10

The failure of the Bangladeshi openers was a huge factor in the way their innings panned out. Both Tamim Iqbal and Anamul let go the opportunity of finding good form as openers, and their dismissal in quick succession sent panic waves in the Bangladeshi dressing room. Anamul was struggling by all means, as he fell for a duck off eight balls.

Mithun Ali – 6/10

The only Bangladeshi batsman who stood up against the Indians was Mithun Ali. He hit five boundaries – starting with two off Umesh Yadav in the third over of the innings. But the fall of wickets at the other end put pressure on him and he became the second victim of Stuart Binny, in the 14th over. Mithun scored 26 off 39 balls, and was the top-scorer for the hosts in the match.

Mushfiqur Rahim – 4/10

The Bangladeshi captain is fast becoming the backbone of his side, but Mushfiqur Rahim’s failure with the bat meant there were not many who they could look up to in troubled times. Rahim fell to Binny in the 12th over, and his dismissal certainly pegged back the hosts and ripped them off all the advantage that they had gained. It was his dismissal that started the Bangladesh landslide. Rahim scored 11 off 24 balls with two fours.

Shakib Al Hasan – 3/10

Shakib claimed only one wicket in the match, of Yadav, and failed to steady the ship with the bat when they needed him most. The left-handed batsman survived only eight balls at the crease, and scored four runs off them. Shakib was caught behind the wickets by Wriddhiman Saha off Mohit Sharma. The ball rose more than expected, angled across, brushed the shoulder of Shakib’s bat and went into the ‘keeper’s gloves.

Mahmudullah – 1/10

The Bangladeshi batsman was out first ball off Binny. There was not much movement but the batsman went for his stroke but ended up hitting it in the air. Ambati Rayudu, despite the fumble, managed to take the catch. Mahmudullah was out the very next ball after Mithun Ali’s dismissal.

Nasir Hossain – 2/10

Hossain took one catch (to dismiss Yadav off Shakib), but failed with the bat. Bangladesh desperately needed him to drop the anchor, but after a painful stay at the crease that lasted 13 balls and five runs, Hossain was dismissed. He didn’t move his feet enough and was cleaned up by Binny.

Ziaur Rahman – 0/10

If it was possible, Ziaur Rahman would get a negative marking. Merely two deliveries after Shakib’s dismissal, Ziaur — who was yet to score a run — went for a slog against Mohit, and ended up mistiming it to be caught by Akshar Patel in the 15th over of the innings. It was a completely needless and idiotic stroke to play with barely 50 runs needed to win. The only reason he got a 0 and not a negative marking, was because in the first innings, he took a clean catch to get rid of Robin Uthappa.

Mashrafe Mortaza – 8/10

The star Bangladeshi bowler did well to claim the key wickets of Ajinkya Rahane early on, and then trapping Saha at an important junction in the match. He also nearly trapped Robin Uthappa LBW off the first ball of the match, but did not get the decision in his favour. His spell right at the start was nigh unplayable, and he didn’t give away any easy runs. He could not do much for his side with the bat, but his figures of 9-0-35-2 were impressive from the veteran bowler.

Taskin Ahmed – 10/10

Full marks to the 19-year-old who ran through the Indian batting line-up, triggering a collapse that saw the Indians registering their lowest ODI total against Bangladesh. He has a clean action, and bowls at a consistent pace, which is not a regular facet of a subcontinental seamer. Taskin Ahmed was beaming with energy, which could be seen in the way he approached his first international game and creating a record of taking five-for on debut. He returned with the figures of 8-0-28-5.

Al Amin Hossain – 7/10

The Bangladeshi seamer sent down five overs, and claimed the wicket of Patel who had just started to threaten the hosts with couple of boundaries. He too bowled well, as the Indian batsman could hardly score off him till Yadav slogged him a little towards the end. India scored 26 runs off his five overs, but that did not reflect how well he bowled. With the bat he could not do much, being the last man to be dismissed for a two-ball duck off Binny as India celebrated a memorable win.
