India pulled off a stunning win over Bangladesh in the second One-Day International (ODI) at Mirpur on June 17. After being dismissed for only 105, India bowled Bangladesh out for a paltry 58. In such a match, it’s the bowlers who would have better performances. Shrikant Shankar reviews each Indian player’s contribution in the second ODI.

While handing out report cards, one has to take into consideration that this was a seamer-friendly pitch and the overcast conditions would cause problems to the best of batsmen. Looking at the result with only 163 runs being scored in total, the ratings would be on a relative basis.

India — According to batting order

Robin Uthappa – 5/10

Robin Uthappa played well despite the difficult conditions in the second One-Day International (ODI) between India and Bangladesh at Mirpur on June 17, 2014. He scored 14 off 24 deliveries. He managed to get two fours as well. He was dismissed by debutant Taskin Ahmed.

Ajinkya Rahane – 2/10

Ajinkya Rahane got out for a first-ball duck. He was out LBW to Mashrafe Mortaza on the second ball of the match. He was excellent on the field as India managed to defend the lowest total in ODI history. Hence, he gets an extra point.

Cheteshwar Pujara – 5/10

On a pitch like the one at Mirpur on Tuesday, it is a batsman like Cheteshwar Pujara, who can play better than the others. While he did get into double figures and score 11 runs, Pujara would have been disappointed to get out LBW to an incoming delivery.

Ambati Rayudu – 2/10

Ambati Rayudu was dismissed for one off seven deliveries by Taskin. He was caught plumb in front of the wickets  to a swinging delivery. Rayudu then took two attempts to complete the catch of Mahmudullah during Bangladesh’s innings.

Suresh Raina – 7/10

India’s captain top-scored in the match with 27 runs off 23 deliveries. Looking at the batsmen falling quickly, Suresh Raina decided to attack the bowlers. He struck three fours. Raina got run out in the 17th over. Those 27 runs were gold dust for India in the end. He then rotated his bowlers very well as they bundled Bangladesh out for only 58.

Wriddhiman Saha – 5/10

Wriddhiman Saha only scored five runs with the bat. But he was brilliant behind the wickets as he took four crucial catches.

Stuart Binny – 9/10

What can one say about Stuart Binny after such a splendid performance with the ball? He only scored three runs with the bat, but entered ODI record books with his bowling effort. After India were bowled out for only 105, a miracle was needed as victory seemed distant. But Binny produced India’s best individual bowling figures in ODIs and the ninth best overall to help India win by 47 runs via Duckworth-Lewis method. He took six wickets for only four runs in 4.4 overs with two maidens. The pitch was in favour of swing bowling and  Binny made the full use of it.

Akshar Patel – 3/10

The left-arm spinner did not get a chance to bowl, but did bat for five deliveries. In those deliveries, Akshar Patel hit two fours before getting out for eight runs. He did take two important catches for India.

Amit Mishra – 2/10

Amit Mishra scored four runs off 16 deliveries. He too did not get a chance to bowl his leg-spin.

Mohit Sharma – 8/10

Mohit Sharma may well be forgotten down the years despite his contributions in India’s record-breaking win. That is mainly due to Binny’s exceptional bowling figures. But Mohit started off the good work by taking early wickets. He finished with figures of four for 22 in only eight overs with two maidens. While Binny destroyed the lower-order, it was Mohit who sent the top-order packing.

Umesh Yadav – 5/10

It is surprising that Umesh Yadav was expensive on a seaming wicket. His figures would be expensive even for a high-scoring match. Umesh gave away 32 runs in only five overs at economy-rate of 6.40. But oddly enough, he was India’s second-highest run-scorer in the match. Umesh hammered two fours and a six in an innings of 17 off only 13 deliveries. Considering the conditions, it was a great effort for a No 11 batsman.
