Debutant Taskin Ahmed was the star for the hosts in the second One-Day International (ODI) between India and Bangladesh at Dhaka. The 19-year-old snared five wickets for just 22 runs in his maiden appearance in ODIs to cripple India completely. India were in trouble of being bowled out for less than 100 for the first time against Bangladesh, but a few late strikes from Umesh Yadav helped avert that embarrassment as India managed to get to 105.

Mashrafe Mortaza and Al-Amin Hossain opened the bowling for Bangladesh, and Mortaza nearly had Robin Uthappa out off the first ball of the match. The batsman survived a very close LBW call, but Ajinkya Rahane was not so lucky, as he was caught on the crease and given out LBW for a golden duck. India found the going very tough for the first few overs.

Taskin Ahmed could bowl just two deliveries on his ODI debut before the heavens opened and the covers came on. In those two balls, though, he bounced Cheteshwar Pujara twice at good pace. The signs were looking ominous for India, who were struggling at 14 for one after 5.2 overs at the rain break.

After the break, Taskin continued bowling with good pace. Uthappa managed to get four off the first delivery of his next over, before taking a couple off the next one. However, Taskin soon had reason to celebrate, as Uthappa top edged a shot to the man at mid-off to give Taskin his maiden ODI wicket.

After dismissing Robin Uthappa, Taskin had new man Ambati Rayudu out LBW as well. At the other end, Cheteshwar Pujara was finding it very tough to score runs as he was languishing on seven from 27 balls and India were crawling at 29 for three after 10 overs.

India were soon gasping at 75 for seven after 18 overs. Mortaza bowled nine overs on the trot, finishing with impressive figures of two for 35. He got rid of Wriddhiman Saha LBW for five before Suresh Raina was run out off the very next ball. Akshar Patel started impressively, hitting a boundary off the first ball he faced in international cricket. He hit another one, but was cleaned up by Al-Amin Hossain for eight soon after.

That brought Stuart Binny and Amit Mishra together, as the two stocky batsmen looked to consolidate things. However, Taskin came back for his second spell and had Binny caught behind for three. Taskin now had four on debut. He soon grabbed his fifth, as he trapped Amit Mishra LBW as well. Taskin entered the record books as he had the best figures by a Bangladeshi bowler on debut. He overtook Sohag Gazi, who had the previous record, having taken four for 29 against West Indies.

India’s last pair of Mohit Sharma and Umesh Yadav put on an invaluable partnership to help India to three-figures. Yadav struck some blows towards the end, but could only delay the inevitable.

Earlier, Bangladesh won the toss and chose to field. Parvez Rasool made way for Stuart Binny in the Indian team, while Bangladesh made two changes with Mithun Ali and Taskin Ahmed making their debuts.

Brief scores:

India 105 in 25.3 overs (Suresh Raina 27, Umesh Yadav 17; Taskin Ahmed 5 for 28, Mashrafe Mortaza 2 for 35) vs Bangladesh.
