In the second One-Day International (ODI) played between Bangladesh and India at Mirpur, India were bowled out for just 105. It meant that it was the lowest total amassed by India on the board against Bangladesh in ODIs. The previous lowest total by Indian team against Bangladesh was during the ICC World Cup 2007 round-robin phase when they were bowled out for just 191 runs on the board. India also went onto lose that game to Bangladesh.
In the second ODI played at Mirpur, India lost their way to some incisive bowling by Taskin Ahmed, the fast bowler. Taskin, making his ODI debut went onto take five crucial wickets to leave India in tatters. Actually, India won the first ODI of the series by seven wickets on the basis of Duckworth Lewis (D/L) Method.
For Indian setup, only Robin Uthappa, Cheteshwar Pujara and Suresh Raina were able to cross double figures, as none of the Indian batsmen were able to handle Taskin’s pace. The pacer was well supported by others like Mashrafe Mortaza and Al-Amin Hossain. It was a team effort by Bangladesh that helped them to bowl out India for such a low score on the board.
