Stuart Binny created history by taking six wickets for just four runs in 4.4 overs to help bundle Bangladesh out for just 58 in the second One-Day International (ODI) between India and Bangladesh at Dhaka. India won by 47 runs in a match that saw merely 163 runs being scored.

Mohit Sharma struck early, getting rid of Tamim Iqbal off the second delivery off the innings to put Bangladesh on the back foot early on. Mohit was hit for a four first ball, but got his revenge immediately. He got rid of Anamul Haque, caught at point, soon after. Umesh Yadav continued, bowling quick but straying on the leg stump a little too often. The pair helped India reduce Bangladesh to 19 for two after five overs.

The opening bowlers Mohit and Yadav kept things tight and got good movement off the pitch to keep the Bangladeshi batsmen quiet. Yadav especially was getting the ball to move at good pace. Mohit continued his good IPL form, and was economical. Mohit had impressive figures of two for 13 after five overs. The batsmen, Rahim and Mithun, were circumspect initially, but opened up once they got set. Mithun Ali struck five boundaries, and Mushfiqur one as Bangladesh got to 39 for two after 10 overs.

That is when Stuart Binny turned the game on its head. He was rewarded for some tight bowling as he bowled two consecutive maiden overs, the second of which also saw the back of Mushfiqur Rahim, caught behind by Wriddhiman Saha. Binny then came back to bowl the 13th over of the innings, and struck twice in two balls, getting rid of first Mithun Ali for a well-composed 26 and then Mahmudullah for a golden duck.

In the next over, Mohit struck twice as well, accounting for Shakib al Hasan and Ziaur Rahman as Bangladesh sunk further. Binny then continued the remarkable Bangladesh implosion by getting Mortaza to edge one to Saha. By this time, Bangladesh were 56 for eight with both Binny and Mohit having taken four wickets each.

Nasir Hossain was the only hope for Bangladesh, and along with debutant Taskin Ali steadied the ship somewhat. However, Stuart Binny soon ended the resistance, getting Nasir bowled off an inside edge to complete an unbelievable five-wicket haul. He then got Al-Amin Hossain bowled to finish with mind-numbing figures of six for four.

Earlier, 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.

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.

Taskin soon 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. In the end, it was a match dominated by the new players.

Brief scores:

India 105 in 25.3 overs (Suresh Raina 27, Umesh Yadav 17; Taskin Ahmed 5 for 28, Mashrafe Mortaza 2 for 35) beat Bangladesh 58 in 17.4 overs (Mithun Ali 26; Stuart Binny 6 for 4, Mohit Sharma 4 for 22) by 47 runs.

Man of the Match: Stuart Binny
