It’s for this “history” that Bangladesh will never “forget” James Anderson!

In the 49th over of the game at the Adelaide Oval, England needed 16 to win from nine balls. On strike was England’s James Anderson, the last wicket for his side and he was facing an in-form Rubel Hossain, who was steaming in. England’s hopes for a World Cup quarterfinal qualification rested on Anderson’s shoulders, but the ace bowler was cleaned up by a Rubel yorker.

That was Rubel’s fourth wicket and Bangladesh had qualified to the World Cup knockout stage for the very first time. A history was made on March 9, 2015 — a day no Bangladesh cricket fan will ever forget.

Here’s Rubel’s inspiring spell that saw the wickets of Ian Bell, Eoin Morgan, Stuart Broad and James Anderson.

On Thursday, the official Twitter account of Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) mentioned Anderson’s official account and tweeted the following.

Anderson, who has torrid memories of that day, instantly replied:

BCB then let the England’s swing bowler know that how he is a part of their history and they will never “forget” him.
