Mustafizur scalps six to give Bangladesh 200-run target against India

Mirpur (Bangladesh), June 21 (ANI): Rookie fast bowler Mustafizur Rahman claimed career-best figures of six for 43 as Bangladesh bundled out India for 200 in the second ODI of the three-match series at Shere Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur on Sunday.

The tourists were reeling at 196-8 when rain had interrupted play. However, they could only add four more runs to their total after the resumption of play in a rain-curtailed 47-overs-a-side game.

While Mustafizur Rahman replicated his debut heroics, Rubel Hossain and Nasir Hossain claimed two wickets each to expose frailties of India’s batting line-up.

Opener Shikhar Dhawan scored 53 while captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni made 47 before he fell prey to Mustafizur’s delivery.

While Rohit Sharma and Ambati Rayadu trudged back to the pavilion for their respective ducks, Virat Kohli and Suresh Raina were dismissed for 23 and 34 respectively.

Ravindra Jadeja was the other notable mention as he made 19 before being dismissed by Mustafizur.

India face a must-win situation today after being comprehensively defeated by the hosts in the first ODI by 79 runs at the same venue. (ANI)
