Miraz-Mahmudullah’s 148-run stand laid the foundation for Bangladesh’s Win
Batting first, Bangladesh got off to a disastrous start as they lost their opener Anamul (0) in the first over reducing Bangladesh to 11-1 in just 2 overs. Wickets kept falling like a pack of cards for Bangladesh. Liton Das (7), Shanto (21), Shakib (8), (12), Afif Hossain (0) all failed miserably to hit the straps & were reduced fro 66 for 3 to 69 for 6. At that moment it seemed like Bangladesh couldn’t be able to post a target above 150 runs. However, then happened the unexpected as Mahmudullah joined hands with Mehidy hasan Miraz to rebuilt Bangladesh’s innings.
The duo smashed Indian bolwers all across the mark & brought up a rewrading 148-run stand for the sevent wicket. Mahmudullah played a scintillating knock of 77 runs off 96 balls with seven fours. While Miraz played a roile of an aggressor by smashing a rewarding ton. He registered the much needed century on the last ball of their innings & stayed unbeaten at 100 off 83 balls in an innings embellished with eight fours & four sixes. The duo guided Bangladesh to a decent total of 271-7 in allotted 50 overs. For India the best bowlers were Washington Sundar (3-37) & Umran Malik (3-37) who returned with three scalps each.

Shreyas-Rohit’s valorous knocks went in vain as India couldn’t save the series
In reply, India too got off to a humiliating start as they lost early wickets & were struggling at 39-3 in 10 overs. Virat Kohli (5), Shikhar Dhawan (8), Washington Sundar (11) all got dismissed early. Then came KL Rahul & Shreyas Iyer for India’s rescue & the duo stitched a brief 26 run stand before KL Rahul got dismissed for 14 runs in the 19th over. But Shreyas Iyer was going strong at the other end as he stitched 107 run stand for the fifth wicket with Axar Patel to remove India from a state of bother. Shreyas Iyer scored 82 runs off 102 balls with six fours & three sixes. Axar too supported him by amassing 56 runs off 56 balls with two fours & three sixes.

He smashed six sixes & three fours to take india near a win. However his efforst went in vain as India fell short of five runs & ended their innings at 266-5.
