Overconfident India received a much deserved reality check as Bangladesh smashed MS Dhoni’s men by 6 wickets (DL method) in the second ODI at Mirpur to claim the 3-match ODI series with one match to go.
MS Dhoni decided to bat first and India got a decent start with Shikhar Dhawan (53) and Virat Kohli (23) adding 74 runs for the 2 nd wicket. But part-timer Nasir Hossain (2/33) removed both the set batsmen.
Mustafizur Rahman, who took a fifer in the previous match, once again delivered the sucker-punch, taking 6/43 and dismissing the overrated batting line-up for only 200.
The hosts, in reply, were aggressive from the start and Shakib al Hasan (51*) played an anchor-role to guide Bangladesh to their first-ever series win over India.
