Dhaka, June 17, 2014: A dream debut for 19-year-old fast bowler Taskin Ahmed was undone by Bangladesh batsmen who failed to chase a paltry total of 105 after Stuart Binny’s record-breaking spell of 6 for 4 sparked a collapse that kept Bangladesh from winning their first ODI of 2014. In the end, the hosts were bowled out for an embarrassing 58, conceding the match by 47 runs and the three-match series 2-0.
Stuart Binny, who recorded the best ever figures by an Indian in ODIs, came on to bowl when Bangladesh were 44/2 and looked settled, but from that point on, Binny and Mohit Sharma combined to pack up the hosts in 17.4 overs after rain during India’s innings reduced the match to a 41-overs-a-side affair.
Mohit took 4 for 22 as he and Binny took all 10 Bangladesh wickets to fall.
Earlier, a shambolic India were bowled out for their lowest ODI total against Bangladesh after debutant medium-pacer Taskin ripped through the visiting line-up with an impressive five-wicket haul.
The Indians were skittled out for 105 runs in 25.3 overs, much less than their previous low of 191 in Port of Spain during the 2007 World Cup.
