Bangladesh vs India ODI Series Highlights

Bangladesh vs India ODI Series Highlights

India may have won by 77 runs as they played for pride in yesterday’s sensational, power-packed third ODI match but Bangladesh still gets to celebrate for beating India 2-1 in their first-ever ODI series victory against the country.

Though it was a case of pride salvaged as Team India recovered their lost momentum, even as the men in blue celebrated their hard-won victory in the third and final ODI of the series, the host country were smug in their three-match series win; the only consolation for India, they were able to prevent a whitewash victory.

Though Virat Kohli had expressed his reservations in a pre-match interview where he said, “They (Bangladesh) have played some really good cricket and honestly we have been sort of doubtful in our decision making and that shows on the field,” the Indian team were able to redeem themselves somewhat in the eyes of their nation. Bangladesh, which won the toss and opted to bowl were left chasing a target of 318 but had to put up their hands as they were declared all out for 240 in 47 overs. It was Mashrafe from the host team that summed it up, “No one wants to lose any match — much less the way we lost today. The pressure we have at the start of a series rises before the last match. The idea of ‘Banglawash’ is raised after winning one or two matches. We could have played this match more positively.”

Bangladesh skipper Mashrafe Mortaza expressed his enthusiasm and optimism saying that this match was their best ever performance and that his team is capable of doing well anywhere in the world. “If you leave aside the achievement in the World Cup, this is the best. We didn’t win a series against teams ranked one to four by ICC. A win against them (India), I’ll say this is the best. You see, everyone has to struggle abroad. The condition in Australia and New Zealand was not easy for us. But we did well in the World Cup. Every one of us has that confidence. I think this team can play their best anywhere in the world. We can succeed in any condition.” His comments are relevant in the face of the country’s successive ODI wins against Zimbabwe (5-0) and Pakistan (3-0) where they literally steamrolled over the guests.
