The tour of ndia in Bangladesh was not as successful in the way Rohit Sharma’s squad had hoped. After losing the opening one-day international by just a small margin of one wicket and a wicket, the Indian team travelled to Mirpur in time for their second game. Prior to the beginning of the second game, there was a tweet from the International Cricket Council (ICC) tweeted about the second ODI however, they misplaced the picture that was of that of the Canada cricket squad. The tweet was removed long afterwards, however the internet users had already captured pictures of the tweet and shared the tweet on social media at that point.

 

India looking to bounce back during the second one-day international began off to a good beginning with the ball when they sent six Bangladesh batters into the the pavilion with a score of 69 runs. But what happened following wasn’t what players would have thought of in their wildest hopes.

Mahmudullah along with Mehidy Miraz created a spectacular partnership of 148 for the 7th wicket Mehidy Hasan Miraz scored an unbeaten century, bringing the total of the team to 271 runs.

 

Miraz made sure to save his best for the 50th ball when Miraz hammered Shardul Thakur for two sixes, including a perfectly timing pickup shot, before reaching the three-figure mark in the last cricket ball.

The Bangladeshi team had to struggle to get the final wicket in the opening game of the series and then ran out of ideas on Wednesday too, after over half the Bangladesh lineup was removed from the dressing room in the 19th over.

Miraz scored most of his runs in the middle of the wicket, as he took advantage of gaps, particularly against spinners. He finished with 8 boundaries, and 4 sixes. Mahmudullah also increased his confidence as the innings was progressing. He was able to take a stunning single-handed catch by K L Rahul to dismiss him , and to end an impressive stand.

After Bangladesh decided to bat Mohammad Siraj (2/73) caused trouble for batters with his delivery options, Umran Malik (2/58) utilized his speed and pace to good effect, and Offie Washington Sundar (3/37) caused them to be uncomfortable due to the additional bounce.
