New Delhi: Bangladesh has registered a historic ODI series win against India. And  it was Mustafizur Rahman's super display of incisive fast bowling that queered the pitch for Indian batsmen in this series.  

Team India's short tour of Bangladesh  was seen by many as a dull and drab event asTeam India, semi finalist in the World Cup 2105,  were considered to be clear favorites. Bangla Tigers were looked upon as underdogs in this series.

However few would have anticipated that the three match One Day International (ODI) series would spring up such a surprise after the rain marred only Test match. The beauty of the game of Cricket is that it brings hitherto unknown playerss to limelight all of a sudden.  

The biggest find of the bilateral ODI series between India and Bangladesh is the lanky 19 year old pace bowler Mustafizur Rahman. He became only the second bowler after Brian Vitori to take five wickets in the first two matches of ODI that he played.
