Ind vs Ban: Mustafizur takes six-for to shoot India out for 200

PTI 21 Jun 2015, 20:21:19 PM IST

Mirpur: Indian batsmen once again struggled against young left-arm pacer Mustafizur Rahaman as his six for 43 enabled Bangladesh to skittle out the two-time World Champions for a paltry 200 in 45 overs in a rain-affected second one day international cricket match, here today.

Due to heavy downpour, the match has been reduced to 47 overs per side.The 19-year-old seamer from remore Satkhira village became only the second bowler in ODI history to record two five-wicket hauls in his first two matches.

Zimbabwe left-arm pacer Brian Vitori is the only other bowler to get two fifers in as many ODIs first up.

Electing to bat in a must-win encounter of the three-match series, India kept losing wickets as Bangladesh bowlers once again showed their might at the Shere Bangla National Stadium.

Five Indian batsmen failed to reach double figures with three left without troubling the scorers including Ambati Rayudu, who was a surprise replacement of Ajinkya Rahane.

The Indian opener though was guilty of playing a loose shot away from his body and sliced it to point.

Opener Shikhar Dhawan (53) made an useful contribution while skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni (47, 75 balls) looked horribly out of touch as he never could force the pace of the innings.

The only significant stand of the Indian innings was between Dhawan and Virat Kohli (23) who added 74 for the 2nd wicket.

It was Kohli broke lose in the ninth over to bring India's fifty with a six at long on.
A brief rain interruption did not deter the batsmen from going for their runs but Nasir trapped Kohli leg before in the 13th over to bring alive the capacity crowd at Shere Bangla National Stadium.

Kohli's poor form has been of some concern as he has got one century in the last 14 games with no score in excess of 50 in other games.
