Bangladesh is ahead in the series by defeating India. The cricket world saw the fighting spirit of the Tigers in Mirpur yesterday. With the determination of the two friends, Bangladesh won the victory.
Mehedi Hasan Miraz remembered one of Mustafiz’s words on the wicket. Later, in the 10th wicket, the two together dragged the team to the final victory.
Miraz was at one end and Mustafiz came out to bat at number 11 on the other end. Bangladesh still needs 51 runs.
Chasing 187, Bangladesh was in great danger. When the last recognized batsman Afif Hossain departed, the hosts needed 53 runs. Despite Ebadat Hossain and Hasan Mahmud returning for zero runs, Miraz’s faith did not go away. With 24 balls and one wicket in hand, Bangladesh defeated India in the first ODI.
The winning boundary came from his bat. The man-of-the-match all-rounder later said, “Maybe people will call me crazy. But I really believed we could win. I just focused on winning the game. I’ve told myself over and over again that I can. I thought I would score 15 with Ebadat, 20 with Hasan Mahmud, and the remaining 15-20 with Mustafiz. But losing two quick wickets, I had to take risks. I am confident in Mustafiz’s words. He said to me, “Don’t worry. I won’t get out. ’
Both of them put on a stunning partnership of 51 runs for the last wicket to give Bangladesh a 1-0 lead in the three-match ODI series.
