Bangladesh set for India ODI series win

Bangladesh moved closer to their first series victory over India by bowling the tourists out for 200 in 45 overs in Sunday’s second one-day international in Dhaka.

The match was reduced to 47 overs after a two-hour rain delay, with Bangladesh set a revised target of 200 under the Duckworth-Lewis system.

Left-arm pacer Mustafizur Rahman took 6-43 to become only the second bowler after Zimbabwe’s Brian Vittorito to claim five wickets in his first two matches.

India again had no answers to dealing with the teen’s lethal offcutter at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium.

Opener Shikhar Dhawan top-scored with 53 while captain MS Dhoni struggled on his way to a valuable 47.

Rubel Hossain had 2-26 and part-time offspinner Nasir Hossain claimed 2-33.

Mustafizur dismissed Rohit Sharma with just the second ball of the innings to leave India 1-0 after Dhoni won the toss and elected to bat.

Virat Kohli (23) shared a 74-run partnership with Dhawan for the second wicket before falling to a Hossain delivery that didn’t run as Kohli expected.

The situation worsened when Dhawan and Ambati Rayudu (0) were dismissed in the space of just one run to leave India reeling at 4-110.

Suresh Raina and Dhoni briefly resisted before Mustafizur nabbed both of them to damage India’s chances of making a big score.

Rain halted the match for two hours with India 8-196 after 43.5 overs. With the match reduced to 47 overs, Bangladesh needed just seven balls to wrap up the innings after the game restarted.
