Mehidy fires Tigers to ODI series win over India

Mehidy Hasan Miraz has pulled off another stunning all-round display to guide the Tigers to a home series win over India with a 5-run victory in the second match.

Rohit Sharma, not out at 51 off 24, hit two boundaries and one six in the final over of Mustafizur Rahman at Mirpur Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Dhaka on Wednesday, but failed to take six runs off the last ball for a win, reports bdnews24.com.

Mehidy, Bangladesh's hero of the first ODI, took two wickets after hitting his first ODI century off just 83 balls to pull the Tigers out of the pits of 69 for 6 and post a challenging 271 for 7.

He stitched a record seventh-wicket stand of 148 with Mahmudullah, who made 77, to put the pressure back on India.

Despite regular fall of wickets, the tourists were right in the chase with Shreyas Iyer’s 82 off 102 and Axer Patel’s 56 off 56. But the wily Mustafizur made sure India fall short of the target.
