Mushfiqur Rahim played a knock of his life scoring 60 off just 43 balls and leading his side to victory in an intense battle. With 22 runs required off the last two overs, Rahim took the charge on Khaleel Ahmed and smashed him for 4 consecutive boundaries in the penultimate over.
Rahim’s brilliance silenced the crowd at Feroz Shah Kotla Delhi. Remember Bangladesh Cricket Team faced a lot of controversies before this series. Their tour of India was in a doubt courtesy turmoil in the Bangladesh Cricket Board. However, the things eventually settled down and Bangladesh decided to carry on the tour as per schedule.
Moreover, Shakib Al Hasan’s ban was another setback for the Bengal tigers. All these controversies did not hamper the morale of the team and they started their tour with an emphatic win in the first T20I and showed the world that they are here to fight despite the ongoing problems.
