Mushfiqur heroics steer Bangladesh to record run chase
It was a memorable Saturday night for every Bangladeshi out there at Colombo and back in Bangladesh. A jam-packed stadium buzzing and cheering for Sri Lanka and chasing 200 Plus total. You can’t get better than this when Bangladesh went closer to chase and eventually were able to chase it down and their warrior Mushfiqur Rahim with his new celebration style of Cobra Dance at final moments. Mushfiqur heroics gave them a great confident booster.
A run-feast on Saturday night witnessed a great fight back of Bangladeshi team and finally they won their first game at Nidahas Trophy after loosing from India very badly. It was definitely a mood lifter for them to stay alive in this tri-series.
Player of The Match: Mushfiqur Rahim (BAN)
Sri Lanka 214/6 in 20 overs (Kusal Perera 74, Kusal Mendis 57; Mustafizur Rahman 3-48, Mahmudullah 2-15)
Bangladesh 215/5 in 19.4 overs (Mushfiqur Rahim 72*Tamim Iqbal 47; Nuwan Pradeep 2-47, Thisara Perera 1-36)
Result: Bangladesh won by 5 wickets
