Mushfiqur heroics steer Bangladesh to record run chase

Mushfiqur heroics

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.
