Bangladesh implode to Binny brilliance

Bangladesh

Bangladesh did a wonderful job with the ball in the second ODI against India, reducing the visitors to 105 all out, but then the Tigers were even more abject with the bat, crumbling to their worst ever ODI score of 58 all out.

Bangladesh did a wonderful job with the ball in the second ODI against India, reducing the visitors to 105 all out, but then the Tigers were even more abject with the bat, crumbling to their worst ever ODI score of 58 all out.

Debutant Taskin Ahmed took five wickets for Bangladesh after a rain delay reduced the game to 41 overs per side. India were dire, and fell for 105. Stuart Binny then saved India, taking six wickets for four runs, his country's best ODI figures.

Binny's figures and beat Anil Kumble's 6 for 12 to the best Indian stats. Taskin's five-fer was only his country's second on debut.

Bangladesh won the toss and chose to field first, and this looked to be a great decision as India lost wickets from the get-go. Mashrafe Mortaza got first blood with Ajinkya Rahane's wicket, and then they went off for rain.

Up their return a few hours later, Taskin struck quickly and repeatedly, bagging Robin Uthappa, Ambhati Rayudu and Cheteshwar Pujara. Mortaza and Al-Amin Hossain then broke the monopoly, before the 19-year-old claimed Binny and Amit Mishra to complete his five-fer.

India's top score was the 27 Suresh Raina made, and he was amusingly given the award for the 'fastest fifty' after the game as no-one had time to change the title, given the lack of half century in the match.

Bangladesh were demolished in less than 18 overs, chasing 106 as Duckworth-Lewis made no change to the target. Mohit Sharma triggered the demolition by removing the openers, and from there Binny ran through the order.

The Tigers were on 44 for two at one point, so they lost their final eight wickets for just 14 runs, and thus fell to their lowest ever ODI score, and went two-nil down in the series against a second-string India.

<b>India:</b> Ajinkya Rahane, Robin Uthappa, Cheteshwar Pujara, Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu, Wriddhiman Saha, Stuart Binny, Akshar Patel, Amit Mishra, Umesh Yadav, Mohit Sharma.
