‘India Below Par’: Twitter Lauds Bangladesh for Historic T20I Win

Mushfiqur Rahim hit an undefeated 60 off 43 balls as Bangladesh beat India in the Twenty20 cricket format for the first-ever time on Sunday, 3 November.

The Tigers had not won in their previous eight T20 meetings with India.

Chasing 149 to win, Rahim played some exquisite strokes as he scored a fourth T20 half-century to help his team reach 154-3 with three balls to spare in the series opener at Delhi.

Rahim smacked eight fours and a six, adding 60 runs for the third wicket with Soumya Sarkar (39) to guide the chase after India, which was put into bat, reached 148-6.

BCCI President Sourav Ganguly thanked both the sides for playing the match in the smog-hit national capital. “Thank u to both the teams to play this game under tuff conditions.. well done Bangladesh,” he wrote.
