Bangladesh created history as they beat India by 6 wickets in the second ODI at Mirpur and with that, they took an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three match ODI series. Once again Mustafizur Rahman is the star for the hosts as he bettered his debut performance by ending his spell with six wickets, which was key in dismissing India for just 200. Chasing 200 to victory courtesy Duckworth-Lewis adjustment, Bangladeshi batsmen had no difficulties in doing so. With this win, Bangladesh also qualified for the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy. Here are some of the tweets regarding the match:
1- First time Bangladesh has defeated India in two back-to-back matches.
