Bangladesh may have been knocked out of the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 after losing their semifinal clash against the eventual tournament runners-up India, but in that match Bangladesh made a new history as well. [বাংলায় পড়ুনঃ ওয়ানডে ক্রিকেটে নতুন রেকর্ড বাংলাদেশের]
At Edgbaston in Birmingham, Bangladesh lost the toss in that match and came to bat first. Riding on Tamim Iqbal and Mushfiqur Rahim’s half centuries, the Tigers posted a moderate total of 264 runs on the board.
But with the ball in hand, Bangladeshi bowlers couldn’t pose any threat for the Indian top-order batsmen, as Team India sailed to victory with the loss of just one wicket. India won the match by 9 wickets in just 40.1 overs.
Still, the Bangladeshi bowlers, despite their non-fruitful effort with the ball in hand apart from the Shikhar Dhawan wicket, made a great record.
Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Bin Mortaza used 8 bowlers in that match, but surprisingly none of them conceded a single extra, no no-balls or wide balls at all.
The record was previously held by the United Arab Emirates. Earlier this year in a match against Scotland, they didn’t concede any extra in the 229-run innings.
However, the record in Test cricket still belongs to India. In a match against in Lahore during the 1954-55 season, Pakistan scored 328 runs in their first innings. But the Indian bowlers gave away no extra runs in that innings.
