“You might know this is unique celebration style of our pacer Nazmul Islam Apu. He always does so whenever he grab a wicket. This is the funny snake dance that Mushfiqur showed in the field. We enjoyed it a lot,” Tamim said.

The father of a 35 days son, Mushfiqur celebrated the victory with a sparkling 35 ball unbeaten 72 after arriving at the crease to get 115 runs in 63 deliveries for the team.

Making prudent displays of calculated risk all along the innings, Mushfiqur flicked big shots in first four deliveries of an over and then took singles or doubles in the latter two to keep the strikes.

The masterclass chase is the fourth highest chase in the T20I cricket. Australia topped the list with a 5 wicket win over New Zealand where they chased down 244 runs.

West Indies is the second in list – they successfully overshadowed South Africa’s 232 runs in 2015 to end up with a 4 wicket win.

England is in the third position – the opposition was once again South Africa. In 2016, England eclipsed South Africa’s 230 runs having 2 wickets in hand.
And then it came to Bangladesh, for the 5 wicket victory against Sri Lanka chasing down 214 runs.
