Mustafizur's second straight five-wicket haul

Mustafizur Picks up 6 wickets

Jannatul Naym Pieal

In his debut in the previous match against the same opponents, he became world’s 10th bowler to take a five-wicket haul in debut. And today with another five-for, Mustafizur Rahman becomes only the second bowler in ODIs to pick up two fifers. The only other bowler who reached this feat earlier was Brian Vitori, the Zimbabwean seamer. Ironically, Vitori had achieved the feat against the team Mustafizur plays for back in 2011.

Bowling 9.5 overs so far, the Satkhira-born pacer gave away 43 runs with an economy rate of 4.37. His spell saw 39 dot balls altogether. And as he so far conceded only 43 runs, it can be said that even if the rain, that stopped the play at the moment, goes away and Mustafizur gets to finish off his 10-over quota, it’s going to be his career-best bowling.

His bowling figure reads : 10-43-0-6

Mustafizur dismissed Rohit Sharma for a two-ball duck in the opening over of the match after India captain MS Dhoni won the toss and opted to take first strike.

After 1/32 in his 5-over first spell, Mustafizur returned to send back Suresh Raina, MS Dhoni, Axar Patel and Ravichandran Ashwin to match the world record.

As in the 1st ODI, here too he had 2 wickets in 2 balls, getting Dhoni and Patel off successive deliveries in the 40th over. Ashwin kept out the hat-trick ball.
