Bangladesh are suffering a batting collapse, losing 6 wickets for just 69 runs, in 18 overs while batting first in the second ODI against India at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium on Wednesday (December 07, 2022).
Mohammad Siraj bagged two wickets, while Umran Malik took one and Washington Sundar got the crucial breakthrough by removing Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim, and Afif Hossain who scored a duck.
Anamul Haque Bijoy was the first one to fall, as he was trapped LBW by Mohammad Siraj after facing a series of fuller deliveries, hitting two boundaries and scoring 11 off 9 balls.
Mohammad Siraj scalped the wicket of Bangladesh captain Liton Das with a well-executed good length inswinger, smashing his middle stumps. Liton made 7 runs off 23 balls, failing to get into a rhythm in the middle.
Umran Malik sent Bangladesh into further turmoil as he removed Najmul Hossain Shanto with a 151 kmph fast delivery. Shanto might have anticipated a short delivery, yet it was not to be as he went for a drive to the cover unsuccessfully, losing his off-stump in the process.
Bangladesh had come into the second match of the series looking to win it and take the lead, after narrowly winning the first game against India on December 06, 2022 by one wicket at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium. However, this batting collapse might bring a result that the Bangladeshi fans at Mirpur are not expecting at all.
