Mushfiqur Rahim scored an unbeaten half-century as Bangladesh beat India by 7 wickets in the first T20 International to take a 1-0 lead in the three-match series at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi on Sunday.
Mushfiqur Rahim scored 60 runs off 43 balls, including eight boundaries and a six, while captain Mahmudullah was not out on 15 after he hit the winning six for Bangladesh. This is Bangladesh’s first-ever victory over India in the shortest format of the game. Bangladesh’s maiden T20I win against India came in the ninth match.
Zimbabwe is the only other team that took as many matches to beat an opponent (Afghanistan) in the T20I cricket.
“We are all happy as it our first T20I win against India. 140 was a good total and they bowled well, but we managed to get over the line,” Soumya Sarkar, who contributed with 39 runs, said after the match.
