Thrilling Finish: Najmul And Mushfiqur Propel Bangladesh To Victory Over Ireland In 2nd ODI

Mushfiqur Rahim completed Bangladesh's chase that Najmul Hossain Shanto had begun in the final over of the enthralling one-day international match against Ireland.

Najmul and Mushfiqur led Bangladesh to a nail-biting victory over Ireland

Are you wondering about Mushfiqur Rahim's latest news? Due to rain, the game against Ireland was shortened to 45 overs per team, and Harry Tector's 140 helped Ireland achieve a 319-6 total.

Najmul's 117 set the tone for Bangladesh's reply, and wicketkeeper Mushfiqur Rahim smashed a boundary with four runs needed off the final ball to give Bangladesh a 1-0 series lead.

Rain prevented play on the opening day of the one-day international game. The final game was on Sunday and was played in Chelmsford.

Shakib Al Hasan scored 26 not out, with five fours and a six, and he was responsible for the early exits of Tamim Iqbal and Liton Das. After his departure, Towhid Hridoy came to the crease, and his partnership with Najmul gave Bangladesh a new life.

Together, they scored 131 runs in 17 overs, putting Bangladesh in command. Hridoy scored 68 runs as Najmul scored his first one-day international century in the same over.

"Hits were solid. I appreciate his good intentions," Najmul stated.

Najmul was run out after facing 93 balls due to a draw shot off Curtis Campsher.

Drama ensued despite Bangladesh needing only 34 runs off 32 balls after Mehidy Hasan Miraz's cameo of 19 runs.

In the penultimate over, Mushfiqur Rahim struck Mark Adair straight to square leg, but the high full toss was ruled a no-ball, saving him from being run out. Mushfiqur won by hitting the extra ball over the wicketkeeper and into the boundary.

The slippery, cold conditions and compact ground disadvantaged the bowlers, but the Ireland openers were promptly dismissed.

Captain Andrew Balbirnie backed Tector up as he took command. Four balls, three sixes. Irish morale was boosted when Taijul Islam mentioned Tector's fifty off 54 balls.

George Dockrell joined Tector in a combative century stand after Balbirnie departed for 42 in a stand of 98. It took Tector 93 balls to get to his fourth ODI century. Tector was bowled after hitting his record-breaking 10th six for Ireland in an ODI.

Dockrell's score of 74 was the highest by an Irish player without a loss.

"We did well, but not well enough," Balbirnie said.

Mushfiqur Rahim's Debut

Mushfiqur Rahim's debut was in his late teens; he debuted for Bangladesh against England at Lord's on May 26, 2005. Given the presence of Khaled Mashud as the previous wicketkeeper, he was picked as a specialist batsman. He racked up 19 runs in his first batting round, but an ankle ailment forced him to sit out the rest of the series.

During the first Mushfiqur Rahim ODI appearance in Harare on August 6, 2006, he made 50 runs against Zimbabwe. His solid play with the bat and behind the wickets established him as a permanent squad member.

In November of that year, Mushfiqur Rahim debuted for his country in a Twenty20 international match against Zimbabwe in Sheikh Abu Naser Stadium.

Mushfiqur Rahim has scored more runs than any other Bangladeshi player in Test matches. In the history of Test cricket, he is the only wicketkeeper-batsman to record two centuries. In addition, he has three Test double-centuries, making him the only player from Bangladesh to do so.
