Top 3 ODI bowling performances by an Indian bowlers against Bangladesh

Team India will travel to Bangladesh for a multi-format series less than a week after finishing their white-ball tour of New Zealand.
In a three-match ODI World Cup Super League series and a two-game ICC World Test Championship rubber, the two Asian teams will clash.

The first two one-day internationals are scheduled to take place on Sunday, December 4, and Wednesday, December 10 at the Sher-E-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Dhaka. The third and last game will be played at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Arena on December 10.

After being rested for the New Zealand tour, regular stars like Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and KL Rahul will be brought back into the starting XI.

Bangladesh’s assigned captain Tamim Iqbal, in the meantime, experienced a physical issue during a training meeting and won’t contend in the ODI series, managing an extreme catastrophe for the hosts. In Tamim’s nonappearance, Litton Das will commander Bangladesh interestingly.

Even the reliable pacer Taskin Ahmed will not play in the first one-day international.
We look back on three memorable bowling performances by the Men in Blue against their Asian rivals as Team India and Bangladesh prepares to compete in an ODI series for the first time in more than seven years.

#3 Ravindra Jadeja at the 2018 Asia Cup in Dubai with a 4/29 score

After a hiatus of nearly 14 months, Ravindra Jadeja returned to white-ball cricket with a bang when he took a fantastic 4/29 score against Bangladesh in a Super Four match.

Jadeja jumped at the chance to play in place of Hardik Pandya, who had been injured, with both hands.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah, who chose to bowl first, dismissed the Bangladeshi openers in the first 5.1 overs to set the tone.

In the final over of the mandatory powerplay, Jadeja followed. He got off to the worst possible start against Shakib Al Hasan, as the left-arm spinner scored 11 runs on his first three balls. However, on the very next ball, he escaped Shakib with a slower ball and exacted his vengeance. He completely dismantled the Bangla Tigers’ batting order from that point on.

Jadeja quickly bowled out Mohammad Mithun and Mushfiqur Rahim, then returned to bowl out Mosaddek Hossain to earn a four-wicket haul.

India eventually prevailed over Bangladesh with seven wickets and 82 balls remaining thanks to his efforts, who were bowled out for 173 runs.

#2 5/23 – Javagal Srinath in a 1998 tri-series match in Dhaka

The only Indian pacer to record three five-wicket hauls in one-day internationals, Javagal Srinath put on one of his best bowling performances against Bangladesh in the first match of the 1998 tri-series.

The Bangladeshi batsmen chose to bat first, but they were unable to respond to Srinath’s precise line and length as wickets fell in a flurry.
Srinath and Debashish Mohanty, his new ball partner, rocked the hosts from the start, putting them at 22 for 4 after 12.3 overs.

Bangladesh got back on track thanks to a partnership of 109 runs between Anamul Islam (69*) and Khaled Mahmud (47). However, the speedster from Karnataka returned to Bangladesh to complete his excellent fifer by claiming three more scalps.

India chased down the target with a superb 125-run partnership between Mohammad Azharuddin (84) and Sachin Tendulkar (54), limiting Bangladesh to 190 runs.

#1 6/4 – Stuart Binny’s defeat of the Bangla Tigers in their own backyard

Stuart Binny in Dhaka in 2014 may have been the most significant moment in the rivalry between India and Bangladesh.

The visitors’ backs were against the wall when they were bowled out for just 105 in the first ODI of the Men in Blue’s tour of Bangladesh. India needed a sort of miracle to turn the game in their favor with Bangladesh at 44-2 and only needing 62 more runs.

In the ninth over, substitute captain Suresh Raina gave Stuart Binny the ball. He left the Bangladesh dressing room and stunned fans after 28 deliveries. The right-arm seamer used the available swing to break Mushfiqur Rahim’s (11) and Mohammad Mithun’s (26) partnership before dismissing Mahmudullah for a golden duck.

In just six balls, Binny took three more wickets and wrecked the Bangladeshi batsmen. Binny bowled Bangladesh out for 56 runs, the lowest Bangladesh had ever scored in an ODI, and the visitors won the match by 47 runs (D/L method).

Not only is Binny’s spell of 6/4 the best in an ODI between India and Bangladesh, but he also holds the record for the best bowling figures by an Indian in ODIs.
