The Indian cricket team is locking horns with the Bangla Tigers in a three-match One-Day International series, and after the culmination of that, both teams will face each other in a two-match Test series. Looking at recent records of Bangladesh on their home soil, it can be said that winning the series in both formats for the Men in Blue won’t be a cakewalk. In 2015, Bangladesh thrashed India 2-1 in a three-game ODI series and showed that beating them on their backyard is not a piece of cake for other teams.
In the last few years, the Bangladesh cricket team has played a lot of ODI cricket against India and has also looked competitive by delivering some impressive shows. In their outings against India in the past few years, the Bangla bowlers have had a huge impact with their performances. In all their triumphs against India in ODIs, the Bangla bowlers have stood tall and shown their best.
On that note, here are some of the best bowling spells from Bangladesh bowlers against India
5. Shakib Al Hasan 5/36, 2022 ODI series
In December 2022, India toured Bangladesh for three ODIs and two Tests. In the absence of regular skipper Tamim Iqbal, Litton Das was leading the team and winning the toss at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium, he invited the Men in Blue to bat first in the first ODI.
To give Bangladesh a flying start, Mehidy Hasan, in the sixth over, dismissed Shikhar Dhawan for 7(17). Capitalising on the good start, Shakib Al Hasan also built pressure on India by removing two crucial batters Rohit Sharma (27 off 31) and Virat Kohli (9 off 15). After sending India's top-order packing, Bangladesh were riding high in the game. On the last delivery of the 20th over, Ebadot Hossain dismissed Iyer, who tried to bring India back into the game by building a steady partnership with KL Rahul.
After Iyer’s dismissal, Shakib adopted an agressive approach and picked up the wickets of Washington Sundar, Shardul Thakur, and Deepak Chahar. The veteran ended his spell by registering 5/36 in ten overs, which helped Bangladesh to restrict India for mere 186 in 41.2 overs and later win the game by one wicket, in what turned out to be a low-scoring thriller.
