Bangladesh vs India 2nd Test: Zaheer Sizzles As India Beat Bangladesh By 10 wickets

By on January 27, 2010

India 544 for 8 dec (Tendulkar 143, Dravid 111 retd hurt, Dhoni 89) and 2 for 0 beat Bangladesh 233 (Mahmudullah 96*, Ishant 4-66, Zaheer 3-62) and 312 (Tamim 151, Junaid 55, Zaheer 7 for 87) by ten wickets…

Zaheer Khan produced his career best spell of seven for 87, which included three wickets in four balls, as India beat Bangladesh by ten wickets on the fourth day of the second and final Test and win the series 2-0.

Bangladesh lost six wickets in 30 overs scoring only 84 in the morning session and were just one run ahead of India at lunch.

Earlier, Shahadat holed out to Amit Mishra at long-on while trying to hoist Harbhajan Singh for a boundary after the drink break, and soon the match turned on its head. From 290/3, Bangladesh lost six wickets with the addition of just 22 runs from 9.3 overs.

Nine balls after Shahadat’s departure, Mohammad Ashraful followed suit. Ojha, who till then looked pedestrian, removed Ashraful with a superb delivery.

Two overs later, captain Shakib Al Hasan showed little responsibility as he was out for a six-ball seven as he holed out to Gautam Gambhir at square leg why trying to clear the boundary off Ojha.

Bangladesh batsmen kept quite for another six overs before Zaheer sent back three batsmen from four balls in the penultimate over to give his side a sniff for early victory.

Zaheer first had Raqibuk Hasan for five as the superb delivery crashed at the stumps after kissing the pads of the batsman who tried to leave it alone.

Two balls later, Murali Vijay took a stunning catch at the slip to remove consistent Mahmadullah Riyad (0) and next ball sent Shafiul Islam’s stumps cart wheeling for a first ball duck.

Rubel Hossain, however, ensured that Zaheer could not get a hat-trick.
