Mushfiqur Rahim led Bangladesh to a record T20I win against Sri Lanka in the third T20I of the Nidahas Trophy at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo on Saturday.
Rahim’s audacious 35-ball 72 helped Bangladesh chase down a mammoth target of 215 with two balls to spare. This was Bangladesh’s highest successful chase in a T20 International (T20I) bettering the 190 made against Ireland in 2012. This was also the fourth highest successful chase in T20Is.
And after picking up the winning run, the Bangladeshi captain befittingly exulted in his exuberant jamboree- ‘Naagin Dance’.
