New Zealand Clinches ODI Series Against Bangladesh, Creating History
Mirpur: Adding to their recent woes, Bangladesh suffered yet another setback as they were knocked out of the Asia Cup and subsequently lost the ODI series against New Zealand. The defeat came as a blow to the home team, who failed to secure a spot in the semi-finals and succumbed to the Kiwis’ dominance in their three-match series. New Zealand sealed their victory with a seven-wicket win over Bangladesh in the second ODI held in Mirpur yesterday. This marks the first time since 2008 that the Kiwis have triumphed in a series on Bangladeshi soil.
Mushfiquraheem’s Unfortunate Blunder Draws Attention
One incident that has taken the cricketing world by storm is the unfortunate dismissal of Bangladesh player Mushfiquraheem during yesterday’s match. Mushfiq, who had been in the spotlight for some time, found himself in the center of discussions once again. In a moment of misjudgment, Mushfiq attempted to protect the ball from Lockie Ferguson but ended up making a grave mistake. His ill-fated effort to kick the ball with his leg resulted in a failed attempt to prevent the wicket from falling. As the ball bounced up, it found its way to the stumps while simultaneously striking Mushfiq’s leg. Thankfully, the incident would have concluded as an astonishing hit-wicket, had it not been for the intervention of Bails. This unfortunate incident spread like wildfire across social media platforms, leaving fans in disbelief.
Bangladesh, who could only manage to put up a mere total of 172 runs, were overpowered by New Zealand. The Kiwis emerged victorious with seven wickets and a staggering 15 overs remaining in the match. The triumph was propelled by outstanding performances from Will Youngs and Henry Nicholls, both of whom reached the coveted milestone of scoring half centuries. Their contributions solidified New Zealand’s domination in the game.
Mirpur: Bangladesh have also lost the ODI series against New Zealand after being eliminated from the Asia Cup without seeing the semi-finals.

This is the first time since 2008 that New Zealand have won a series in Bangladesh.
Bangladesh player Mushfiquraheem, who got out in a very unfortunate manner in yesterday’s match, is now full of discussions in the cricket world. Mushfiq made a mistake while trying to protect the ball from Lockie Ferguson. Mushfiqur’s attempt to kick the ball with his leg to prevent the wicket from falling failed miserably. The ball bounced up and landed on the stumps. The actor’s leg also hit the stump. It would have turned out to be a strange shot wicket if the ball had not been moved by Bailes. This unfortunate trip by Mushfiq quickly went viral on social media.
The Kiwis defeated Bangladesh with seven wickets and 15 overs remaining in the match, who were bowled out for just 172 runs. Half centuries from Will Youngs and Henry Nicholls fueled New Zealand’s victory.
