The Bangladesh Cricket Team has won two out of the two One Day International matches that they have played against Pakistan in the ongoing series and by doing so, they have taken an unbeatable lead of 2-0.
After the memorable World Cup that they had, the spirit of the Bangladeshi Cricketers has gone sky high and they are playing with a lot of confidence now.
Yes, you can say that this Pakistani team that they have beaten, it’s a new look side, but, that’s not Bangladesh’s fault.
They have confronted the team that is sent by Pakistan and have beaten them.
It would be a little unfair to talk about the inexperience of the Pakistani team and thus, undermine the achievement of Bangladesh.
The hero for Bangladesh in this series victory has been the left handed opener Tamim Iqbal who has scored hundred in both the matches.
The wicketkeeper Mushfiqur Rahim as well, he too has scored heavily, a hundred in the first game and a fifty in the second.
For Pakistan on the other hand, this is a little bit of an embarrassment despite the fact that they have a young team which is playing under a new captain.
To lose an ODI series to Bangladesh is not something that their fans or even the rest of the world would be expecting from them.
After this series, the Pakistani selectors will have to think about their decision of leaving Ahmed Shahzad and Umar Akmal out.
Those two are the most talented of all the young players that have come out of the Pakistani system over the last 5 years and to think about rebuilding the team without them is probably not advisable.
Shahzad is, however, in the T20 team that is to play Bangladesh in a few days’ time.
