Report on the celebration of this exciting cricket match

You are aware that Bangladesh won a historic victory against mighty India in its ‘100th ODI’. Now, write a report on the celebration of this exciting cricket match. 


Sabana Azim, DHAKA, December 27 : Bangladesh celebrated their 100th One Day International in a befitting manner with a 15-run victory over mighty India at Bangabandhu National Stadium (BNS) yesterday. The moment of the victory came when the red light finally flashed to rule the last Indian batsman Murali Kartik runout. There could not have been a better stage than the BNS for the Tigers to hunt down the world cup runners-up. 

In front of a fanatic 45,000 strong crowd, they squared the three-match series 1-1 and more importantly, tasted their first ODI victory on home soil. It was Bangladesh’s only third win against a Test-playing nation after defeating Pakistan in the 1999 World Cup in England and beating Zimbabwe in March this year. 

Bangladesh’s overall sixth win in One Day International was shaped by an inspired pace attack and outstanding fielding that dismissed India for 214 in 47.5 overs under lights. 

Habibul Bashar led the Bangladesh team while Sourav Ganguly was the captain of the Indian team. The man-of-the match award went to Mashrafee for his blazing 31 not out, two wickets for 36 and two fine catches.
