ODI Cricket: Bangladesh played their first one-day international on March 31st, 1986, against Pakistan in the Asia Cup. For most of the time, Bangladesh loved football, but since cricket came into prominence, it has become the most popular sport in the country. They won the ICC Trophy in Malaysia in 1997 and qualified for the World Cup for the first time in 1999.
Then, on June 26, 2000, they got full membership in the ICC. They are now one of the most promising teams in the world. It is very difficult for teams to beat them at home. With some big names in their side, Bangladesh has become a competitive team. However, there are times when they perform poorly. In this article, we will discuss the list of lowest ODI totals for Bangladesh.
3. Bangladesh all out for 70 runs against West Indies
The third lowest total came in a match against the West Indies at St. George’s. After winning the toss, Bangladesh chose to bowl first and got the first wicket early. But after that, Chris Gayle (58) and DJ Bravo (53) added a good partnership of 88 runs for the second wicket. The West Indies scored 247/7 runs thanks to some useful knocks from middle-order batsmen.
Mashrafe Mortaza picked up three wickets for 39 runs. Chasing the target, opener Tamim Iqbal scored 37 runs. But apart from him, none of the other Bangladeshi batters crossed the 8-run mark. The next high score was by Anamul Haque, who scored seven runs. As a result, they got all out for 70 runs and lost the match by 177 runs.
2. Bangladesh all out for 58 runs against India
This was one of the most entertaining matches in ODI cricket. Bangladesh took on India at Mirpur. After winning the toss, Bangladesh chose to bowl first. India had a terrible day with the bat and none of the Indian batters made any significant contributions. Only skipper Suresh Raina made 27 runs and India got all out for 105 runs.
Debutant Taskin Ahmed picked up five wickets in that match. It looked like Bangladesh would crush India in the chase. But what happened next was just a scene from the movie. India used only three bowlers and bowled Bangladesh out for 58 runs and defended the total. Stuart Binny registered the best ODI figure for any Indian bowler. He picked up six wickets for just four runs, and Mohit Sharma picked up four wickets. The Men in Blue won the match by 47 runs.
3. Bangladesh all out for 58 runs against West Indies (Their lowest in ODI cricket)
Bangladesh have been bowled out for 58 runs twice, which is their lowest ODI score. It was the 19th match of the 2011 World Cup between Bangladesh and West Indies at Mirpur. After winning the toss, Bangladesh decided to bat first. But that decision totally backfired on them. They got all out for 58 runs, with Junaid Siddique (25) the highest scorer.
West Indies used only three bowlers. Sulieman Benn picked up four wickets, and Kemar Roach and Daren Sammy took three each. With a low score to chase, the Caribbean team took just 12.2 overs and chased down the target with nine wickets in hand. Chris Gayle remained unbeaten on 37* off 36 balls.
