Mushfiqur Rahim hit an undefeated 60 off 43 balls as Bangladesh beat India in the Twenty20 cricket format for the first-ever time on Sunday, 3 November.

The Tigers had not won in their previous eight T20 meetings with India.

Chasing 149 to win, Rahim played some exquisite strokes as he scored a fourth T20 half-century to help his team reach 154-3 with three balls to spare in the series opener at Delhi.

Rahim smacked eight fours and a six, adding 60 runs for the third wicket with Soumya Sarkar (39) to guide the chase after India, which was put into bat, reached 148-6.

BCCI President Sourav Ganguly thanked both the sides for playing the match in the smog-hit national capital. “Thank u to both the teams to play this game under tuff conditions.. well done Bangladesh,” he wrote.

Others on the internet praised Bangladesh’s performance, congratulating the visiting team for their historic win over the Men in Blue.
