Bangladesh got first test win against England with 108 run in hand

News Hour:

Teenage sensation Mehedi Hasan took six wickets as Bangladesh secured their first ever test win over England with an 108-run victory on Sunday.

Youngster Mehedi Hasan Miraz continued his prolific form with the ball as he captured 12 English scalps for 159 to power Bangladesh to record a historic Test 108 run victory over England in the 2nd and final Test at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium at Mirpur.

This incredible victory enabled Bangladesh to square the series 1-1 after winning by 108 runs on Sunday. Mehedi Hasan was the hero ably supported by Shakib Al Hasan with 4 for 49 as England chasing 273 to win, collapsed from 100 for no loss to 164 all out after tea.

This is Bangladesh’s first ever victory over England, the first time they have ever won a Test against a top-ranked country and their only win over someone other than West Indies or Zimbabwe.

Miraz was named the player of the match and also player of the series for his impressive performance. Bangladesh win by 108 runs, the series is shared 1-1, and this is the most famous day in their history. They have been a Test nation since 2000 and this is their eighth victory overall, but none come as close to this for the size of scalp.

Off-spinner Mehedi picked up his second five-wicket haul in the test for a match-haul of 12 wickets as the hosts tied up the two-match series at 1-1.
