Tigers Let Victory Slip Away in First ODI
Midway through the 41st over, chasing what looked like a daunting total of 309, Bangladesh were poised for what would have been a historic win — needing only 39 runs from the last 52 balls, with a full six wickets in hand.
But it was not to be. The Tigers suffered a sudden and embarrassing collapse. Incredibly, Shakhib al Hasan, Mossadek Hossain, Captain Mashrafe bin Mortaza, Imrul Kayes, Shafiuk Islam and Taskin Ahmed all went down before the 48th over was finished.
That was the game, with Bangladesh collecting only 17 runs for those last six wickets to finish 21 runs short of a score that only an hour earlier looked comfortably attainable, and the crowd that had cheered boisterously for every run started heading for the exits early.
Batting, however, was only one aspect of the game in which Bangladesh suffered a frustrating breakdown. Bowling first after England won the toss, Bangladesh fielders put down three easy catches and allowed three more balls that should have been outs fall safely between confused fielders.
England’s star all-rounder Ben Stokes took full advantage of two drops, first by Mamadullah and then by Mosharraf Hossain with two overs, to power on with his maiden ODI century.
Mortaza said that his players, particularly at the bat, “panicked” in the game.
“We have every chance to return to the series. I think we have no alternative but to think positively,” the Bangladesh skipper said. “Reviewing the dismissals again will show that the batsmen had clearly panicked. We could have been more composed as 10 to 12 dot balls would have been no problem. We got out like that for being hasty in the chase.”
England debutante Jake Ball took a five-wicket haul, earning Man of the Match honors as he sent Bangladesh packing.

Team News and Projected Lineups for Second ODI
Already missing their usual white-ball Captain Eoin Morgan as well as Alex Hales, both of whom skipped the Bangladesh tour out of concern over possible terrorism in the country, England may now find themselves without Jonny Bairstow and Jason Roy, both of whom were injured in the Friday match.
Bangladesh, reports say, are thinking about dropping Mosharraf and Mosaddek Hossain after Mossadek dropped two catches while being touched for 50 runs in nine overs without taking a wicket. Nasir Hossain and Al-Amin Hossain could see their ways back into the XI.
For now, here are the projected teams:
Bangladesh: 1 Tamim Iqbal, 2 Imrul Kayes, 3 Sabbir Rahman, 4 Mushfiqur Rahim (wicketkeeper), 5 Shakib Al Hasan, 6 Mahmudullah, 7 Mosaddek Hossain, 8 Mashrafe Mortaza (captain), 9 Mosharraf Hossain, 10 Shafiul Islam, 11 Taskin Ahmed.
England: 1 Jason Roy, 2 James Vince, 3 Ben Duckett, 4 Jonny Bairstow/Sam Billings, 5 Ben Stokes, 6 Jos Buttler (captain and wicketkeeper), 7 Moeen Ali, 8 Chris Woakes, 9 Adil Rashid, 10 David Willey, 11 Jake Ball.
Bangladesh and England next travel to the port city of Chittagong to wrap up the three-ODI series on Wednesday.
