Scorecard

India dismissed Bangladesh for just 58 to seal a 47-run win win in the second One-Day International in Dhaka to move into an unassailable 2-0 series lead.

In a low-scoring game that was reduced to 41 overs per side due to bad weather, India were bowled out for 105 in 25.3 overs as debutant Taskin Ahmed took five for 28.

Bangladesh then batted for just 17.4 overs as Stuart Binny returned a haul of six for four and Mohit Sharma four for 22 to humble the hosts.

Only Mohammad Mithun (26) and Mushfiqur Rahim (11) reached double figures as Bangladesh equalled their previous lowest score in an ODI, which was registered against the West Indies in the 2011 World Cup.

Binny's six for four saw him surpass Anil Kumble's Indian record of six for 12 and his effort stands at number ninth on the all-time list.

He dismissed Mithun, Rahim, Mahmudullah (9), Nasir Hossain (0), Mashrafe Mortaza (2), Al-Amin Hossain (0).

Bangladesh had reached the interval at 19 for two and were then 44 for two before losing eight wickets for 14 runs.

Sharma removed openers Tamim Iqbal and Anamul Haque for four and nought respectively and went on to have Shakib Al Hasan caught behind for four and Ziaur Rahman caught by Akshar Patel for a duck.

Umesh Yadav was the only other bowler used and he bowled five wicketless overs for 32 runs.

Earlier, India had also found batting tricky but found a way to get past three figures. partly thanks to Yadav hitting 17 in 11 balls at number 11.

Robin Uthappa (14), Cheteshwar Pujara (11) and Suresh Raina (27) were the only others to reach double figures.

Taskin ensured a debut to remember with the ball by removing Uthappa, Pujara, Ambati Rayudu (1), Binny (3) and Amit Mishra (4).

Mortaza (2-35), Al-Amin (1-29) and Shakib (1-8) were the other wicket-takers but Bangladesh were unable to convert a dominant position into victory.

Taskin, Yadav and Binny all achieved their career-bests in not just ODI cricket, but all one-day cricket.

The final game in the series is in two days.
