Bangladesh seal historic series victory over T20 World Cup champions

Mirpur (Bangladesh): Bangladesh have beaten England in a series for the first time in any format after winning the opening two T20Is of their three-match series.

A refreshed Bangladesh line-up have broken new ground with a landmark series victory over defending ICC Men’s T20 World Cup champions England.

Mehidy Hasan Miraz set up the stirring victory with 4/12 from four overs that helped dismiss England for 117, then added 20 valuable runs in the chase, the ICC reported.

Najmul Hossain Shanto hit an unbeaten 46 not out to steer Bangladesh to their target with four wickets and seven balls in hand, to clinch a first-ever series win over England in any format.

Bangladesh won the first T20I in the series by six wickets and can now aim for a clean sweep in the third and final clash in Mirpur on March `14.

Miraz and Shanto were two of five players in the historic Bangladesh team to have played fewer than 20 T20Is, as they look to build a new group to compete at the highest level.

The T20I series in Bangladesh is the first between the teams, with England coming out on top in their only other meeting in the format by eight wickets at the T20 World Cup 2021.

England have triumphed in all five ODI series against Bangladesh, including with two wins from the three 50-over clashes between the teams earlier this month.

Bangladesh won their fifth ever ODI against England in 24 attempts in their most recent meeting after half-centuries to Shanto, Mushfiqur Rahim and Shakib Al Hasan.

England have been even more dominant in red-ball matches, with victories in their first eight Tests against Bangladesh to open with a streak of four 2-0 series victories.

But Bangladesh broke through for a first Test win over England in Mirpur in 2016 to draw that two-match series, when Mehidy Hasan Miraz (6/77) and Shakib Al Hasan (4/49) skittled the visitors for 164 to secure a rousing 108-run victory.
