Bangladesh humiliate Pakistan to a new low with a 3-0 ODI series sweep

 
 

A scintillating maiden hundred by Soumya
Sarkar has fired Bangladesh to an easy
eight-wicket victory over Pakistan and
completed 3-0 humiliation of the 1992 world
champions in Mirpur.
The Tigers continued their dominance in the
series, chasing down 251 with 63 balls to
spare at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket
Stadium in Mirpur on Wednesday.
Bangladesh bowlers fought back brilliantly
to skittle Pakistan out for 250 in 49 overs
after they threatened to set a huge target
following a fine maiden century by captain
Azhar Ali.
It caps a remarkable turnaround for the
Tigers who waited more than 16 years for
their first win in any format.
For Pakistan, it got from bad to worse as
they went from being invincible to whipping
boys.
