The Bangladesh National Cricket Team is a strong team that has produced many formidable players over the years. While the team is not as famous when compared to other teams, there were several times that the team has stood out for their performances on the field. Among the many matches that they played with various teams, some victories stand out from the rest. Whether it be because of a memorable move or how the team performed, there are some truly unforgettable wins from the team. These are just a few of the biggest wins by the Bangladesh cricket team:

Bangladesh vs Pakistan, 1999 World Cup

Let’s talk about an incredible cricket match that took place in 1999. It was Bangladesh’s first-ever World Cup, and they faced off against Pakistan. No one expected much from the underdog team, but they surprised everyone by winning the match.

Bangladesh batted first, and their captain Aminul Islam led the team to a competitive total of 223 runs, with Akram Khan being the top scorer with 42 runs off 66 balls. But the real heroics came in the second innings when Bangladesh had to defend their total against the star-studded Pakistani batting line-up.

Khaled Mahmud, one of Bangladesh’s bowlers, had a brilliant start to the innings and picked up three wickets in his opening spell. This put Pakistan on the back foot, and they soon found themselves in trouble at 42 for 5. Despite some resistance, Pakistan was eventually all out for just 161 runs, giving Bangladesh a historic 62-run victory.

This win was a turning point for Bangladesh cricket. It was the biggest win in their history at the time, and it helped them gain recognition as a full member of the International Cricket Council (ICC) the following year. It just goes to show that anything is possible in sports, and underdogs can sometimes pull off amazing feats.

Bangladesh vs Australia, Natwest Series 2005

The victory of Bangladesh over Australia in the 2005 Natwest Series is still a remarkable moment in Asian cricket history, as it remains their only win against Australia in international cricket even after 10 years.

The match held in Cardiff saw Mohammad Ashraful as the unlikely hero, in a game that started with the news of Andrew Symonds’ drunkenness, which led to his exclusion from the team. Australia struggled to score runs on a sluggish pitch and could only manage a total of 249 in their fifty overs, missing Symonds’ late flourish ability.

Bangladesh also had a slow start and found themselves in trouble at 72/3 in the 21st over when Habibul Bashar joined Ashraful at the crease. However, the duo went on to forge an excellent partnership of 130 runs for the fourth wicket, with Ashraful becoming only the second Bangladeshi cricketer to score an ODI century. Though they couldn’t finish the game, a quick-fire cameo by Aftab Ahmed, who remained unbeaten on 21 runs from 13 balls, helped Bangladesh chase down the target with four balls to spare.


Bangladesh vs India, 2007 ODI World Cup

In 2007, Bangladesh and India faced off in a cricket match. India batted first, but Bangladesh’s Mashrafe Mortaza and other bowlers did an amazing job of keeping them from scoring too many runs. In the end, India only managed to score 191 runs. Then it was Bangladesh’s turn to bat, and Tamim Iqbal, Mushfiqur Rahim, and Shakib Al Hasan all played well, each scoring more than 50 runs.

Thanks to their efforts, Bangladesh won the game with nine balls left and five wickets still in hand. This win was a big deal because it helped Bangladesh advance to the next round of the tournament, while India was knocked out.

Bangladesh vs England, 2015 World Cup

Bangladesh has been improving its World Cup performances over the years. In 2011, they won three matches in the group stages, one of which was against England. Unfortunately, they missed out on moving forward to the quarter-finals by just a net run-rate behind West Indies.

In the 2015 World Cup, Bangladesh beat England once again, this time with a thrilling 15-run victory at the Adelaide Oval. This win was even more impressive because England was expected to do better in those conditions.

During the match, Bangladesh batted first and scored 275 runs in 50 overs, with Mohammad Mohammadullah making their first-ever World Cup hundred and Mushfiqur Rahim scoring 89 runs off 77 balls. England started well but quickly lost three wickets with only 11 runs on the board. Although Jos Buttler’s quick fifty helped them regain momentum, Rubel Hossain’s spirited bowling performance ensured England fell short by 15 runs, leaving Chirs Woakes stranded at the other end on 40.

Bangladesh vs England, 2nd Test, 2016

In 2016, Bangladesh and England played a series of cricket matches. The teams played three one-day matches and two test matches. The one-day matches were very close, but England ended up winning two out of three. In the first test match, Bangladesh put up a good fight but England won by a narrow margin.

Bangladesh had one last chance to redeem themselves in the final test match. They started strong, with Tamim scoring an amazing century and the team putting up 220 runs in their first innings. Mehidy Hasan Miraz was the star with the ball, taking six wickets and limiting England to 244 runs.

In their second innings, Bangladesh improved their performance and scored 296 runs, setting a target of 272 for England. Shakib and Mehidy were amazing with the ball, taking four and six wickets respectively, causing chaos for England. In the end, England only managed to score 164, and Bangladesh won the match by 108 runs, tying the series 1-1. It was an exciting match and a great win for Bangladesh!
