All-round Nasir leads India A drubbing

A sparkling all-round performance from Nasir Hossain led Bangladesh A to a 65-run win against India A in the second one-dayer, helping them level the series 1-1.

Coming in at 82 for 5 in the 19th over, Nasir struck an unbeaten hundred, his third in List A matches, and then took five wickets, including those of Unmukt Chand and Suresh Raina, to make the win comfortable in the end.

The India A chase looked on course when they were 119 for 1 in the 28th over, with Chand on 56, and even when Suresh Raina smacked Rubel Hossain for a six three overs later with the hosts needing 116 runs from 19 overs.

But Nasir had Chand caught behind down the leg side and then got Raina and Karun Nair stumped within four balls to leave India A struggling at 146 for 5.

Bangladesh A captain Mominul Haque brought back Rubel Hossain immediately from the other end and the bowler did the needful by removing Sanju Samson for a golden duck and Karn Sharma for 2, while Nasir knocked over Rishi Dhawan's off stump, also for a duck, thwarting India's chance of a win.
