Mustafizur Rahman is having a dream run. On Thursday he kickstarted his international career in the best possible way as he went on to register a five-for against the mighty Indian batting line up.
Sunday was no different as the new kid on the block pushed India into deep trouble. His knock-out punch came when he removed MS Dhoni with a slower one and soon after dismissed Axar Patel for a first-ball duck.
He is now only the second bowler to take five-fors in the first two ODI games of the career.
His performances have left every Indian fan shell-shocked and this is how he garnered praise on Twitter.
India outclassed in all departments. Bangladesh have been quite superb today, especially debutant Mustafizur Rahman

2 five wicket hauls in his 1st two matches on 2 flat pitches. Brilliant stuff from Mustafizur! A 19 yr old with the accuracy of a veteran

This is a sensational debut for Mustafizur. And he’s taken big wickets.

This is unbelievable stuff…really believed that Indian batsmen will decipher Mustafizur’s slower-ones this time around. How wrong was I?
