Bangladesh cricket team made history Friday when they won their first ever multi-nation series trophy. 

The Tigers previously played six finals, including three Asia Cup finals, and lost all of them.

This victory was therefore particularly satisfying for ODI captain Mashrafe bin Mortaza, who was over the moon and expressed hope that this is the first of many more trophies to come. 

Mashrafe emphasized on the importance of consistency and said the feeling of victory was indescribable.

“It’s a great feeling. I think we have just started. I hope we will keep the consistency on winning such tournaments in future. We have lost six finals so far. Now we have succeeded in the seventh attempt. No feeling is better than this moment at the moment,” said Mashrafe after the grand finale against the West Indies at the Malahide Cricket Club ground in Malahide, Dublin.  

Bangladesh were asked to chase 210 in 24 overs after rain dictated the equations in the final.

Opener Soumya Sarkar gave the Tigers a brilliant start and made the seemingly difficult target reachable. 

Later, youngster Mosaddek Hossain finished the match off in stunning fashion.

Mashrafe praised Soumya and Mosaddek for their invaluable contributions and applauded their ability to deal with pressure. 

“Soumya and Mosaddek batted brilliantly in a high-pressure situation. Actually, all of our batsmen handled the pressure well while chasing 210 in just 24 overs. The way they scored the runs and kept the asking rate under control, that is a good positive sign for our team. A big credit goes to Soumya’s brilliant start and Mosaddek’s stunning finish,” said Mashrafe. 

Bangladesh will begin their World Cup campaign on June 2 when they face South Africa at The Oval, and this victory in Ireland can be a huge morale booster going into the mega event.
