Tamin stars in Bangladesh's historic win over Pakistan
News ImageTamim Iqbal smashed a second consecutive century to steer Bangladesh to their first ever one-day series win over Pakistan with an emphatic seven-wicket victory in Dhaka on Sunday. The left-handed opener hit an unbeaten run-a-ball 116 as the hosts, chasing Pakistan's 239 for six, cruised home in the 39th over to take an unbeatable 2-0 lead in the three-match series. The new-look Pakistan, with just four World Cuppers in their ranks and led for the first time in a series by Azhar Ali, needed a massive improvement after their 79-run defeat in Friday's opening match. Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Mortaza, who had missed the opening match due to a one-match ban for his team's slow over-rates at the World Cup, wanted his team to push for a 3-0 whitewash.
