Bangladesh cricket is on a dream run right nowA bit of faith – coupled with some hard work – takes one a long way. There was once a time when Bangladeshis were in the dark regarding their cricket team. Despite having some talented players in the country, they couldn’t perform to their level.This disappointed the fans, who are ardent worshippers of the sport. What was worse is the fact that the fans have had to endure the pain of losing games from situations where it was impossible to do so. But after years of anguish, the sun is well and truly out now for the Tigers as they have won 4 ODI series in a row.The series win against South Africa has been one of the best moments of Bangladesh cricket, but it isn’t the only one as we look at the top 5 best moments in the history of Bangladesh Cricket…

#1 First ODI win

Akram Khan

The year was 1998 and the place was India. Bangladesh were playing Kenya in the second game of the Coco Cola Triangular Series and were chasing a target of 237. Bangladesh made a tactical change by promoting legendary slow left-arm bowler Mohammad Rafique to opening.

And it worked like a charm as he slogged his way to 77 off just 87 balls, smacking 11 fours and a six in his time at the crease. He was supported very well by Athar Ali Khan’s 47 runs innings and Akram Khan got them over the line with a very handy 39 runs that came off his blade.

It was the Tigers’ first of many ODI wins and certainly among one of their best moments.
