Bangladesh has secured a historic series victory over England, beating the reigning Men's T20 World Cup champions by four wickets in the second T20 of the three-match series at Shere Bangla National Stadium on Sunday.
Mehidy Hasan Miraz's exceptional performance set up the stirring victory with 4/12 from four overs that helped dismiss England for 117, then added 20 valuable runs in the chase.
Najmul Hossain Shanto scored an unbeaten 46* and Taskin Ahmed hit the winning runs with two fours in the penultimate over to steer Bangladesh to their target with four wickets and seven balls in hand, ending England's long run of success in this format, having won the T20 World Cup, and bilateral series against Australia and Pakistan last year.
This T20I series is the first between the teams, with England coming out on top in their only other meeting in the format by eight wickets at the T20 World Cup 2021.
Despite England's dominance in other formats, Bangladesh won their fifth-ever ODI against England in their most recent meeting, breaking through for a first Test win over England in Mirpur in 2016.
Bangladesh won the first T20I in the series by six wickets and will be aiming for a clean sweep in the third and final clash in Mirpur on March 14.
Miraz and Shanto were two of five players in the Bangladesh team to have played fewer than 20 T20Is, as they look to build a new group to compete at the highest level.
