Stuart Binny, son of former India star Roger Binny, took six wickets for four runs to enter the record books as India took an unbeatable 2-0 lead against Bangladesh in Dhaka on a rainy Tuesday. India defended their lowest ever score - 105 -- against Bangladesh thanks to medium-pacer Binny, who replaced off-spinner Parvez Rasool.

Binny broke Anil Kumble's 21-year-old ODI record with a stunning 4.4-2-4-6 spell. Kumble had taken 6 for 12 against the West Indies at Eden Gardens in 1993.

On an overcast evening, Binny, who plays for Karnataka, took full advantage of the conditions. Mohit Sharma (4/22) started the initial damage and Binny wiped out the remainder of the Bangladesh batting that simply went down without a fight. (Match Highlights)
