An embattled Bangladesh skipper, Mushfiqur Rahim lashed out at his batsmen after a humiliating 47-run (D/L method) defeat to India on Tuesday. Chasing 106 in 41 overs, the hosts crashed from 44/2 to be bowled out for 58 against the world champions under overcast conditions.


Bangladesh lost a golden opportunity to draw level after India took an unassailable lead in the series in Mirpur. Rahim, who had been critical of India sending across a second string team for the bilateral series, seemed visibly embarrassed and felt let down.

"The way our batsmen played embarrassed the country in front of the whole world. The way some of our batsmen selected their shots was not good enough. The pitch was doing a bit for the quicks but if you came in and spent some time 106 was chaseable," Rahim said after the match.
