Bangladesh rout Pakistan 3-0

News4u-Sports Desk- Bangladesh whitewashed Pakistan in a one-day international series for the first time after winning the third match by an emphatic eight wickets on Wednesday.

Bangladesh went into the match having already achieved a first ODI series win against Pakistan, and made more history.

Opener Soumya Sarkar struck his maiden century as Bangladesh raced to 251 for 2 in the 40th over, after bowling out Pakistan for 250 in 49.

Soumya was not out on 127 off 110 balls, smashing 13 fours and six sixes. Fellow opener Tamim Iqbal, who hit consecutive centuries in the last two matches, made 64 to take his run tally to 312, the highest for a Bangladeshi in any bilateral series, and the third highest in any three-match series.

Tamim hit eight fours and one six in his 76-ball innings. Tamim and Soumya shared 145 in their opening stand, to set the platform for Bangladesh’s 10th clean sweep in its history.
