Bangladesh with the 60-run victory registered their maiden bilateral series win against Australia

Bangladesh T20I captain Mahmudullah dedicated the historic series win against Australia to the Father of the Nation, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, and his family.

Hosts Bangladesh Monday registered a 4-1 series win humbling the visitors with a 60-run victory in the fifth and final game of the series at Mirpur Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium.

Chasing 123 runs, Australia were restricted to 62, their lowest total in the format, inside 14 overs.

Bangladesh with the victory registered their maiden bilateral series win against Australia.

The series was the first bilateral between the two teams in the format.

August is the month of mourning for Bangladesh remembering the brutal assassination of the Father of the Nation, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and most of his family members on the night of August 15, 1975.

The incident is called the ugliest chapter in the nation's history.

“This is the month of August and I would like to dedicate the series win to our Father of the Nation [Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman] and his family,” said Mahmudullah following the post-match presentation Monday.

Star all-rounder Shakib al Hasan emerged as the Man of the Match for taking four wickets conceding nine runs in 3.4 overs, and was also adjudged Man of the Series for his 114 runs and seven wickets in the five games.

Bangladesh in their next assignment will take on New Zealand at home for a five-match T20I series. 

Visitors New Zealand are scheduled to reach Dhaka on August 24 and play the matches between September 1 to 10 in Mirpur.
