Bangladesh has won the first ever title of any of the bilateral series. On 1 st May 1998, India came to Hyderabad to win the first one-dayer. 21 years later, on 17 May, Bangladesh got their first title. Young all-rounder Mosaddek Hossain Saikat has made a great contribution to the team's success. Bangladesh's cricket enthusiasts are delighted with his extraordinary success.
But Mosaddek has come to the discussion for another reason. He made a half-century in 23 balls. But important news media such as ESPNcricinfo and Cricbuzz have published a wrong report. Even the ICC website has published the news that this Bangladeshi all-rounder or half-century in the 20th
Although, in the video of the match, Mossadek shows that he did not score 20, he scored half century. He scored an unbeaten 52 off 24 balls with two fours and five sixes.

But if the Half-Century was 20, Mossadek could have made a fast haul for Bangladesh in one-day internationals. The former captain Mohammad Ashraful and Abdur Razzak could also get out.
Ashraful scored a half century in 21 against England at Trent Bridge in Nottingham in 2005. In 2013, Razzak made a half century in Bulawayo, 21 against Zimbabwe. Mosaddek exited these two.
Bangladesh are unbeaten champions in the tri-series one-day series. Mashrafeera lost to West Indies by five wickets in the final of the tournament. Apart from Mosaddek, opener Soumya Sarkar also contributed to the team's victory. Soumya scored 66 runs from nine fours and three sixes in 41 balls.
