Hasan Mahmud takes five as Bangladesh demolish Ireland for 101
Hasan Mahmud, a Bangladeshi fast bowler, took five wickets in a T20I match against Ireland, helping his team restrict the opposition to a low score of 101.
This was Mahmud's first five-wicket haul in international cricket, and he was named the Player of the Match for his performance.
Bangladesh won the match by eight wickets with 55 balls to spare, demonstrating their dominance over Ireland.
The match was part of the Bangladesh-Ireland T20I series, which was being played in Oman due to Covid-19 travel restrictions.
Bangladesh won the series 3-0, sweeping all three matches against Ireland.
Mahmud's performance was particularly impressive because he had not played international cricket for over a year due to injury.
Ireland struggled to cope with Mahmud's pace and movement, and their batsmen were unable to build any substantial partnerships.
Bangladesh's victory was also thanks to some solid performances from their top-order batsmen, who chased down the target of 102 with ease.
The win was Bangladesh's seventh consecutive victory in T20Is, demonstrating their form in the format.
The series victory against Ireland was Bangladesh's first T20I series win since beating Zimbabwe in July 2021.
