Bangladesh’s middle order batsmen Shakib Al Hasan and Mahmudullah scripted a historic win against New Zealand at Cardiff. In a dramatic contest, Bangladesh was tottering at 33/4 at one stage but the duo came together and forged a match-winning partnership of 224 to take their side to an incredible win.

At one point Bangladesh seemed down and out and few would have put their money on the Tigers. However, a record fifth wicket partnership helped Bangladesh make a brilliant turnaround and secure a win. This sent Twitter on fire. Here are some of the quotes.

Meanwhile, after the match, a jubilant Mashrafe Mortaza spoke at the post-match presentation and said,”The way Shakib and Mahmudullah played, it was out of the world. We knew it was going to be difficult, but we got confidence from when we beat them in Ireland. We knew this can happen. We just have to play hard and never give up. We feel great right now.”
