McClenaghan banged the second ball of the 50th over short, Sohag Gazi upper-cut it for four and the Fatullah stadium erupted with joy. The famous 'Banglawash' had been completed and atmosphere became absolutely electrifying. It was time to celebrate. It was time to relish the unique moment. There were joyous celebrations all around, which went viral throughout the country.
Few could imagine Bangladesh whitewashing the Kiwis 3-0, especially after New Zealand posted 300-plus in the third ODI. Bangladesh are not known to be good chasers, let alone a total in excess of 300 against a top team. But over the years, this Bangladesh team has gained self-belief. No matter how big the total is, how tough the opposition is, the Tigers just don't go down without a fight. That's how they have been able to hand two 'Banglawashes' in a row to New Zealand.
