Bangladesh recently made history by securing victories in two international matches on the same day. It all happened on a memorable Sunday (October 7) when the Bangladesh cricket team showcased their prowess in two separate games at different events, with one of their team competing in the ODI World Cup 2023 and the other battling it out in the Asian Games 2023.
The incredible feat saw the Bangla Tigers etch their name in the annals of cricket history, as no team had ever achieved such a double win on the same day.
Double delight for Bangladesh in two different formats
Bangladesh’s cricketing journey on this historic day began with their Asian Games 2023 squad taking on Pakistan in the battle for the third-place finish after losing a hard-fought semi-final match against India. In a rain-reduced 5-over match, Bangladesh showcased their batting prowess by reaching a formidable total of 65/4 in a last-ball thriller. The successful run chase not only resulted in them securing the bronze medal in the T20I format but even set the stage for an incredible day of cricketing achievements.

Meanwhile, Bangladesh’s ODI World Cup squad also showed tremendous cricketing prowess by handing a defeat to Afghanistan. The Shakib al Hasan-led side emerged victorious in the contest by six wickets after bundling out the Afghan side for 156.
Winning in two different formats on the same day
What makes Bangladesh’s achievement truly exceptional is not only the double victory but also the fact that they conquered two entirely different formats of the game on the same day. The ODI World Cup match was a 50-over contest, while the Asian Games match was played in the T20I format. This historic achievement puts Bangladesh in a league of their own as they are the first-ever team to win international matches in two different formats on the same day.
