This happened for the first time in ODI cricketIn the second match of the ongoing ODI series between Afghanistan and Ireland, two spinners Paul Sterling and Rashid Khan created history. They both picked up a six-wicket haul in the match. It for the first time in ODI history, two bowlers had taken a six-fer in the same ODI.

We have seen many six-wicket hauls in ODIs many times before but never before have two bowlers taken one in the same ODI until 17th March 2017.

Afghanistan won the toss and elected to bat first on a good batting wicket. Afghan batsmen got better off Irish bowlers and scored 338 runs in their quota of 50 overs. Ireland Paul Sterling was the pick of the bowlers as he picked 6 wickets for 55 runs in 10 overs.

In reply, Bangladesh young sensation Rashid Khan gave his career-best ODI performance as he finished with figures of 6/43 to bowl Ireland out for 304 and help the hosts win by 34 runs and claim a 2-0 lead in the series.
