In 2014, under Suresh Raina, Indian team toured Bangladesh and picked players to test the bench strength. Stuart was one of the members in the low profile series. However, the second ODI at the Shere Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur, Dhaka turned out to be allow scoring thriller.
India were bundled out for just 105 runs with captain Raina scoring highest runs (27) in 25.3 overs India were undone by Bangladesh bowlers, especially young Taskin Ahmed who scalped five wickets.
In response to India’s paltry 105, Bangladesh got off to a poor start with pacer Mohit Sharma removing both the openers for just 13 runs on board. Mohammad Mithun and captain Mushfiqur Rahim then took Bangladesh forward in the small chase. The hosts needed 62 more runs to win with eight wickets in hand when Stuart in his second over dismissed Mushfiqur.

Bangladesh were dismissed for just 58 runs. Stuart’s spell included two maidens as well in which he bettered Anil Kumble’s 6/12 record to register best bowling figures by an Indian bowler in ODIs.
