Just then, Bangladesh have put a struggling albeit below-par total on the board, but their bowlers will need to be at their absolute best if they are to defend this and upset the hosts. India have a long batting order and with most of the batsmen in form, they will look to shoot this down and maintain their unbeaten record in the tournament. But if Hardik Pandya is unable to take the field and Bangladesh get early wickets, it could turn out to be quite a contest. Join us for a bit to see how the hunt develops.
Ravindra Jadeja is down for a quick chat. He says the wicket looks very good and there was no turn. Adds that if they play normal cricket they should get over the line. About his celebration, he says it was for the pitching coach who hands out the award for best fielder after the game, and he wants to get his hands on that trophy. Mentions that it looks like a flat wicket and hopes the batters can get the job done. Also says that when there is no turn for the spinner, bowl wicket-to-wicket and keep the lines tight.
India, on the other hand, will be happy with the way they recovered from the big opening partnership. Mohammed Siraj and Jasprit Bumrah bowled well with the new ball but without any rewards. They suffered a setback when Hardik Pandya got injured just after bowling three balls and Virat Kohli ended the over which got the crowd going. It was again Kuldeep Yadav’s magic that gave them the crucial breakthrough which was followed up well by Ravindra Jadeja who also picked up two important wickets. A brilliant catch from KL Rahul behind the stumps got Siraj his first wicket which put more pressure on the batsmen and the hosts managed to squeeze in some cheap overs. Then Jadeja produced another stunner to hand Bumrah his first wicket. They continued the pressure with both pacers getting one more wicket each in the dying overs while Shardul Thakur, who had another day off, also got one in the end.
Bangladesh had a bit of a hard time initially against the Indian pacers but their openers did not throw their wickets away and once their eyes were fixed, the counter attack started. They targeted Hardik Pandya and Shardul Thakur and put up some beautiful boundaries. Litton Das and Tanzid Hasan created some history as they added 93 runs together, which is also the highest opening partnership for Bangladesh in ODI World Cups. Tanzid finally showed why he was backed and made a fine fifty but got out just after reaching it. Das lost a couple of partners and then decided to switch gears, it worked for him as he brought up his second half-century of the tournament but got out on 66 and went for a big one. Mushfiqur Rahim and Towhid Hridoy steadied the ship for them after that, but the latter struggled throughout and buckled under pressure as he made 16 off 35 balls, costing him many deliveries. Rahim departed after a well-made 38 but the experience of Mahmudullah came in handy as he provided the finishing touches with a decent knock of 46 off just 36 balls and a couple of breezy strokes from Nasum Ahmed and hitting six of the last balls from Shoriful helped. they arrive at a competitive total.
Another good bowling performance from India! They would have hoped to finish even better but will be satisfied with the overall effort. Bangladesh will be kicking themselves for not taking full advantage of the start given by their openers and have to settle for 256 runs.
