India vs Bangladesh: Bangladesh bowlers’ six fours and six sixes in his 43-ball 85, which made India in a stable position to win before being removed Aminul Islam.
Gradually, India won the match by wickets 8 with 26 balls to spare. After being awarded as the Man of the Match at the post-match conference for his intense innings, Rohit Sharma said that it is significant for every batsman to give a good track to bat on.
Dew makes it difficult for the bowlers to grip the ball and took maximum advantage. He never underestimated the opposition, particularly the bowlers. All these years, he had tried to do his best whenever he had the bat in his hand. He had known the conditions perfectly and there was no turn on offer. All he focussed on to remain stationed and tonk the ball.
Secondly, motive was to finish well. A whole West Indies series coming in the future. Not to forget the two Test matches as well.
A chased down of a 154-run target was not a difficult task. India gave not an unimpressive performance in the first innings with their fielding with Rohit Sharma also dropped a catch. But the captain also looked angry with his side’s misfields.
Concluding his speech, Rohit Sharma said that he was quite an emotional person on the field. Some of the decisions in the previous, some of the on-field moments today and admit of being bit sloppy. Ultimately their aim is to get their job done and sometimes get lot of emotions. Next time, he would check where the camera is.
Yuzvendra Chahal batted first and led India’s fightback after Bangladesh openers Liton Das (29 off 21 balls, 4×4) and Mohammad Naim, 36 shared a 60-run opening stand.
Chahal (2/28) easily got 2 wickets in the 13th over of the innings to peg back the visitors. Mahmudullah (30) and Afif Hossain (6) tried to steady the ship with a 25 run-stand. Khaleel broke the partnerships after dismissing Hossain to leave Bangladesh wobbled at 128 for 5. They just managed to cross the 150-run-mark as the bowlers bowled in the right section of the areas.
