The next delivery is full on the stumps, and it’s defended straight back. However, there’s a wicket on the third ball as Rohit Sharma is dismissed for 0 runs off 2 balls, as he tries to punch a delivery outside off but hits it straight to the fielder.

     Tilak Varma comes in to bat at number 3. Tanzim delivers a short delivery on the body, and it’s defended. There’s a close moment as the next delivery goes between bat and pad, just above off stump. The over yields just 3 runs and a wicket for Bangladesh.

     Rohit c Anamul b Tanzim Hasan Sakib 0 in 2 balls.

     Runs: 13 | Wickets: 1 | Overs: 2

Shubman Gill hits two consecutive boundaries on the last two deliveries of the over. The first is a four as Gill pushes forward with soft hands to an overpitched delivery. The second is also a four as he gets an edge, but there’s no slip in place, and he collects another boundary. The over yields 10 runs for India.

     Runs: 27 | Wickets: 2 | Overs: 7

     In the seventh over, Tanzim Hasan continues to bowl to KL Rahul. Rahul is beaten on the first delivery, unable to adjust to the late movement, and he’s lucky to not get an inside edge. He manages to get off strike on the next delivery with a gentle nudge to cover.

     A delivery down the leg side from Tanzim is called a wide. Shubman Gill punches the ball to extra cover and completes a run. Bangladesh reviews a decision on the last delivery as the ball nips away and Rahul is beaten. The ball hits the back pad, but the replays suggest it’s too high, and the decision is not out. Rahul survives as the ball tracker confirms it was indeed too high.

     Runs: 38 | Wickets: 2 | Overs: 8

     In the eighth over, Nasum Ahmed continues to bowl to Shubman Gill. Gill defends the first two deliveries on the front foot. On the third delivery, Gill manages to hit a half-hearted cut shot, and he beats the point fielder to collect a boundary, which is a welcome sight for India.

     Gill steps out on the next delivery but gets an inside edge to fine leg, completing one run. KL Rahul adds another four to the score with a deft late cut to make the most of a delivery on off stump.

       India vs. Bangladesh Asia Cup 2023:

      In a high-stakes Asia Cup 2023 encounter, India faced off against Bangladesh in a Super Four match that delivered excitement till the very last ball. Shubman Gill’s brilliant century, his fifth in ODIs, nearly saw India over the finish line in their pursuit of 266. However, a resilient Bangladesh side, led by Shakib Al Hasan’s crucial 80, posted a competitive total of 265/8.

     India’s bowlers, particularly Shardul Thakur and Mohammed Shami, showcased their skills, but the final ten overs saw some leaky runs. The Indian batting lineup faced a challenging task as they lost wickets at regular intervals, with Gill’s century being the standout performance.

     Despite a valiant effort by Axar Patel and a late cameo, India fell agonizingly short by just six runs. Bangladesh’s disciplined fielding and composed bowling in the final overs proved decisive.

     While this loss was a setback for India, they had already secured a place in the Asia Cup 2023 final, offering valuable preparation for the upcoming Men’s ODI World Cup. Bangladesh’s remarkable performance served as a reminder of their potential as a competitive force in international cricket.

     Bangladesh stuns India with a remarkable victory! Shakib Al Hasan’s team punches above their weight to conclude their Asia Cup journey on a high note. This win marks their first against India in Men’s Asia Cup cricket since 2012. After a strong batting performance, Bangladesh carried the momentum into their bowling effort. In his debut ODI, Tanzim Hasan Sakib dismissed Rohit Sharma in his first over and breached the defenses of Tilak Varma in the following over. However, Mustafizur Rahman’s lack of rhythm from the other end was a hindrance to Bangladesh. During the middle phase, Bangladesh’s spin quartet exerted pressure with excellent control and were rewarded with wickets at regular intervals. In the closing moments, Tanzim Hasan Sakib and Mustafizur Rahman maintained their composure to secure a memorable victory.

     India made five changes to their lineup to test their bench strength, but they were outperformed by a determined Bangladesh side. India’s pursuit of 266 runs on a challenging surface got off to a rocky start with the early dismissal of their in-form captain, Rohit Sharma, on just the second legal ball of the chase. The decision to send debutant Tilak Varma at number three didn’t pay off as a misjudgment led to his dismissal.

     Shubman Gill and KL Rahul displayed resilience against the moving new ball, stabilizing the innings. However, just when it seemed like they were settling in, Rahul was dismissed, putting India in a precarious situation. Despite losing wickets at the other end, Shubman Gill held firm and kept the scoreboard ticking.

     After reaching yet another impressive century, he began to accelerate the scoring but unfortunately lost his wicket in the process, dashing India’s hopes. The team’s chances were briefly revived when Axar Patel was at the crease, but his departure in the penultimate over sealed India’s fate.

     Tanzim Hasan Sakib, reflecting on his performance, expressed his excitement about dismissing Rohit Sharma, considering it his debut wicket and a dream come true. He emphasized his focus on maintaining a good line and length in his bowling.

     Sakib mentioned that he prepares for longer spells and discussed how he planned and executed a yorker for his final ball. He expressed his satisfaction about going home on a positive note after a victory against India.

     Shakib Al Hasan, the Bangladesh skipper and Player of the Match, shared his thoughts on the game. He mentioned that they gave opportunities to players who hadn’t played much in the tournament and explained their decision to rely on spinners, given the recent conditions.

     Shakib also talked about his own performance, stating that he went in early and had time to adapt to the challenging pitch. He praised Mahedi Hasan for getting the breakthrough and highlighted his contributions at the end of the innings. Shakib acknowledged the challenges faced by the team due to injuries and player rotations but expressed confidence that Bangladesh would be a formidable side in the upcoming World Cup.

     India’s captain, Rohit Sharma, discussed the team’s approach to the match, emphasizing their intention to provide game time to players with the larger goal of the World Cup in mind. He mentioned that they didn’t compromise on their game plan and aimed to include players who are likely to feature in the World Cup.

     Rohit praised Axar Patel for his brilliant batting display but lamented the inability to finish the game. He credited the Bangladesh bowlers for their performance. He also commended Shubman Gill’s century, highlighting his consistency and work ethic, emphasizing that Gill knows how to play his game and is dedicated to the team’s success.

     Here are Bangladesh’s wins against India in multi-nation ODI tournaments:

  1. By 5 wickets – Port of Spain, CWC 2007
  2. By 5 wickets – Mirpur, Asia Cup 2012
  3. By 6 runs – Colombo RPS, Asia Cup 2023
