Tri-series T20I: India win toss, elect to bowl against Bangladesh

  • Tri-nation

Liton Das, the beneficiary of two drops, managed 34 and Sabbir Rahman added 30 at No. 6, but apart from them, there were no contributions to speak of from the Bangladesh line-up. But the win was mostly set-up by the bowlers Jaydev Unadkat (3/38), Vijay Shankar (2/32), Yuzvender Chahal (1/19) and Shardul Thakur (1/25).

Rohit Sharma-led Team India will look to bounce back in style when the Men in Blue take on Bangladesh in their second match of the 2018 Nidahas Trophy here on Thursday.

Sharma refused to blame the defeat on the inexperienced bowling line up - Vijay Shankar, Washington Sundar and Shardul Thakur had played a combined six T20 Internationals between them including Tuesday's game.

In the absence of Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma has been appointed as India's captain for this tri-series but he has not been leading from the front in the manner the team wants him to. "I'm sure we will learn from our mistakes", Rohit said after the loss, as quoted by the Times of India.

'At least' 4000 Juventus fans present for Tottenham clash, number could rise
Spurs qualified for the last 16 by finishing top of a group including the reigning European champions Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund, and Pochettino feels the club have earned respect across the continent.

But those early strikes weren't enough to keep Dhawan from taking the game away from Bangladesh as he put on 68 for the third wicket with Suresh Raina (28).

The talented K.L. Rahul too sat out of the first game but as the opening combination is settled, it remains to be seen if he gets to bat in the middle-order. We need to take care of the dot balls or else it is tough to progress in this format. Bangladesh skipper Mahmadullah said:It's obvious that we didn't bat well. Moreover, this is the first time India and Bangladesh are clashing in a T20I match in Sri Lanka. Bangladesh couldn't score more freely and they ended with 139 which is a below-par score. His opening partner Soumya Sarkar (14 runs in12 balls) became the victim of when he was caught at short fine-leg after some clever piece of captaincy. Forty-six per cent of the deliveries they faced didn't fetch them a run. "I am not looking at that particular side, what I am looking at is playing some good, hard cricket". Not only were they finding it hard to middle the ball but also ended up playing out 57 dots.

Bangladesh's confidence is at an all-time low with just one win from their last 10 T20Is.
