India vs Bangladesh, Bangladesh sets a new opening-day record.
After deciding to bat first, Bangladesh enjoyed a great start thanks to their record-setting opening pair. With veteran partner Litton Das, Tanzid Hasan (51 off 43 balls) reached his first ODI fifty and scored a record-breaking 93 runs for the first wicket. Their World Cup opening stand was the highest ever. At 93 for 1 in 14.4 overs, Bangladesh was in a good position when Kuldeep Yadav handed India the first breakthrough in the 15th over.
At that point, Bangladesh appeared to be on track for 300 after Das reached his 12th half-century.
Regular wickets hurt Bangladesh
In the 20th over, a fellow spinner, Najmul Hossain Shanto, the substitute captain, gave the hosts their second wicket, following Kuldeep’s crucial dismissal. The team’s captain in Shakib Al Hasan’s absence, Shanto, scored just eight runs before being LBWed by Jadeja. Following Mehidy Hasan Miraz’s dismissal by Mohammed Siraj in the 25th over thanks to a brilliant one-handed catch by wicketkeeper KL Rahul, Litton Das (66 off 82) was sent back to the pavilion in the 28th over after another devastating strike by Jadeja.
From 93 for no loss in 14.3 overs, a dominant position, Bangladesh was reduced to 137 for 4 in 27.4 overs. India vs Bangladesh
The final push from Mahmudullah
With a final surge of 42 runs for the fifth wicket, Mahmudullah Towhid Hridoy (16) and Mushfiqur Rahim (38) helped to steady the ship. But they consistently lost wickets, which did not help.
Give them the freedom to demand a higher sum. Mahmudullah, who scored 46 off 36 balls with the help of three sixes and an equal number of fours, was the only Bangladeshi to keep the run rate moving in the last overs. With the help of Mahmudullah’s onslaught, they were able to surpass the 250-run barrier and record 256 for 8 in 50 overs. Mohammed Siraj (2/60), Jasprit Bumrah (2/41), and Jadeja (2/38) each took two wickets for India vs Bangladesh.
India’s chase gets off to a strong start
India’s openers also got off to a fast start in Pune’s intense pursuit of 257.
When Shubman Gill joined the party with a first-ball four off Mustafizur Rahman in the following over, skipper Rohit Sharma had already begun his innings with two fours off Shoriful Islam. The pair continued to hit boundaries, and Gill even hit two sixes off Nasum Ahmed in one over to help India reach 63 for no loss after 10 overs.
Kohli India’s slow and steady revival
Indian hitters Virat Kohli and Shreyas Iyer ensured no unwelcome hiccups after losing Gill. The pair added runs in singles and doubles while keeping the run chase on track slowly and steadily. Iyer (19 off 25) became Mehidy Hasan Miraz’s second victim as India’s No. 4 rushed out for a tremendous shot in the 30th over but misplayed it and was holed out by Mahmudullah at the midwicket boundary, completing Kohli’s 69th ODI half-century. Iyer and Kohli had by that time scored a solid 46 runs for the third wicket in 9.5 overs. When KL Rahul joined Kohli in the middle, India was 178/3 and looking good in their pursuit of India vs Bangladesh.
India’s slow and steady revival
The cherry on top came during the last leg of the chase, when Kohli needed 15 to reach his 48th ODI hundred, and the team also required the same for the win. Ultimately, Kohli (103, not out of 97) hit a huge six over deep mid-wicket to notch his century and lead India to their fourth straight victory in the competition. On Thursday, Kohli set a new record for the fastest hitter to reach 26,000 runs in international cricket.
