Winning the toss, Bangladesh opted to field first. Tamim Iqbal was rested for this match. Seamers gave perfect start as they picked up four wickets of India for 102 in 22 overs. But then a 164-run stand between KL Rahul and MS Dhoni powered India for a massive total. Both scored centuries as India posted 359 for 7 after 50 overs. Shakib Al Hasan and Rubel Hossain shared two wickets each.
Soumya Sarkar and Liton Kumar Das started off the Bangladesh innings on a good note before Bumrah got rid of Soumya. In the next ball Bumrah bowled Shakib for a duck. Post that, Liton and Mushfiqur Rahim’s 120 runs partnership in the third wicket looked well in touch. But then again India came back in the match by picking up couple of quick wickets in no time as Bangladesh reduced to 216 for 8 in the 41st overs.
Liton was dismissed after scoring 73 while Mushfiqur was gone for 90. Mehidy Hasan Miraz and Mohammad Saifuddin then added 46 runs in the 9th wicket as Bangladesh were all out for 264 in the final over. Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal took three wickets each for India.
