Sharma And Kohli Open For India

Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli opened for India against Bangladesh at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua. Mahedi Hasan bowled the first over, where Rohit managed to score 3 runs: first, he lifted a floaty full delivery over the off-side for 2 runs, then flicked a quicker delivery to mid-wicket for no run, and finally punched a short delivery down to long-on for a single. India aimed to build on this start to set a competitive total against Bangladesh.

India 8/0

Sharma-Kohli Hit Boundaries

Shakib Hasan faced a tough challenge from both Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli in the same over. Kohli capitalized on a full delivery on middle and leg, getting under it and launching it effortlessly over the wide long-on fence for a massive six. Meanwhile, Rohit Sharma scored two boundaries in the over: the first a well-timed flick behind square on the leg-side for four runs, followed by a powerful sweep that raced to the boundary after bouncing once.

India 29/0

Rohit Sharma Falls

Shakib to Rohit, out Caught by Jaker Ali!! Rohit's aggressive approach ends as Shakib follows him, sliding a full delivery with the arm. Rohit, who had scored 23 runs off just 11 balls with three boundaries and a six, edges it to Jaker Ali behind the stumps. Shakib's variation and strategy pay off, providing Bangladesh a crucial breakthrough. This dismissal shifts momentum in the match, highlighting Shakib's skill and experience in T20 cricket. Rishabh Pant comes to the crease.

India 44/1

Trivia Alert!!!

Did you know? Rohit Sharma and Shakib Al Hasan are in a league of their own! While Shakib recently claimed his 50th wicket in T20 Internationals, both these phenomenal players share a unique distinction - they are the only two cricketers to have participated in all nine editions of the ICC Men's T20 World Cup!

Kohli Is Making The Crowd Dance

Rishad Hossain hurled a full delivery right in Virat Kohli's zone around off stump. Seizing the opportunity, the in-form batsman crouched low and launched a powerful shot back over the bowler's head. The ball cleared the ropes in style, sailing a staggering 81 meters for a magnificent six down the ground!

India 67/1

Kohli & Suryakumar Departs After Igniting Hope

After hitting a six off the second ball, Suryakumar Yadav (SKY) found himself walking back to the pavilion. Tanzim Hasan Sakib induced extra bounce with a length delivery outside off, catching SKY in two minds between defending and dabbing. He ended up gloving the ball to the right of the keeper, where Litton Das took a comfortable catch. Despite starting with a maximum, SKY's brief innings came to an abrupt end, contributing 6 runs off just 2 deliveries. Shivam Dube comes to the crease.

India 83/3

Pant Is Dismantling BAN Bowlers

Pant kept the runs flowing after a strong start from Kohli and Rohit. Mustafizur's full toss was flicked for four behind square, and Pant wasted no time launching a six over deep mid-wicket off the next ball.

Pant Out, Pandya In

Frustrated Rishad Hossain finally gets his man, Rishabh Pant with well-placed deliveries. Hossain went fuller and quicker just outside off, prompting Pant to attempt a reverse sweep.

Pant's departure, after scoring 36 runs off 24 balls with four boundaries and two sixes. Hardik Pandya in for India.

Dube Falls After Hitting Big

Rishad Hossain has the last laugh as he cleans up Shivam Dube with a calm and composed approach under pressure.

India 171/5

Hitting Sixes? Cakewalk For Pandya - Last Over

The tension was palpable as Mustafizur cranked up the pace, firing a searing 139.3 kph delivery that strayed way outside Hardik Pandya's off-stump. The umpire's finger went up for a no-ball, gifting India a precious two runs. Unfazed, Pandya stayed focused, calmly guiding the next legitimate delivery – another full toss outside off – towards the sweeper cover fielder for another two runs.

Das & Hasan Open for Bangladesh, Arshdeep Leads India's Bowling Attack

Bangladesh opens with Litton Das and Tanzid Hasan. Arshdeep Singh takes the first over for India.

Bangladesh 5/0

Tanzid Starts Strong With Two Fours

Arshdeep Singh's opening delivery offered some width, a tempting invitation for Tanzid Hasan. The Bangladeshi batsman didn't disappoint. He unleashed a powerful cut shot, ignoring the need for a perfectly controlled stroke. The ball soared uppishly over the infield, comfortably clearing Ravindra Jadeja at point, and bringing Tanzid his first boundary and getting him off the mark.

Bangladesh 21/0

Litton Departs

And Hardik Pandya delivered a double blow! Having impressed with the bat earlier, he now claimed the crucial first wicket for India. Litton Das, fresh off a six, was tempted by another big shot. However, Pandya cleverly slowed the delivery down, leaving Das in a tangle. Mistiming the pull shot, Das launched the ball high over square leg. Despite the strong wind, Suryakumar Yadav, ever-alert in the outfield, judged the trajectory perfectly and secured a well-deserved catch. Litton, at 13 runs off just 10 balls.

Bangladesh 41/1

Pandya Denies Shanto Easy Runs, But Bangladesh Find Relief with a Six!

The momentum remained delicately balanced after Hardik Pandya's breakthrough wicket. He kept the pressure on with a full delivery on Shanto's leg-stump, forcing the batsman to defend resolutely back to the bowler. However, Bangladesh found some respite in the next over. Pandya's delivery strayed down leg-side, offering Shanto a scoring opportunity. The batsman capitalized with a well-timed six, momentarily easing the pressure on the Bangladesh.

Bangladesh 64/1

Tanzid Out!!

Kuldeep Yadav gets Tanzid Hasan out LBW. Despite the initial decision, Hasan reviews the call, but the Indians are already confident, walking back to their marks. The review shows three reds, confirming the dismissal. Tanzid Hasan shakes his head, acknowledging there was no bat involved, and the decision stands. Towhid Hridoy comes to the crease.

Bangladesh 91/3

Kuldeep's Googly Scares BAN

Kuldeep Yadav to Mahmudullah, no run - What a googly! Everything was perfect about that delivery. Mahmudullah is lucky it missed his tentative forward defense and the top of off-stump. He did well not to overbalance and drag his back foot out. Kuldeep Yadav is really on top of his game.

Bangladesh 109/5

Wickets Fall Like Rain

Bumrah's cunning slower ball, disguised as an off-cutter, deceived Shanto who slogged across the line, only to find a thick outside edge. Arshdeep Singh, positioned perfectly at third man, took a comfortable catch to send Shanto packing for 40 (32). The tide continued to turn dramatically as Arshdeep himself struck in the very next over. Losing control of his bottom hand, Jaker miscued a leg-side swing, offering a straightforward catch to Virat Kohli stationed deep mid-wicket. Jaker Ali departed for a mere 1 run off 4 balls.

Bangladesh 143/7

Last Over!!!

In the final over, Arshdeep Singh strikes as Mahmudullah is caught by Axar Patel. Mahmudullah departs for 13 runs off 15 balls, including one boundary.

Bangladesh 145/8

India Win By 50 Runs

India continued their winning streak in the T20 World Cup with another comprehensive performance, securing a dominant 50-run victory over Bangladesh. Hardik Pandya once again shone with the bat in the first innings, laying a solid foundation. The bowling attack, spearheaded by Kuldeep Yadav's brilliance in the middle overs, then choked the Bangladeshi chase, restricting them well short of the target. With this convincing victory, India have not only cemented their place as strong contenders but also marched confidently towards a coveted semi-final spot.

Hardik Pandya- Player Of The Match

We have played really good cricket. More than anything we have stuck together and executed our plans. I did realise the batters wanted to use the breeze, I made sure I did not give them a chance where the wind was blowing, it was about being one step ahead as a batter. We as a group can get better in a lot of places, losing wickets in bunches is something we can rectify and get better at, apart from that, we are looking good. I have been fortunate to play for the country, it was a freak injury I had, I wanted to come back but God had other plans. I was talking to Rahul [Dravid] sir the other day, and he said: Luck comes to people who work hard and that has stuck with me for a long time.

Rohit Sharma Said

I have been talking about this for a long time now. It's about going there and putting that into work. Considering everything we played really well, adapted to the conditions. There's a little bit of wind factor here, overall we are very smart, overall we were good with bat and ball. All eight batters need to play their role, whatever it is. We saw one guy get 50 and we got 197, in T20 I don't believe we need to get fifties and hundreds, what matters is the pressure you put on the bowlers. There is a lot of experience in the squad and we back them. I mentioned in the last game as well, Hardik batting well puts us in a good spot. We want to finish well after the top 5, 6, Hardik being Hardik we know what he is capable of. He is a very important player for us, if he can keep doing that, it will put us in good position.

Good Night

That's all from our end, we will see you all again with another live coverage.
