India skipper Rohit Sharma had a brilliant reaction to Litton Das' dismissal in the ongoing Super 8 game against Bangladesh at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, North Sound, Antigua.

Batting first, India posted a big total of 196 for 5 in the allotted 20 overs. India vice-captain Hardik Pandya starred with the bat, scoring a quickfire half-century to propel the team to its biggest total in the ongoing T20 World Cup 2024 so far.

India were reeling at 108 for 4 at one stage before Hardik Pandya's brilliant knock took the team to the big total. Apart from him, the likes of Virat Kohli (37), Rishabh Pant (36) and Shivam Dube (34) played crucial knocks as well. For Bangladesh, Tanzim Hasan Sakib and Rishad Hossain picked up two wickets each.

In reply, Bangladesh made a good start to the chase. Litton Das and Tanzid Hasan took the team's score to 27 runs after 4 overs. In the fifth over, Litton Das hit Hardik Pandya for the first six of the innings. However, Pandya had the last laugh as he dismissed the Bangladesh opener on the very next ball.

Litton walked across to hit the ball towards the leg side but was outfoxed by Pandya's slow delivery. As a result, Litton could not get the required force to clear the boundary and ended up hitting the ball straight to Suryakumar Yadav at square leg. And as soon as Suryakumar completed the catch, Rohit Sharma came up with an animated celebration and hurled abuse.

Watch the celebration from the India skipper:

Talking about the game, India were on 87 for 3 in the 13th over at the time of writing this report. Captain Najmul Hossain Shanto and former captain Shakib Al Hasan were batting in the middle for the Bangla Tigers.

Bangladesh started their Super 8 campaign with a loss against Australia and a defeat in the ongoing game will all but end their chances of making it to the semifinal. On the other hand, India started their campaign in the Super 8 with a win over Afghanistan, and a win against Bangladesh will very much seal their spot in the next round.
