India’s leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal didn’t hold back after dismissing Bangladesh wicketkeeper-batsman Mushfiqur Rahim. Chahal gave a send-off to the right-hander when he celebrated the dismissal with Indian skipper Virat Kohli. Mushfiqur Rahim went for the sweep against the leg-spinner but could not keep his shot to the ground.
Thus, Mohammed Shami took a simple catch at square-leg. It was a huge wicket for India as Rahim and Shakib Al Hasan were building a good partnership. The two veteran batsman had added 47 runs for the third wicket and it was not looking good for India.
In fact, Rahim has the skills to bat big for the Tigers and it was a much-needed breakthrough for the Indian side. Rahim has been Bangladesh’s second best batsman as he has amassed 351 runs in the seven matches of the tournament. On the other hand, it was the first wicket of the day for Yuzvendra Chahal.
Meanwhile, India has posted a competitive score of 314 runs after Virat Kohli won the toss and decided to bat first. Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul provided the strong foundation as the right-handers added 180 runs for the opening partnership. Rohit Sharma was able to get off the blocks and scored his fourth hundred of the ongoing ICC World Cup.
Furthermore, KL Rahul scored a good knock of 77 runs. However, India’s middle order once again could not get going despite a great start by the openers. In fact, India was looking good for a massive score but Bangladesh was able to pull back things in the death overs.
It is a must-win match for Bangladesh as they are in a do or die situation. On the other side, India also needs a win to confirm their semifinal qualification.
