Iyer and Pant started with a counter-attack and then maintained the run rate to take India past Bangladesh’s total. Pant eventually got out for 93 off 104 balls, the sixth time in his career he has fallen into the 90s. Pant pushed at Mehidy Hasan Miraz’s full-length delivery and got an outside edge before the ball reached Nurul.
