India vs Bangladesh Cricket Score 5th T20, Nidahas Trophy: Bangladesh won the toss and chose to bowl first in the fifth match the Nidahas Trophy, against India. All four games so far have been won by chasing sides. Rohit Sharma, India’s captain, said he was thinking about batting first nevertheless. Both teams have made a change on the fast-bowling front. India’s Jaydev Unadkat finds himself left out in favor of Mohammed Siraj, who played two T20s for India towards the end of last year. Bangladesh, meanwhile, have dropped Taskin Ahmed, who had conceded 68 runs in six overs in the tournament so far, for left-armer Abu Hider. This will be Hider’s sixth T20 international. Rohit was in spectacular for he scored 89 runs and Suresh Raina’s 47.
Here are India vs Bangladesh 5th T20I Cricket Score and Updates:
10:20 pm: India beat Bangladesh.
10:18 pm: or all the potential, Siraj has average economy over 12 across games with just 1 wicket. and no signs of improvement. Ind have to start counselling him better or looking away from him.
10:15 pm: Paddle sweep – Sachin, Scoop – Dilshan, Banana swing – Waqar, Upper Cut – Sehwag, 360 – ABD, Switch hit – KP, Slow Bouncer – Pollock, 2 seperate bouncers – Andy Robers. Now, Who do we credit the knuckle ball to?” — The first person I noticed use it was Chaminda Vaas long back. And Andrew Tye, more recently.
10:06 pm: Thakur to Sabbir Rahman, OUT, breaks the partnership! Rattles off stump. Good length just outside off, another wild leg-side swing from the batsman and the ball goes under his bat. Breaks the top of off, and Thakur gives out a big scream.
9:59 pm: Karthik communicating to Vijay and Washington in Tamil… Looks like gully cricket in Chennai .
9:38 pm: Credit to Dravid & India U19 management for identifying that Sundar will benefit more from playing domestic rather than going for U19 WC earlier this year for which he was eligible. It certainly accelerated his journey to senior side.
9:28 pm: In hindsight, we can see how mature the Indian innings was. Not losing the wkts early, and a late flourish fro Rohit-Raina. BD crumbling makes those innings look even more exceptional.
9:22 pm: Surely playing Washington Sundar in India’s full strength T20 team would only strengthen it further. Washington and Bhuvi to bowl the first 6. Bumrah and Thakur (who is quality at the death) to end the innings, and Pandya with one of the wrist spinners in the middle. 6 quality bowlers who can all bowl 4 given the match situation.
9:20 pm: Shankar to Mahmudullah, no run, a full delivery outside off, Mahmudullah gets forward and pushes the ball to cover.
9:16 pm: To chase down 177 successfully requires that each batsman ideally scores at an SR of 147. Despite all his hitting, Tamim’s eventual SR was 142, i.e. job not done.
9:06 pm: Washington Sundar to Soumya Sarkar, OUT, a wild heave from Sarkar. Not very good batting, it’s a dart again. Sarkar heaves across the line, he’s nowhere near the ball. The ball finds a big gap between bat and pad, and goes through to hit leg stump.
9:00 pm: Washington Sundar to Liton Das, OUT, sees him coming again and bowls it wider and much shorter! Lovely piece of spin bowling. Liton somehow chooses the worst possible shot, opting to work the ball from well outside off. He wasn’t close to the pitch nor was he adept at improvisation. So the ball went through a big gap between bat and pad. Karthik does the rest.
8:36 pm: Rubel Hossain to Sharma, OUT, yorker on off stump. Smacked back to Rubel, and he sticks his hand out. That stops the ball, but the batsmen want the single anyway. Harakiri, eventually. Rubel collects the ball, and walks across to the non-striker’s end to run Rohit out. India finish on 176 for 3.
8:31 pm: Rubel Hossain to Raina, OUT, misses out on the fifty! Full on leg stump, and flicked off his pads to the leg side. It’s hit uppishly, but doesn’t have the distance. Taken at cow corner.
8:28 pm: In the last two overs India has scored 32 runs. And with that Suresh Raina is Out.
8:25 pm: Rohit Sharma is thrashing Bangladesh bowlers as if it is some kind of gully cricket- every third ball is sent over the ropes.
8:23 pm: Abu Hider to Sharma, SIX runs, Twenty one off the over! Hider’s been hammered this over. He hasn’t bowled too well either. This is a full toss outside off stump and Rohit’s got the liberty to free his arms. Pulled over deep midwicket once again! Real stand-and-deliver stuff from the India captain.
8:20 pm: The strategy for Rohit and Raina should definitely be hit out or get out for remaining 18-20 balls! Many hitters waiting in line.
8:14 pm: Amazing confidence shown by the Indian captain on his bowlers to defend 170-180 scoreline against a team high on chasing 215 the other day.
8:07 pm: 32 dot balls in just 14 overs. There has been talk about dot balls and they said if there are more that 30 dot balls in an inning of t20 match then it is not a great inning.
7:53 pm: I think it is Rohit’s master plan to challenge his bowlers defend a smaller target.
7:48 pm: Rubel Hossain to Dhawan, OUT, superb delivery! 143 kph yorker on middle. Dhawan misses, Rubel uproots middle stump! Did that reverse just a touch? Full on middle, Dhawan backed away, made room for himself and just plain misses his drive. A stare from Rubel.
7:41 pm: It’s a slow start from India, but it’s also a good bowling effort. Just one extra has been gifted to India. This, in spite of the bowlers not getting a chance to get into a rhythm.
7:36 pm: I feel India’s Gung-ho strategy is still there, it’s just that Ban have bowled decently but still India is going at over 8 rpo. Also, Rohit’s slowness shouldn’t bother anyone. As long as he is there and gets some confidence, he can score some real big hits.
7:20 pm: So after experimenting with a helter skelter approach in last few t20s including in SA, india has reverted back to its build the innings slowly method. Maybe it is just because of brittleness of last few matches, and won’t last in future-would be interesting to watch.
7:15 pm: I personally feel it’s not Dhawan’s or anyone’s responsibility to cover Rohit. Rohit is experienced enough to realize where he’s going wrong without having to put extra burden or additional responsibilities on other batsmen.
7:10 pm: Today would have been the best chance to play Deepak Hooda ahead of Washington Sundar who has kind of proved himself already! An all-rounder with big hitting abilities is always welcome for no 7.
7:04 pm: The new ball is swinging alot and somehow Sharma survived Abu Rony Hider’s first over.
6:47 pm: Good change to have Siraj instead of predictable Unadkat but it won’t be easy for Siraj either who did not have memorable debut the last time he played. Hope he does well.
6:32 pm: Mahmudullah opts to bowl first, Rohit Sharma makes changes in the playing 11. Mohammed Siraj included while Jaydev Unadkat has been rested.
Pitch and conditions
6:28 pm: Rain continues to be forecast in Colombo, with Bangladesh already talking about being mentally prepared for a stop-start game. The pitch is to remain the same, mostly batting-friendly. It the third time this has been done in the ongoing series. A total of 180 runs would be a good total.
6:22 pm: Stats and trivia
- In Monday’s game against Sri Lanka, KL Rahul became the first Indian batsman to be out hit wicket in a T20I.
- Despite career economy rate of 9.74, Rubel Hossain remains one of the most reliable bowlers in T20s for Bangladesh.
