Bangladesh v India

India won by 87 runs

10.5

Abdur Razzak to Tendulkar, OUT, a huge wicket for Bangladesh, Sachin Tendulkar is gone after an amateurish mix-up, Tendulkar tucked the ball towards wide mid-on, Shakib at midwicket dived and intercepted it, Tendulkar had sets off for the run immediately, Sehwag was ball watching and didn't respond to the Tendulkar, Tendulkar was also ball watching so both batsmen end up at the same end, Shakib throws the ball to the keeper, who takes off the bails and the crowd go bonkers

SR Tendulkar run out 28 (46m 29b 4x4 0x6) SR: 96.55

India 69/1   V Sehwag 36* (36b 5x4)   Abdur Razzak 3.5-0-20-0

23.2

Mahmudullah to Gambhir, OUT, soft dismissal, softer than a baby's bottom as they say! Gambhir gets a non-descript ball that lands back of a length on leg and middle, and straightens a touch. He looks to work it to the leg side, but was just a little loose in the execution. The ball sneaked through between bat and pad, to disturb the stumps. Mirpur finds its voice again. Interesting dismissal, it seemed to stay lower than Gambhir thought. In hidsight, he should have been on the front foot.

G Gambhir b Mahmudullah 39 (49m 39b 3x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

India 152/2   V Sehwag 79* (72b 7x4 1x6)   Mahmudullah 0.2-0-1-1

47.3

Shakib Al Hasan to Sehwag, OUT, end of an epic from Sehwag, he falls for the same legendary score that Kapil made on a 28 years ago, it was a fullish ball angling into Sehwag, he looked to carve it past point, gets a bottom edge onto the stump,s slight relief for Bangladesh, once again Sehwag can't play out 50 overs. doesn't matter, take a bow Sehwag.

V Sehwag b Shakib Al Hasan 175 (198m 140b 14x4 5x6) SR: 125.00

India 355/3   V Kohli 94* (78b 8x4 2x6)   Shakib Al Hasan 8.3-0-58-1

49.6

Shafiul Islam to Pathan, OUT, that's the end of the innings, Yusuf nicks the final ball to the keeper, India end on 370, though they got only 16 off the final three overs

YK Pathan c †Mushfiqur Rahim b Shafiul Islam 8 (10m 10b 0x4 0x6) SR: 80.00

India 370/4   V Kohli 100* (83b 8x4 2x6)   Shafiul Islam 7-0-69-1
