World T20 - 24th match, Group 2

Bangladesh v India

India won by 8 wickets (with 9 balls remaining)

Tamim Iqbal and Anamul Haque 'Bijoy' walk in to loud cheers from home fans.. India are all set already. It will be Tamim against Bhuvneshwar first up.

vennu: "For Bangladesh to stay in this race.. they essentially need to win this game. If they happen to pull of this miracle.. then this group opens wide up for interesting possibilities. Considering India's upcomming match against Australia.. REALLY interesting possibilities"

7.33 pm Time for the two national anthems, both written by the same man - Rabindranath Tagore. Here is Abhishek Purohit, our roving reporter in Dhaka, on his connection with Amar Sonar Bangla, the Bangladeshi national anthem

7.10 pm India win the toss again and Dhoni chooses to field again. No changes to India's line-up, means no Rahane and Yuvraj gets another game. He says there is no change in his reasoning for choosing the option. Mushfiqur says he is bringing back Shamsur and Nasir in the team after saying the team needs to improve in all departments.

Maf: "As a Bangladeshi fan what worries me is that the mindset of Bangladeshi player . I personally think tha they are not in it to win it, they have already accepted defeat even before the match starts , also self belief isn't there at all , body language of the captain in press conference didn't send positive vibes ... Not encouraging .."

7.05 pm The match will start ten minutes after the scheduled time, that is 7.40 pm local time and that is due to the slightly late finish of the previous game. That means everything gets pushed by 10 minutes..

"I hope Bangladesh win today just to open up the group and give Bangla fans some joy for showing up to matches day in day out," says Baz

6.45 pm Friday. High stakes game for home team. Against the strong neighbours. And a full house. It's a box-office money-raker in Dhaka tonight as Bangladesh take on India. With two consecutive losses, the home team is yet to arrive in the tournament. More than the losses, what has hurt is the ease with which they disintegrated. The home crowd, however, is behind them again and they have three games remaining. The house is full. India, on the other hand, have had a smooth start to the tournament, courtesy two match-winning spells by the leggie Amit Mishra, who till not too long ago, was not considered worth a place in the XI. But their batting hasn't been tested, with big question marks lingering over the form of Yuvraj Singh.. Is he playing? Well, we'll soon find out..Welcome to our coverage.. 15 minutes to go for toss. Here's the preview while you wait.

WOW! Darren Sammy, take a bow.. What strikes! That West Indies v Aus game has set some standard now.."After that win by West Indies , all India need is a win today and they are thru to the Semis !! Australia have lost 2 and WI play PAK and one of them has got to lose," that's right Pravin.

Kumar to Anamul Haque, FOUR, on the pads and now he picks another boundary! Supple wrists they say, that's what makes this short so sweet.. Just a neat flick and it races to the deep square leg boundary

Excellent start for Bangladesh.. three runs is all Bhuvi gave away in the last match.. three boundaries now

Shami comes in!

2.1

Mohammed Shami to Anamul Haque, no run, Dhawan gives a big big life to Tamim! This is outrageous from the fielder, he misses a chance to run out Tamim from a close range. The batsman pushed it towards mid-on, but Tamim set off immediately..Dhawan had all the time to hit the stumps as Tamim had give up completely.. He misses

2.5

Mohammed Shami to Anamul Haque, 1 wide, that's one sharp bouncer! The batsman looks to hook it but that was too quick for him. That's also called a wide now

2.5

Mohammed Shami to Anamul Haque, no run, he has played two good shots but now goes for a rash one! Tries to send this over deep midwicket but the length is not there for that shot.. It goes over the top of off

2.6

Mohammed Shami to Anamul Haque, no run, he stays in the crease and defends the length delivery towards cover point

Zaid Noorsumar: "It's not that Dhawan missed the stumps; what's bizzare is that he had enough time to Gangnam style his way to the stumps, pull a starman and then casually knock the bails off - and Tamim still wouldn't have made it. Instead he chose to go for a throw..."

End of over 3 (5 runs) Bangladesh 20/0 (RR: 6.66)
Anamul Haque    13* (10b 3x4)      Mohammed Shami    1-0-5-0

3.1

Ashwin to Tamim Iqbal, no run, flatter and on off stump, the batsman goes back and punches it to mid off

3.2

Ashwin to Tamim Iqbal, OUT, caught at slip! Tamim doesn't make much of his life.. Ashwin tosses this one up nicely. It is slow, dips and bites the surface to turn a touch. The batsman comes forward to push it to off and gets a thick outside edge that Raina pouches safely.. The umpires were not sure if that was taken cleanly as this was a low catch, but Tamim started walking straightaway

Tamim Iqbal c Raina b Ashwin 6 (14m 10b 1x4 0x6) SR: 60.00

Shamsur Rahman is the new man..

3.3

Ashwin to Shamsur Rahman, OUT, make it two in two! What are you doing Shamsur! He has just come in but looks to send this into the stands..Goes down on his knee and plays a sweep in the air, but there is man placed at deep square leg exactly for that shot. He doesn't have to move an inch as it flies straight to him.. What a disastrous shot to play when you are making a comeback into the side

Shamsur Rahman c Sharma b Ashwin 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Shakib is the new man.. to face the hat-trick ball. Two slips for him

3.4

Ashwin to Shakib Al Hasan, 1 run, full and on the pads, it's neatly tucked to square leg for a single

CricFan: "I used to be a great fan of Tamim but I honestly cannot remember the last time he played a worth innings..."

3.5

Ashwin to Anamul Haque, no run, slower and tossed up, the batsman has to wait before defending it to midwicket

3.6

Ashwin to Anamul Haque, no run, a bit of drift for the bowler, the batsman comes a touch forward and defends

Bhuvi is back..

4.1

Kumar to Shakib Al Hasan, OUT, and he strikes first ball! Shakib is gone now.. It's not a bowler's wicket this one.. Bangladesh needed their best batsman to be there, but all he does is he walks down the pitch but plays a shot of no intent. It's neither a defensive push, nor aggressive.. the ball deviates just enough to get the inside edge on to his pads before it rolls into the stumps..

Shakib Al Hasan b Kumar 1 (3m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Mushfiqur Rahim is already in..

4.2

Ravindra Jadeja comes in early..

9.2

Mishra to Mushfiqur Rahim, 1 run, flatter on off, the batsman goes back and works it away to the leg side for a single

jatin: "Now please help me understand this.. Kumar bowls a 1 run over.. B'desh are in a disarray and Dhoni turns to his part timers from both ends.. why? He saw this game may go down the drain, so atleast let's have a challenging target? Let the batsmen settle...."

10.2

Mohammed Shami to Anamul Haque, no run, back of length delivery on off, the batsman gets right behind the line and defends it down the pitch

10.3

Mohammed Shami to Anamul Haque, SIX, What. A. Shot. That. is! First six for Bangladesh.. He moves out of the crease smoothly, creates room and whips it over extra cover.. That is a stylish shot for a six..It's a big one too

Bhuvneshwar comes back..

18.1

Kumar to Nasir Hossain, FOUR, looks for a yorker but it's a low full toss outside off, Nasir just has to punch it in the gap, which he does.. He creams it through extra cover

Dinesh: "Indian bowlers are back to do what they are good at. Bangladesh would cross 150 easily with this bowling attack. Might be a tricky chase given bangladesh's better spin bowling. Dhoni is no match to many professional wicketkeepers. Look how Haddin took the catch today, have never seen dhoni do it before."

18.2

Kumar to Nasir Hossain, no run, a nice yorker outside off, the batsman looks to carve it behind point but makes no contact

18.3

Kumar to Nasir Hossain, no run, a good leg cutter from Bhuvi! The batsman looks to launch it over the off side but is beaten by the little away movement

18.4

Kumar to Nasir Hossain, 1 run, fuller delivery on off, the batsman is not able to get under it, drives it down the ground to long off

18.5

Kumar to Mahmudullah, 1 run, it's another low full toss on the middle stump, Mahmudllah whips it to deep midwicket for a single

18.6

Kumar to Nasir Hossain, 1 run, slower delivery, but this is too short, allows the batsman to wait and punch it to deep cover for a single

End of over 19 (7 runs) Bangladesh 131/5 (RR: 6.89)
Nasir Hossain    16* (16b 1x4)      B Kumar    3-0-21-1
Mahmudullah    32* (21b 5x4 1x6)      Mohammed Shami    3-0-29-1

Mishra comes in to bowl the last over

19.1

Mishra to Nasir Hossain, OUT, completely beaten! By pace, by flight, by turn.. this is an action replay of the Samuels or the Shahzad wicket from previous nights... The batsman comes out of the crease to the flighted delivery, but it is bowled slow, it lands much shorter than the batsman expects, then turns a mile to beat the outside edge..

Nasir Hossain st †Dhoni b Mishra 16 (31m 17b 1x4 0x6) SR: 94.11

Ziaur Rahman comes in

19.2

Mishra to Ziaur Rahman, OUT, he is quickly going up the table! Tossed up and full outside off, the batsman looks to whack it over long off, but is not able to get under it.. ends up scooping an easy chance to Jadeja at long off..

Ziaur Rahman c Jadeja b Mishra 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Hat-trick chance for Mishra again

19.3

Mishra to Mahmudullah, no run, he backs away to the leg side but misses the big legspinner.. it turns away a mile..

19.4

Mishra to Mahmudullah, 1 run, it's a low full toss, the batsman whips it to deep midwicket for a single

19.5

Mishra to Mashrafe Mortaza, no run, wow! So much air on this one..lures the batsman into a big heave, but he misses it completely as it turns past the edge

19.6

Mishra to Mashrafe Mortaza, SIX, that's a great way to finish! This is too full and Mashrafe gets the right length to get under.. He is a powerful man, whacks it over deep midwicket easily

Bangladesh didn't have the best of the starts, losing their big three cheaply. There will be more questions on the choice of shots from the three.. But Anamul Haque played some attractive shots to make sure the runs kept coming.. He looked set for a fifty, but was beaten by a good delivery from Mishra.. Mahmudullah's hits towards the end ensured Bangladesh have something to defend.. Back in ten

khurram: "Indian bowling never let any team cross 140 in this tournament, I think everyone should stop saying that only batting is their strength. "

Rishad DSouza: "If India do win this, there's a good chance A Mishra may bag another MoM. It'll be phenomenal for some one who's been resting his laurels on the sidelines to finally get his well deserved chance and make the most of it by bagging 3 MoM awards."

Saad: "This humble looking Mishra is really showing some international class, he has been the real difference throughout this tournament, and the reason for india to have boring encounters unlike other nail biters in the tournament, but they would be happy about it."

srikanth: "This bowling attack suits this present conditions and they are making good use of the pitches but i dont think India will be a good or strong bowling unit considering the 2015 world cup then definitely batting will be our strength.Batting is our strength and will remain strength we dont have any dale steyn type bowlers who can bowl in any conditions... "
