We will be back with the chase in about 20 minutes. Stay tuned.

India have a lot of room for improvement, and the same could be said of the hockey team as well. Despite qualifying for the Tokyo Olympics next year, the side has a lot of tweaking to do before they can compete at the highest level. Click here to read more.

8.35pm So, 30 runs from the last two overs have helped India to 148 for 6 after a sluggish start. Dhawan was the top-scorer with 41 but consumed 42 balls for it. The Bangladesh bowlers used the variations well to make the run-scoring difficult. Those late hits from Washington and Krunal mean India has got the momentum but do they also have a winning total?

"We came here, practised for three days, adjusted to the conditions and applied," Afif says. "149 is a chaseable score. If we start well, we should be able to chase it."
