At Fatullah, February 26, 2014 (day/night). India won by six wickets. India 4pts. Toss: India.
India's victory followed a familiar pattern, with Kohli scoring a century to marshal another runchase. But for a while it looked as if Bangladesh might make them work hard for their win, after Mushfiqur Rahim, who made 117 off 113 balls, put on 133 with Anamul Haque for the third wicket. Anamul was particularly severe on Varun Aaron, the fast bowler recently restored to the Indian side after two years; now he would be dropped again after going for 74 in 7.5 overs, and his stint ended when a second beamer hit Mushfiqur around his armpit (Kohli completed the 39th over).
Mohammed Shami kept the total in check, then Kohli took over after India's openers had made a solid start. His 19th one-day century was his 12th in a successful chase (only Sachin Tendulkar had made more, with 14), and pushed his average in such situations over 85. Kohli was well supported in a partnership of 213 in 33 overs by Rahane, whose inside-out shots caught the eye. This was only the second one day international in which both captains scored hundreds, after Ireland (William Porterfield) against England (Eoin Morgan) in Dublin in September 2013.
Man of the Match: V. Kohli.
