T20 World Cup: Bangladesh off to a good start vs India

Bangladesh made a good start in their fourth match in the Super 12 stage of the ongoing T20 World Cup 2022 in Adelaide against India.

 

Hasan Mahmud, the right-arm pacer, sent Rohit Sharma back early in the innings. After the powerplay, 37 for one with Virat Kohli (13) and Lokesh Rahul (21) are unbeaten at the crease.

 

Right before taking the wicket of Rohit, Hasan missed a dolly at the boundary area when Rohit played Taskin Ahmed.

 

Bangladesh made one change to their playing XI bringing in Shoriful Islam replacing Soumya Sarkar.

 

Soumya, the left-handed opener, played all three matches before today but failed to prove his mettle. He got good starts, but he couldn’t capitalize on those starts.

 

Shoriful, the left-arm seamer, has played 28 T20Is and bagged 32 wickets so far.

 

This is the first time Bangladesh are playing a T20I match in Adelaide.

 

Bangladesh won their first match against the Netherlands but lost to South Africa before registering a win against Zimbabwe.

 

India lost to South Africa before taking on Bangladesh today.

 

Before this match, Bangladesh and India took on each other in 11 T20Is with Bangladesh winning only one of those matches.
