India vs Bangladesh ODI, KL Rahul turns villain from hero
There was one exception to a brilliant batting display by Jha, which bundled India out for 186 against a Bangladesh attack led by Bangladesh bowler Shakib Al Hasan (5/36) in the first ODI on Sunday. But at the end of the match, KL Rahul proved to be the villain. Rahul dropped a simple catch and after that Bangladesh won the match easily with a 10th-wicket partnership and India suffered a humiliating defeat.
Earlier, Rahul scored an impressive 73 off 70 balls in a match when the rest of the players were struggling for runs and when the team was packed with all-rounders. Rahul hit five fours and four sixes. India’s innings lasted 41.2 overs.
Opting to field, Mustafizur Rahman started with a maiden over, before India captain Rohit Sharma smashed the ball through the gap between point and cover to Hasan Mahmood to start the visitors’ boundary count. Of.
Shikhar Dhawan gets his first boundary by sending the ball over cover. Bangladesh captain Liton Das changed the opening bowling in the fourth over by bringing in off-spinner Mehidy Hasan Miraj and he started well before dismissing Dhawan for seven.
The opener went for the reverse sweep but the ball bounced slightly higher than usual and touched his wrist before hitting the stumps. Rohit hit his first six of the series when he pulled Mahmood over deep square leg when the medium pacer bowled on his pads.
The Indian skipper again finds the deep square leg region but this time sweeps it against Miraj for a boundary. Rohit then picks the off-side and cuts Mahmood along the ground for a boundary after being given a fairly short ball.
It was then Virat Kohli’s turn to pick out the deep square leg region as the former skipper hit Miraj for a boundary. Liton made another change to the bowling, calling on the experienced Shakib, and again he was promptly rewarded with a fine delivery by the star all-rounder.
After getting off to a decent start, Rohit (27 off 31 balls) went for the turn but the ball didn’t turn, and instead took an inside edge before troubling the middle and leg stump. There was double and more joy for the hosts now, as two balls later, the left-arm spinner sent back Kohli (9) after Liton took an incredible catch at cover, diving full length and leaving Kohli stunned. went and left the crowd behind. The crowd at the Shere Bangla National Stadium went berserk.
At 49 for three in the 11th over, India needed a partnership. KL Rahul kept on scoring in the middle with Shreyas Iyer (24) but was later dismissed by Abadot Hossain (4/47), who was rewarded for bowling what worked best against Iyer Gone – short-pitch type stuff.
With the short 43-run partnership coming to an end, Washington Sundar (19) came in and helped Rahul build the partnership. However, the pair could not add more than 60 runs as, shortly after Rahul reached his half-century, Washington picked off a fielder while trying to play a reverse sweep against Shakib.
In the next over, Ebadot sent back Shahbaz Ahmed and Shakib and then dismissed Shardul Thakur and Deepak Chahar to leave India reeling at 186 for eight.
