1st T20I: Mushfiqur Rahim Slams Unbeaten Fifty as Bangladesh Beat India by 7 Wickets to Take 1-0 Lead
Sun, 03 Nov 2019 10:55:18 pm
A win for Bangladesh at last. A win after 8 encounters. They came, they threatened, but could never pull it off. Finally, in November 2019, against a fairly weak Indian bowling line-up, Bangladesh have a win to show now against India in T20Is. It was not an easy deck to bat on and Bangladesh certainly struggled. They lost Liton Das early and even though Naim and Sarkar staged a partnership, it was not too quick. The next stand came between Rahim and Sarkar, whose partnership of 60 seemed like it was helping India more but then Rahim was dropped on 38 by Krunal Pandya and the game turned. Rahim then scored four successive boundaries in the next over and that was it.

First win for Bangladesh against India in nine T20Is
Sun, 03 Nov 2019 10:33:59 pm
Live Score and Updates IND vs BAN: SIX! Bangladesh creates history! They get into the history books in style. The young Dube cannot produce a miracle on his debut. Maybe it was asking too much from him. Length ball on off, Mahmudullah comes down the track and whacks his pull over the wide long-on fence for a maximum. Bangladesh (154/3 in 19.3 overs) beat India (148/6) to record their first-ever T20I win. Mushfiqur 60*, Soumya 39, Chahal 1/24
Sun, 03 Nov 2019 10:30:57 pm
FOUR! Just 4 needed off the last over now. Take a bow, Mushfiqur. The pocket-sized dynamo has blasted so hard that it has put the Delhi crowd on the silent mood. Length ball on off, Rahim looks to defend but gets a thick outside edge. It goes wide of backward point and bets him away to the fence. Bangladesh 145/3 in 19 overs vs India (148/6)
Sun, 03 Nov 2019 10:24:54 pm
Live Cricket Updates India vs Bangladesh: FOUR! The ever-so reliable Mushfiqur Rahim gets to his fifty in style. Subdued celebration may be a lesson he has learnt from the past. The job is near done but not done yet. He gets to his milestone in a brilliant fashion. Full-on middle and leg, Rahim manages to ramp it over on the leg side for a boundary. Bangladesh 141/3 in 18.5 overs, need 8 runs to win vs India (148/6)
Sun, 03 Nov 2019 10:21:45 pm
FOUR! Mushfiqur Rahim picks the slower ball well and manages to fetch himself a boundary. It is on a length, Mushfiqur waits and then picks his pull behind square on the leg side for a boundary. 16 needed now from 9. BAN 133/3 in 18.3 overs vs IND (148/6)
Sun, 03 Nov 2019 10:20:33 pm
FOUR! Fine way to end the over! Landed outside off, a fraction too short, Mahmudullah backs away and punches it wide of long-off. Substitute Manish Pandey gives it a good chase from long-off and dives to his left, almost pulling it back in but misses. 13 from the over, one which started brilliantly for Chahal but then ended horribly. Bangladesh 127/3 in 18 overs vs India (148/6)
Sun, 03 Nov 2019 10:17:40 pm
Live Updates IND vs BAN: DROPPED, FOUR! Oh dear... Krunal Pandya has made an absolute mess of a sitter here. Full and outside off, Rahim gets down and plays a slog sweep. But there is not much elevation and the ball goes straight to Krunal Pandya at deep mid-wicket. For some reason, Pandya leaps and the ball bursts through his hands. Bounces just in front of the boundary. BAN 120/3 in 17.3 overs, need 29 to win vs IND
Sun, 03 Nov 2019 10:13:10 pm
OUT! Khaleel Ahmed removes Soumya Sarkar for 39. Bowled! The over started against Khaleel but it has ended in Khaleel's favour. The off-cutter does the trick. It is on a length and it comes in off the deck too. Sarkar looks to dab it down to the third man. Not an ideal shot considering how close the ball was to the stumps. He misses and the ball goes onto hit off and middle. Bangladesh 114/3 in 17 overs, need 35 runs to win vs India (148/6)
Sun, 03 Nov 2019 10:06:47 pm
Live Cricket Updates: SIX! Absolutely thumped from Mushfiqur. A short ball into the head from Khaleel and Rahim almost falls over to the off-side hooking it high and mighty into the fine leg stand for six. Bangladesh 111/2 in 16.1 overs, need 38 runs to win vs India (148/6)
Sun, 03 Nov 2019 10:00:30 pm
Appeal but a hopeful one. Good length ball way outside off, Sarkar comes in and looks to ramp it over fine leg. The ball hits him on the pads and rolls over to the offside. The fielder has a shy at the bowler's end but misses. Had he hit Sarkar would have been in trouble.
Sun, 03 Nov 2019 09:57:47 pm
Live Cricket Updates IND vs BAN: SIX! High and handsome from Sarkar! Flighted on off, Sarkar comes down the track, gets to the pitch of the ball and demolishes it over long-off for a big six. Bangladesh 95/2 in 14 overs, need 54 runs to win vs India (148/6)
Sun, 03 Nov 2019 09:51:19 pm
Very good fielding from India's latest debutant - Shivam Dube. Floated around off, Sarkar hits it hard wide of long-off. Dube standing at wide long-off manages to keep it away from the ropes with a good dive. Two taken. Bangladesh 84/2 in 13.2 overs vs India (148/6)
Sun, 03 Nov 2019 09:44:08 pmFOUR! Mushfiqur goes after Chahal straightaway in this over. Flatter on middle and leg, Rahim gets down on one knee and sweeps it over short fine leg for a boundary. BAN 75/2 in 11.3 overs, need 74 runs to win vs IND (148/6)
Sun, 03 Nov 2019 09:39:53 pm
Live Cricket Score and Updates IND vs BAN: Review time! It is for a catch. Soumya Sarkar is the man in question. NOT OUT! Nothing on the Ultra Edge and India lose their sole review. Quicker and wide outside off, Sarkar looks to play but misses. Pant takes the ball behind the stumps and goes up in a very loud and confident appeal. Chahal is not as sure as Pant. Rishabh convinces Rohit to go upstairs. Replay rolls in and Ultra Edge shows no spike.
Sun, 03 Nov 2019 09:34:36 pm
FOUR! Excellent batting. Full and outside off, Rahim gets out the reverse sweep and makes a good connection. The ball flies over short third man. Bangladesh 61/2 in 9 overs vs India (148/6)
Sun, 03 Nov 2019 09:30:12 pm
Live Updates India vs Bangladesh: OUT! Yuzvendra Chahal removes Mohammad Naim for 26. Pressure. Three dot balls and that brought about this shot. Full and around off, nicely tossed up, Naim looks to play the slog sweep but skies this miles in the air. Shikhar Dhawan at long-on and someone from mid-wicket come for the catch but Gabbar calls for it and takes it nicely. Then does the Gabbar celebration, patting his left leg. The well-set Naim is gone. Bangladesh 54/2 in 8 overs, need 95 runs to win vs India (148/6)
Sun, 03 Nov 2019 09:20:01 pm
FOUR! Absolutely murdered, stunning shot by Sarkar. What a way to greet a new bowler. Soumya jumps out of his crease gets to the pitch of the length ball and crashes it through the covers. Rohit Sharma at short extra cover dives to his left but the ball is too quick for him. BAN 49/1 in 6.1 overs, need 100 to win vs IND
Sun, 03 Nov 2019 09:16:03 pm
Decent start by the tourists!
Sun, 03 Nov 2019 09:15:19 pm
Live Cricket Score IND vs BAN: SIX! Innovative from Soumya Sarkar. Full and around the middle, Sarkar brings out his reverse sweep and gets it miles over backward point. Bangladesh 38/1 in 5.1 overs, need 111 runs to win vs India (148/6)
Sun, 03 Nov 2019 09:12:54 pm
FOUR! MARVELLOUS! Half volley, too wide outside off, Naim reaches out and plays a full-blooded drive but with grace, wide of mid-off and to the left of cover. Bangladesh need 117 more from 91 balls now.
Sun, 03 Nov 2019 09:08:48 pm
Another tidy over from Sundar. It was down the leg side, Naim misses his flick and the ball goes off his pads to short third man. Sarkar charges down for the single but is sent back. Chahal at short third man looks to throw but Rohit Sharma at first slip comes in his way, who ducks just in time. Sundar then signals to Chahal to just calm down and not throw. BAN 20/1 in 4 overs, need 129 runs to win vs IND (148/6)
Sun, 03 Nov 2019 09:00:59 pm
In the air, but safe! Outside off, turning away, Naim looks to punch but is not in control. The ball goes between cover and point and the batsmen take a couple. Tidy start from Sundar - just 4 runs from the over. Bangladesh 13/1 in 2 overs, need 136 runs to win vs India (148/6)
Sun, 03 Nov 2019 08:59:36 pm
Live Score and Updates IND vs BAN: OUT! Deepak Chahar draws the first blood for the hosts. A bit of indecision for Liton Das. A length ball outside off, Das looks to punch but is not sure whether to go aerial or play it along the ground. In the end, just plays tame chip shot which finds KL moving to his left from cover. 141 needed from 115 balls.
Sun, 03 Nov 2019 08:53:42 pm
FOUR! Nicely done. Full and on middle, Liton Das flicks it through mid-wicket and the outfield does the rest. Bangladesh 6/0 in 0.2 overs vs India (148/6)
Sun, 03 Nov 2019 08:51:25 pm
IND vs BAN Live Updates: The players are back out in the middle. Liton Das and Mohammad Naim are the openers for Bangladesh. Deepak Chahar will bowl with the new ball first up.
Sun, 03 Nov 2019 08:50:06 pm
Spirited show by the Bangladesh bowlers!
Sun, 03 Nov 2019 08:49:23 pm
Momentum. How important is the word? Perhaps a lot. India were going nowhere with their innings in the first 18 overs but the last 12 balls might have just given them a fair chance in this game now. 155 is the average score in the first innings of the IPL this venue, so India definitely have a par score. A bizarre batting display by India. They never looked to set the tone once Rohit Sharma was dismissed early and only Shreyas Iyer injected some momentum in the innings. Shikhar Dhawan tried to stay till the end but was run out. In the end, as small but crucial partnership of 28 in just 10 balls saw the score reaching close to 150.
Sun, 03 Nov 2019 08:42:30 pm
Live Cricket Score and Updates IND vs BAN: A biggie to finish the innings! Short and around middle, Krunal pulls this into oblivion over mid-wicket! 30 runs from the final two overs and INDIA FINISH ON 148/6! India 148/6 in 20 overs vs Bangladesh in Delhi. Dhawan 41, Pant 27, Aminul 2/22, Shafiul 2/36
Sun, 03 Nov 2019 08:35:30 pm
SIX! Cracking shot from Washington Sundar. This was much needed for India. It was short from Shafiul, Sundar was right under the delivery as he hoisted the pull over wide long-on, 14 from the over. IND 132/6 in 19 overs vs BAN
Sun, 03 Nov 2019 08:33:50 pm
OUT! Shafiul Islam removes Rishabh Pant for 27. Rishabh has muscled one straight into the hands of Naim at long-on. The local boy just couldn't get going at all tonight, a sticky surface and the two-paced nature of the track not helping him at all. A length ball and he was looking to heave it over long-on, doesn't get enough bat on it and finds the fielder in the deep.India 120/6 in 18.2 overs vs Bangladesh
Sun, 03 Nov 2019 08:28:47 pm
Live Updates IND vs BAN: FOUR! Not quite how Rishabh Pant intended to, but definitely where he intended to. Pant looks to pull it over fine leg but is cramped for room. The ball takes the glove and goes over the keeper to the fence behind. India 116/5 in 17.3 overs vs Bangladesh
Sun, 03 Nov 2019 08:26:01 pm
FOUR! Outstanding batting from the left-hander. A short ball outside off, Pant cuts it beautifully and gets it behind point. IND 110/5 in 16.5 overs vs BAN
Sun, 03 Nov 2019 08:25:06 pm
Live Cricket Score and Updates IND vs BAN: OUT! What a catch from the young spinner. Afif Hossain removes debutant Shivam Dube for 1. A length ball, around the middle, Dube looks to work it to the leg side but is early into the shot. The ball holds onto the surface and hence, induces a leading edge. Lobs straight back and for a second, it seems like it will surpass the bowler. But young Afif leaps in the air sticks out his right hand and takes a blinder! India 102/5 in 16 overs vs Bangladesh
Sun, 03 Nov 2019 08:15:01 pm
OUT! Shikhar Dhawan departs for 41. Big wicket for the hosts as Dhawan takes a long walk back to the pavilion. Commotion out there. With these two running, a run-out was always on the cards and it comes out to be true. India 95/4 in 15 overs vs Bangladesh
Sun, 03 Nov 2019 08:10:07 pm
Live Updates IND vs BAN: SIX! Massive! Tossed up outside off from Mahmudullah, Dhawan comes down the track and sends it sailing over long-on. This was long pending for the home side. Crucial runs. India 92/3 in 14.2 overs vs Bangladesh
Sun, 03 Nov 2019 08:06:15 pm
FOUR! Much-needed boundary for Shikhar, 9 runs from the over. Just his third. A short ball, around middle, Dhawan swivels and pulls it through mid-wicket. India 83/3 in 13 overs vs Bangladesh
Sun, 03 Nov 2019 07:58:33 pm
India look for a steady partnership.
Sun, 03 Nov 2019 07:54:54 pm
Live Updates IND vs BAN: OUT! Aminul Islam removes Shreyas Iyer for 22. Iyer is dismissed after a cameo. Full and outside off, Shreyas backs himself to go inside out but while playing that shot, the bat turns in his hand a touch. Hence, he miscues his shot a touch. The ball goes high but does not quite have the legs. Mohammad Naim gets across from long-off to his left and makes it look really easy. India 73/3 in 11 overs vs Bangladesh
Sun, 03 Nov 2019 07:51:33 pm
Live Score and Updates IND vs BAN: FOUR! Outstanding placement. A full toss, around off, Iyer flicks it through mid-wicket. Mosaddek Hossain gets across to his left from deep mid-wicket while Mahmudullah gets across to his right from wide long-on. The latter dives but misses. India 67/2 in 9.5 overs vs Bangladesh
Sun, 03 Nov 2019 07:46:52 pm
SIX! HUMONGOUS! Shreyas Iyer is looking in mood today, he means business. Full and outside off from Islam, Shreyas gets under it and hammers it straight back over the bowler, over the sightscreen. India 60/2 in 9 overs vs Bangladesh
Sun, 03 Nov 2019 07:40:14 pm
Live Updates IND vs BAN: SIX! MAJESTIC! This was what Shreyas Iyer was trying on the fourth ball of this over. Still, pretty audacious given the time he has spent at the crease. Tossed up wide outside off, Iyer leans and lofts it over cover. The ball gathers pace and then goes into space beyond the cover boundary. India 44/2 in 7 overs vs Bangladesh
Sun, 03 Nov 2019 07:39:26 pm
Big scalp for the teenager!
Sun, 03 Nov 2019 07:38:45 pm
Live Score and Updates IND vs BAN: OUT! Aminul Islam removes KL Rahul for 15. Caught! Soft dismissal. Short and outside off, Rahul looks to cut but is surprised by the massive turn. Looks to check his shot and ends up spooning a simple catch to Mahmudullah at short extra cover. Another waste of an innings for Rahul. India 36/2 in 6.3 overs vs Bangladesh
Sun, 03 Nov 2019 07:29:15 pm
IND vs BAN Live Updates: FOUR! A boundary after 14 balls. Short and outside off from Mustafizur Rahman, Shikhar Dhawan cuts it through point and the ball races away! India 29/1 in 5 overs vs Bangladesh
Sun, 03 Nov 2019 07:19:39 pm
FOUR! Lovely shot. On a length outside off, Rahul punches this on the up, through the covers and finds the gap. Important runs for the hosts. India 18/1 in 2.4 overs vs Bangladesh

Live Score and updates IND vs BAN: OUT! LBW! Shaiful Islam removes Rohit Sharma for 9. The Indian skipper has been adjudged plumb in front. He has a chat with Dhawan though and then takes the review. Looks close to the naked eye. Was height an issue? Clipping the top of the stumps. India 10/1 in 1 over vs Bangladesh
Sun, 03 Nov 2019 07:10:49 pm
FOUR! Rohit Sharma goes past Virat Kohli, he's now the highest run-getter in T20Is. He punches the length delivery with his elegance through extra cover, brilliant shot by the Indian skipper. IND 10/0 in 0.5 overs vs BAN

IND vs BAN Live Score and Updates: FOUR! Runs straight away for India! Shafiul starts with a poor ball down the leg side, Rohit in the form that he is in, just flicks it towards the fine leg region for the first boundary of the game. India 4/0 in 0.1 overs vs Bangladesh

Live Score and Updates IND vs BAN: Rohit Sharma says, "We would have bowled first as well considering the dew factor here. Our record chasing is good as well. Nevertheless, we want to change ourselves, that has been a concern over the years. Batting first and defending it later. The pitch looks slightly sticky, we need to assess and see what will be a fighting score. We have to win every game, we have to look forward to build a team. This gives us an opportunity to test out few players from the domestic circuit, they have done well. It's their best chance to grab the opportunity. We are trying to stick with the same combination that we have had in this part of the world. We have three spinners, two medium pacers and we have the debutant Shivam Dube who gives us the extra choice in the middle where he can bowl few overs".

IND vs BAN Live Cricket Score: Hello and welcome to our live cricket blog of the first T20I between India and Bangladesh at the Arun Jaitley Stadium, Delhi.
India vs Bangladesh, 1st T20I, New Delhi.
The youngsters on the fringes will line up for another ICC T20 World Cup audition while a few seniors will try to get back into the groove when firm-favourite India take on Bangladesh in the smog-hit series-opener in Delhi on Sunday.
Questions have been raised over the rationale behind hosting the match in Delhi at a time when the national capital is battling post-Diwali air pollution but the BCCI ruled out shifting the tie at the last minute due to logistic issues. Bangladesh are not complaining but pollution, the resultant health concerns and the ban imposed on Bangladesh s iconic all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan just before the tour has definitely hogged more limelight in the build-up to the three-match series.
Bangladesh s tour of India kicks off on Sunday, when they face each other in the first T20I at Delhi s Arun Jaitley Stadium. Despite growing pollution in the city, the match has received the go-ahead. Without Shakib Al Hasan, Bangladesh will miss a vital player but skipper Mahmudullah has backed the younger crop of players to stand and delivery. Rohit Sharma, India s stand-in skipper, believes Bangladesh can beat , not upset a team.
IND vs BAN Predicted 11.
India: Rohit Sharma (c), Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Rishabh Pant (wk), Shreyas Iyer, Shivam Dube, Krunal Pandya, Washington Sundar, Deepak Chahar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Khaleel Ahmed.
Bangladesh: Liton Das, Soumya Sarkar, Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), Mahmudullah (c), Mohammad Naim, Sabbir Rahman, Afif Hossain, Mosaddek Hossain, Shafiul Islam, Mustafizur Rahman, Abu Haider.
