India succumbed to their first defeat against Bangladesh in T20I cricket after the visitors chased down a target of 149 with 7 wickets in hand in the 1st T20I in New Delhi on Sunday.
With this win, the Tigers have taken a 1-0 lead in the three-match series. This is the first time in nine matches that Bangladesh have managed to beat India in a T20I.
Only one other team took as many matches before registering their maiden T20I win against an opponent – Zimbabwe against Afghanistan.
Here are the best reactions from the match-
Another defeat batting first. I think India tend to be too conservative upfront, something they cannot afford to be in a run chase.

Meanwhile, speaking at the post-match presentation, Mushfiqur Rahim, man of the match said: “When we were playing in front of a huge crowd, and when the team needs it, nothing like playing an innings like that. Nothing like beating India in India, so this means a lot to me. Soumya and I had a chat, and we thought of dragging the game deep, and any of the quicks could have been targeted for 15-20 in an over because the spinners got a lot of assistance so it was hard to hit them. Naim also played really well at the start. I’m trying my best to evolve as a cricketer, and I will try to perform in each and every game for Bangladesh.”
