Well, once again, the Indian National Cricket Team looked like posting a moderate total on the board, however, then came the knock from Shreyas Iyer, which completely changed the complexion of the game. He was equally supported by the number 3 batsman KL Rahul, who finally scored a fifty to his name after a fine time.

Initially, it was Bangladesh skipper Mahamudullah Riyad, who won the toss, asked the home side to bat first. They have got the worst start with Rohit Sharma being knocked out for a cheap score. However, KL Rahul and Shikhar Dhawan took the charge in powerplay overs to give a fine start to the innings.

Just when things looked all set, Shikhar Dhawan was outfoxed by the slower ball of Shafiul Islam when Mahmudullah took a brilliant catch at long-on. Then came the beautiful partnership between Shreyas Iyer and KL Rahul, which made Bangladesh fielders chasing the leather more often than not.

Adding to the troubles, dew played its part as well. Though KL Rahul walked back soon after scoring a fifty, Shreyas Iyer knocked it brilliantly to put fans on edge of their seats. Iyer, who escaped being out on duck, took the chance with both hands to find the boundary fence more often than not.
