ICC World Cup Match 40 - India Face Bangladesh

Officially in the final fortnight of the 2019 ICC World Cup and in India’s penultimate match of the group stage they’re playing Bangladesh today at Edgbaston.

A victory today will ensure Virat Kohli’s team a spot in the semi-finals. Currently placed second in the standings, India has 11 points from seven games after being handed their first defeat of the tournament by England on Sunday.

However, if Bangladesh come out on top, they can move level with fifth-place Pakistan on nine points — one point behind fourth-place England. A defeat will end their semi-final hopes.

Bangladesh and Pakistan meet in their last group game at Lord's on Friday. India's final group match is against Sri Lanka at Headingley on Saturday.

India vs Bangladesh Head-to-Head

Bangladesh and India have met once before in an ODI at Edgbaston when India won by nine wickets in the 2017 Champions Trophy with big scores from Rohit Sharma and Kohli.

India vs Bangladesh: Mortaza Positive

On the eve of the match, Bangladesh’s skipper Mashrafe Mortaza came for the pre-match press conference and said his brief to the players is to stay calm amidst hype surrounding the India clash which will decide his team's fate in the World Cup.

"It is very important to stay cool. Hype is such that it becomes difficult for each player to stay calm. It is important to do the things we do on the field properly. Initially nerves play a role and it's important to control nerves in the beginning. It is better to stay away from outside pressures," said the skipper.

KEY EVENT

Ind vs Ban Live Score: Rohit-Rahul Open

Lots of talk about maybe asking Rishabh Pant to open but once again it’s Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul walking out to start the Indian innings.

Virat Kohli mentioned the short boundary at the toss (as he did after the game against England) and Rohit Sharma makes use of it in the first over itself as he hits Mashrafe Mortaza for a maximum off the fifth ball.

India 10/1 after 1 over

Ind vs Ban Live Score: Slow Start

Mohammad Saifuddin, Mustafizur Rahman and Mustafizur ‘The Fizz’ Rahman utilising the new ball and after that big opening over, India’s picked up just a run and then 3 from the second and third overs.

Saifuddin is hit for a boundary by Rahul in the fourth over though to break the monotony.

India 18/0 after 4 overs

KEY EVENT

Ind vs Ban Live Score: Rohit Dropped

Is Rohit Sharma the most ‘dropped’ cricketer at this World Cup or what? Drop as in a catch dropped, as in once again, as in in today’s match as well.

Dropped early in his innings against England on Sunday, Rohit’s been given a lifeline on 9 off Mustafizur Rahman’s delivery. The culprit this time is Tamim Iqbal and there really is no excuse as it was a borderline sitter.

India 21/0 after 5 overs

Ind vs Ban Live Score: India 36/0 After 7 Overs

Rohit Sharma’s on 23 and KL Rahul’s on 11 as India already have more on the board than they did against England after 10 over.

36/0 but more importantly, Rohit Sharma is back. Not the one who made the hesitant start against England but the one who’s dealing in fours and sixes with ease.

Ind vs Ban Live Score: Top Powerplay Score

Rohit Sharma hits the second ball of the over for a boundary and at 57/0 India have their highest powerplay score of the World Cup so far. This, after their 28/0 on Sunday was their lowest of the tournament.

Bangladesh skipper Mashrafe Mortaza returns to bowl the 10th over after he bowled the first and conceded 10.

Not different treatment from Rohit and Rahul now either though as they both hit him for a boundary each. 10 runs from the over.

India 69/0 after 10 overs

Ind vs Ban Live Score: Shakib Slows it Down

Mashrafe Mortaza introducer Shakib’s spin to the attack and Bangladesh finally see a few quiet overs from India. Mortaza bowls one in between the two Shakib overs and the three collectively concede 5 runs.

Ind vs Ban Live Score: Shakib Keeps it Tight

Most overs reaping 9s and 10s for India but Bangladesh bring on Shakib Al Hasan and once again things slow down. Just the 2 runs from the 17th over as KL Rahul now nears his half century, at 42.

India 99/0 after 17 overs

“Surprised to see both teams playing an extra seam bowler. The dimensions may be short but on this sort of pitch, the spinner will have a role to play. I think both teams have missed a trick by now playing a spinner extra.”

The run rate had fallen from 6.68 to 6.17 in the last 4 overs and it was pretty much this moment that everyone was waiting for.

Rohit Sharma has scores his fourth century of this World Cup! What a star!

He scored 122* against South Africa, 140 against Pakistan, and 102 on Sunday against England. The only other batsman to hit four centuries in a World Cup is Sri Lanka great Kumar Sangakkara in 2015.

KEY EVENT

He was dropped on 9 and Rohit Sharma went onto score a century.

But Bangladesh weren't going to make the same mistake again.

India 204/2 after 34 overs

Ind vs Ban Live Score: India 217/2 After 36

4 overs together and the Virat-Pant partnership has made 22 runs so far. Virat’s hit two boundaries and there’s been the one maximum from Pant so far.

Ind vs Ban Live Score: India 237/2 in 38

Shakib’s taken for 10 in the 37th over courtesy two boundaries but the 38th over sees Kohli and Pant get the scoreboard ticking with a lot of running between wickets. Another 10 runs from this one bowled by Soumya Sarkar as the run rate has risen to 6.23.

Ind vs Ban Live Score: Pant Pushes On

A wicket maiden in the previous over but Rishabh Pant is writing his own rules here.

No tame shots as Mohammad Saifuddin is hit for three straight boundaries and India make 14 off the over.

India 251/4 after 40 overs

Ind vs Ban Live Score: Pant Nears Fifty

Rishabh Pant clearly has been sent with a clear brief - score runs. MS Dhoni is rotating the strike and has faced just 10 balls in the last 4 overs.

Pant, in fact, is nearing his half-century as he bats on 47 (36).

India 268/4 after 43 overs

Ind vs Ban Live Score: Pant Out on 48

‘Go big or go home’ seemed like his mantra and Rishabh Pant has gone ‘home’ going for a big one. Shakib Al Hasan is the bowler and after his many tight spells, the all-rounder is rewarded with a wicket.

Mosaddek Hossain though manages to almost drop Pant, latching onto the ball after a little fumble.

KEY EVENT

Ind vs Ban Live Score: Kartik Out on 8

Dinesh Kartik hit his first boundary in the 47th over but the new addition to the team has fallen on 8.

He’s playing the match in Kedar Jadhav’s place who has been criticised much for his slow innings (ref: Sachin Tendulkar), but an 8 off 9 isn't going to help DK’s case much when India pick the squad for the Sri Lanka game on Saturday now.

India 298/6 in 47.2 overs

Ind vs Ban Live Score: 11 Runs off 49th

MS Dhoni’s hit a couple of boundaries in the penultimate over bowled by Mohammad Saifuddin as 11 runs come off it.

India 311/6 after 49 overs

Ind vs Ban Live Score: Dhoni Out

Tried to avoid this word but MS Dhoni’s gotten out trying to go for a big one, showing some ‘intent’.

Some credit to Mustafizur Rahman as well. Bowls two dots to start the over and Dhoni has little choice but to swing the bat. Caught by Shakib al Hasan on 35.

Tamim is bowled for 22 off 31 balls. Shakib Al Hasan replaces him.

Bangladesh 39/1 in 9.3 overs

Ind vs Ban Live Score: Pant Keeps Wickets

It seems like MS Dhoni has handed over the wicketkeeping gloves to Rishabh Pant. Doesn’t seem to be on the field anymore.

Ind vs Ban Live Score: India Lose Review

Mohd Shami bowls to Soumya, and the Indians are appealing for lbw. The umpire says no, and Virat Kohli takes the review just at the last second.

Aaaand, India lose the review. The umpires say there’s no inside edge. Kohli is not happy because the umpires decided against going for the ball tracking.

The ball tracker however later shows that it would have been umpire’s call. So not a wrong call. But the Men in Blue have lost their only review of the innings.

Ind vs Ban Live Score: Ban 73/1 in 15 Overs

15 overs gone, and Bangladesh are at 73/1.

The review lost, and danger-man Shakib at the crease. India do need a wicket... or a few just about now.

Shakib Al Hasan (38) and Mushfiqur Rahman (20) are set at the crease, and have added 42 runs for the third wicket.

Ind vs Ban Live Score: Shakib Nears Fifty

Stunning piece of fielding from KL Rahul at the boundary to save a four on the fifth delivery of the 26th over off Shami. 6 runs added in that over. Shakib is nearing a half-century.

Interestingly, Shakib has become the first cricketer to take 10 wickets and also score 500+ runs in a single edition of the ICC World Cup.

Bangladesh 133/3 in 26 overs

Ind vs Ban Live Score: Chance for a Run-Out!

Shakib slams the ball towards deep midwicket, asks for a double, but Liton Das is hesitant. Shakib rushes back to the crease.

In the meanwhile, Chahal throws the ball from deep mid-wicket and Dhoni hits the stumps. Third umpire confirms Shakib was in.

Ind vs Ban Live Score: Shakib Scores Fifty

Shakib hits a delivery off Pandya to deep point, and the batsmen take a quick double to bring up Shakib Al Hasan's half-century. He’s really been brilliant at this World Cup.

Ind vs Ban Live Score: Pandya Removes Liton!

Big wicket!

After smashing the first six of Bangladesh’s innings, Liton is caught out by Dinesh Karthik off a delivery by Hardik Pandya!

Jadeja comes onto the filed as a replacement.

Ind vs Ban Live Score: Shami Hit for 17 Runs

Expense over there by Shami. He leaks 17 runs in the 38th over as Sabbir Rahman smashes back-to-back fours on the first two balls. Saifuddin then slams two more on the fifth and sixth.

BUT, Bumrah is back on the field after getting checked. He had earlier fallen oddly while fielding. Happy days.

Just 10 overs to go in the game, and Bangladesh are not looking so bad. Sabbir (30*) and Saifuddin (19*) have stitched a 46-run stand so far, and now need 90 runs remaining in the last 60 balls with four wickets in hand.

Remember, if India win they enter the semifinals and if Bangladesh lose they exit the playoffs race.

Figures of Indian bowlers today

It’s been an impressive show by the Indian bowlers against a strong Bangladesh batting line-up.

Indian Bowlers’ Figures

Jasprit Bumrah 4/55 in 10 overs
Hardik Pandya 3/60 in 10 overs
Shami 1/68 in 9 overs
Chahal 1/50 in 10 overs
Bhuvi 1/55 in 9 overs

India vs Bangladesh Player of the Match: Rohit Sharma

A good show by the Indian bowlers, but Player of the Match is Indian opener Rohit Sharma for his 92-ball 104 that helped India post 314/9 in their 50 overs.

On getting dropped earlier in the innings, Rohit said, “I was lucky. Fortune favours the brave.

On his four tons in the World Cup so far: “My mantra is whatever has happened in the past, keep it in the past. It is a new day, present day and I don’t try to think what has happened. That is very critical from a team’s point of view, the guys who are batting well should carry on and get the team to a good total. What has happened today has happened, I need to focus on the next game now”.

Losing Captain Mashrafe Mortaza: 'Tournament Has Been Nice'

“We couldn’t make it but it was a good effort. Bit of luck could have gone our favour. The tournament has been nice, exceptional performance by Shakib and Mushy batted really well right through. A batsman like Rohit Sharma in such form, but it happens in cricket and we cannot blame Tamim for that (dropped catch). We will try to play our best in the last game.”
Mashrafe Mortaza

Winning Captain Virat Kohli: 'Happy to See That Q Next to India's Name'

On beating Bangladesh: "Bangladesh have played some really good cricket in this tournament. Deserve a lot of credit for the fight they put up. Even till the last wicket they were in the game with their intent so we had to work hard for the win. But very happy to see that 'Q' (qualified) in front of the team’s name on the table now.”

On Fielding 5 Bowlers: ”We experienced that Hardik when put under pressure has come back really well. He's really looking forward to do stuff for the team. He has a gut feel of what the batsman is looking to do. I know five bowlers was a gamble, but it was keeping in mind the ground dimensions. We wanted to play the perfect combination for the small boundary.”

On Rohit Sharma’s Ton: "He's the best One-day player around and we are so delighted to see him. When he plays like that, everybody is happy to see him strike this so well.”

On Bumrah’s Spell: “His overs were always going to be crucial, so that's why we stopped him after four initially. He's a world-class bowler and he just knows what he's up against. We can look to capitalise on situations where we are in a position to score those extra 30 runs.”
