Let’s begin our journey with this T20 Asia Cup 2016 which is just off to a great start and surely, it’ll be another big thriller. So, the first match of the tournament is played between Bangladesh and India. Let’s see which team got victory!
In this 1st T20 match of the tournament, Bangladesh won the toss and elected to field first. India batted first and they were almost knocked out to a very low total because of losing early wickets. Bangladeshi bowlers crushed the top-order of the Indian team, except Rohit Sharma who just stayed on the crease and seriously became a threat for Bangladeshi bowlers. Even though, wickets were gone quiet early but still India reached a defendable total of 166 against Bangladesh, but the whole credit goes to Rohit Sharma who mainly played an outstanding knock of 83.
In the 2nd innings, Bangladesh batted and faced the same situation. They also lost their early wickets except Sabbir Rahman, who tried his best but that didn’t helped the team to take victory. Indian bowlers were looking more tougher! The target was quiet achievable but Bangladeshi batting-lineup might had problems to build a proper momentum to take the game. None of the Bangladeshi batsmen stayed for long on the crease. Indian bowler Ashish Nehra picked up 3 wickets and took the game away from Bangladesh. India won by 45 runs! They defended it well.. The credit goes to Rohit Sharma and Ashish Nehra for their outstanding performances!
