Here we have reached to the 13th Super 10 match of World T20 2016; played between Bangladesh and India. It’s been interesting one till the end. Let’s find out which team took victory in this one! Scroll down.
In this match, Bangladesh won the toss and elected to field first. Now there intentions were all clear to chase the target that they get. India begins with a opening pair of Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma. They both made a good partnership of 42 runs and India lost their first wicket of Rohit Sharma (India: 42/1, 5.6 overs). Then it was Virat Kohli who came in, but just in next over India lost another one; Shikhar Dhawan. Now it was a good-going between Virat Kohli and Suresh Raina. Both were looking in terrific form and made a great partnership of 50 runs. But then, Virat Kohli’s wicket was taken, but Raina was still out there. Suresh Raina scored 30 runs which were really helpful for their team. In the end, India scored 146 runs and now it’s time for Bangladesh batting lineup to show something. And India is very much capable to defend their score. Let’s see how it goes in the 2nd innings!
In the 2nd innings, Bangladesh begin their batting with the pair of Tamim Iqbal and Mohammad Mithun. But the pressure built up when Mithun’s wicket was taken quiet earlier. Sabbir Rahman came in at number 3 and made a great partnership of 44 runs with Tamim Iqbal. Then, Tamim Iqbal’s wicket was taken and their game slowed down. Indian bowlers worked really well to restrict Bangladesh at some stage but their game was progressing. Besides losing wickets quickly, Bangladesh worked hard to keep going. In the end, it was 3 ball left and 2 runs were required. Quiet easier to achieve for Bangladesh as we can expect, but it really wasn’t that easy. Hardik Pandya was the bowler of that last over and unbelievably, he picked up 2 wickets on the second-last 2 deliveries. Now, it’s just 1 ball left and 2 runs required. MS Dhoni had a long discussion with the bowler. Shuvagata Hom was on strike and he missed the last delivery, but still both the batsmen ran between the wickets to tie the game at least, but well, MS Dhoni as a wicket-keeper, ran almost 15 yards to run-out Mustafizur Rahman and miraculously, he succeeded. India won the match by just 1 run. It really kept them alive in the tournament, otherwise they were out of the competition quiet earlier in their own home. So, it was really a jaw-dropping last over and MS Dhoni really proved himself as a captain. WOW! Congratulations to Indian cricket team for their terrific win.
India really has a great side under Dhoni’s captaincy and they’ve been very successful in many competitions. Much appreciated! And Bangladesh really needs to improve their batting line because they’ve been quiet loose when it comes to chase! But still they did their best and it’s a best of luck for them for the next time. Bangladesh is out of the tournament.
Well, what do you think about that last delivery of the game? It was defended brilliantly by Hardik Pandya and well, MS Dhoni gets the whole credit of that excellent run-out attempt in the end. It’s been a terrific contest! What do you say about his captaincy? Any words for Bangladesh? Share your thoughts!
