Speaking of the action of the match, Bangladesh are playing under the captaincy of stand-in skipper Najmul Hossain Shanto in the absence of regular skipper Shakib Al Hasan. Shanto won the toss and decided to bat first; batting first, Bangladesh got a brilliant start from the opening pair of Tanzid Hasan and Litton Das.
The duo stitched a partnership of 93 runs for the first wicket in 14.4 overs. Tanzid Hasan fell prey to Kuldeep Yadav in an LBW on the fourth ball of the 15th over at the individual score of 51 runs. Currently, Bangladesh have scored 136 runs for the loss of 3 wickets, having opener Litton Das and middle-order batter Towhid Hridoy there in the middle on the individual scores of unbeaten 66 and 4 runs, respectively.
Kuldeep Yadav, Ravindra Jadeja, and Mohammed Siraj have scalped one wicket each for India. Notably, India are coming off with three consecutive wins in their first three matches against Australia, Afghanistan, and Pakistan, respectively. On the other hand, Bangladesh have won one out of their first three matches in the tournament so far.
