India vs Bangladesh – Highlights
We learned little new during the seven hours of play on Thursday at the Maharashtra Cricket Association (MCA) Stadium. We were aware of the cohesive bowling attack that India has been using. Their batters have been excellent. Bangladesh’s batters have a history of wasting good opportunities. Their bowlers haven’t had much punch.
Winning streak of India continues in the World Cup
The Thursday proceedings followed the usual course, and India’s momentum continues. Their winning streak at this World Cup now stands at four straight after their seven-wicket victory over Bangladesh. It should pave the way for an exciting matchup with New Zealand, who also have four wins, on Sunday in Dharamsala.
Virat Kohli hit an unbeaten 103 against Bangladesh
After Virat Kohli smashed a six over midwicket to emerge unbeaten on 103, the evening closed with fireworks and shouts of “Kohli…Kohli…” echoing throughout the stadium. It was telling that the only thing keeping the game’s final few minutes interesting was Kohli’s quest for a century, which would be his 48th in ODI cricket.
India vs Bangladesh: India was superb in the game
India was outstanding in the match on Thursday, with KL Rahul and Ravindra Jadeja snagging excellent catches, adding to their consistency with bat and ball. The only negative aspect of the day for India was that Hardik Pandya left the game after stressing his ankle in the ninth over.
India again follows the aggressive technique while chasing 256 runs
The response was, as expected, favorable after restricting Bangladesh to 256/8 (the Indian spinners pulled it back following a 93-run stand between openers Tanzid Hasan and Litton Das). They had successfully pursued runs against Pakistan and Afghanistan by taking the aggressive route, so there was no reason to change their strategy—especially on a pitch as challenging as the Mumbai-Pune highway.
India had a strong start thanks to the two openers, Rohit and Shubman, who both opened their innings with a four. Virat Kohli played tactfully by keeping his gaze still and completing the task. Such chases are right up his alley because they allow him to run for ones and twos and even the occasional boundary.
