4

to Rohit, FOUR, super start for India! Long half-volley outside off from , Rohit had to reach out and did so, bending his right-knee and creaming a square drive wide of point. Went all along the ground and raced away. The outfield looks in good condition too

4

to Rohit, leg byes, FOUR, a diving Rahim doesn't get there. Wrong line, down leg, brushes the pad of Rohit and beats the keeper to his left. All it needed was a faint tickle which came via the pad

4

Ahmed to Dhawan, FOUR, Ahmed spoils all the good work he had done in the over, by bowling a half-volley, Dhawan needed to middle that and put it in the gap and he did so with just a push-drive, into the gap at cover

4

to Rohit, FOUR, shot! Picture-perfect from Rohit. Got half-forward and offered the full face of the bat, the ball met the bat and off it went past the umpire, gave no chance to the chasing fielders. The Indian contingent clap with Rayudu leading the way

4

Ahmed to Rohit, FOUR, Rohit is quick to pull! Was on the front foot and played it awkwardly, but got it to the deep backward square fence. The weight wasn't fully forward, but he somehow swivelled around and played it in the gap, beats the fielder at long leg easily

4

to Dhawan, FOUR, Dhawan was cramped slightly on the cut, but he created his own room and punched it past the vacant short point position. It was on a back of a length and Dhawan timed the shot really well. Not sure why moved that short point fielder to a short cover. It would've been fielded by that fielder, anyway Dhawan gets a boundary

4

Hossain to Rohit, FOUR, Rohit goes over mid-off now. Down the track and goes a bit inside-out over the man, once he cleared the man it was four. Rohit was itching to get at Hossain and chose the right moment

4

to Dhawan, FOUR, that is well-timed! Another off-pace delivery, Dhawan waits for it and clips that in the air, through mid-wicket, Nasir runs after it and puts in the head-first dive, but the hands don't go in the right position, can't pull it back and the ball touches the ad-cushions

D

Hossain to Rohit, 1 run, half-tracker outside off and Rohit nearly gives Hossain a caught and bowled chance. Very lazy from Rohit as he flat-bats it softly, the ball carries in the air and to the right of the diving Hossain, who couldn't grab it one-handed, went for the catch, but the ball dipped and hit the turf. They take a single to long-on. Can't really call that a chance, but if Hossain had been a bit more athletic and anticipated, he could've had a chance

6

Hossain to Rohit, SIX, the pressure has been released. Rohit choosing the right time to go after Hossain, use of the feet and to the pitch, before smashing it straight back over the bowler's head. A flat hit and it goes all the way, into the sightscreen. That wakes the Indian crowd up, who had gone a bit silent of late

W

to Dhawan, out Stumped!! Dhawan overbalanced on the drive and is stumped. Went for a big drive to a tossed up delivery outside off and missed. The back foot is outside the line and Rahim is quick to whip the bails off. Replays show that Dhawan made room and actually one hand came off the bat handle as he went for the big drive. Good work by Rahim too. Dhawan st Rahim b 30(50) [4s-3]

W

to Kohli, out Caught by Rahim!! is pumped and is giving Kohli a send-off. Big moment in the game. After bowling short and back of a length all over, he pitches the ball up and outside off, gets a bit of movement away, tempts Kohli to play away from the body and the outside edge is nicely held by Rahim diving to his right. running forward pumped his fists and looked at the departing batsman. Kohli just put his head down and walked off. Kohli c Rahim b 3(8)

4

Ahmed to Rahane, FOUR, first boundary in 66 balls! And it has come via a thick outside edge. Ahmed had a slip stationed all over, but in order to protect the over, Mortaza moves the man and it has gone right through where a second slip would've been. Thick outside edge as Rahane punched and third man had no chance. Ahmed is a disappointed man, with a double-teapot pose

OT

to Rohit, 1 run, Rohit raises his bat and punches the gloves with Rahane, who pats him as well. 26th fifty for Rohit. Gets there with a back foot punch to long-on

4

Ahmed to Rohit, FOUR, lovely flick. It was a tad too straight and on off and middle, Rohit played a delightful flick through mid-wicket, beat the chasing fielder easily, timing, balance and head position perfect on that shot. Breaks the shackles a bit with that boundary

W

Ahmed to Rahane, out Caught by Shakib!! Rahane has thrown it away. Wanted to go over mid-off, tried to play on-the-up and the bat face turned on impact, the ball lobs to the left of mid-off, where Shakib runs and then takes it, before tumbling over. Rahane never looked at ease today and the pressure got to him eventually. Bangladesh chip away. Rahane c Shakib b Ahmed 19(37) [4s-1]

4

Hossain to Raina, byes, FOUR, Dar has made a mistake there. Down leg, Raina got a faint tickle on the leg-side glance and it hit the pad of Rahim before running away. Raina pointed out to Dar that he got bat on that, but Dar has more important things on his mind at the moment

4

Ahmed to Raina, FOUR, edged and through where a second slip would've been. Raina going hard on the cover drive and edging it. Played well away from the body and the angle across him made it difficult for him to control the stroke. Ahmed hides his face with his hand in disappointment

4

to Rohit, FOUR, very poor delivery from , short and wide outside off, Rohit rocks back and cuts hard, over point, who leapt high to his right, but it was always going over his hand. Sweeper can't get there too. Good start after the break for India. That was a nothing ball and duly dispatched

OT

to Raina, no run, that pitched just a millimetre outside leg and that saves Raina who had shuffled way too across and got struck right in front. The bat came around the front pad and the ball pinged the pad. Gould if he has given it for pitching outside leg, then fab decision for him. The decision left the Bangladeshis and stunned. Disappointment shown too

4

to Rohit, FOUR, delicate stuff from Rohit. There was no width on that at all from , but he opens the face of the bat and plays a cute tap to the right of the diving Rahim, played ever so late and that's a boundary of the highest class

4

to Raina, FOUR, lovely way to begin the powerplay. Raina shimmies down the wicket and goes for his favorite inside-out shot over cover, everyone are in on the off-side and Raina knew that. Beautifully played and deliberately hit over the infield. The Indian dug-out applaud that shot

4

to Raina, FOUR, is a frustrated man. He wants to know how that has gone to the boundary. He stretches his arms wide and wants an answer. It was a slower delivery outside off, Raina opens the face of the bat and splits backward point and short third, right in the gap as the former dived across, while the latter ran after the ball, but couldn't stop it. The quick outfield takes it all the way. The fielders are on the ground and don't want to look at

6

to Raina, SIX, Raina goes over long-on. On the boundary. Comes down the track and lofts all the way. The fielder is there with the Indians in the crowd behind him, but he watched it sail over his head. Once again Raina targetting the bowler off the first delivery of the over. Connected well and had to as it was a big boundary

4

to Rohit, FOUR, calculated hit and Rohit gets a boundary. Knows that he has to get it over the men inside behind square and opts for the sweep, kneels down and hits it well, that will be 11 runs off the over. India getting a move on now

4

to Raina, FOUR, gift for Raina and he won't miss out. Low full toss down leg, it needed bat and Raina provided that with a clip, beating short fine inside the ring. Lots of hand-waving going on at the moment from the Bangladeshis

4

Ahmed to Rohit, FOUR, well played by Rohit. It bounced from a back of a length and straightened too, Rohit adjusted well and didn't jab at it, controlled stroke through vacant slip, beats third man and leaves Ahmed disappointed

4

to Raina, FOUR, Raina rubs more salt into the wound. This was overpitched outside off and Raina leant forward to drive wide of mid-off, got it in the gap and the quick outfield does the rest

OT

to Raina, 1 run, short and pulled straight to the fielder at deep backward square leg, fifty for Raina and he raises his bat to all corners of the ground. Another nice innings from the left-hander

4

to Rohit, FOUR, now all the luck is with Rohit and India. A thick outside edge runs through the vacant slip and beats short third, fraction short outside off, Rohit cuts and gets lucky. Just a hit away now to get to his hundred

4

to Raina, FOUR, rubbish ball and Raina puts away. Down leg and short, Raina had all the time to rock back and choose his spot, he did so, sending the ball to the deep fine leg fence, over the man inside the ring at short fine. grimaces at the end of the over

4

to Raina, FOUR, class from Raina. Shuffles across a bit and then goes over backward square leg in the ring. Controlled flick, even though it was in the air, no-one in the deep at deep square leg and Raina will get a boundary

OT

to Rohit, no ball, 2 runs, there it is! Punches it through cover and gets there. Takes two and then after finishing the second, he leaps and punches the air. Removes the helmet, raises his bat to all corners of the 'G'. Takes in all the applause from the Indians. What is worse is that only had four inside the circle. Basic error that and it's a no-ball. Well spotted by Gould. The fielder at sweeper charged at the ball and misfielded. The Indian contingent were on their feet as soon as Rohit reached his 100. Well played, in a pressure game

W

to Raina, out Caught by Rahim!! Raina goes. Top-edged straight up in the air and a good catch by Rahim, slower off-cutter on the stumps, Raina looked for the big slog and got a heavy edge. Not easy to grab swirlers like that, but Rahim kept his cool and went back, got those big gloves around the ball and grabbed it. There were insects and debris flying around, but he didn't allow that to distract him. Raina c Rahim b 65(57) [4s-7 6s-1]

4

to Rohit, FOUR, more class from Rohit. Just a back foot punch and he gets four. Past the diving cover to his left, once it beat the fielder inside the ring, had to beat long-off to his left as well, the distance that the fielder had to cover made it hard and the ball trickled into the ad-cushions. Didn't hit it hard, just timed it superbly and the outfield did the rest

6

to Rohit, SIX, fabulous shot! misses his length and Rohit hits the bowler for a six over long-off. failed to find the yorker, Rohit went deep in his crease and lofted it beautifully over long-off. Sweet timing and it went all the way. Dhoni walks up to him and punches gloves

4

to Rohit, FOUR, now pulls through mid-wicket. Knew will bowl short after getting hit for a six and murders a short-arm pull, sat back and hammered it

4

to Rohit, FOUR, 'save your legs Rohit Sharma, don't run' says Nasser on air! So effortlessly played and perfect description from Nasser. It was on a good length and outside off, may have been the slower delivery as well, Rohit just lazily punched it wide of cover and split mid-off too. Both were inside the ring and Rohit continues to churn out boundaries

6

Ahmed to Rohit, SIX, how well is Rohit hitting them? Very well. Just a forward press and then slams it across the line over wide long-on, caught in the crowd by a young Sardar. Ahmed guilty of bowling too short and Rohit was waiting for it. The bat may have turned on impact, but enough timing on the shot to clear the long boundary

4

Ahmed to Rohit, FOUR, Rohit is just toying with a young Ahmed. He is reading him like a book. Anticipates that the bowler may bowl the slower delivery, shuffles across and then picks the back-of-the-hand slower delivery, it sits up short for him to pull over square leg, no-one there and it dribbles away. Ahmed under huge pressure now

W

Ahmed to Rohit, out Bowled!! Ahmed finally gets some solace. He gets Rohit. In the blockhole, Rohit was trying to jam it out, with an angled bat, Rohit jammed it out, but the ball hit the turf and then the stumps. Ahmed does a Akhtar as he unveils his aeroplane celebration with both arms stretched out wide. Rohit b Ahmed 137(126) [4s-14 6s-3]

4

to Ravindra Jadeja, FOUR, has beaten Ravindra Jadeja, but the batsman has got a boundary. Jadeja was looking to come down the track, it was fraction short, so he went back and edged the cut, deflected off Rahim's pad and raced away past the short third inside the ring. has a wry smile on his face

4

to Ravindra Jadeja, FOUR, that is thumped by Ravindra Jadeja. Down the track and he belts the length ball wide of the diving cover, no chance for long-off, running across. The fielder at cover could've done a much better job at the edge of the circle

4

Ahmed to Ravindra Jadeja, FOUR, Ravindra Jadeja now gets four. Ahmed did well to follow the batsman, who was backing away, but bowled it full, which was the mistake, allowed Jadeja to clip it wide of backward square leg, inside the ring, beats deep square leg running to his left. Ahmed wears a disappointed look as he walks back

4

Ahmed to Ravindra Jadeja, FOUR, Imrul Kayes, better win it for Bangaldesh with the bat. That won't make Mortaza happy. It will make him mad. Already Mortaza is seething with rage. It was a simple slide and stop, but Kayes after getting across to his right from deep mid-wicket, allowed the ball to slip under his body. Got the slide right, but incomprehensibly allowed the ball to escape. Retrieves the ball and throws it back. The camera pans to Mortaza, but I didn't pick up anything from him

W

Ahmed to Dhoni, out Caught by Nasir Hossain!! Nasir keeps his head as others are losing theirs in the field. Short and cramping Dhoni for room, he swivelled for a big pull, the ball went off the thick outside half, more of a slice and point running back takes it well. Kept his eyes on the ball and took it comfortably. Dhoni c Nasir Hossain b Ahmed 6(11)
