Ind vs Ban Asia Cup 2023: Shubman Gill and Axar Patel’s fight didn’t work against Bangladesh
Ind vs Ban Asia Cup 2023: Bangladesh defeated India in the last match of the Asia Cup Super Fours today. Although there was no chance of reaching the Asia Cup final, the Bangladeshi Tigers surprised the whole cricket world by defeating India by 6 runs. Despite being knocked out of the Asia Cup, Bangladesh beat India to enter the tournament with dignity.
Rohit Sharma won the toss and elected to bowl first. The team management wanted to see how the batsmen performed under artificial light while chasing runs. India made five changes to the starting XI. Shardul, who replaced Hardik, took three wickets, while Bumrah’s replacement Mohammed Shami took two wickets. Shakib Al Hasan and Towhid Hridoy scored two half-centuries as Bangladesh scored 265 runs in 50 overs. Team India lost early wickets in the run chase and were in trouble. Shubman Gill is the shining flame of Indian batting today after Rohit-Rahul-Ishan’s failure. Shubman scored his 5th ODI century of his career. It wasn’t enough, though. The ‘Men in Blue’ lost by 6 runs.
The two teams made an impact in the match. Where the last smile appears on Shakib’s face. Of course, Bangladesh could have taken control of the match alone long ago. But Shubman Gill stood in the way of that journey. He scored a century and became a threat to Bangladesh. However, the Indian batsman returned to the dressing room for a personal 121. But then Axar Patel and Shardul Thakur took charge of India. Mustafiz and Tanzim Hasan Shakib took over the match. In the end, the Tigers finished the tournament with the embarrassment of Asia Cup finalists India.
Ind vs Ban Asia Cup 2023: Bangladesh’s two openers at first go to the dressing room-
Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Siraj did not play in today’s match. Mohammed Shami and Shardul Thakur started for India with the new ball. At the start of the innings, both of them gave India a pair of successes. Mohammed Shami took the first hit. In the first ball of the third over, his brilliant delivery knocked the stumps of Liton Das. Liton had to take the path of the dressing room by scoring 0 runs. Shardul then dismissed another opener, Tanzid Hasan. He was dismissed for 13 runs.
Bangladesh lost 2 wickets for 15 runs. The Tigers expected a responsible inning from the experienced Anamul Haque Vijay. But he was disappointed. Today, he was dismissed for just 4 runs off Shardul. He was caught by wicketkeeper KL Rahul. Even then, it was not the turn of the Bangladeshi batsmen to come and go. Mehedi Hasan Miraz was also dismissed for 13 runs. Mehdi was named man of the series against India in December last year. Today, of course, not a drop of that performance was seen in his game.
Ind vs Ban Asia Cup 2023: Shakib stood as a shield and played a responsible innings, as well as Hridoy-
Shakib Al Hasan has been seen repeatedly becoming a savior during the crisis of Bangladesh cricket in international cricket. Today was no exception. The Tigers lost 4 wickets at one point for 65 runs. There were fears about whether the runs would cross 100 or 150 due to Shami-Shardul’s dominance. But Shakib fought back from the experience. He scored 80 off 85 balls with the help of 6 fours and 3 sixes. He has not scored a century since the 2019 World Cup. Today was my chance. But Shakib lost the wicket off Shardul Thakur.
Towhid Hridoy was seen doing the right thing with the Bangladesh captain. In the first few matches of the Asia Cup, there was criticism about Hriday for not getting runs. Even captain Shakib said that the team wants runs from the heart. He has undergone an unprecedented change in the game from the Sri Lanka match. The 22-year-old scored his second half-century of the tournament today. He shared a 101-run partnership with Shakib. Hriday was dismissed by Mohammed Shami for an 81-ball 54 run.
Ind vs Ban Asia Cup 2023: The Lower Order took on an effective role-
Most of the batsmen in Bangladesh’s top order have bowed down to the Indian bowlers’ attack today. But the lower order was fought. At one point, they were under pressure again after losing Shakib, Towhid, and Shamim quickly. Nasum Ahmed stood up. He scored a fighting 44 off 45 balls. Mehdi Hasan was not far behind. Tanzim Hasan Shakib. Mehdi scored a blistering 29 off 23 balls. Young Tanzim remained unbeaten on 14 off just 8 balls.
Ind vs Ban Asia Cup 2023: Team India bowled by Tanzim-
Tanzim Hasan Shakib has entered the circle of one-day cricket for Bangladesh. The captain handed him the new ball. He bowls the second ball of the over. India captain Rohit Sharma was caught by Anamul Haque at cover-point while hitting a drive off the outside of the off stump. He scored 0 runs off 2 balls. He missed a chance to score a half-century in four consecutive matches. Tilak Verma vs Tanzim Hasan Shakib- The Bangladeshi fast bowler had the last laugh in the fight between the two debutants. He fooled Tilak and bowled him. The young Indian batsman gave a ‘judgment’ to Tanzim. The ball comes in and hits the off stump. He had to be satisfied with his debut with 5 runs off 9 balls.
Virat Kohli came in at number three and made the Indian innings work. Today, without him, the loopholes in India’s middle order have once again become clear. Tilak’s bat did not come as Kohli’s replacement. Rahul also did not get runs at four. After the way the Karnataka cricketer wrapped his comeback in gold by scoring a century against Pakistan, then suddenly there is a lack of consistency in his game. He returned for 39 against Sri Lanka. He did only 19 today. Ishaan Kishan also failed. After scoring just 5 runs, he gave the wicket to Mehdi Hasan Miraz while hitting an unnecessary reverse sweep. He scored 5 runs.
Ind vs Ban Asia Cup 2023: Suryakumar Yadav fails again in front of Shakib-Al-Hasan-
After batting, Shakib Al Hasan left a mark of talent against India in bowling and captaincy. He kept Team India’s batting in the bottle by organizing aggressive fielding. He added to the pressure and picked up the wicket of Suryakumar Yadav. Surya once again got a chance but failed to match himself. He was playing a cautious innings, but even if he posed a threat while hitting a sweep. The Indian middle-order batsman does not get the ball. It hits the off stump directly. He was dismissed for 26 runs.
Ind vs Ban Asia Cup 2023: On a tough pitch where everyone fails, with Prince’s unbeaten century, Gill is Asia Cup’s highest run-scorer-
Shubman Gill fought alone in the midst of the defeat of the rest of the batsmen. He opened with Rohit Sharma. Standing on the other side of the wicket, he saw his teammates’ turn to go twenty-two yards. Shubman was very tense in the group-stage match against Pakistan. But as the tournament progressed, he found a rhythm. Earlier, he scored a half-century in the group stage against Nepal and in the Super Four match against Pakistan. And today he scored an eye-catching century against Bangladesh. He started slowly. Then, as the game progressed, a flurry of runs was seen on his bat. He scored 121 runs in 133 balls with the help of 8 fours and 5 sixes.
Ind vs Ban Asia Cup 2023: Even Axar could not save the end, India lost-
Even after Shubman was dismissed by Mehdi Hasan, Team India’s hopes of winning were alive with the bat of Axar Patel. He was seen swimming against the current today. Akshar had almost reached the goal that once seemed far away. He was seen bleeding from his finger. The ball hit his hand. Still, he doesn’t leave the fight. But even that didn’t save the end. He lost his wicket off Mustafizur Rahman for 42 off 34 balls. India’s defeat was confirmed when Axar returned. Mohammed Shami hit a four but could not make a miracle with the bat. Bangladesh won the match by 6 runs with one ball to spare. After 11 years, the Tigers defeated Team India in the Asia Cup.
