Nidahas Trophy 2018
Bangladesh looking to draw first blood
Bangladesh, after a record-breaking run-chase against Sri Lanka, are facing India in their third match in the Nidahas Trophy. India have also defeated Sri Lanka in their last match on Monday.
India are now leading the points table with two wins from three of their matches. This is their last group match. They defeated Bangladesh in their second match by six wickets.
Winning the toss today, Bangladesh have decided to bowl first. Both teams have made one change in their playing XI from their previous matches.
Abu Hider Rony has started for the Tigers by replacing Taskin Ahmed. On the other hand, Mohammad Siraj has replaced Jaydev Unadkat.
Rony opened the bowling for Bangladesh and later missed a chance to dismiss Rohit Sharma. The opening batsman mishit a delivery from Rubel Hossain and Rony missed his opportunity to make a stunning catch.
The openers started calmly for India and batted according to the change in the bowling attack as Bangladesh used five different bowlers in the first five overs. Both the batsmen are still on the crease and looking forward to keeping the score ticking after the batting powerplay.
