World Cup T20: India clinch thriller against Bangladesh by 1 run
Srinagar: India have sealed a thriller against Bangladesh winning the T20 World Cup 2016 game by one run at Bangalore. The Bangladesh chase had a rather forgettable start. They were unable to make most of the opening overs of the powerplay. The mounting pressure took it’s toll in form of a wicket when Ravichandran Ashwin had Mohammad Mithun caught at deep midwicket in the third over. Mithun scored just one run off three balls. India could have lorded it over Bangladesh a lot more in the early overs had Jasprit Bumrah not dropped a skier at third man, offered by Tamim Iqbal of Ashwin in the fifth over. Tamim cashed in on the chance and went on to play some fantastic shots.

India had to wait till the eighth over for the next wicket to come when Tamim moved down the track in attempt to take the attack to Ravindra Jadeja, missed and MS Dhoni completed the stumping. Sabbir Rahman was on a run-scoring spree and could have put Bangladesh in the driver’s seat. But, batting comfortably on 26 he made a silly mistake. He missed an attempted drive, but was well in his crease. For some reason he jumped mid-air to regain his balance perhaps.
