India vs Bangladesh Live Score: MATCH SUMMARY!
India made short work of the Asian Games men’s cricket semifinal by defeating Bangladesh with a resounding 9-wicket margin. India’s captain, Ruturaj Gaikwad, set the tone for the match by winning the toss and electing to bowl, a decision that proved crucial. Shahbaz Ahmed, making his debut for the Indian team in place of Avesh Khan, picked up his maiden international wicket while R Sai Kishore’s remarkable performance was pivotal in restricting Bangladesh to a mere 96/9, as he claimed 3 wickets for just 12 runs. While India faced an early setback with Yashasvi Jaiswal’s dismissal for a duck, Tilak Varma rose to the occasion with an outstanding fifty, putting an end to his recent struggles. His unbeaten 55 off 26 balls, combined with Ruturaj Gaikwad’s 40 off 26, powered India to victory. The duo’s unbroken 97-run partnership not only secured a medal for India, but set the stage for a gold medal finish tomorrow.
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: Tilak Varma explains his celebration
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: The youngster dedicated this knock – an unbeaten half-century to his mother. He made a promise to his mum that he’s score runs in this match after going through, and in his words, ‘a rough patch’. After that splendid series against West Indies, Tilak endured a few low scores – 0 and 1 against Ireland, 5 against Bangladesh in the Asia Cup and 2 in the previous match, and what a way to brush it off. Played, young man!
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: VICTORY! IND win by 9 wickets
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: Ruturaj Gaikwad knocks off the remaining runs. A boundary followed by a single and India are into the gold medal match. Absolute annihilation of Bangladesh this by India, handing the Asian neighbours a convincing 9-wicket thrashing. With the win they have assured a medal. Team India will walk away with at least a silver but they would settle for nothing less than a gold.
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: SIX! FIFTY for Tilak Varma
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: A second T20I half-century for Tilak Varma and he gets there with a banger of a shot. Clears the ropes comfortably for his 6th six. This has been utter domination from this young Indian team. A fan of tattoos, Tilak points towards a big one on his abdomen after getting to the landmark. India just 5 away from a place in the gold medal match.
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: A SIX on one knee!
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: Not stopping Tilak Varma as he bludgeons his 5th SIX of the innings. Goes down on one knee but the connection is spot on as another ball flies over the boundary and thuds into one of the trees. He goes to 47 as India progress to 82/1 in 8 overs. Just 15 more needed. It could finish in this over itself.
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: Spinner’s pitch? What’s that?
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: Given how the first innings panned out, the Indian batting was expected to be out under a bit of pump by the Bangladesh spinners, but it’s been anything but that as Gaikwad and Tilak have grabbed this bowling attack by the scruff of its neck and pummelled them with some exquisite strokeplay. India 74/1 in 7 overs and it’s only a matter of time now.
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: Only FOURS and SIXES now
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: Another over starts with a six as Tilak nails his third six – this time down the ground – and then plays a switch hit for FOUR. It’s that easy for India; they’re treating this as net practice. The over ends with a third six as Gaikwad clears the sweeper cover boundary with ease. India 67/1, need just 30 more off 90 balls.
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: CRUNCHED! Tilak launches the ball for another biggie
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: Raining boundaries and sixes for India. After Gaikwad in the previous over, it’s Tilak’s turn to up the ante. Two similar deliveries in the slot from left-arm quick Mrittunjoy Chowdhury, and on both occasions, Tilak connects a wristy flick brilliantly. All the way for six. India bring up their 50 in absolutely no time.
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: And now consecutive FOURS
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: Gaikwad in the mood. After clobbering two sixes, Gaikwad drills a couple more boundaries through the off-side to make it a handsome over for India. 21 off Ripun Mondol’s second as India breeze away to 36/1 after 3 overs. Clearly, pace isn’t working for Bangladesh so they might need to turn to something different.
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: PULLED! Back-to-back SIXES
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: That’s more the Gaikwad the world is accustomed to seeing. No more defending today, no more being circumspect. He takes Mondol on. Drops it short, not much pace and Gaikwad gets into position in a nano-second and pulls it over cow corner for a SIX. Dishes out the same treatment next ball as Mondol doesn’t learn his lesson. This one a lot more conventional as the ball lands over square leg boundary. India racing away.
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: Boundary for Gaikwad, SIX for Tilak
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: Width on offer and the captain Ruturaj Gaikwad smacks it past point for four. Spin straightaway from Bangladesh as captain Saif Hassan brings himself on but he too is greeted with SIX – drilled down the ground – by Tilak. India take 10 off that over to reach 15/1 after 2.
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: OUT! IND landed Jaiswal blow early
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: What a start for Bangladesh! Ripon Mondol gets the in-form Yashasvi Jaiswal fourth ball of the innings. That’s a huge wicket. In the slot. Jaiswal flicks it but fails to keep it along the ground. Into the hands of Mrittunjoy Chowdhury it goes. India 1/1 after the first over.
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: BAN finish on 96/9
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: 97. That’s all India require to guarantee themselves a medal and play the gold medal match on Sunday. Arshdeep nails his yorkers right to keep the last over to just five and picks up a wicket off the last ball. Not enough one would assume. The Indians should chase this down.
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: One over to go! BAN need 9 more for 100
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: Sai Kishore is done bowling for the day as he finishes with splendid bowling figures of 3/12. Ripon Mondol goes for three wild swings in that over, all failing to connect. Bangladesh 91/8 with one over left. They need nine to breach that 100-mark. Arshdeep to bowl the final over of the innings.
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: OUT! Down to the last two
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: Maiden T20I wicket for Shahbaz Ahmed, Bangladesh down to their last 2 wickets with the score reading 81. Rakibul has to depart after playing a cameo of 14 off 6 balls. It’s given some Bangladesh some hopes of breaching that 100-run mark. They have overs left, just not enough batters.
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: OUT and SIX!
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: We’ve all heard of “SIX and OUT,” but the reverse scenario isn’t as uncommon as you might think. Bishnoi managed to claim his first wicket, the seventh for Bangladesh. However, the new batsman, Rakibul Hasan, promptly smashed the leg-spinner for a massive six. That would have cleared the ropes at any ground. He followed it up with a boundary on the next ball, bringing Bangladesh close to the 80-run mark.
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: Hara-kiri! Chaos!
A golden opportunity for India went begging. Two run-out chances were presented, one at the non-striker’s end and the other at the batting end. The second one was particularly straightforward, as the batsman was quite far from regaining his ground due to a complete breakdown in communication. Jitesh collected the ball well, but the throw was woefully off target. They all can see the funny side of it.
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: Another boundary-less over
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: Nothing different to update here. Another tight over from Washington Sundar keeps Bangladesh on their toes. Well, they have only tip-toed so far. The surface by no means is the easiest to bat on. A spinner’s paradise. However, facing this formidable Indian team, Bangladesh is well aware that achieving a minimum target of 100 runs is a necessity.
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: OUT! IND to wrap BAN inside 100?
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: TATTERS! That’s how this Bangladesh innings looks like at this moment as they lost a sixth wicket. Just some random swinging of the bat and nothing else. Sai Kishore picks up his third as Afif Hossain departs for 7 off 15. Bangladesh 58/6 in 13 overs. MADNESS!
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: A gifted FOUR! First of the innings
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: WOW! It has taken Bangladesh 12 overs to finally get their first boundary of the match, to go with two sixes. A flipper from Bishnoi but not on the mark, beats everyone along the away – batter, keeper and the fielder. Four leg byes for Bangladesh and they will take it. They will take anything at 54/5.
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: WICKET! FREE-HIT and still nothing
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: Still no intent from Bangladesh, despite getting a free hit after R Sai Kishore overstepped. Only a couple of runs. What’s worse? A wicket follows the next ball as Shahadat Hossain chips to Tilak Varma at point. Bangladesh have lost half their side for 45 and their dreams of reaching the gold medal match slipping away with each blow.
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: Ravi Bishnoi is here!
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: With plenty of purchase for spinners, Rutu gurns to his specialist leggie, Ravi Bishnoi. With fingers spinners already combining to pick 4 wickets between them, Bishnoi is likely to be quite the handful. India going for the jugular now. A lot of chirping in Bangla between the two Bangladesh batters but nothing seems to be working as the scoring rate continue to languish in the 4 an over. Bangladesh 40/4 in 10 overs.
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: GONE! Wickets continue to tumble
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: One more bites the dust, and it’s the settled Emon, goes plays the pull shot but only manages a top edge into the hands of captain Gaikwad. Things go from bad to worse for Bangladesh who are now 4 down for just 36. Tilak Varma has reasons to celebrate as he picks up a wicket in his second over.
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: THUMPED! SIX
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: Emon cracks only the second six of the match – there are no boundaries hit till now – which sums up Bangladesh’s innings. A much needed one though as they are really struggling to pick up the pace with their scoring. After some shoddy bowling against Nepal, this has been splendid from India thus far.
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: Two wickets in the over for Washy
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: Unbelievable scenes. Bangladesh have slumped to 21/3 following Washington Sundar’s double-wicket over, in which he dismissed skipper Saif Hasan and Zakir Hasan for a duck. End of the first Powerplay and with Bangladesh 3 down for just over 20 runs, they are all over the place.
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: GONE! Breakthrough
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: OUT! The first wicket falls and Sai Kishore’s dream run continues as he dismisses Mahmudul Joy. With Bangladesh not getting any momentum whatsoever, one of them has to go. Joy goes for the big shot but the timing was all over the place. Eventually, he ended up skying a catch to long on. Bangladesh 18/1 in 4.1 overs.
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: Right, now Washington Sundar!
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: And Bangladesh openers can’t get him away either. Joy has a wild swing but misses connection altogether. There’s turn and spin. Errs in line with a wide but overall another good over for India with just three off the over. Bangladesh don’t have an answer. They are 18/0 in 4 overs.
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: Interesting! Shivam Dube partners Arshdeep
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: With Avesh left out, Shivam Dube is the only other quick in the Indian team besides Arshdeep. And he concedes a six in his first over as Emon flicks him over square leg. The ball lands after thumping against one of those humongous nets to stop the ball from going outside the ground. There’s some swing for him too. Bangladesh 11/0 after 2 overs.
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: SWING!
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: When Arshdeep swings the ball, there are few better sights in the world of left-arm pace. Bowls four dot balls before allowing a single to Mahmudul Joy, who edges the ball to third man. Adds extra pace to the last ball beating Parvez Emon outside off. India start well. Bangladesh 1/0 after 1.
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: Arshdeep with the new ball!
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: The National Anthems are done and dusted. Here we go. India. Bangladesh. Semi-final. Simply mouth-watering. One of these promising bunch of youngsters are 40 overs away from assuring a medal and sealing a place in the Asian Games final.
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: BAN unchanged
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: Parvez Hossain Emon, Mahmudul Hasan Joy, Zakir Hasan, Saif Hassan (Captain), Afif Hossain, Shahadat Hossain, Jaker Ali (Wicketkeeper), Rakibul Hasan, Hasan Murad, Mrittunjoy Chowdhury, Ripon Mondol
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: TEAM NEWS!
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: One change in India’s Playing XI from their quarterfinal against Nepal as the left-arm spinner Shahbaz Ahmed comes in for Avesh Khan. Avesh didn’t fare badly the other day and in fact picked 3/32. Maybe it’s a forced change. Who knows? We’re awaiting an official update if there is any. For all you know, it could simply be a tactical change.
India’s Playing XI: Ruturaj Gaikwad (Captain), Yashasvi Jaiswal, Tilak Varma, Jitesh Sharma (Wicketkeeper), Shivam Dube, Rinku Singh, Washington Sundar, Shahbaz Ahmed, R Sai Kishore, Ravi Bishnoi, Arshdeep Singh
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: TOSS! IND to bowl
Ruturaj Gaikwad wins the toss, and although there are no microphones or formal announcements, it’s evident that the India captain, by gesturing towards the dugout and making a rolling-arm motion, signals their decision to bowl. The official confirmation follows shortly, initially on the broadcast and later from the BCCI. Given the presence of some rain in the area, India have laid down the challenge to the Bangladesh batters… Come and to combat against our bowlers.
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: Covers are off!
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: Encouraging signs as the covers come off. We are perilously close to the toss. Should not be more than a half an hour delay. As far as what’s transpiring on the ground, the spotlight is on Arshdeep Singh, who received some serious pasting the other day. This is the same bowler who was Rohit Sharma’s go-to man in T20Is last year, but there’s a growing concern about Arshdeep as his once-reliable swing seems to have gone missing.
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: Rain stops, players warming up
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: Surprisingly enough, the toss hasn’t taken place yet as the covers are still on. But the players are out there on the ground warming up. The first visual on the screen was that of Yashasvi Jaiswal as Aakash Chopra and WV Raman talk about his potential and how he can form the crux of India’s T20I batting. Players form the huddle and discussions are underway. Anyway, shouldn’t take too long now since the drizzle has subsided.
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: TOSS DELAYED!
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: Alright, time for some update. The two captains, Ruturaj Gaikwad and Saif Hassan were about to make their way out for the all-important coin toss but a slight drizzle has delayed proceedings here at the Pingfeng Campus Cricket Field in Hangzhou.
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: D-Day for Jitesh, Tilak
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: For two of the most promising youngsters in the Indian team, Jitesh Sharma and Tilak Varma were far from convincing against Nepal. Tilak’s was a bigger case in point as unlike his natural instincts, he scored 2 off 10 balls and just couldn’t take off when the team needed him too. Jitesh meanwhile, copped a blow to his finger first ball and was not the same batter anymore. If the situation calls for it to rely on the middle order, both Tilak and Jitesh possess the ability to unleash powerful shots. India is counting on them to do just that, especially with a place in the gold medal match at stake.
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: When it’s IND vs BAN…
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: If not India vs Pakistan, India vs Bangladesh always promises to steal the show. Let’s face it. India have been the stronger of the two sides and even though they have a formidable head-to-head record, the ‘Noisy Neighbours’ have dealt India their fair share of defeat. In a mindboggling trivia, Bangladesh have defeated thrice India in their last four H2H ODIs, and that speaks volumes of how IND vs BAN is no longer a one-sided contest anymore. And when it’s a knockout, things promise to become just that tad bit interesting.
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: And India’s bowling… oh well!
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: India managed to squeeze in a 23-run win over Nepal but frailties remain. That their bowling line-up – featuring pacers Avesh Khan, Arshdeep Singh conceded 179 is not something head coach VVS Laxman and bowling coach Sairaj Bahutule would want to brush under the carpet. As the Nepal lower order went hammer and tongs on the Indian pacers – agreed the ground wasn’t the largest – a worried look descended upon many an Indian face, and even though the Boys in Blue got the job done, a long meeting with the bowlers must have ensued in the change room post-match. Nevertheless, the bowlers will be eager to ensure a smoother performance today with fewer hiccups.
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: Another IND vs PAK final loading?
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: Well, a win for the Indian team will see them through to the final, and later in the day with Pakistan taking on the Netherlands, the stage could be set for an India vs Pakistan Asian Games final. The two senior teams recently missed the opportunity to go head-to-head in the summit clash of the Asia Cup. However, given India and Pakistan starting strong favourites against Bangladesh and the Netherlands respectively, it seems likely that the two Asian giants are poised to meet in the gold medal match on Sunday.
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: India need their batters to step up!
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: The Indian men’s cricket team was in for a reality check against Nepal when their batters, barring two, looked all over the place. Now it wasn’t the easiest of pitches to bat on, but as demonstrated by Yashasvi Jaiswal and his century, and Rinku Singh signing off the Indian innings with the perfect finish, it wasn’t impossible either. Ruturaj Gaikwad looked scratchy, as did Tilak Varma and Shivam Dube. These are international cricketers who have represented India at the highest level, and would be eager to turn things around against a very opportunistic Bangladesh unit. Improved batting should be key for India.
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: Hello and good morning!
India vs Bangladesh Live Score: Good morning, all you early risers! Are you here for the cricket? Bet you are because today promises to be a monumental day for the Indian men’s cricket team at the Asian Games, as they take on Bangladesh in the semifinal. HISTORIC, as a win today will ensure India secures a top-two finish, guaranteeing them at least a silver medal. The ultimate goal, of course, is the gold, and it’s a distinct possibility. The journey to the final commences today, with India standing as the clear favourites.
