India did struggle to bat in the early overs with the Bangladeshi fast bowlers nipping the ball here and there around them. India even lost 4 quick wickets but yet they made their mark at the end of the innings with Sharma and Pandya hitting the ball all around the park.
Dhawan left early when he lost his off stump to Al-Amin on a beauty. This one hit the deck and nipped back a little bit and Dhawan was too early positioned and left a big gap between his bat and pad which Al-Amin used perfectly.
He wanted to lay off the pressure and, as a result, went out to hit Mashrafe but edged the ball straight to Mahmudullah at mid off and that was the easiest of takes for the fielder. Next Mahmudullah struck himself against Raina taking his stumps down.
Raina went down the track to hit Mahmudullah for a big shot but missed the length of the ball as the bowler deceived him completely and knocked out his stumps down. Yuvraj was caught on the leg side hitting a slog sweep straight to Sarkar.
Sharma played well but was caught by Sarkar. Al-Amin picked up two wickets late in the innings. First Sharma and then Pandya, who was caught at long on. India still has managed to post a very decent total in this first game of Asia Cup.
On a green top wicket, the Indians had all the trouble in the world to face the new ball. Bangladesh won the toss and immediately asked India to bat on a green belt that has been seen after a very long time in a subcontinent ground.
Dhawan tried to play the ball on the off side but the ball shaped in a little bit towards him after hitting the seam and there was enough gap given between the bat and pad by Dhawan to let it go pass in between the two.
Dhawan lost his off stump. Next the pro-Kohli went out after he felt jammed in the center. Kohli was bowled a brilliant over by Mustafizur first in which he was beaten on more than three times. This put pressure on India’s number 1 batsman.
