Cricket News IND VS BAN Nagpur T20I Live Cricket Score: Chahar 6/7 Gives India 30-Run Win, Clinch Series 2-1

first_imgNew Delhi: IND vs BAN, 3rd T20I Nagpur: Both India and Bangladesh have their fair share of problems in all aspects. For India, the form of Shikhar Dhawan might be a worry. It is a strange tale for Dhawan, who was the leading run-getter in the format in 2018. However, the debate will once again be around Rishabh Pant, whose keeping in Rajkot confounded fans. He missed a stumping in controversial circumstances and another one was just about acceptable. With Pant struggling, the pressure will only grow with each and every match. India’s bowling, particularly Khaleel Ahmed, struggled in both Delhi and Rajkot. The spinners, in particular, Yuzvendra Chahal has been impressive. India’s fielding, though, is the major area of concern as they dropped catches at crucial times. They were made to pay in Delhi, they escaped in Rajkot.22:49 hrs IST: Brilliant from Deepak Chahar! He takes a hat-trick and takes 6/7, which is the best haul in the history of T20Is, breaking the record set by Ajantha Mendis. India win by 30 runs and the series 2-1.22:45 hrs IST: Bangladesh will need five sixes to win the match. However, they have probably squandered the chance. Bangladesh are 144/8 after 19 overs.22:38 hrs IST: WICKET! Chahar gets his fourth wicket. It has been a brilliant spell of bowling from him. Shafiul thumps a slow, short ball to long on and he holes out. Bangladesh are 135/8 after 18 overs.22:30 hrs IST: WICKET! That is probably done and dusted for Bangladesh. Loopy delivery on the stumps from Chahal, Mahmdullah has a slog but misses it and the skipper is cleaned up. Chahal takes his 50th wicket and Bangladesh are 130/7 in the 17th over.22:23 hrs IST: WICKETS! That is probably the game for India. Superb stuff from Shivam Dube. He nails the yorker brilliantly and cleans up Naim for a magnificent 81. Next ball, Afif Hossain chips a ball back to Dube and he gets his third wicket. Bangladesh 126/6 in the 16th over22:17 hrs IST: A good couple of overs for India so far. Khaleel bowls a good over while Dube holds his composure. After 15 overs, Bangladesh are 125/4, needing 50 off 30 balls. 22:05 hrs IST: WICKET! That is a massive wicket and Shivam Dube gets the big wicket of Mushfiqur Rahim. The cross-seamed delivery, lands it on a good length and outside off, Rahim looks to run it down to third man but drags it back onto the stumps. Rahim falls for a golden duck and Bangladesh are 110/4 in 13.1 overs.22:02 hrs IST: WICKET! Much needed wicket for India and the dangerous stand is broken. Mithun toe-ends the inside out lofted drive to extra cover where Rahul takes the catch. All hopes on Mohammad Naim now. After 13 overs, Bangladesh are 110/3, need 65 off 42 balls.21:55 hrs IST: Action packed over! Chahal misses a run-out chance of Naim and in the very next ball, Rohit fires a throw to Pant but he cannot collect it cleanly. In two balls, two run-out chances missed. This could prove to be very costly for India. After 12 overs, Bangladesh are 106/2, need 69 off 48 balls.21:50 hrs IST: Mohammad Naim hits his maiden fifty in style with a sweep off Washington Sundar. At the other end, Mithun is batting confidently with a six off the bowler. Bangladesh are 91/2 after 11 overs, need 84 off 54 to win.21:44 hrs IST: Shivam Dube continues to leak boundaries as both Naim and Mithun improvise. Bangladesh are 74/2 after 10 overs, need 101 off 60 balls.21:39 hrs IST: Mohammad Naim lofts Washington Sundar for a six straight down the ground and he is giving India some nervous moments. Bangladesh are 62/2 after nine overs.21:30 hrs IST: Mohammed Naim finds the boundaries on a regular basis as he smashes two fours off Shivam Dube. Bangladesh are 45/2 after seven overs.21:24 hrs IST: Three consecutive fours by Mohammad Naim off Yuzvendra Chahal and Bangladesh are 33/2 after six overs.21:19 hrs IST: Khaleel and Washington are bowling brilliantly and Bangladesh are 18/2 after five overs. This is a terrible start.21:08 hrs IST: WICKETS! Great start for India. Liton pulls a short ball from Deepak Chahar and finds deep square leg where Washington Sundar runs to his left and slips but holds on to the catch. Next ball, Soumya Sarkar mistimes the lofted shot to mid off where Shivam Dube takes the catch.

Bangladesh are 11/0 after two overs.20:59 hrs IST: Liton Das smashes two boundaries off Khaleel Ahmed and Bangladesh are 8/0 after the first over.20:44 hrs IST: India have ended on 174/5 and it is thanks to fifties from KL Rahul and Shreyas Iyer. Bangladesh will need to bat in an inspirational way to seal the series. 20:36 hrs IST: DROPPED! Aminul Islam is having a nightmare time as he drops Shivam Dube and India have reached 163/5 after 19 overs.20:28 hrs IST: WICKET! That is a big wicket for Bangladesh. Iyer was looking good but Soumya Sarkar bowls a full, slower ball and he miscues the lofted shot to long off to fall for 62. India are 144/5 after 17 overs.20:23 hrs IST: WICKET! The struggles continue for Rishabh Pant. A slow good length ball on middle and leg stump, Pant makes room and looks to go for an ungainly slog but misses it and he is cleaned up. India are 139/4 in the 17th over.20:21 hrs IST: Iyer continues to find the boundary. India are 138/3 after 16 overs.20:15 hrs IST: With his third six, Iyer notches up his maiden fifty off 27 balls. India are 129/3 after 15 overs.20:10 hrs IST: Shreyas Iyer is on fire here as he blasts two consecutive sixes off Afif Hossain. He is nearing a fifty and India are 121/3 in the 15th over.19:59 hrs IST: WICKET! Rahul falls immediately. He mistimes the lofted shot off Al-Amin Hossain but holes out to mid off. India are 94/3 in the 13th over.19:57 hrs IST: KL Rahul slams his sixth fifty and his knock has boosted India to 94/2 in the 12th over.19:52 hrs IST: Rahul nears his fifty with a boundary while Shreyas Iyer blasts a six and a four off Aminul Islam as the fifty-run stand is up.

After eight overs, India are 54/2.19:30 hrs IST: CATCH DROPPED! What a big moment. Shreyas Iyer mistimes the drive to backward point and Aminul Islam Biplob drops the simplest of catches.

Rohit out for 2, India are 3/1 after 1.3 overs.19:04 hrs IST: Superb start for Al-Amin Hossain. He is bowling to the stumps and not giving both the batsmen room.
