  • So that brings us to the end of today's coverage. India have stormed into the final thanks to Rohit Sharma, Suresh Raina and Washington Sundar, which means that the Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka clash on Friday is a virtual semi-final. The final, though, is on Sunday. Do join us for that clash. Until then, it's time to say goodbye. 

  • Rohit Sharma, winning skipper and Man of the Match: It was important for me to step up. As I said in the toss, it was important for me to take my time initially. Bowling with the new ball isn't easy for a spinner, but hats off to him (Sundar). It was not the usual wicket what we got, definitely on the slower side. One set batsman has to bat as long as possible, because the new batsman will be tough. The partnership between me and Raina was good. It takes lot of courage. It was very courageous to take the new ball from me. He's very clear in his mind what he wants to execute. When a bowler comes to you and sets his own field, it says a lot about him. I just told him to keep it simple. I just wanted him to bowl a back-of-length ball, which is a tough to hit. From whatever I've seen of him, he can execute that. I can understand a little bit of nerves there, but he's a great talent, and he'll go strength-to-strength. 

  • Mahmudullah, Bangladesh captain: The effort was there. A bit disappointed though; had someone stood up and made 20-30 runs it could have made a difference with Mushfiqur Rahim. The plan was to take the pace off the ball and stick to your strengths as a bowler, but they didn't stick to that well. The good thing is that we have a chance to make it to the finals in the next game against Sri Lanka. 

  • Rohit Sharma is the Man of the Match for his 89-run knock! 

  • Umang Pabari, Cricket statistician

    Bangladesh become the second team to lose 50 T20Is after Sri Lanka. 
    Most wins in T20Is:
    74 - Pakistan 
    60 - South Africa, INDIA*
    54 - New Zealand, Sri Lanka
    Bangladesh v India in T20Is:
    Lost, Lost, Lost, Lost, Lost, Lost, Lost 

  • After 20 overs,Bangladesh 159/6 ( Mushfiqur Rahim (W) 72 , Abu Hider 0)

    Siraj bowls the final over, with Mushfiqur guiding the ball to short third man off a back-of-length delivery that angles into him. Mehedi tries heaving the ball down the ground, but fails to connect and ends up getting caught by Raina at long on. Nine runs off the next three deliveries, with Rahim collecting two boundaries off it and one being called wide for height. With the match virtually over, Siraj ensures that he does't give away any extras, and collects dots off the last two deliveries, as Rahim remains unbeaten on 72 off 55 balls but fails to get his team through on this occasion, 

    India win by 17 runs and are the first team to book their place in the final. Sri Lanka and Bangladesh now face off in a virtual semi-final on Friday. 

  • Dot balls off the last two deliveries of the innings, and India are through to the final with a 17-run victory against Bangladesh! 

  • Vedam Jaishankar, Journalist and commentator

    Lack of muscle power cost Bangladesh the match. Power hitting is such a vital ingredient of this format of cricket and Bangladesh, for all their spirit, lacked that. The wayward Indian  pace bowlers got away cheap. Their bowling is a worry. May be spinner Suresh Raina may have to bowl more than an over or two in the final. 

  • FOUR! Mushfiqur carves this one through extra-cover, though the shots are coming a tad late, with Bangladesh needing 18 off 2. BAN 159/6

  • FOUR! Mushfiqur guides the short-of-length delivery over short third man to collect his seventh boundary! BAN 154/6

  • OUT! Mehedi tries going big down the ground, but ends up holing out to Raina at long-off, as Siraj collects his first wicket — using the knuckle ball to good effect on this occasion. BAN 150/6

    Mehedi c Raina b Siraj 7(6)

  • Siraj to bowl the final over of the innings. 

  • Umang Pabari, Cricket statistician

    Players conceding 40-plus runs in most conseuctive T20I innings:

    4 - Christopher Mpofu
    3 - Dernbach/Tim Southee/Taylor/Trent Boult/Mohammed Siraj*

  • After 19 overs,Bangladesh 149/5 ( Mushfiqur Rahim (W) 63 , Mehidy Hasan 7)

    Rahim smacks the ball through covers off the first ball of the over, coming back for a second after Pandey cuts the ball off in the deep. Single collected off each of the third and fourth deliveries. Just five off the over, with Thakur signing off with figures of 1/37 from four overs. He conceded 19 off his first, and 18 off the next three while collecting the wicket of Rahman. 

    Bangladesh need a massive 28 off the last six balls. Rahim, batting on 63, will be on strike. 

  • Vedam Jaishankar, Journalist and commentator

    Siraj is inexperienced and hence will be under pressure. Advantage for him is that Bangladesh have a huge hill to still climb and the odd boundary should not worry him. It's now down to 33 runs from 12 deliveries


  • After 18 overs,Bangladesh 144/5 ( Mushfiqur Rahim (W) 59 , Mehidy Hasan 6)

    Rahim starts off with back-to-back boundaries, extending Siraj a rough welcome back into the attack, with the Bangladeshi keeper-batsman bringing up his second consecutive T20I half-century. Makes it back-to-back boundaries, shuffling to his right off the next ball and scooping it over the keeper. Siraj concedes a no-ball called for height, missing a run-out chance at the same time with Rahim setting off for the non-striker's end. Mehedi makes the most of the free-hit, carving the ball towards backward point for a four. Expensive over for Siraj, with 16 coming off it. 

  • FOUR! Mehedi carves a full delivery outside off towards the backward point fence, collecting his first boundary! BAN 144/5

  • FOUR! Back-to-back fours for Rahim, as he shuffles to his right, and goes for a scoop shot that sends the ball straight over the keeper's head! BAN 136/5

  • FOUR! Cut away towards the backward point boundary, and Rahim brings up his second consecutive half-century! A quality innings, coming at a time when Bangladesh were down in the dumps with the scorecard reading 61/4. BAN 132/5

  • Umang Pabari, Cricket statistician

    Most runs for Bangladesh in T20Is:

    1320 - Tamim Iqbal 
    1223 - Shakib Al Hasan 
    953 - Mahmudullah 

  • After 17 overs,Bangladesh 128/5 ( Mushfiqur Rahim (W) 49 , Mehidy Hasan 1)

    Thakur is brought back into the attack, with Sabbir hammering him towards the midwicket fence for a four off the second delivery. Thakur however, hits back two balls later, clipping his off-stump to send him back for 27. Eight runs and a wicket off the over. 49 needed for Bangladesh off 18. 

  • BOWLED EM! Swing and a miss, and Sabbir is starting to trudge back to the dressing room, as Thakur gets the much-needed breakthrough for the Indians by clipping the batsman's off-stump with a knuckle ball! BAN 126/5

    Sabbir b Thakur 27(23)

  • FOUR! Hammered away towards the midwicket fence by Rahman, who is starting to respond to the mounting pressure! BAN 124/4

  • Shardul Thakur brought back into the attack in the 17th over. 

  • After 16 overs,Bangladesh 120/4 ( Mushfiqur Rahim (W) 48 , Sabbir Rahman 21)

    Sundar's brought back into the attack for his final over, and keeps it tight to build further pressure on the Bangladeshis, giving away just four runs off it, including a double to Rahim off the last delivery. Bangladesh need another 57 off the last four overs. Sundar, meanwhile, signs off with figures of 3/22. 

  • Washington Sunda brought back for his final over. Bangladesh, meanwhile, have recovered well so far. 

  • After 15 overs,Bangladesh 116/4 ( Mushfiqur Rahim (W) 45 , Sabbir Rahman 20)

    Shankar's brought back into the attack in the 15th over. Rahim collects a single at the start of the over, before Sabbir collects a double to bring up the fifty-stand for the fifth wicket. Seven off the over, with two coming off the last delivery, as Rahman guides the ball towards square-leg. 

  • FIFTY-PARTNERSHIP up between Mushfiqur and Sabbir, with the latter flicking a full delivery from Shankar towards long-leg, where the fielder nearly pulls off a stunner, and ends up saving two runs for the Indians. Has been a useful stand for Bangladesh so far, with the Tigers back in the hunt for now. BAN 112/4

  • VIjay Shankar brought back into the attack in the 15th over. 

  • After 14 overs,Bangladesh 109/4 ( Mushfiqur Rahim (W) 43 , Sabbir Rahman 15)

    Thakur returns to the attack, and bowls an over that is in complete contrast to his 19-run first over, as he gives away just five singles off it, with Rahim and Rahman being forced to rotate the strike between themselves. 

  • Shardul Thakur back into the attack. He has conceded 19 off the only over that he has bowled so far, and will be understandably nervous. 

  • After 13 overs,Bangladesh 104/4 ( Mushfiqur Rahim (W) 40 , Sabbir Rahman 13)

    Four runs off the first four deliveries, including a leg bye, as Chahal is brought back into the attack one final time. Would've been a good over, had it not been for the six off his last ball of the evening that Rahman smashes over the cow-corner for a six. 10 off the over, with Bangladesh's run-rate now touching eight an over. 

  • SIX! Rahman rocks back, and lofts the ball towards the leg side, with the ball landing beyond the midwicket fence! Brings up the 100 for Bangladesh! BAN 104/4

  • Yuzvendra Chahal brought back into the attack. 

  • After 12 overs,Bangladesh 94/4 ( Mushfiqur Rahim (W) 38 , Sabbir Rahman 6)

    Rahim smacks a full delivery outside off towards the extra-cover fence to collect his fourth boundary. Comes back for a second run next ball after guiding it towards midwicket. Rahman collects his first boundary with a swing of the bat that sends the ball running towards the long-leg boundary. Two runs collected by Rahim off the last ball. 14 off the over, with 30 coming off the last two. Some recovery for the Bangladeshis. 

  • FOUR! First boundary for Rahman, as he swings his bat to send the ball flying towards the long-leg fence. BAN 91/4

  • FOUR! Rahim continues to attack, as he slogs a full delivery from Shankar outside off towards the extra-cover fence! BAN 84/4

  • Vedam Jaishankar, Journalist and commentator

    Bangladesh targeted the wrong bowler and paid the price. Their chase has run around and losing 4 wickets to the spinners has cooked them. The batsmen went after the steadiest bowler, Washington Sundar and flopped. The loss of those early wickets will hit them hard when the spinners are off duty. Looks like there was no planning in the chase

  • After 11 overs,Bangladesh 80/4 ( Mushfiqur Rahim (W) 29 , Sabbir Rahman 1)

    Appeal for caught behind at the start of Siraj's second over, though the sound on this occasion was that of Rahim's bat hitting his pad. Rahim then collects fours off successive deliveries guiding it towards cow-corner and third man respectively. Charges down the pitch and hammers the ball towards the long-off boundary cushion to collect his first six. 16 off the over — a much-needed one for the Tigers. 

  • SIX! Rahim charges down the pitch, and clears the long-off fence with a clean hit! BAN 79/4

  • FOUR! Back-to-back boundaries for Rahim, as he guides this one towards third man with a deft touch! The fielder was too square to be able to stop the ball on time. BAN 72/4

  • FOUR! A welcome boundary for Bangladesh, with Rahim charging down the pitch and pulling towards the cow-corner fence! BAN 68/4

  • Mohammed Siraj back into the attack in the 11th over. 

  • After 10 overs,Bangladesh 64/4 ( Mushfiqur Rahim (W) 14 , Sabbir Rahman 1)

    Shankar into his second over. Rahim gets a single off the third delivery after a couple of dots, with Dhawan's sharp fielding at mid-off preventing them from collecting any more. Single to Rahman off the fourth delivery, getting him off the mark. Another tight piece of fielding by Dhawan at mid-off that allows Mushfiqur just a single. Three off the over. Bangladesh's run-rate is a meagre 6.4 right now, with their asking rate climbing to 11. 

  • Umang Pabari, Cricket statistician

    Washington Sundar is also the youngest Indian to take three wickets in a T20I innings. The previous youngest was Axar Patel (21 years and 178 days). It happened against Zimbabwe at Harare in 2015.

  • After 9 overs,Bangladesh 61/4 ( Mushfiqur Rahim (W) 12 , Sabbir Rahman 0)

    Chahal starts his third over off with a wide. Mahmudullah strikes the ball down the ground with a lot of power, but is able to get only a single. Another wide off the second legal delivery. Three legal deliveries later, we have Mahmudullah holing out to Rahul at deep midwicket, with the Tigers sinking further in their chase. Sabbir walks out to bat, with the last two deliveries going for dots. Four runs and a wicket off the over. 

  • OUT! First wicket for Chahal, and this time it is the skipper Mahmudullah who has to depart! Pulls towards deep midwicket, but doesn't get the distance, with the ball landing in Rahul's palms. BAN 61/4

    Mahmudullah c Rahul b Chahal 11(8)

  • After 8 overs,Bangladesh 57/3 ( Mushfiqur Rahim (W) 11 , Mahmudullah (C) 10)

    Shankar's introduced into the attack in the eighth over of the innings, and he keeps it tight by giving away just four singles off it, with Bangladesh's asking rate now climbing to 10 an over. 

  • Umang Pabari, Cricket statistician

    Washington Sundar has now taken seven wickets in this series - the joint most by a bowler before the age of 20 in Sri Lanka in T20Is. Akila Dananjaya also took seven wickets.


  • Vijay Shankar brought into the attack in the eighth over of the innings. 

India vs Bangladesh, Nidahas Trophy 2018, latest update:  Siraj bowls the final over, with Mushfiqur guiding the ball to short third man off a back-of-length delivery that angles into him. Mehedi tries heaving the ball down the ground, but fails to connect and ends up getting caught by Raina at long on. Nine runs off the next three deliveries, with Rahim collecting two boundaries off it and one being called wide for height. With the match virtually over, Siraj ensures that he does't give away any extras, and collects dots off the last two deliveries, as Rahim remains unbeaten on 72 off 55 balls but fails to get his team through on this occasion. India win by 17 runs and are the first team to book their place in the final. Sri Lanka and Bangladesh now face off in a virtual semi-final on Friday.

Preview: Buoyant after registering a six-wicket victory over Sri Lanka, a confident Rohit Sharma-led India would aim to seal a final berth in the Nidahas Trophy Twenty20 tri-series when they face a tricky Bangladesh at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo on Wednesday.

By no means would Bangladesh be pushovers in the shortest format of the game as well after their record 215-run chase against Sri Lanka and a win against India will bolster their chances of making it to Sunday's final.

India lost to Sri Lanka unexpectedly in the tournament opener but came back strongly to beat both Bangladesh and the hosts consecutively.

A defeat may not be end of the road for India as it will then depend on the outcome of the final game between Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. The net run-rate will also be a factor.

India don't have key players including regular captain Virat Kohli for this tri-series meant to give the younger crop a chance.

A few players such as Deepak Hooda, Mohammed Siraj and Axar Patel are yet to play a game in the tournament but the likes of all-rounder Vijay Shankar -- playing in place of Hardik Pandya -- and paceman Shardul Thakur have done well.

Skipper Rohit Sharma has been out of form and the Mumbai batsman would like to hit the purple patch as soon as possible. Rohit's sudden slump does not augur well for the team as well as his IPL franchise Mumbai Indians.

India have not got good starts in the tournament despite Shikhar Dhawan's (153) blazing form as Rohit has been dismissed cheaply in all the matches.

Suresh Raina has got his 20s while Manish Pandey has remained steady in the middle-order. Dinesh Karthik's 39 off 25 balls against Sri Lanka has ensured that Rishabh Pant will continue to warm the dug-out.

Coming to Bangladesh, in their first meeting India did well to restrict them to 139 but in their very next match, the likes of Tamim Iqbal, Liton Das, Mushfiqur Rahim hammered the Sri Lankan attack into submission chasing down the highest-ever target on Sri Lankan soil.

India's bowling has seen IPL's costliest domestic buy Jaydev Unadkat (Rs 11.5 crore) going for runs in all three matches.

Thakur has done well in the last two games while Vijay Shankar has also been steady with his variations.

In-form wrist spinner Yuzvendra Chahal has been expensive in both games against Sri Lanka while off-spinner Washington Sundar has shone opening the bowling in the Powerplay overs in every game.


India: Rohit Sharma (captain), Shikhar Dhawan (vice-captain), Lokesh Rahul, Suresh Raina, Manish Pandey, Dinesh Karthik (wicket-keeper), Deepak Hooda, Washington Sundar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Axar Patel, Vijay Shankar, Shardul Thakur, Jaydev Unadkat, Mohammad Siraj and Rishabh Pant.

Bangladesh: Mahmudullah (captain), Tamim Iqbal, Soumya Sarkar, Imrul Kayes, Mushfiqur Rahim (wicket-keeper), Sabbir Rahman, Mustafizur Rahman, Rubel Hossain, Taskin Ahmed, Abu Hider, Abu Jayed, Ariful Haque, Nazmul Islam, Nurul Hasan, Mehidy Hasan, Liton Das.
