Ravindra Jadeja is the Man of the Match! 

"Very happy. Playing after a long time. I always wanted to make a mark. Whenever I get the opportunity to play in blue, I play to my potential. Kuldeep and Chahal they were also bowling very well. Luckily I was getting wicket from the other end. That's how bowling works. Whenever I get a chance, I try and prove myself. Maybe in the next game against Pakistan, I need to play my role," says Jadeja in the post-match presentation.

00:07 (IST)

An easy outing for India today, Bangladesh were no competition. Yet India gained positives. Ravindra Jadeja's brilliant comeback, Rohit Sharma's continuous domination and Dhoni getting runs under the belt as India makes progress in the tournament. 

On 23 September, we will return again as India will take on Pakistan in their second Super 4 clash. We will be there with latest score and over-by-over updates. Till then, goodbye. 

00:00 (IST)

Rohit Sharma, India captain: Very clinical from the start. We bowled well. Restricted them under 180. It is important to keep rotating your bowlers, keep batsmen guessing. It is also not easy to bowl longer spells in these conditions. Bowlers responded really well. Jadeja played an ODI after long time and played really well. Full credit to him. Once you are in, make sure to play as deep as possible. Wanted to make sure I was there. I think we need to go back and come back fresh against Pakistan and hope to repeat the same performance.  

23:50 (IST)

Rohit Sharma's batting average in the last five ODI against Bangladesh: 99.33

Mashrafe Mortaza, Bangladesh captain: If you look at the batting, from the start we kept losing wickets. Against Sri Lanka, we lost wickets but got a partnership later. It wasn't a bad wicket to bat on. We could've scored 250-260. We kept losing wickets. I don't think conditions changed. If you score 170, it's always going to be tough. Our batters will have to take more responsibility. One win could change everything. 

23:45 (IST)

After 36.2 overs,India 174/3 ( Rohit Sharma (C) 83 , Dinesh Karthik 1)

23:42 (IST)

The crowd was demanding a six. Dhoni tried to cater to their wish and lost his wicket. However, in the context of the match it hardly matters. This has been yet another clinical show by the Indians. Even without a few key players, they are by far looking the best team in the tournament.

OUT! Dhoni perishes while trying to finish the game in style, as he hits it off the toe-end, with Mithun collecting the ball safely at deep extra-cover. MS knew the ball was headed towards the fielder's palms, and signalled Rohit to cross over. IND 170/3

Rohit nicks a cutter from Fizz, but the fact that he plays it with soft hands ensures the ball lands short of Mushfiqur. Singles collected off each of the last two balls.

22:51 (IST)

So MS Dhoni has been promoted at No. 4. Predicted this move in the Firstpost Live before the start of the match. He needs some time in the middle before the big-ticket matches against Pakistan on 23rd and possibly on 28.

Preview: An upbeat India will be eyeing another convincing victory over Bangladesh in their first game of the Super four round of the 2018 Asia Cup at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Friday.

After a lacklusture show against Hong Kong, the defending champions led by stand-in captain Rohit Sharma, rode on an all-round show to outclass arch-rivals Pakistan by eight wickets on Wednesday.

India vs Bangladesh, Highlights, Asia Cup 2018 at Dubai, Full cricket score: Rohit Sharma powers India to 7-wicket win

India take on Bangladesh as the super 4-leg of the Asia Cup gets underway. Agencies

India however, should be careful on Friday as the Mashrafe Mortaza-led Bangladeshis are well known party spoilers.

The Indian bowlers disappointed in the contest against Hong Kong, but rose to the occasion when it mattered the most and were flawless against the Sarfaraz Ahmed-led side.

Moreover, seamers Bhuvaneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah got a surprise support from part-time spinner Kedar Jadav, who came as a shocking element against Pakistan with figures of 3/23 from his nine overs.

The batsmen have more or less been good so far and opener Shikhar Dhawan presently leads the run-scorer charts with 173 runs from two innings. skipper Rohit fell cheaply in the first game but struck a fine half century on Wednesday.

The middle order comprising Ambati Rayudu and Dinesh Karthik too, look in good touch with the bat.

The Indian team management will face a difficult task in finding a perfect team combination on Friday as they now miss the services of all-rounder Hardik Pandya, who has been ruled out of the tournament due to a back injury.

Rohit will be well aware that Bangladesh is no longer a team of the past as the Mortaza-led side came with a clinical show against Sri Lanka and boast of some quality players in their squad.

With the likes of Mushfiqur Rahim, Shakib Al Hasan and Mohammad Mithun, the team has the capability of chasing or putting high scores on board.

Also, quality pace bowling in Mustafizur Rahaman and Rubel Hossain with the support of left-arm spinner Shakib carries the potential of posing some serious damage to the Indian batting line-up.

Come Friday, crowds can expect another thrilling contest when the two tournament favourites clash in Asia's biggest cricketing event.


India - Rohit Sharma (Captain), Shikhar Dhawan, Ambati Rayudu, Dinesh Karthik, M.S.Dhoni (wicket-keeper), Manish Pandey, Kedar Jadhav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Khaleel Ahmed, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Axar Patel, Deepak Chahar.

Bangladesh - Masrafe Mortaza (Captain), Shakib Al Hasan (VC), Tamim Iqbal, Mohammad Mithun, Litton Das (wicket-keeper), Mushfiqur Rahim, Ariful Haque, Mahmudullah, Mosaddek Hossain Saikat, Nazmul Hossain, Mehidy Hasan, Nazmul Islam Apu, Rubel Hossain, Mustafizur Rahman, Abu Haider Rony.
