    Asia Cup 2018, IND vs BAN Latest Updates: MAN OF THE MATCH, Ravindra Jadeja, says he’s very happy to play for the ODI side after a long time. Stresses that he wants to give his best every time he plays and do well for the team. Adds that Kuldeep and Chahal keep the pressure on the batsmen and it allows others to take advantage. Let’s everyone know that whenever he used to watch the others in limited-overs cricket, he told himself that he would do whatever it took to get in the side. On whether he’s disappointed he didn’t get to bat, he says he isn’t and will take his chance against Pakistan in the next game.

    Asia Cup 2018, IND vs BAN Latest Updates: In response, Rohit and Dhawan got the Men in Blue off a positive start again. It more or less sealed the deal. Dhawan departed, and Rayudu joined him soon after, but Dhoni hung around and made a 50-run stand with the skipper (who made a solid fifty for himself). MS departed with only a few runs remaining, which Karthik finished after coming in. An emphatic win for the Indians, they’ll be quite pleased with their performance tonight. The presentation will be coming up shortly.

    Asia Cup 2018, IND vs BAN Latest Updates: A clinical performance from the Indians. It was kind of expected too, given Bangladesh were relatively fatigued and some key players injured/half-fit. Though, not to take anything away from the Indians, they did a splendid job in all departments. Electing to field after winning the toss, they put the Tigers under immense pressure from the word go.
    The Indian pacers started it off picking early wickets and then, it was Jadeja who stole the show. He bagged 4 on his comeback into the ODI side and ran through the Bangladesh middle order. Kumar and Bumrah got 3 apiece for themselves too. Mehidy Hasan provided a late flurry towards the end and got Bangladesh to 173.

    Asia Cup 2018, IND vs BAN Latest Updates: INDIA WIN BY 7 WICKETS! A victory as comfortable as any. Done in a similar fashion too. Karthik adjusts his body and flicks the tossed up delivery through square leg for a single. Handshakes between Karthik and Sharma, nicely done. India (174/3) beat Bangladesh (173) by 7 wickets in Dubai. Rohit Sharma 83*, Shikhar Dhawan 40

    Asia Cup 2018, IND vs BAN Latest Updates: OUT! Dhoni departs trying to finish things off in style. Length ball outside off, the batsman charges down the track and looks to clear the cover boundary. Doesn’t connect as well and it flies down the throat of Mohammad Mithun, who makes no mistake in taking it coming in from the deep. Something to maybe chuckle about for the Tigers. India 170/3 in 35.3 overs vs Bangladesh (173)

    Asia Cup 2018, IND vs BAN Latest Updates: Free hit and four! BANG! That’s gone like a rocket! The power of Dhoni. It’s short of a length delivery around off, he stands tall and hammers it back down the ground. Almost takes the umpire’s head along with that. No chance for anyone to stop it. IND 155/2 in 31.3 overs vs BAN (173)

    Asia Cup 2018, IND vs BAN Latest Updates: FOUR! Shot! Strong wrists from MS Dhoni. He waits for the ball to come and then kind of whips his wrists, uses those fast hands and crunches it through the covers. The fielder in the deep attempts to stop it with a dive but is unsuccessful in stopping it. India 151/2 in 31.2 overs, chase 174 to win vs Bangladesh (173)

    Asia Cup 2018, IND vs BAN Latest Updates: FOUR! Landed short and it’s punished! Can’t be doing that against a class player like Rohit Sharma. He rocks back as he picks up the length early and pulls it powerfully over mid-wicket. One bounce and across the rope for a boundary. India 141/2 in 29.5 overs, chase 174 to win vs Bangladesh (173)

Asia Cup 2018, India vs Bangladesh Super Four Highlights: India dished out another comprehensive performance to thrash Bangladesh by seven wickets in a Super Four stage match of the Asia Cup at the Dubai International Stadium on Friday. Skipper Rohit Sharma led India from the front with a fluent unbeaten half-century to overhaul the paltry target of 174 with more than 13 overs to spare, after the men in blue rode on left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja’s magical spell of 4/29 on winning the toss and opting to chase.

The defending champions were off to a brilliant start once again with Rohit (83 not out off 104 balls; 5X4, 6X3) and Shikhar Dhawan (40 off 47; 4X4, 6X1) putting on 61 runs before the southpaw was trapped leg-before by left-armer Shakib Al Hasan in the 15th over.

Thereafter, Rohit and new man Ambati Rayudu (13) added 45 runs for the second wicket before the No.3 batsman was caught behind off pacer Rubel Hossain. With India cruising to an easy victory, former skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni (33 off 37; 4X3) was promoted up the order and the talismanic wicketkeeper-batsman played the perfect second fiddle to the skipper, who clobbered Shakib for three sixes, one among those to get to his 36th ODI fifty.

Dhoni soon joined the party, belting two consecutive boundaries off skipper Mashrafe Mortaza to raise India’s 150 and also the 50-run stand for the third wicket.

Mortaza, however, avenged the thrashing with the wicket of the stumper, who in an attempt to finish off the innings with a six, gifted his wicket away with India just four runs shy of victory.

Dinesh Karthik (1 not out) then joined his skipper to complete the formalities in style.

India’s XI: Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Ambati Rayudu, Dinesh Karthik, MS Dhoni, Kedar Jadhav, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah

Bangladesh Probable XI: Nazmul Hossain, Liton Das, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mohammad Mithun, Mahmudullah, Mosaddek Hossain, Mehidy Hasan, Mashrafe Mortaza, Rubel Hossain, Mustafizur Rahman
