    A win for Bangladesh at last. A win after 8 encounters. They came, they threatened, but could never pull it off. Finally, in November 2019, against a fairly weak Indian bowling line-up, Bangladesh have a win to show now against India in T20Is. It was not an easy deck to bat on and Bangladesh certainly struggled. They lost Liton Das early and even though Naim and Sarkar staged a partnership, it was not too quick. The next stand came between Rahim and Sarkar, whose partnership of 60 seemed like it was helping India more but then Rahim was dropped on 38 by Krunal Pandya and the game turned. Rahim then scored four successive boundaries in the next over and that was it.

    First win for Bangladesh against India in nine T20Is

    Live Score and Updates IND vs BAN: SIX! Bangladesh creates history! They get into the history books in style. The young Dube cannot produce a miracle on his debut. Maybe it was asking too much from him. Length ball on off, Mahmudullah comes down the track and whacks his pull over the wide long-on fence for a maximum. Bangladesh (154/3 in 19.3 overs) beat India (148/6) to record their first-ever T20I win. Mushfiqur 60*, Soumya 39, Chahal 1/24

    FOUR! Just 4 needed off the last over now. Take a bow, Mushfiqur. The pocket-sized dynamo has blasted so hard that it has put the Delhi crowd on the silent mood. Length ball on off, Rahim looks to defend but gets a thick outside edge. It goes wide of backward point and bets him away to the fence. Bangladesh 145/3 in 19 overs vs India (148/6)

    Live Cricket Updates India vs Bangladesh: FOUR! The ever-so reliable Mushfiqur Rahim gets to his fifty in style. Subdued celebration may be a lesson he has learnt from the past. The job is near done but not done yet. He gets to his milestone in a brilliant fashion. Full-on middle and leg, Rahim manages to ramp it over on the leg side for a boundary. Bangladesh 141/3 in 18.5 overs, need 8 runs to win vs India (148/6)

    FOUR! Mushfiqur Rahim picks the slower ball well and manages to fetch himself a boundary. It is on a length, Mushfiqur waits and then picks his pull behind square on the leg side for a boundary. 16 needed now from 9. BAN 133/3 in 18.3 overs vs IND (148/6)

    FOUR! Fine way to end the over! Landed outside off, a fraction too short, Mahmudullah backs away and punches it wide of long-off. Substitute Manish Pandey gives it a good chase from long-off and dives to his left, almost pulling it back in but misses. 13 from the over, one which started brilliantly for Chahal but then ended horribly. Bangladesh 127/3 in 18 overs vs India (148/6)

    Live Updates IND vs BAN: DROPPED, FOUR! Oh dear… Krunal Pandya has made an absolute mess of a sitter here. Full and outside off, Rahim gets down and plays a slog sweep. But there is not much elevation and the ball goes straight to Krunal Pandya at deep mid-wicket. For some reason, Pandya leaps and the ball bursts through his hands. Bounces just in front of the boundary. BAN 120/3 in 17.3 overs, need 29 to win vs IND

  • 10:12 PM IST

    OUT! Khaleel Ahmed removes Soumya Sarkar for 39. Bowled! The over started against Khaleel but it has ended in Khaleel’s favour. The off-cutter does the trick. It is on a length and it comes in off the deck too. Sarkar looks to dab it down to the third man. Not an ideal shot considering how close the ball was to the stumps. He misses and the ball goes onto hit off and middle. Bangladesh 114/3 in 17 overs, need 35 runs to win vs India (148/6)

    Live Cricket Updates: SIX! Absolutely thumped from Mushfiqur. A short ball into the head from Khaleel and Rahim almost falls over to the off-side hooking it high and mighty into the fine leg stand for six. Bangladesh 111/2 in 16.1 overs, need 38 runs to win vs India (148/6)

India vs Bangladesh, 1st T20I MATCH HIGHLIGHTS, New Delhi

Wicketkeeper-batsman Mushfiqur Rahim scored a brilliant half-century as Bangladesh registered their first-ever T20I victory over India on Sunday. In what was the 1000th T20 international, Bangladesh came out with an all-round performance as they defeated India by seven wickets at the Arun Jaitley Stadium to take 1-0 lead in the three-match series.

Needing 149 to break the streak of eight straight losses against India, Bangladesh rode on an unbeaten 60 (43 balls, 4×8, 6×1) by Mushfiqur to chase down the target with three balls to spare. The match looked evenly poised when Bangladesh needed 22 runs off the last two overs. However, Mushfiqur collected 18 runs off the 19th over bowled by Khaleel Ahmed and tilted the game in the visitor’s favour.

Skipper Mahmudullah then finished things off in style, hitting debutant Shivam Dube for a six over long-on in the third ball of the final over to script a historic victory.

Earlier, put into bat, India got off to a poor start as they lost stand-in skipper Rohit Sharma in the opening over. Rohit (9), who on Sunday went past Virat Kohli to become the leading run-scorer in T20Is, couldn’t take his Test form into the shortest format as Shafiul Islam trapped in front of the stumps in the fifth delivery of the match.

Match Preview

Bangladesh’s tour of India kicks off on Sunday, when they face each other in the first T20I at Delhi’s Arun Jaitley Stadium. Despite growing pollution in the city, the match has received the go-ahead. Without Shakib Al Hasan, Bangladesh will miss a vital player but skipper Mahmudullah has backed the younger crop of players to stand and delivery. Rohit Sharma, India’s stand-in skipper, believes Bangladesh can “beat”, not “upset” a team.
