India vs Bangladesh : Asia Cup Super 4 Highlights Shubman Gill was the anchor for India chasing the target of 266, but he could hardly find a suitable partner at the other end. The opener scored his fifth ODI ton and almost single-handedly led India’s chase, only to fall from 133 for 121 in the end. Only KL Rahul could stick with Gill in the middle for any considerable period of time. The pair added 57 runs for the third wicket before Rahul Mahedi fell to Hasan. Suryakumar Yadav and Ravindra Jadeja then fell without troubling the scorers too much and Gill had Axar Patel for company as his innings ended. Axar then gave India hope by hitting 42 off 34 balls. His dismissal sealed India’s defeat and the match was played when Mohammed Shami was run out on the penultimate ball of India’s last innings.
Earlier, Bangladesh surrendered the all-important attack of Shakib Al Hasan (80) and Towhid Hridoy (54) after the top order collapsed as the duo posted a competitive 265/8 after Indian captain Rohit Sharma opted to bowl.

India vs Bangladesh: Exhaustion does the job for Bangladesh. Tanzim sends it in on a yoke length, Shami digs it out and the pair try to run for two. But the bails are beaten much before Shami can return, so that the last Indian wicket falls. This is Bangladesh’s first win in an Asia Cup match in Colombo and their first win over India in the Asia Cup since 2012.
