Bangladesh beat India by 1 wicket

Shere Bangla National Stadium, Mirpur

That's all we have from a cracker of a game! Bangladesh go into the next game with a lead in the series and will be hoping to pull off consecutive home series wins against India. The visitors have a massive task to try and salvage the series but they will definitely come back stronger. The second ODI will be played on Wednesday 7th December and the game starts at 11.30 am IST (6 am GMT). Do join us for the build-up which begins well in advance. Cheers!
Litton Das the skipper of Bangladesh says that sitting in the dressing room they were nervous but Mustafizur Rahman and Mehidy Hasan did really well. Mentions that India bowled well in the middle overs and that helped shift their momentum on their side. Claims that when he and Shakib Al Hasan were batting he felt that they could get the target easily but it was all about Mehidy Hasan who batted really well.
Mehidy Hasan in the Player of the Match for his match-winning knock of 38. He says that it is a good opportunity for him and he is really excited. Explains that he told Mustafizur to stay calm and that he needs to believe and he knew he could do it. Claims that he wanted to bowl stump to stump and keep it tight. Says he is very, very happy with his performance.
Rohit Sharma the captain of India says that the game was really close. Adds that they did well to come back in the game and get to a good position. Mentions that they did not bat well but the bowlers did a good job. Goes on to say that the Bangladesh batters held their nerves and got there in the end. Claims that in the last few overs they would have liked to take a wicket. Credits the bowlers for bowling well for the first 40 overs as they did a good job and the bowlers kept taking wickets. Feels that another 30 to 40 runs would have helped them a lot. Says that with KL Rahul and Washington Sundar batting they were hoping to get to 250. Explains that they lost wickets in the start and through the middle as well. Adds that with the pitch being challenging, they need to understand how to play on these kinds of surfaces. Reckons that playing on the wicket should not be a problem as most of the players grew up playing like this. Ends by saying that they know what we need to do and they hope to turn things around in the next game.
Stay tuned for the presentation...
Earlier, India struggled to start well with the bat losing the top three batters cheaply. Shreyas Iyer and KL Rahul steadied the ship to help India recover from that precarious start. Once the former was dismissed, the onus was on KL Rahul to bat through and allow India to post a respectable total. He kept the runs flowing for India while losing partners at the other end. His dismissal meant India were unable to cross the 200-run mark and were bundled out without playing the full quota of 50 overs.
Bangladesh were off to a cautious start while chasing a low total losing Najmul Hossain Shanto early. Litton Das and Anamul Haque rode on luck and did well to not lose any more wickets against the moving new ball. Then, Litton Das and Shakib Al Hasan joined hands to take the game deep. Once these two were dismissed, it was the experienced pair of Mahmudullah and Mushfiqur Rahim who took the chase forward. But, both set batters were dismissed on consecutive deliveries to put Bangladesh in a spot of bother. Thereon, Bangladesh lost their way in the chase and were quickly nine down and staring at defeat. That's when Mehidy Hasan took matters into his own hands along with Mustafizur Rahman for support and guided Bangladesh home from a losing position.
What an outstanding knock from Mehidy Hasan! He has been the hero for Bangladesh and the crowd is going berserk! An emphatic win for Bangladesh and they snatched victory from the jaws of defeat. At 136-9, they were down and out but, Mehidy Hasan brings it home from them out of nowhere. India will be rueing the opportunity they had to seal they game but KL Rahul dropped an easy catch with the gloves on. Bangladesh have taken a 1-0 lead in the series and beat India for the sixth time in ODIs.

OUT! CAUGHT! What a cracking start for India as Deepak Chahar draws first blood on the very first delivery of the inning! Bowls this on a good length and outside the off stump, get the ball to nip away slightly. Najmul Hossain Shanto pushes at the ball and gets an outside edge that flies straight into the palms of Rohit Sharma at first slip. India would have been praying for this kind of a start and they have got it. This is will have the Bangladesh batters wondering.

... MATCH DAY ...

We are all set for the run chase. The umpires and players make their way out in the middle. Litton Das and Najmul Hossain Shanto will be the openers for Bangladesh. Deepak Chahar to start the proceedings with the ball for India.
... THE RUN CHASE ...
Right then, the game is heavily tilted in favor of Bangladesh courtesy of their bowling effort and now it is up to their experienced batting line-up to take them to a 1-0 lead in the series. They will be facing an inexperienced bowling contingent and will be silently confident of overhauling this target. India need to come out all guns blazing if they are to have a whisker of an opportunity in this game. The pitch still looks good for batting but they will need to see what their opponents did right and extract the maximum help from the wicket. There is still a lot of cricket left and it is never advisable to take things for granted. Do join us shortly for the run chase to see which team ends up victorious.
Bangladesh would be thrilled about winning the toss and electing to field first as Litton Das showed his aptitude as a captain with his bowling changes. He brought on spin early and that resulted in a wicket for Mehidy Hasan which allowed Bangladesh to put some pressure on their opponents. Shakib Al Hasan started with a bang taking two wickets in his first over and getting the advantage in favor of his team. Litton Das pulled off a spectacular catch and his effort reconfirmed the fact that the Bangla Tigers were up for the game. Ebadot Hossain did drop a catch but made up for it with the ball as he took two wickets and Shakib took three more to wreck the Indian batting in the middle overs. Shakib Al Hasan was the pick of the bowlers taking a five-wicket haul and coming really close to achieving his best figures in ODIs. He was ably supported by Ebadot Hossain who claimed the last two wickets to end the game with a four-wicket haul.
India got off to a circumspect start with Shikhar Dhawan unable to get off the blocks and taking time to settle in at the wicket. He was dismissed early but Rohit Sharma got off to a decent start. The game took a massive turn when the skipper and Virat Kohli were dismissed in the same over and India found themselves in a spot of bother. Shreyas Iyer and KL Rahul began rebuilding the innings but were pegged back once again when the former was dismissed after a 43-run partnership. Washington Sundar provided KL Rahul with support as they put on 60 runs together but the wicket of the all-rounder initiated a collapse as the visitors lost 4 wickets for 4 runs. The wicket-keeper reached his half-century but was dismissed on 73 to end India’s hope of getting past the 200-run mark.
What an outstanding performance on the field by Bangladesh! This inning has been all about Bangladesh’s most loved player Shakib Al Hasan! He has dismantled India’s powerful batting lineup to restrict the visitors to an under-par score of 186. KL Rahul battled on for India but ran out of partners as India were unable to play out their full quota of overs. They have an uphill task if they are to defend this target and win the first game in this series. Bangladesh have done all the hard work and it is now up to their batters to take them beyond the finish line.

The match is about to begin as the umpires make their way out to the center. The Bangladesh players have taken their respective positions on the field as Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan stride out to the middle. The players seem to have made their way out earlier than expected and are now waiting for the official start time. Mustafizur Rahman has been handed the new ball and he will begin proceedings. Let's play...
Some team news coming out for India as Axar Patel was not available for selection today. Rishabh Pant has also been released from the squad after consultation with the BCCI medical team and will return for the Test series. There has been no replacement announced in his place.
Pitch Report - Anjum Chopra is next to the patch in the middle and she says that it looks like a hard surface. Adds that it will be a batting paradise. Mentions that there is some grass cover on the surface but that is mainly to hold the pitch together. Ends by saying that there maybe some help for the bowlers early on.
Rohit Sharma the skipper of India says that he is not sure what he wants to do. Adds that there seems to be a bit of moisture in the pitch so they would have probably bowled first. Explains that it has been a chasing ground so would have liked to have a target to bat towards. Adds that they will now look to put a good score on the board. Informs there have been some injuries so they are going with four all-rounders in the team. Mentions that Kuldeep Sen will make his debut and he has done well in the domestic circuit so it will be interesting to see what he can do. Goes on to say that KL Rahul will keep wickets today. Claims that they hardly played any cricket in New Zealand but they did well which is a positive for them. Ends by saying that any opportunity the youngsters get, they need to learn from the experience and their mistakes and they don’t want to look towards the World Cup so early.
Litton Das the captain of Bangladesh says that they will bowl first. Explains that the pitch looks a bit sticky and that might help them in the first 10 overs. Informs that they have three fast bowlers and two spinners. Mentions that they are looking to further the process and play good cricket.
Bangladesh (Playing XI) - Litton Das (C), Anamul Haque, Najmul Hossain Shanto, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim (WK), Mahmudullah, Afif Hossain, Mehidy Hasan, Hasan Mahmud, Mustafizur Rahman, Ebadot Hossain.
India (Playing XI) - Rohit Sharma (C), Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul (WK), Washington Sundar, Shahbaz Ahmed, Shardul Thakur, Deepak Chahar, Mohammed Siraj, Kuldeep Sen (On debut).
TOSS - The captains are out in the middle. The coin is flipped into the air and lands in favor of Bangladesh. They have elected to BAT first.
India played a young side in their ODI series against New Zealand but after a short break, the batting stalwarts of Indian cricket have returned to the national setup. India have historically possessed a dangerous batting contingent but they will have the 2015 ODI series loss to Bangladesh fresh in their memory. They will not want to take the hosts lightly and take this game as an opportunity to work on their playing eleven and team plans going forward. They have an inexperienced bowling lineup with some of their premier pace bowlers on the treatment table and will be looking at their spin options in this series. Will they be able to justify their favorite tag as the series commences? Or will the hosts have a point to prove and provide us with an early upset in the series? We will find out soon. Stay tuned for the toss and team updates.
Bangladesh will be playing their most successful format in recent times and it can be measured by the fact they have not lost a bilateral ODI series at home since the end of 2016. They will be missing their regular captain due to an injury, but have several senior statesmen on their side who could provide their experience to Litton Das as he looks to topple the Indian juggernaut. They will be missing some key elements in their bowling lineup as well but on the pitches on Bangladesh, it will be difficult to ignore the efficiency of the home team's frontline and part-time spinners. This will be a great opportunity for some of the youngsters coming into this series to make a mark for themselves and cement their spot in the 50-over side. 
Hello and a warm welcome, ladies and gentlemen to our coverage of the first ODI in the three-match series between Bangladesh and India at the Sher-E-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Mirpur as the two subcontinent nations battle it out for some momentum heading into the 2023 ICC Cricket World Cup next year. There are no Super League points at stake in this series but both teams have already qualified for the main event. Bangladesh will know that a win against a formidable Indian side will do their confidence a world of good and they will be eager to get off to a winning start. India have strengthened their side and will be now going through a selection process to get their final squad for the mega event.
... MATCH DAY ...
