Asia Cup 2016: Runs & Records of India Vs Bangladesh T20 Match
Rohit Sharma scored 62 runs in his last 27 balls to score his second highest T20I score
When the green top was revealed as the pitch for the first T20I of the Asia Cup 2016 T20 between hosts Bangladesh and India, it seemed like it would be a low-scoring match with the bowlers dominating.
However, after struggling for the first ten overs, the Indian batsmen counter-attacked in the last ten overs and put on a challenging total in the circumstances. Bangladesh never looked like chasing the total down as India picked up wickets at regular intervals and minimised any chance for the home side to give India a 45-run win in the first match of the tournament.
Here are the stats from the game:
0 – The number of wins Bangladesh have in three T20Is against India. The last two times the two teams met were in the 2009 World T20 and in the 2014 World T20.
