World Cup 2023: India Need 257-Runs Against Bangladesh To Continue Winning Streak


Pune: Bangladesh has set a target of 257 runs for India. Batting first, Bangladesh managed to put 256/8 on the board in 50-overs with 50s from openers Litton Das and Tanzid Hasan Tamim.

Bangladesh was off to a good start with the opening pair’s 93-run partnership. While Indian bowlers managed to strike the middle order, Mushfiqur Rahim and Mahmudullah Riyad’s 38 and 46-run knocks stabilised the innings for the visitors resulting in a decent total of 256 runs.

In the bowling department, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Siraj and Ravindra Jadeja managed to bag two wickets each, while, Shardul Thakur and Kuldeep Yadav got 1-1 wicket.

Meanwhile, in what could be a major blow for men in blue, all-rounder Hardik Pandya injured himself and had to walk off the field.

While attempting to stop the second four, Pandya tried to use his right leg to stop the ball but slipped and twisted his ankle. He appeared to be in pain and got some treatment on his left leg and his ankle was taped. Pandya had a small practice run but did not look good and had to be taken off the field.

Star batter Virat Kohli, who normally rarely bowls no matter what format, completed the rest of the over for Pandya.

India, who are riding high on confidence, will back themselves to keep their winning streak alive as this match follows India’s three previous victories against Australia, Afghanistan, and their arch-rivals Pakistan. The Men in Blue have dominated the head-to-head record in ODI matches, with 31 wins in 40 total matches. On the other hand, Bangladesh has won 8 matches.

India squad: Rohit Sharma (C), Hardik Pandya (Vc), Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul, Ravindra Jadeja, Shardul Thakur, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Siraj, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Ravichandran Ashwin, Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav

Bangladesh squad: Shakib Al Hasan (C), Litton Kumer Das, Tanzid Hasan Tamim, Najmul Hossain Shanto (Vc), Tawhid Hridoy, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mahmudullah Riyad, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Nasum Ahmed, Shak Mahedi Hasan, Taskin Ahmed, Mustafizur Rahman, Hasan Mahmud, Shoriful Islam and Tanzim Hasan Sakib
