Mirpur (Bangladesh) ∙ Former Pakistan spinner Danish Kaneria criticized Indian captain Rohit Sharma after India suffered a shocking defeat against Bangladesh in the first ODI held in Dhaka. Danish Kaneria opined that several bad decisions by Rohit turned the win-loss match in favor of Bangladesh.
When will you bowl with Washington Sundar? After coming back home? Sundar had five overs to spare. Mustafizur Rahman is a left handed batsman. Doesn’t Rohit know that if he bowls Washington Sundar, the off-spinner, against the left-arm batsman at the tail end, he will get a wicket. Even the under-16 players know these things. If Sundar had bowled, the game would have changed. What was Rohit doing on the field? I don’t understand anything – Kaneria commented on YouTube channel.
Chasing a paltry target of 187 runs, Bangladesh were at one stage safe at 95 for three. After that the bowlers fought back by taking 6 wickets in 41 runs and India got hope of victory. But on the strength of Mehdi Hassan (38 not out) and Mustafizur Rahman (10 not out) who scored 50 runs for the 10th wicket, Bangladesh grabbed the victory in a match that was thought to have been lost.
Score: India: All out for 186 in 41.2 overs. Bangladesh 187 for 9 in 46 overs. Mehdi Hassan is the player of the match. Bangladesh lead 1–0 in the 3-match series.
