    Well and it’s not Sundar. Sundar has to be satisfied being the Emerging Player as Rohit walks away with the Man of the Match. Why do bowlers get a raw deal most of the time? Rohit played a good knock but Bangladesh were derailed early on and a team that chased down 215 four days back were restricted under 160.

    Ind v Ban Live Updates: Mushfiqur cuts it late for a four and follows it with a glorious drive for another boundary. This has been a lone hand, tremendous knock but on a losing cause. No Nagin Dance tonight. Siraj ends with back-to-back dots. India have won by 17 runs and qualified to the tournament final. My man of the match is Washington Sundar.

    Mehedi falls to Siraj’s change of pace. Bangladesh need 27 off 4 balls.

    OUT! Mehedi Hasan Miraz c Suresh Raina b Mohammed Siraj 7 (6)

    Ind v Ban Live Updates: Here is Thakur. Starts with two and then targets the off-stump and Mushi misses. Now a good change of pace, and yields one. This has been fabulous death bowling from Thakur. Another slower and Mehedi gets it away for one. It is slipping away from Bangladesh. Five runs off five balls and the over ends with a dot. Shardul has completely swung the tide to India’s favour. Siraj will have to break Shradul’s record of the second-most expensive over for India to let Bangladesh win. Odds are low.

    Ind v Ban Live Updates: A bit of width for Mushfiqur from Siraj and he has plenty of time to cut it for four. Mushfiqur reaches fifty. What a knock this has been! The little man now ramps it over short fine leg for another boundary. A missed run out opportunity from Raina/Siraj. Mehedi was a goner. Good comeback from Siraj after the initial pounding. He bowls a full toss and Mushi gets it high and he is caught-and-bowled. Is he? Tough on Siraj, it’s a no-ball and the free-hit rocket to thirdman boundary. Good hit from Mehedi. There will be no more Indian effigies burned in Dhaka streets now. Bangladesh need 33 off 2 overs.

    Eight from the Thakur over and he managed to clean up Sabbir. He lets out a loud cry to celebrate. Good comeback from Shardul after the battering he received in his first over.

    OUT! Sabbir Rahman b Shardul Thakur 27 (23)

Hello and welcome to CricketCountry’s live coverage of the Nidahas Trophy 2018. Table-toppers India will take on Bangladesh in the fifth T20I of the tournament. India, with two wins, are topping the table whereas Bangladesh, who suffered a defeat against India and beat Sri Lanka empathically on Saturday are at the bottom. Another win will see India cruise into the tournament finale.

Bangladesh are yet to win a T20I against India. The scoreline reads 6-0 in favour of India. However, Bangladesh pulled off a historic win over Sri Lanka on Saturday, where they chased down 215, the highest successful chase by an Asian side and the fourth highest overall.

This might be Bangladesh’s best opportunity to fill their barren column against India in T20Is. The Rohit Sharma-led India have several of the mainstays missing. Bangladesh too are without the services of Shakib Al Hasan and despite India’s understrength, the fringe players have done remarkably since their defeat against Sri Lanka in the tournament opener.

India may not want to experiment in this crucial encounter with a step away from final and are expected to go in with the same XI, while Bangladesh may drop the out of form Taskin Ahmed.

Here’s my likely XIs:

Bangladesh’s Likely XI: Tamim Iqbal, SoumyaSarkar, Liton Das, Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), Mahmudullah (c), Sabbir Rahman, Mehedi Hasan, Mustafizur Rahman, Abu Jayed, Rubel Hossain, Nazmul Islam

India’s Likely XI: Rohit Sharma (c), Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Suresh Raina, Manish Pandey, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Vijay Shankar, Washington Sundar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Shardul Thakur, Jaydev Unadkat
