Bangalore witnessed one of the closest cricketing encounters of all time. Bangladesh had almost pulled off an upset when they had got to a stage where they required two from three balls with Mushfiqur Rahim and Mahmudullah at the crease. It will be safe to say that Bangladesh simply choked from there.

Mushfiqur and Mahmudullah went for needless aerial strokes on the leg-side off full tosses from Hardik Pandya. Two good catches ended their stay and with two needed off one, Bangladesh were under pressure. This time Shuvagota Hom missed one outside off, they set off for a run and calm as ever, MS Dhoni ran in and ran Mustafizur Rahman out. ICC World T20 2016, Super 10, Pick of the Tweets: India vs Bangladesh at Bangalore
