Poor effort from Shikhar Dhawan in the field. Anamul nudges one down the wicket and Tamim sets off for a single. The non-striker is denied the run as Dhawan is close to the ball, but instead of walking to the wickets and dislodging the bails, Dhawan dives and misses out on a direct hit. It was a very simple chance missed out by the fielder. Dhoni not impressed. Only five runs scored off that over from Mohammed Shami.
Ravichandran Ashwin comes on to bowl the second over of the match. Bangladesh batsmen can manage only two runs off it.


Tamim Iqbal starts off with a boundary over the slips on the second ball of Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s over. Anamul too joins in his partner as he cracks one through the covers on the fourth ball. The final ball is hit for another four, this time towards the leg side.
