Chasing 257, the men in blue got off to a quickfire start, thanks to fifties from Shubman Gill and captain Rohit Sharma, who remains India’s top scorer at the tournament thus far.
Indian bowlers restricted Bangladesh to 256/8 in their fourth game of the 2023 ODI World Cup in Pune. It had been an inning after getting a good start from Tanzid and Litton kept losing its way.

Bangladesh won the toss and opted to bat first. Skipper Shakib misses out due to an injury for the visitors and Shanto will lead the side. India will be looking to keep their unbeaten streak intact as they face Bangladesh.
Ind vs Ban Live Score: Player of the match
Virat Kohli: Sorry for stealing it (PoTM award) from Jaddu, I wanted to make a big contribution. I have had a few fifties in World Cups, haven’t really converted them. I just wanted to finish the game off this time around and hang on till the end which is what I have done over the years for the team. I was telling Shubman, even if you dream about a situation like that, you’ll just go back to sleep, you won’t think it’s real. It was a dream start for me, first four balls, two free-hits, a six and a four. Just calms you down gets you into the innings. The pitch was pretty good and it allowed me to play my game – just time the ball, hit the gaps, run hard and get the boundaries whenever needed. There’s a great atmosphere in the change room, we are loving each others’ company, the spirit is there for everyone to see on the field. That’s why it’s translating like that on the field. We understand it’s a long tournament, you need to create some momentum in the change room for the guys to come out and play like this. It’s a special feeling playing at home, playing in front of all these people, we just want to make the most of it.
