India vs Bangladesh Live Score, Cricket World Cup 2023: India continue to chip away with wickets to bring Bangladesh down to their last four wickets for just over 200 runs. Their last-recognised pairing of Mahmudullah and Mushfiqur Rahim was ended by a special piece of fielding by Ravindra Jadeja, whose outrageous catch at point gave Jasprit Bumrah his first wicket. This meant that all Indian bowlers – barring Hardik Pandya and Virat Kohli who combined to bowl just 6 balls – have now picked wickets.

Earlier, Tanzid Hasan and Litton Das scored a brilliant half-century to give him team a spanking start, but Kuldeep Yadav ended the opener’s innings shortly after to give India a much-needed breakthrough. The Indian team wasted no time capitalizing on this success, securing more quick wickets. Ravindra Jadeja dismissed Najmul Hossain Shanto, while Mohammed Siraj sent Mehidy Hasan packing. Things went from bad to worse for Bangladesh as Jadeja’s second saw India getting rid of the well-set Das. This flurry of action unravelled after Bangladesh stand-in captain Shanto won the toss and opted to bat in their World Cup match at Pune. Initially, the Bangladesh openers faced a challenging start as Siraj and Bumrah found their line and length straightaway, but Tanzid and Litton Das eventually found their rhythm. India faced a setback when Hardik Pandya sustained an ankle injury and had to leave the field but thankfully for them, wickets in the middle overs meant that the Men in Blue were back in the game

With Afghanistan and the Netherlands doing the unthinkable, two major upsets have already rocked this World Cup, and if there is one more team well-suited to pull off another unexpected result, it’s Bangladesh against India today at the MCA Stadium in Pune. Bangladesh have defeated India a few times – not much – but enough for it not to be called an upset anymore. In fact, Bangladesh have beaten India three times in the last four ODIs played between the two sides, and yet, every time it happens, it’s an outcome no one sees coming.

India’s rivalry with Bangladesh may not be as big as the one they share against Pakistan, but it has its own charm. Even after years of battling each other for certain close results, the gulf between India and Bangladesh has only widened. The rivalry which began on a lukewarm note in 2000 when ‘big brothers’ India handed Bangladesh their Test debut, things took an unprecedented turn in 2007, when Tamim Iqbal, Mashrafe Mortaza and Mushfiqur Rahim stunned the Men in Blue at the World Cup in the West Indies. India got their revenge four years later but every time there is a World Cup match between the two, sparks fly.

India have been unstoppable thus far in the 2023 World Cup – they have looked more dominant with every passing game – a far cry from how Bangladesh have fared. Already grappling with the blow-up featuring Tamim Iqbal and captain Shakib-Al-Hasan, Bangladesh won against Afghanistan but were slapped with defeats against powerhouses England and New Zealand. To add to their woes, Shakib, who missed the New Zealand contest with a left quad injury, remains in doubt. The Bangladesh captain is showing improvement but a final call will be taken after monitoring his progress during Tuesday’s and Wednesday’s practice sessions.

Here are some key pointers surrounding the India vs Bangladesh World Cup 2023 match:

– Bangladesh won the toss and chose to bat first

– Tanzid Hasan and Litton Das were off to a slow start but then picked it up to the point that they broke the record for highest opening stand for Bangladesh in World Cups

– Tanzid scored a half century and fell to Kuldeep on 51 off 43 in the 15th over, with the stand thus ending on 93

– India then fought back with three relatively quick wickets while Litton Das moved past 50

– Mushfiqur Rahim anchored the lower middle order before he fell to Bumrah thanks to a screamer of a catch from Jadeja

– India have a 3-1 record against Bangladesh in World Cups.

– In the last four ODIs played between the two teams, Bangladesh have beaten India thrice.
