India’s No. 3 saw an opportunity to get a ton when Hasan was bowled for a six, and Rahul happily delivered on the other end.

India controlled the middle part of the innings, with the scoring rate also declining. Now, it was up to Mahmudullah and Mushfiqur Rahim, Bangladesh’s seasoned team, to lead their country to a victory. While Rahim kept the scorecard ticking, India struck again just before he could tee off at the death with a little more than seven overs remained in the innings.
