Asia Cup: Rohit’s unbeaten 83 powers India to thumping win over Bangladesh
Abu Dhabi [UAE], Sep 22 (ANI): India's stand-in skipper Rohit Sharma's unbeaten 83 off 104 balls powered his side to a thumping seven-wicket win against Bangladesh in their Super Four match of the ongoing Asia Cup here at the Dubai International Stadium. Chasing an easy target of 174 runs, India did not break much sweat and clinched victory with 82 balls to spare. Opting to bowl first, Indian pacers gave some early breakthrough to the team as Bangladeshi openers, Liton Das and Nazmul Hossain Shanto, went back to pavilion after scoring 7 runs each. Shakib Al Hasan, along with wicket-keeper Mushfiqur Rahim, made an effort to build a steady partnership, but it was Indian left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja who took four wickets at the crucial stage leaving the Bangladeshi side struggling to get runs. Another impactful spell with the bowl came from right-arm pacers Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah. Both the bowlers scalped three wickets each to place India in the commanding position.
