Bangladesh was getting hard to come final. Players almost come to blows after Bangladesh’s win over India
At stating itself Bangladesh drops the wickets but middle-order batsman holds the match till the end.
In a low-scoring final, Bangladesh first choked India to a meager 177 in 47.2 overs and then did well enough to score a revised target of 170 in 42.1 overs under the DLS method.
The star of the day was Bangladesh’s 18-year-old captain Akbar Ali, who showed nerves of steel with a patient 43 not out off 77 balls, which negated more fancied opponent Yashasvi Jaiswal’s 88 off 121 balls.
India’s cricketing battles with Bangladesh have been filled with acrimony over the last few years and the theme continued in this game too, with players from both sides nearly coming to blows after the emotionally charged game.
