IND vs BAN 2022: “Not not a single one yorker bowled with 50 runs to get” – Fans criticize Men in Blue’s killing bowling in 1st ODI



Team India experienced a narrow one-wicket defeat in the 1st ODI of their three-match series against Bangladesh, on Sunday, fourth December. The Indian batters fought and could only secure 186 on a wicket that looked tough for batting.

KL Rahul batted brightly and secured a half-century. Although, his fifty went in conceited as the Indian bowlers could not take the final wicket of the home team.

A magnificent bowling performance from Mohammed Siraj, Washington Sundar, Kuldeep Sen, Shardul Thakur, and Deepak Chahar support India reduce Bangl adesh to 136/9 in 39.3 overs. With 51 runs left to chase, Bangladesh was on the edge of defeat.

The no.11 batter Mustafizur Rahman was on the pitch and wasn’t normal to hang nearby for long. Although, the Men in Blue were unsuccessful to break the Tenth-wicket stand. Bangladesh all-rounder Mehidy Hasan Miraz performed a match-winning inning of 38 from 39 balls and saw his team through.

Team India’s bowling and fielding were not the finest when Mustafizur Rahman and Mehidy Hasan Miraz were batting in the middle. KL Rahul dropped an easy catch, and Washington Sundar lost one too.

Here’s how the Indian fans on Twitter responded to the performance of the bowlers in the final phase of the match:


Bangladesh win First ODI vs. India through an astonishing last-wicket Partnership 

After Bangladesh missed their 9th wicket, Mustafizur kept one end up and secured 10 runs from 11 deliveries. He and Mehidy sewed together a successful partnership of 51 runs for the 10th wicket to guide Bangladesh to a single-wicket victory.

Admitting too many runs against tailenders has been an unfluctuating problem for India. In the past, they have lost some crucial matches due to this very basis, and today, even in ODIs, the Indian bowlers are confronting this issue.

Caption Rohit Sharma was still glad for his bowlers and darned the batters for the team’s defeat. Here’s what he said at the after-match presentation:

“It was a very close game. We did pretty well to come back into that position. We didn’t bat well. 184 wasn’t good enough. We bowled pretty well and kept them under pressure but they held their nerves to get the required runs at the backend. If you look back to how we bowled from ball one, it was good.”
