India Thrash Bangladesh By 227 Runs, Lose Three-Match Series 1-2

India clinched the series by 227 runs in the third and final ODI in Chattogram on Saturday.

On the back of Kishan’s stupendous effort and Virat Kohli’s first ODI ton since August 2019, India posted a mammoth 409 on the board. The hosts played positively but managed only 182, with only two batters scoring more than 25 runs.

India made some changes to its XI, bringing in wicketkeeper-opener Ishan Kishan for skipper-cum-opener Rohit Sharma. He utilised the opportunity to the fullest, to everyone’s surprise, slamming 210. Incidentally, it was his maiden ODI against the side, while it was the fastest 200 in the format, in just 126 balls, which included 23 fours and nine sixes and had a strike rate of above 160.00. Consequently, social media went berserk with his knock, as India looks on course to go past 400, with Virat Kohli also slamming his 44th ODI ton.

India lost the early wicket of Shikhar Dhawan (3) before Kishan and Kohli added 290 runs for the second wicket.Kishan smashed 24 fours and 10 sixes in a 131-ball knock. Kohli got 113 from 91 balls, hammering 11 fours and 2 sixes.India lost Shreyas Iyer and KL Rahul for paltry scores before Washington Sundar and Axar Patel helped India cross 400.
