Bangladesh bagged the first match in the T20I series and they did it with a decent margin. The team had been in form from beginning and at many points, the game reflected some chance of Bangladesh winning. Well, given everything that the team had been through in last 2 weeks or so, they sure needed this win.
The match saw good efforts from both teams. In chasing 149 runs, Bangladesh had a rough starting, having lost Liton Das in the very first over. Mohammad Naim, though, stuck around until the eight over building a good partnership. Most of the remaining match was driven by Mushfiqur Rahim who joined hands with Sarkar to drive the team to victory. After Sarkar departed in the 17th over, he fired 4 consecutive boundaries getting the team much closer to the target.
There is a chance that India underestimated the visitors given that the team didn’t have many of its important players, including the former skipper Shakib Al Hasan who is on a ban for two years. Moreover, never in the history has Bangladesh beaten India in a T20I.
