Jasprit Bumrah and Ravindra Jadeja spearheaded an impressive India bowling display to restrict Bangladesh to 256 for eight in their World Cup clash in Pune.
Paceman Bumrah led from the front with a typically skilled display, claiming two for 41 – his figures spoiled slightly by being hit for six by Shoriful Islam off the final delivery of the innings – while Jadeja chipped in with an equally useful two for 38.
The pair played a key role in dragging India back into what looks a winning position after Bangladesh’s openers had made a strong start with Tanzid Hasan and Litton Das putting on 93 for the first wicket.
Tanzid (51) perished shortly after completing his half-century with Litton (66) following him 13 overs later following a mini-collapse that saw captain Najmul Hossain Shanto – standing in for the injured Shakib Al-Hasan – and Mehidy Hasan Miraz depart cheaply.
Mushfiqur Rahim (38) was dismissed by a stunning catch by Jadeja at backward point but he had helped stabilise the innings before Mahmudullah added some lusty blows late on with a 36-ball 46.
