India 6 wickets down in 48 overs as Bangladesh try to restrict runs in World Cup match

India’s number four Rishabh Pant (48) walked back to the pavilion in the 45th over after Mosaddek Hossain managed to take a shaky catch near the long boundary on a delivery by Shakib Ali Hasan in the World Cup match against Bangladesh at Edgbaston on Tuesday.

India faced another setback as skipper Virat Kohli (26) and Hardik Pandya (0) were both dismissed by Mustafizur Rahman in the 39th over.

India were 237 for the loss of four wickets after 39 overs. MS Dhoni and Rishabh Pant were on the crease.

India had gotten off to an impressive start as openers Rohit Sharma (104) and KL Rahul (77) maintained a high run rate from the get-go and formed a 180-run partnership.

India scored 69 in the first 10 overs — their highest score in the opening powerplay in the ongoing World Cup tournament according to ICC’s Cricket World Cup Twitter account. The men in blue seemed to have regained their batting prowess after their defeat at the hands of England at the same venue on Sunday.
