Bangladesh defeated India by 1 wicket in the first ODI.
Both the teams will be face to face in the second match on 7th December.
New Delhi. The Indian team played the first match of the ODI series against Bangladesh (India vs Bangladesh) on Sunday. Like New Zealand, this series has also started with a defeat. India was disappointed by the bowling in the first match against the Kiwi team, but here the reason is different. Team India lost this match due to their poor batting and very poor fielding, after which many veteran players are seen taking classes.
Actually, the Indian team, coming out to bat first, gave the target of only 187 runs to the hosts thanks to KL Rahul’s 73 runs. No other batsman of Team India could even touch the figure of 30. But after that the bowlers made a comeback in the match, but the fielders turned their backs on him. Bangladesh’s number 10 pair defeated India by 1 wicket. During the 43rd over, two catches were in the air, first the ball slipped from the hands of KL Rahul. At the same time, young player Washington Sundar saw the ball falling in front of him and did not even try to catch the catch. The guests had to bear the brunt of the defeat. Meanwhile, the team’s star player Dinesh Karthik has also given his honest response regarding fielding.
Washington Sundar should have gone ahead – Dinesh Karthik
Regarding Team India’s poor fielding, Karthik said, ‘Obviously KL Rahul missed the catch due to fall and Sundar did not go for the catch, don’t know why he did not come in. May be it was because of the light. I don’t know this but if he had seen the ball, he would have gone ahead. This is a question only he can answer. Overall the fielding effort was 50-50. Not the best day, not the worst day either. I think in the end, with pressure, we also left some boundaries.

Batsman battered in front of Shakib Al Hasan
Shakib Al Hasan created havoc against India in Dhaka. He did not let the batsmen of the visiting team survive. First, veteran players like captain Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli were shown the way to the pavilion, and then the lower-order batsmen were also made to walk. He took 5 wickets for just 36 runs in his 10-over spell. Apart from this, Ibadat Hussain also took 4 wickets by bowling brilliantly.
