Bangladesh find themselves in a insecure position as they prepare to face India in the fifth T20I of the Nidahas Trophy Tri-series on Wednesday.

Had Mushfiqur had an equally capable partner, Bangladesh might have made a game of it. Mahmudullah holed out in the ninth over, trying to hit a six off Chahal.

WICKET! Washington Sundar is on fire here, as he has just got his third wicket.

"Washington has been courageous to take the ball from me, not afraid to flight the ball, and he's very clear on what he wants to execute".

50 - With Liton Das's stumping off Sundar's bowling, Dinesh Karthik became the fourth wicket-keeper in T20 history to affect 50 stumpings after Kamran Akmal, MS Dhoni and Kumar Sangakkara.

In the six overs between 14th and 19th, India scored nearly 14 per over, and Rohit reaped 37 off 15 balls. Indian skipper Rohit Sharma not being able to finish his spell of four overs in two of three games. The partnership was broken when Rubel Hossain cleaned up Shikhar Dhawan on 35 (27).

Bangladesh will have a huge task in hand when they come on to bat and would take some inspiration from their chase of 214 against Sri Lanka recently in the same tournament.

Eagles Retain Bradham Despite Hot Market
If the Eagles trade or release Kendricks before June 1, they will incur $3.2 million in dead cap for 2018 and save $4.4 million. The Eagles have agreed to bring back Nigel Bradham on a five-year deal worth roughly $40M.

He was ably supported by Suresh Raina (47 off 30 balls), who hit five fours and two sixes.

In reply, India lost Rohit Sharma early, yet again with Shikhar Dhawan following suit.

After a scrappy start in the first over bowled by Abu Nider, Rohit got going with a punch wide of mid-on off Nazmul Islam.

If India fail to clinch the victory today, the Rohit Sharma-led side's future in the series would then rely on the fixture between Sri Lanka and Bangladesh on Friday.

Despite beating Sri Lanka by six wickets on Monday, captain Rohit Sharma's form in the tournament continues to be a worry. In the bowling section, IPL's costliest Indian-bowler buy was Jaydev Unadkat has proven expensive in all last three T20 matches.

Tottering at 40/3, Bangladesh's hopes were further dented when leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal (1/21) saw the back of skipper Mahmudullah (11) caught by Lokesh Rahul. One of India's most successful white ball players in recent times, the talented Mumbaikar is waiting for that one big knock that will propel him back to form.
