India reach 146 for the loss of 7 wickets at the end of their innings against Bangladesh in Bengaluru on Wednesday.

Over 19: 14 runs off the over. Ind 137/6

Over 18: 5 runs off the over. Ind 123/6

Over 17: 4 runs and a wicket from the over. Ind 118/6

16.5 Mahmudullah to Yuvraj Singh, OUT

It wasn’t the pitch for Yuvi, and he won’t be spending too much time on it. Attempts a pull shot, connects only with his top edge and is safely caught at short fine leg. He’s fallen to the part-time spinner.

Over 16: 2 runs and two wickets in the over. Ind 114/5

15.2 Al-Amin Hossain to Pandya, OUT

The outfield is his territory. That’s his happy place and he has pulled off a blinder of a catch! Pandya nailed that. The pull short was skimming away to the square leg boundary - and it was flat too. A clear measure of how much power it had. But Soumya runs to his left, dives and clings on with both hands.

15.1 Al-Amin Hossain to Raina, OUT

Raina holes out at midwicket! He’s been scratchy tonight. Changed his bat. Run down the pitch. Moved around in the crease. And here, he tries to pull a short ball and gets under it too much. Sabbir takes another good catch running in

Over 15: 11 runs from the over. Ind 112/3

Over 14: 17 runs and a wicket off the over. Ind 101/3

13.4 Shuvagata Hom to Kohli, OUT

The stumps light up behind him, which means out for Kohli. Goes for a sweep to a quicker ball from Shuvagata and with him playing with only half a bat, the percentages aren’t with him.

Over 13: 5 runs off the over. Ind 84/2

Over 12: 6 runs off the over. Ind 79/2

Over 11: 14 runs off the over. Ind 73/2

Over 10: 7 runs off the over. Ind 59/2

Over 9: 3 runs off the over. Ind 52/2

Over 8: 4 runs off the over. Ind 49/2

Over 7: 3 runs and a wicket off the over. Ind 45/2

6.6 Shakib Al Hasan to Dhawan, OUT

Shakib trapped him in front! It didn’t seem all that threatening. Perhaps a touch quicker, and that did not allow Dhawan the time he needed to bring his bat down.

Over 6: Eventful over as 15 runs and a wicket came off it. Ind 42/1

5.6 Mustafizur Rahman to Sharma

The lack of pace forces Rohit to lose his best chance of timing this. He loses his shape, he goes across the line, he was looking to make up for being deceived by powering the ball away. All he does though is get a top edge and the skier is well held at midwicket.

Over 5: 4 runs off the over. Ind 27/0

Over 4: 6 runs off the over. Ind 23/0

Over 3: 8 runs off the Al-Amin over. Ind 17/0

Over 2: 4 runs off the over. Ind 9/0

Over 1: 5 runs came from the first over. Ind 5/0

Galvanised by the win over arch-rivals Pakistan, a confident India will be looking for yet another colossal victory and inch closer to the semifinals when they square off against an embattled Bangladesh in the ICC World Twenty20 at Bengaluru on Wednesday.

The hosts are precariously placed in fourth spot of Group Two after one defeat and one win and desperately need an emphatic victory against Bangladesh to boost their run rate as they bid for a semi-finals berth.

India XI: Rohit, Dhawan, Kohli, Raina, Yuvraj, Dhoni (c), Pandya, Jadeja, Ashwin, Nehra, Bumrah

Bangladesh XI: Tamim, Mithun, Sabbir, Shakib, Soumya, Mahmudullah, Mushfiqur, Shuvagata, Mashrafe, Al-Amin, Mustafizur
