equality for one Virat Kohli The innings played while chasing the target is not a criticism of his batting. Its beauty lies in its repetitive nature, symbolizing his hunger to make every beginning count. On Thursday it helped him score ODI century number 48, which takes him very close to it. man which he carried on his shoulders Famous April Night 2011Before delivering an epic line that made a nation of over a billion people shed tears of joy.

Kohli’s innings, which ultimately turned into a race between his century and victory, was preceded by a flurry of runs. Rohit Sharma And Shubman Gill, Chasing a target of 257, the pair’s opening partnership of 88, which looked well short of a par score, was a dream exhibition of batting aesthetics. Rohit made the initial run with his lazy beauty, ferocious cuts and monstrous pull, and Gill gradually took command to get into top gear.

And after both of them fell behind in the run-up to the game, getting caught in the deep shots that he backed himself to execute 99 times out of a hundred, Kohli got everyone involved in his train of ODI batting , who has scored consistently. Brilliant performances from Shreyas Iyer and KL Rahul sealed India’s fourth win, which now puts them on top with their next opponents New Zealand on Sunday in Dharamsala.

It was he who was established Ravindra Jadeja, with the ball and with his catching on the field. His figures of 2 for 38 may not look like a blockbuster at first glance, but it played a big role in pulling Bangladesh back from an innings that was once moving at a breakneck pace.

0 wickets for 10 runs in five overs, the score became 37 runs in the next four overs. tanzeed hassan Soon got into gear and raced to his maiden ODI half-century off 42 balls. He toyed with Shardul Thakur, trapped Jasprit Bumrah and took him for 6,4,6 in a forgettable opening over and set a marker for the innings. But as soon as the spin came, Kuldeep Yadav broke the 93-run partnership while opening in the 15th over.

Meanwhile, India got a shock hardik pandya faltering Three balls from his opening over, after spraining his left ankle in the follow-through. Then you wondered whether the absence of a sixth bowling option would hurt them. That didn’t happen as Shardul bounced back from his opening over and bowled eight more overs, even taking a wicket before Mahmudullah’s final over caused damage to his figures.

Pandya did not return for the rest of his innings and was not even needed with the bat, but once the excitement of the result subsides, it will quickly become clear how important a player Pandya is to the balance of the team.

Even when Kuldeep slowed down the innings, Jadeja brought life to the visitors with his precise wicket-to-wicket delivery and sent Shanto back. By now, the runs were very short and as the pressure mounted, Liton hit a single straight to long-off to give Jadeja his second wicket. The innings was in build-rebuild-build mode at 137 runs for 4 wickets.

Mushfiqur Rahim played a series of neat paddles and sweeps to keep the scorecard ticking in the hope of taking the innings deep, but the pressure resulted in Tauhid Hridayoy’s struggles – he was on 14 for 32 – with 14 overs remaining. While living, he had to try. Be a little more enterprising, especially if Hridoy is unable to take advantage of it after playing himself.

One such opportunity came from Bumrah’s cutter, when the acrobatic Jadeja, diving with full force to his right, took a sensational catch and dismissed Mushfiqur for 43 runs. It was equally encouraging as Rahul’s brilliant catch down the leg to dismiss Mehidy Hasan. First. The superhit moments on the field continued when Bumrah demolished Mahmudullah with a pin-point yorker, but not before the all-rounder’s 46 had made Bangladesh’s total somewhat respectable.

This established the type of chasing teams to be wary of, sometimes not knowing how hard it is to get to the top. But India’s plans seemed clear. Rohit was not going to tamper with the fundamentals of his revived game, which focuses on attacking the opposition in the powerplay. But on 48, he went for a pull that was just outside the screw, except it turned out to be deep square.

Kohli got two free hits from his first four balls, which he converted into a four and a six, taking his innings straight to class. After this he did not look back. He drove well, raced hard, handled the spin expertly and was particularly careful against the skiddy Hasan Mahmood.

Like Rohit, Gill also fell behind in the run of the game with some lazy shots to indicate that dengue symptoms now seem to be a thing of the past. Shreyas Iyer might have been a little disappointed at not being able to complete the game, especially after playing himself, but the timing of his dismissal was hardly a cause for concern for India. Rahul calmed his nerves before reining in his game and allowing Kohli to achieve the historic feat.

At one point, both India and Kohli needed 19 runs. You briefly wondered if number 48 would have to wait. But it was not needed. With two needed, Nasum fired a down leg in anticipation of a wide which was not given. A ball later, Kohli came out and hit a low full toss into the deep midwicket stand to seal the win.
