Asia Cup: Bangladesh defeat India by six runs

by Tauqeer Abbas

Bangladesh has defeated India by six runs in the last match of the super fours of the Asia Cup 2023.

India were all out for 259 runs while chasing 266 runs.

Earlier, Bangladesh set a challenging target of 266 runs for India in the last Super Four match of the Asia Cup at Colombo on Friday.

The match is a tune-up for India, who are already guaranteed to face Sri Lanka during Sunday’s final in Colombo, ahead of the ODI World Cup at home next month.

Earlier, India won the toss and opted to bowl first against Bangladesh.

India have handed up-and-coming batsman Tilak Varma, 20, an ODI debut in the five changes from their previous Super Four win over Sri Lanka.

Twenty20 star Suryakumar Yadav also made the team alongside fast bowlers Mohammed Shami and Prasidh Krishna.

Medium-pace bowler Tanzim Hasan Sakib, 20, has been handed his ODI cap for Bangladesh.

Bangladesh have won just one group match in this tournament and skipper Shakib al Hasan said his team’s performance had been an “eye-opener” before the World Cup begins on October 5.
