With every on-field encounter, Bangladesh VS India rivalry has evolved. There is never a boring moment when the Asian neighbors face-off. Here’s our top 5-match-pick. Tell us your favorite clash between the two sides.
1) Bangladesh vs India-(26 December 2004):
A failed experiment handed India their first defeat against Bangladesh. Bangladesh consistently struck at critical moments in defending 229.
India fell short by 16 runs, in the absence of rested Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid. For his 31 runs off 39 balls and 2 wickets for 36 runs, Mashrafee Mortaza had been awarded Man-of-the-Match.
This was the third tri-match series ODI. In the first match at Chittagong India had a narrow escape and the home team tried to make a quick comeback. Sridharan Sriram (57) and Mohammed Kaif (49) raised hopes for a victory in the middle with a good partnership, but the Bangladeshis struck at regular intervals to finally win the match with 15 runs. It was their first international victory over India in a match.
2) India V/S Bangladesh (2007 Cricket World Cup )
India’s bid for the ICC CWC got off to the worst start possible. Choosing to bat at a damp pitch, only 191 were conjured up by India’s prolific batsmen.
Tamim Iqbal, Mushfiqur Rahim, and Shakib Al Hasan scored half-centuries to comfortably help the Bangladeshi Tigers cross the line. This was meant to be an easy opener for India at the 2007 ICC World Cup, as they took on a young side of Bangladesh.
Captain Rahul Dravid planned to bat first at Port of Spain but it turned out the decision was incorrect.
For the Indian batsmen and Mashrafe Mortaza (4/38), made early in lanes, the sluggish nature of the pitch was disconcerting. Mohammad Rafique ‘s slow left-arm spin (3/35) and Abdur Razzak’s (3/38) made life even harder for the Indian batsmen as they were bowled out for 191 with only Sourav Ganguly (66) and Yuvraj Singh (47) achieving certain runs beneath their belt.
There was still hope as well as the Indian bowlers started well. But feisty half-centuries from the new crop of batsmen in Bangladesh have led to the tournament’s biggest upset.
Tamim Iqbal (51), Mushfiqur Rahim (56*), and Shakib Al Hasan (53) guaranteed India was relegated to a loss at the biggest stage of cricket. India was eventually knocked out of the tournament in the group phase itself.
3) India vs Bangladesh – (2011 Cricket World Cup )
India met Bangladesh once again in the 2011 ICC World Cup and that was the opener of the Dhaka tournament.
India’s defeat in the last edition to its neighbors meant that this match was billed as a revenge clash between the two co-hosts.
India just blew the fans of Bangladesh every hope of an encore as Virender Sehwag launched a vicious assault on the bowlers. During his 140-ball stay in the middle, the opener slammed 14 boundaries and 5 massive sixes and accumulated 175 runs.
He was ably supported in his first World Cup match by the young Virat Kohli, who remained unbeaten on 100 off 83 balls.
India posted 370/4 and Bangladesh had never had a realistic chance to hunt down the target. The top order batted well but in their 50 overs, Bangladesh managed to score 283/9 and lost the game by 87 runs.
4) India vs Bangladesh – June 17, 2014 –:
This match is remembered for two classic bowling spells which ensured a spectacle turned out to be a low scoring match. Fast bowler Taskin Ahmed made his debut for Bangladesh and at the Sher-e-Bangla Stadium in Mirpur, he made the ball talk on a spicy pitch. Taskin tore the heart out of India’s top order and ended up with 5/28 figures as India was bowled out for a paltry 105.
The chase seemed like a formality for the Bangladesh batsmen but by sending back the openers early, Mohit Sharma gave India a strong start. The military medium of Stuart Binny turned out to be too difficult for the Bangladeshis to deal with, who fell like a pack of cards. Binny took six wickets and Mohit took four as Bangladesh was bowled out for 58. Binny’s 6/4 figures are the best in ODI cricket for an Indian.
5) India V/S Bangladesh – March 19, 2015 –
Defending champions India qualified by winning all their matches to the knockout stage of the 2015 ICC World Cup.
In the semi-final, they faced Bangladesh at the MCG and Dhoni’s men batted first. India started strong but a few dismissals brought Bangladesh back into the contest.
The trouble could have increased as the park’s opener Rohit Sharma was caught in the deep as he attempted to hit a full toss delivery.
Following a lot of protest from the Bangladeshi players, the on-field umpires ruled it as a no-ball (for it was above the waist level).
Rohit Sharma went on to score one century and helped India on the board post 302.
Paceman Umesh Yadav picked up four wickets as the Bangladeshis were wilting under pressure and bowled for 193.
But despite the 109-run loss, Bangladesh cricketers and fans’ overwhelming feeling to date is that they were robbed of a place in the World Cup semi-finals.
1988 Wills Asia Cup – 2nd match, India won by 9 wickets on 27 October 1988 at Chittagong Stadium
40th match in ICC World Cup 2019; India won by 28 runs on Jul 2, 2019, in Edgbaston, Birmingham.
Rohit Sharma scintillating 104 off 92 ball helped India to post an mammoth total off 314 runs in 50 overs. He was adjudged as the man of the match for his fantastic effort.
