Bangladesh pulled off a nail-biting one-wicket win over India in the opening match at the Sher-E-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur on Sunday to take a 1-0 lead in the three-match ODI series.

India got off to a sedate start as they lost their opener Shikhar Dhawan early. Then there was a collapse as they lost captain Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli in quick succession. Soon after there was a 43 run stand between Shreyas Iyer and vice-captain KL Rahul. Then Washington Sundar teamed up with Rahul to add 60 runs for the fifth wicket. But after Sundar fell, there was a collapse as India lost four wickets for just six runs. Towards the end Rahul tried to take maximum strike but fell for 73 off 70 balls with five boundaries and five sixes. In the end India was bowled out for 186 in 41.2 overs. For Bangladesh the two best bowlers were Shakib Al Hasan (5-36) and Ebadoty Hossain (4-47).

In their response Bangladesh lost Najmul Hossain Shanto off the first ball. There was a crucial 48 run third wicket stand between captain Litton Das and Shakib Al Hasan which revived the chase. Thereafter, India managed to trigger a collapse as they went from being 128 for four to 136 for nine as they lost five wickets for just eight runs. India appeared to have sealed the contest. But Mehidy Hasan Miraz did not give up. He survived a dropped chance thanks to the largesse of stand-in wicket-keeper Rahul. Towards the end Miraz added 51 runs for the tenth wicket with Mustafizur Rahman as they snatched win from the jaws of defeat. Bangladesh finished on 187 for nine in 46 overs. For India the best bowlers were Mohammed Siraj (3-32), Kuldeep Sen (2-37) and Washington Sundar (2-17).
