Asia Cup 2023 IND vs BAN Live: Shubman Gill’s heroic century falls short as India stumbles in chase against Bangladesh

In the midst of an intense Asia Cup Super 4 clash between India and Bangladesh, opener Shubman Gill’s valiant innings came to an end at 121 runs, leaving India with seven wickets down in their pursuit of a 266-run target set by Bangladesh. The dynamic duo of Tanzim Hasan Sakib and Mahedi Hasan proved their mettle by securing two wickets each, while the seasoned campaigners Shakib Al Hasan and Mustafizur Rahman contributed with one wicket apiece.

In the earlier innings, it was Shakib with his 80 runs and Tohwid Hridoy’s determined 54 that propelled Bangladesh to a respectable total of 265 for 8. Indian skipper Rohit Sharma’s strategic decision to field first bore fruit, with Shardul Thakur emerging as India’s bowling ace, claiming three crucial wickets.


The pivotal moment arrived when Mahedi Hasan sent a well-flighted delivery wider outside off, tempting Shubman Gill to attempt a lofted shot. However, Gill failed to achieve the necessary elevation, resulting in the ball sailing towards long-off, where Towhid Hridoy sprinted to take a remarkable catch on the move.
