On Wednesday, the Indian team took the field to face Bangladesh in the ICC T20 World Cup 2022. Shakib Al Hasan, the captain of Bangladesh, chose to bowl first after winning the toss. Virat Kohli and KL Rahul’s outstanding effort helped India reach 184 runs off the loss of 6 wickets.

After Bangladesh started off their batting innings in boost, the crowd witnessed some heavy showers during the seventh over of the second innings.

Bangladesh had an upper hand as they were playing with a run rate of approximately 8 or 9 per over and not losing a single wicket, but the rain might have just given team India a advantageous momentum to take some wickets.

But instead, the officials deducted the over to 16 overs and the revised target got back to 151 runs. As the game shortened, Bangladesh gained a positive approach to win the game but will the blues just let go this game after the South Africa loss?
