A glorious century from Liton Das went futile as a collaboration drove India to a three-wicket prevail upon Bangladesh in the last of the Asia Cup 2018 on Friday. Bangladesh so close yet so far from Asia Cup 2018 final.
Till date, he had no fifty, his most astounding score being the 41 he made against Afghanistan in the Super Four a couple of days back. Be that as it may, on this day, Liton Das scored a century that carved his name ever. However, he must be on the losing side come the day’s end.
Pursuing an adaptable focus of 223, the Indians made a better than average begin, captain Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan making 35 of every 4.3 overs.
Be that as it may, when Dhawan gave a catch to Soumya Sarkar off an Ariful Islam conveyance, things began to get fascinating.
Just seven runs later, Tigers captain Mashrafe Receptacle Mortaza got Ambati Rayudu captured behind, yet Rohit and Dinesh Karthik made things look agreeable for some time.
Rubel Hossain broke this inexorably unsafe looking organization when Nazmul took a catch to reject Rohit, who hit three fours and three sixes to make 48.
Karthik (37) now made 54 with MS Dhoni before being caught leg before by Mahmudullah.
It looked prepared for another Dhoni (36) great, however, Mustafizur Rahman made him give a catch behind the wicket and in the following over Kedar Jadhav needed to resign hurt, leaving the attach to be anyone’s amusement.
Rubel at that point struck again to expel Ravindra Jadeja (23) to set up a strained wrap-up.
It was Bhubaneshwar Kumar who had the effect with 21 and Jadhav (23) later came back to take India home, with the win falling off the last ball.
Liton hit a fifty in only 33 balls as the secret to send Mehidy Hasan Miraz to open the innings clicked for the Tigers after India captain Rohit Sharma had picked to bowl first.
The couple made 120 in the opening association before Kedar Jadhav struck, with Miraz contributing 32.
Yuzvendra Chahal at that point caught Imrul Kayes (2) leg previously and Mushfiqur Rahim (5) gave a catch to Jasprit Bumrah one over later to hand Jadhav his second wicket of the day.
Mohammad Mithun (2) was the by go, a misconception with Liton bringing about a run-out and Mahmudullah (4) likewise came back to the pavilion soon, getting out in a comparable design like Mushfiq, attempting to pull out all the stops.
Liton kept his diversion, defenselessly observing the others coming and leaving. His innings just arrived at an end because of a questionable choice, which has just turned into the subject of discussion via web-based networking media.
MS Dhoni rushed to oust Liton’s stumps, however, his feet were at stake and third umpire Pole Tucker managed to support India.
Liton hit 12 fours and two sixes in his 121-run innings that was made in 117 balls. Soumya Sarkar included a fundamental 33 off 45 balls to take the Tigers past 200.
Soumya achieved 1000 ODI keeps running on the day, yet his normal of 33.34 says the slack he gets from a portion of the fans is now and again out of line.
For India, Kuldeep Yadav was the key with three wickets while Kedar Jadhav stowed two.
Bangladesh was left to lament three run outs in such an essential match.
They lost the third Asia Cup last with this, yet given the manner in which they made Pakistan, India and Sri Lanka drudge, they can trust the day they will be champions isn’t up until now.
