Update: Second loss for the hosts. Tamim Iqbal lbw b Bumrah 13 (17b 2×4 0x6) SR: Bumrah to Tamim Iqbal, OUT, a massive appeal from Bumrah and Tamim has to go! He planted his front foot forward and right across his stumps and swung across the line at a good length ball, he missed and was hit flush on the pad. That looked pretty out
Update: Nehra gives India breakthrough. Sends back Soumya Sarkar, caught at mid-off! The length isn’t short enough again to hit across the line but Soumya tries to slog it off the front foot over midwicket, he mis-times it horribly and the ball lobs up towards Pandya who runs forward a few paces to take an easy catch.

India have been able to do well in this tournament. They have beaten all the teams thus far and have done so without much of a problem. They have been several notches better than the second placed Bangladesh who have impressed almost everyone with their game and the nerves they have displayed.
India seem to be thanking their stars that they didnâ€™t face the same fate as they faced the last time when they toured Bangladesh. The team was humiliated with a 2-1 loss at the hands of the Bangladeshi cricket team. The team had never thought that they will face such a humiliating defeat from their neighboring team that thus far was known to be one of the cricket minnows.
Now when the team went on another tour of Bangladesh to take part in Asia Cup 2016 series, fans were apprehensive about the team performance. Nonetheless the team has done extremely well thus far, beating every team without much of a problem thus far.
The biggest test lies before the team. They are taking on Bangladesh in the final of the series. The fact that Bangla team has done well thus far â€“except its loss against India â€“they seem to be in great spirit.
In the meantime the fight for the final will be very difficult indeed. A local mobile service provider runs an advertisement here that mocks India for not acknowledging Bangladeshâ€™s superiority on the field. The Bangladeshi side though has come a long way since the World Cup. In the past year they have won series against Pakistan, India and South Africa. In the Asia Cup Twenty20 they have once again upset the apple cart by beating heavyweights Sri Lanka and Pakistan to reach the final.
There is no denying the fact that Indiaâ€™s batting has added to bangle woes. Indiaâ€™s biggest strength has been their batting that has held its own on wickets that have tilted heavily in favour of the bowlers. The likes of Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma have led the batting line-up with mature knocks. In the bowling department, senior pro Ashish Nehra has combine well with youngsters Jasprit Bumrah and Hardik Pandya to deliver the breakthroughs.
