Sunil Gavaskar has explained why Rohit Sharma-led Team India lost the first one-day international to Bangladesh on Sunday, defending KL Rahul. In the low-scoring match, Rahul missed a catch by Mehidy Hasan Miraz that could have changed the outcome. Sunil Gavaskar, a legendary Indian cricketer, may have revealed the real reason for India’s heartbreaking loss to Bangladesh on Sunday.
In the first One Day International (ODI), Bangladesh, led by Litton Das, defeated Team India, led by Rohit Sharma, by one wicket at the Bangla National Stadium.KL Rahul, an Indian batsman, became the talk of the town after missing a perfect catch in a low-scoring match. Netizens slammed Rahul for missing the crucial catch, despite his superb performance for the Virat Kohli-led team.
On the 17th, wicketkeeper Rahul dropped Bangladesh’s Mehidy Hasan Miraz, paving the way for the hosts to punish India in the low-scoring thriller at Dhaka. Gavaskar, a batting legend, has spoken out in support of the wicketkeeper-batsman who is under fire at a time when Rahul is under fire for dropping a sitter. You really can’t say that was the end. Indeed, I believe that was the last wicket.
That ought to have ended the match. However, you should take into consideration India’s 186 scores as well. The bowlers performed exceptionally well to position themselves at 136-9. They had a little luck with that drop catch, but Hasan Miraj played very well. Then he came. He played with tact. They played some daring shots as they attacked the opposition. But India scored at least 80-70 fewer runs, and if they had 250, it could have been a different game.
Rohit, the skipper, scored 27 runs off 31 balls, while Virat Kohli, the former captain, scored 9 runs off 15 balls. In the absence of India’s primary wicketkeeper, Rishabh Pant, Rahul led the Indian middle order and took wickets, scoring a blistering 73 off 70 deliveries. India reached a modest total thanks to Rahul’s entertaining shot, which Bangladesh ultimately defeated in 46 overs.
