Top 3 ODI batting performances by Indian batsmen against Bangladesh

Team India will travel to Bangladesh for a multi-format series after their white-ball tour of New Zealand is over.
A three-match ODI World Cup Super League series and a two-game ICC World Test Championship rubber will pit the two Asian teams against one another.

On December 4, the Sher-E-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Dhaka will host the opening one-day international. Additionally, the following two ODIs will be played on December 7 and 10.

In their three one-day international matches against New Zealand, the Men in Blue fielded a young team. However, regular senior players like Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and KL Rahul are expected to return to the team in Bangladesh.

In contrast, the hosts suffered a significant setback prior to the series when their designated skipper, Tamim Iqbal, suffered an injury during a practice session, preventing him from playing in the one-day internationals. The first One-Day International will be without even the fit pacer, Taskin Ahmed.

We look back on three memorable batting performances by the Men in Blue against their Asian rivals as Team India and Bangladesh prepare to resume their ODI rivalry.

#3 Virat Kohli in Fatullah at the 2014 Asia Cup, 136 of 122 balls

One of Virat Kohli’s memorable inning while chasing in one-day internationals occurred in India’s opening match against Bangladesh at the 2014 Asia Cup.

After being asked to bat first, Bangladesh put together a respectable total of 279 in 50 overs thanks to Mushfiqur Rahim’s 117 off 113 runs as captain. With a score of 4/50, Indian bowler Mohammad Shami stood out.

Kohli’s brilliant play took the game away from the opposition when India started to bat. When Kohli decided to launch a counterattack, India lost both their openers, Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan, within a span of five runs.

With the assistance of 16 fours and a few sixes, the former India captain struck 136 off 122 at a magnificent strike rate of 111.48. He and Ajinkya Rahane (73) put together a crucial 213-run partnership for the third wicket.

Kohli, who was named Man of the Match, led India’s swift chase down the target and helped them win the match by six wickets.

#2 Rohit Sharma at the 2015 World Cup, who scored 137 runs off 127 balls in Melbourne

While he will also score a century against Bangladesh at the 2019 ODI World Cup, Rohit’s 137-run score against the Bangla Tigers at the 50-over World Cup in 2015 will rank right up there with one of his personal bests in the format.

In a quarterfinal match that needed to be won, it ended up in a tough situation.
After 28 overs, India was struggling at 115-3 on a bouncy Melbourne track. Rohit and Suresh Raina added 122 runs in 15 overs to form possibly India’s most crucial partnership of the tournament.

Rohit fought his way to his seventh century in a One-Day International against a pumped-up Bangladeshi team that gave their all on the field and made India work hard for every run. Rohit made his century in the seventh ODI.

In order for the Men in Blue to reach a respectable total, they needed someone to bat throughout the innings. Rohit took responsibility and helped India reach 302, which was enough to get India into the World Cup semi-finals, where India would face Bangladesh.
Rohit scored 137 runs off 127 balls with a strike rate of 108.7, scoring 14 boundaries and three sixes.

#1 Virender Sehwag in Dhaka at the 2011 World Cup, 175 off 140 balls

Virender Sehwag set a new record by scoring 175 off 140 balls in the first match of the 50-over World Cup.
The former Indian opener calmed the nerves by scoring a boundary on the very first ball, giving early indications that the 2011 World Cup would be significant for India.

As he tossed the ball into every nook and cranny of the field, he set the Bangladeshi bowlers on a leather hunt. The right-handed batter struck 14 fours and five sixes for a belligerent 175, driving, pulling, and lofting flawlessly.

In his World Cup debut, Kohli also scored a hat trick. India set Bangladesh a staggering 371-run target as the two Delhi boys battered the bowlers. The Tigers lost by 87 runs, which was always going to be a huge challenge.

Munaf Patel scored a four-fer for India, while Tamim Iqbal posted a score of 70.
Sehwag’s heroic knock earned him the Player of the Match award, eagerly anticipated.
