INDIA/BANGLADESH: Former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag made fun of Rohit Sharma’s squad after they lost their ODI series against Bangladesh. Talking about team India’s loss, Sehwag said, “The Indian national team is sinking quicker than cryptocurrencies.”

After MS Dhoni, who was the recipient of this unfortunate statistic back in 2015, Rohit Sharma is the only other Indian captain to lose an ODI series.

The Indian team lost the matches due to poor batting performance. India was bowled out for just 186 runs in the opening game, but their bowling attack put on a valiant effort to keep them in the contest.

India would have won the first ODI with certainty if it weren’t for Mehidy Hasan’s unbeaten 38.

The Indian bowling lineup maintained its first-match form in the second game. In the first 20 overs, the squad eliminated 6 Bangladesh batters, but Mehidy Hasan Miraz and previous skipper Mahmudullah persevered to save Bangladesh again.

Mehidy posted a respectable 271 runs in the second ODI by scoring a century on the last ball of the first innings.

Shreyas Iyer and Axar Patel had to step in and save the Indian batting order as they once again failed to hold their heads up. Rohit Sharma, who had to be taken to the hospital after hurting his left thumb, was not in India’s top order.

Rohit Sharma came to bat at number nine and batted outstanding innings of 51* off 28 balls. India came alarmingly close to the goal but missed it by five runs.

Rahul Dravid praised the Indian captain’s efforts and said he would return to Mumbai for additional injury examinations.
