Podcast: Team India clean sweeps Bangladesh for the sixth time, the most expensive bid of 18 crores in IPL


In response to the target of only 145 runs for victory in the second and final Test played in Mirpur, India lost their four important wickets Shubman Gill, KL Rahul, Cheteshwar Pujara and Virat for just 45 runs at the end of the third day of the match. Kohli lost his form. India lost their seven wickets for 74 runs while playing ahead of 45 runs on four wickets on the fourth day of the match. Pant, who scored a brilliant 93 runs in the first innings, could only score 9 runs in the second innings. In such a situation, the danger of defeat was looming in front of the Indian team, but under pressure, Ravichandran Ashwin once again showed his hand in batting and played an unbeaten and decisive innings of 42 aggressive runs. Ashwin shared a 71-run partnership with Shreyas Iyer for the eighth wicket to spoil Bangladesh’s hopes of victory. Shreyas Iyer batted with understanding and patience and kept one end intact. Iyer remained unbeaten after scoring 29 runs. Mehdi Hasan Miraz took 5 wickets for Bangladesh in the second innings. Shakib Al Hasan took 2 wickets.

The Indian team that played in Unadkat’s debut match included Gautam Gambhir, Virender Sehwag, Rahul Dravid, Sachin Tendulkar, VVS Laxman, Suresh Raina, MS Dhoni, Harbhajan Singh, Ishant Sharma and S Sreesanth.
