Ahmed made the breakthrough for Bangladesh dismissing Pujara. Pujara and Raina added 27 runs for the 4th wicket. Taskin Ahmed, Mortaza and Al-Amin-Hossain kept on picking wickets at regular intervals. Umesh Yadav scored 17 off 13 balls to go beyond the 100 runs mark. Taskin Ahmed was the pick of bowlers for Bangladesh with
figures of 5 for 28.

Mohit Sharma struck twice to dismiss Tamim Iqbal and Anamul Haque. Mohammad Mithun came to the crease taking on the Indian bowlers. At the end of 10 overs, Bangladesh scored 33 for 2. Stuart Binny was bought into the attack in the 10th over. He produced a magical delivery in his 2nd over to dismiss Rahim. Binny then dismissed Mohammad Mithun to bring back India into the game.
