India trounced Bangladesh by 256 runs in 41.3 overs thanks to an unbeaten 103 from Virat Kohli, who hammered six fours and four sixes in his 97-ball innings. Openers Shubman Gill and Rohit Sharma also contributed, with Gill scoring 53 and Sharma 48.
Mehedi Hasan Miraz, an off-spinner for Bangladesh, took two wickets for 47 runs, and Hasan Mahmud took one.
After reaching fifty, Gill decides to go.
Shubman Gill, India’s opener, was out after scoring 53 off of 54 balls, and his team was two runs behind Bangladesh’s 256 for eight in the 20th over of Thursday’s ICC World Cup match in Pune.
Gill attempted a loft over deep midwicket on his way down the wicket, but Mahmudullah collected a fine catch on the boundary line.
This came Shreyas Iyer to the crease, with Virat Kohli still at the other end, having scored 34 runs without being dismissed off 25 balls.
Hasan Mahmud lands a bouncer on Rohit.

A fantastic beginning for India
In the ICC Cricket World Cup match between India and Bangladesh on Thursday in Pune, India’s opening pair of Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill got off to a good start by scoring 68 runs in the first 11 overs.
Rohit scored 41 off of 37 balls with seven fours and a six, and Gill struck 27 steadily off of 29 balls with two fours and as many sixes.
Bangladesh scores 256-8 against India thanks to centuries from Liton and Tanzid.
In their World Cup match against India on Thursday in Pune, Bangladesh’s opening pair of Liton Das and Tanzid Tamim both scored fifty runs to assist their team reach 256 for eight.
Liton scored 66 runs (off 82 balls) and Tanzid hit 51 runs (off 43 balls) to put together Bangladesh’s highest opening stand in a World Cup match (although the rest of the batting lineup couldn’t capitalise).
Mushfiqur Rahim, who has been in good form recently, scored 38 off of 46 balls before being caught by Ravindra Jadeja at backward point, and Mahmudullah Riyad, who batted late in the innings and hit three fours and as many sixes in his 36-ball knock, was castled by a Jasprit Bumrah yorker that crashed onto the root of his middle-stump.
Two wickets were taken by Bumrah, one by Jadeja, and one by Mohammad Siraj.
After Bangladesh won the toss and elected to bat first, openers Liton and Tanzid put together a 93-run stand, which was more than their 69-run stand against Pakistan in the 1999 World Cup.
Liton took 14 balls to get on base as the pair started slowly, scoring only 10 runs in the first five overs.
However, the Tigers’ following five overs were quite fruitful after their opener started going down the wicket to disrupt the bowlers’ lengths. After the Powerplay, Bangladesh scored 63 runs without losing any wickets, with the openers contributing 53 of those total.
Soon after, Taznid scored his first fifty in an ODI, however he fell short of a massive score. After putting on a record 93-run stand with fellow opener Liton, he was caught lbw by Kuldeep Yadav in the 15th over, taking 41 balls to reach the milestone. He did it by hitting five fours and three sixes.
Bangladesh were two down for 110 after 20 overs, and their captain, Najmul Hossain Shanto, was dismissed without making an impact after facing only 17 balls and scoring eight runs. He was out when he misjudged the length of a regulation Ravindra Jadeja ball and was trapped in front while attempting to tuck it through the leg side.
Mehedi Hasan Miraz was unexpectedly moved up the order to number four by the team’s management, a decision that backfired when he disrupted the flow of runs with a three-run knock off 13 balls.
Mushfiqur looked solid while batting for his 38 off of 46 balls, but Towhid Hridoy laboured for every run in his 16 off of 35 balls before being removed.
Nasum Ahmed chipped in with a 14 off of 18 balls, and between his and Mahmudullah’s efforts, Bangladesh were able to reach a score higher than 250.
Mushfiqur is rebuffed by a stunning shot from Jadeja.
In the 43rd over, off the bowling of Jasprit Bumrah, India all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja performed a stunning catch at backward point to dismiss the in-form Bangladesh batsman Mushfiqur Rahim.
Mushfiqur, batting right-handed, scored 38 runs off of 46 balls before he was dismissed by Jadeja with a brilliant catch. Bumrah delivered it short and wide, and while he made adequate contact when he cut it with force, Jadeja flew to his right with an outstretched right-hand as he took the catch.
When the 43rd over ended, Bangladesh’s score was 201, having lost six wickets (including Mushfiqur) as India worked its way through the lower order.
With Mahmudullah still not out on 14, Nasum Ahmed walked to the crease.
Hridoy put to death as Tigers fall down 5-0
Towhid Hridoy, batting for Bangladesh, had been having trouble in the middle of the order until the 38th over of the game on Thursday in Pune, when he attempted to hit India pacer Shardul Thakur beyond the line.
The day’s fifth batter, a righty, batted slowly for 16 over the course of 35 balls before he was out trying to hit his way out of difficulty. As he attempted to lob one to Shubman Gill at short midwicket, he was run out.
At the conclusion of the 38th over, the Tigers were five runs short of their target of 181, bringing Mahmudullah Riyad to the crease with Mushfiqur Rahim still undefeated on 31 off 35 balls.
Bangladesh are four down when Liton bats for 66.
The Tigers were four wickets down for 137 after 28 overs when opening batsman Liton Das took his wicket away while trying to loft India’s left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja over long-off. Das had scored 66 from 82 balls.
The Tigers are having trouble, once again, finishing off strong innings of hitting.
Tigers lose by three runs after Siraj dismisses Miraz.
Mehedi Hasan Miraz, an all-rounder for Bangladesh, was caught behind as he failed to hit India fast bowler Mohammad Siraj’s length ball sliding down the leg side in the 25th over of the game, putting the Tigers three wickets down at 131.
Miraz had trouble changing the strike and was out after 12 balls and 3 runs.
With Liton Das still unbeaten on 64 runs off 74 balls, this brought Towhid Hridoy to the crease.
Twelve ODI fifties for Liton
On Thursday at Pune, India, Bangladesh’s opening batsman Liton Das scored his 12th ODI fifty.
Liton hit the century on 62 balls, tucking one away for a single in the 22nd over to help the Tigers reach 114.2 for the loss of 2 wickets. After a cautious start that saw him take 14 balls to get on the board, he exploded for five fours.
Against England in Bangladesh’s second encounter of the tournament in Dharamshala, he scored 76 runs, giving him two fifty-plus scores in the tournament.
Shanto, captain of the Tigers, is sent out for eight runs.
Najmul Hossain Shanto, captain of the Bangladeshi team, was dismissed after hitting eight runs off of 17 balls in Thursday’s World Cup match against India in Pune.
Bangladesh were two down for 110 after 20 overs when Shanto was out for a duck trying to tuck a normal Ravindra Jadeja ball through the leg side but misjudged the length of the ball and was caught in front.
In his final ODI, Tanzid Tamim scored his first fifty goals.
In Thursday’s World Cup match in Pune, India’s left-arm spinner Kuldeep Yadav dismissed the Bangladeshi opener Tanzid Tamim lbw for 51 off of 43 balls.
With five fours and three sixes in his 41-ball innings, Tanzid helped put together a 93-run stand with fellow opener Liton Das, who hit 37 off 43 balls up until the 14-over mark.
However, India finally got their first wicket in the next over when Tanzid mishit a sweep shot off a straight delivery.
After the 15th over, the Tigers were one run short at 94.

As part of an unprecedented 90-run undefeated stand with fellow opener Liton Das, who hit 37 off 43 balls up till the 14-over mark, Tanzid reached the benchmark in just 41 balls.
Tigers’ openers scored fifty in a row.
After the first 10 overs of Thursday’s World Cup match between Bangladesh and India in Pune, the Tigers were off to a good start thanks to a 63-run partnership between openers Liton Das and Tanzid Tamim.
Only 10 runs were scored by the openers in the first five overs of the Powerplay, but in the next five, Tanzid and Liton increased the ante by coming down the wicket in an effort to unsettle the India pacers.
The openers’ strategy paid off handsomely, as they scored 53 runs in the next five overs to conclude the Powerplay with 63 runs on the board and no wickets down.
Tanzid scored 40 off 30 balls thanks to four fours and three sixes, whereas Liton scored 21 off 30 balls thanks to four fours.

Bangladesh, commanded by Shanto, elects to bat before India despite Shakib’s absence.
Vice-captain Najmul Hossain Shanto walked out for the toss during today’s World Cup match between Bangladesh and India at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune, but regular captain Shakib Al Hasan will be absent. After winning the toss, the Tigers decided to bat first.
“Shakib is having some difficulty. He is crucial to our success, so I pray for a speedy recovery. Shanto announced before the coin toss, “Nasum Ahmed has replaced him.”
After suffering an injury to his left thigh against New Zealand, Shakib was taken for a first scan on Friday. Yesterday, the world-famous batsman went in for a second MRI scan, and the results were due to be released this morning.
The team administration did not publicly announce Shakib’s ailment. The all-arounder, however, has a torn left quadriceps, as previously reported by team director Khaled Mahmud Sujon.
When Bangladesh played New Zealand last Friday in Chennai, they lost by eight wickets, thus they made another alteration to the eleven that played. Hasan Mahmud will start today’s game in lieu of the struggling Taskin Ahmed.
India, meanwhile, started the game with the same eleven players.
