A great chance of victory was created. Even in the early hours of the morning of the fourth day of the Dhaka Test on Sunday, the match was completely under the control of Bangladesh. Ravichandran Ashwin and Shreyas Iyer’s unbroken 71-run partnership gave India a 3-wicket win after losing 7 wickets for 74 runs.

Bangladesh needed 6 wickets and India needed 100 runs to win the Mirpur Test. Shakib Al Hasan and Mehdi Hasan Miraj showed hope by playing with such an equation on Sunday, December 25. But Bangladesh missed several opportunities throughout the match. And the last failure was perhaps the biggest. Ravichandran, who got life by 1 run, ended the match with 16 runs in 1 over of Ashwin Miraj.

It is not that Bangladesh had set a target of big runs in front of India to win the Mirpur Test. India is in trouble chasing small targets. Rahul was under a lot of pressure after losing successive wickets. Set to bat with a target of 145 runs to win, Team India ended the third day on 45 for 4 on Saturday (December 24).

The Tigers continued the success of the previous day on Sunday. Shakib Al Hasan’s first success came at the beginning of the day. After that, Mehdi Hasan Miraj picked up 2 more important wickets.

Akshar Patel came out to bat on the fourth day with Jaydev Unadkat. Mehdi Hasan Miraj started bowling. Unadkat opened the scoreboard with 2 runs off the second ball. He survived the umpire’s call for lbw on the third ball. Unadkat hits a huge six off the fourth ball. He took 1 run off the fifth ball.

But in 24.4 overs, Unadkat returned lbw to Shakib. He scored 13 runs off 16 balls with the help of 1 six.

And Rishabh Pant, who was trying to get a quick run after falling to six, could not last long. Pant left the field lbw to Mirage. Added 9 runs to the scoreboard. Akshar Patel was the victim of Mirage after one over. He was threatening Bangladesh by settling down. But by bowling him, Mirage hit the Bharat camp. He scored 34 runs off 69 balls before returning to the dressing room. And in the last innings, Mirage got the taste of five wickets.

But then Ravichandran Ashwin gave life to Mominul Haque. Ashwin survived being run out by Miraj. Muminul could not take the short catch that touched the edge of his bat. Ashwin could have been out in the next ball as well. But the ball goes out near the leg stump.

In the end, Ashwin saved India by 1 run after the failure of Muminul Haque. Ashwin scored 42 runs off 62 balls. He hit 1 six and 4 fours. Shreyas remained unbeaten on 29 runs off 46 balls with 4 fours.

At the end of the match, captain Shakib Al Hasan also expressed disappointment with the team’s fielding, “It’s a bit disappointing.” Because these may have made a big difference. They could have scored 250 instead of 314 in the first innings. There were chances in the second innings as well. These are part of cricket. But it’s disappointing that other teams don’t miss these things, which we do. ‘
