Bangladesh stuck to a stronger response, chasing it down in 46 overs. It cannot be said that it was one-sided from Bangladesh; it must be admitted that bowlers from the two sides were quite similar in performances, whilst the batters did not do much.
Indian bowlers picked nine wickets as Mohammed Siraj turned out as the best with a three-wicket haul of 32 runs. Both Kuldeep Sen and Washington Sundar scalped twice, whereas Deepak Chahar and Shardul Thakur were struck once each.
Saving one wicket and four overs, Bangladesh touched the feat with the courtesies of Litton Das, Shakib, and Mehidy Hasan's batting. The batters scored 41, 29, and 38, respectively, while the rest had underdogs contributions in upbringing the feat.
