HIGHLIGHTS

  • 22:19 (IST)

    FOUR! Great shot under pressure from Rahim through the square leg region and he's brought the equation down to 16 runs required off 9 balls.

  • 22:13 (IST)

    Chance! Insult to injury! Krunal Pandya lets a simple catch slip through his fingers in the deep mid wicket boundary, and the ball also goes for four through his fingers. Big chance missed for India, with the possibility of dismissing Mushfiqur Rahim.

  • 22:10 (IST)

    OUT! Khaleel gets the wicket of Soumya Sarkar off a slower ball off the last ball of his over. He went for runs, but redeemed himself by getting the wicket. Sarkar goes for 39 runs, and the score now reads 114/3. Bangladesh need 35 runs off 18 balls.

  • 21:30 (IST)

    FOUR! Mushfiqur Rahim reverse sweeps Krunal Pandya right after coming in to bat, and expresses his intent in the innings straight away. At the end of nine overs, the score reads 61/2.

  • 21:26 (IST)

    OUT! Yuzvendra Chahal takes the wicket of Naim right after being brought back into the bowling attack, and as he skies it, Shikhar Dhawan's safe hands ensure that the catch is taken. Bangladesh are 54/2, and Naim goes for 26 runs.

  • 21:19 (IST)

    FOUR! Khaleel Ahmed has been hit for a four off the first ball by Soumya Sarkar who steps down the track and dispatches the ball through the cover region for a boundary. To be fair, he made a good comeback in the over, and at the end of the over, the score reads 53/1.

  • 20:51 (IST)

    Deepak Chahar opens the bowling for India with Liton Das and Mohammad Naim opening the batting for Bangladesh. Das gets a boundary towards the leg-side early but Chahar gets the last laugh, getting a swinging ball that he just pokes at which is taken by Rahul. 

  • 20:35 (IST)

    Sundar makes more than a few jaws drop with a wonderful shot over long-off that relies as much as timing as anything else. Krunal finishes with a massive six over mid-wicket to ensure India finish at 148-6. 

  • 20:28 (IST)

    OUT! Pant goes for a big shot against Shafiul Islam but only manages to find the man at long-on. India are 120-6 and will require a minor miracle to get even to 140 from here on out. 

  • 20:14 (IST)

    Pant cuts hard at a slightly wide and short ball from Afif and he manages to find the boundary despite the fielder's best efforts. However the over ends with Dube spooning one up back towards the bowler and he does well to hang on to the catch with one hand! 

  • 20:09 (IST)

    SIX! Dhawan dances down the track to Mahmudullah and smacks the ball back over his head. However he has to depart after being sent back by Pant when looking for a second. The opener is run-out and India are in a bit of trouble. 

  • 19:49 (IST)

    OUT! Shreyas goes for the big shot once again but this time he manages to find the fielder at long-off. Aminul gets his man at last and India are in a bit of trouble at 70-3 with only 9.4 overs to play. 

22:34 (IST)

That's that!

22:27 (IST)

And that's that! Bangladesh have beaten India for the first time ever in T20Is, and it's a fairly comfortable win by seven wickets as they finish with a six by Mahmudullah off the bowling of Shivam Dubey. Bangladesh have finished on 154/3, and go 1-0 up in the T20I series.

22:22 (IST)

Bangladesh now only need four runs to win off the last over, as Rahim hits Khaleel for another boundary off the leading edge. It is Shivam Dubey who is going to bowl the last over, a last ditch attempt by Rohit Sharma to salvage the match.

22:21 (IST)

It's the Rahim show! Three back to back boundaries for the Bangladeshi talisman, and he reduces the equation to eight runs required off seven balls. Bangladesh are inching towards their first win over India.

22:19 (IST)

FOUR! Great shot under pressure from Rahim through the square leg region and he's brought the equation down to 16 runs required off 9 balls.

22:13 (IST)

Chance! Insult to injury! Krunal Pandya lets a simple catch slip through his fingers in the deep mid wicket boundary, and the ball also goes for four through his fingers. Big chance missed for India, with the possibility of dismissing Mushfiqur Rahim.

22:10 (IST)

OUT! Khaleel gets the wicket of Soumya Sarkar off a slower ball off the last ball of his over. He went for runs, but redeemed himself by getting the wicket. Sarkar goes for 39 runs, and the score now reads 114/3. Bangladesh need 35 runs off 18 balls.

22:02 (IST)

Sixteen overs have been bowled here, and the score reads 105/2. We are poised for an exciting finish here, as both teams stand a chance of pulling off a win here.

21:56 (IST)

India need Khaleel Ahmed to produce a solid performance towards the end of the innings, and has bowled a fairly economical over to Soumya Sarkar and Mushfiqur Rahim. At the end of 15 overs, the score reads 99/2.

21:49 (IST)

The score reads 82/2, and Washington Sundar has conceded four runs off the last over. Bangladesh look like they are going to go on an all out offensive after India have exhausted the spells of Chahal and Sundar.

21:43 (IST)

Chahal is on fire during his spell, and will have played a big part to claw this match back from the clutches of Bangladesh. He finishes another super, economical over, and at the end of 12 overs, the score reads 78/2 after twelve overs.

21:37 (IST)

Another excellent over from Yuzvendra Chahal! He concedes only one run from the over, and the score reads 62/2. However, India have wasted a review here, when Rishabh Pant thought that there was an edge for a catch which he collected behind the stumps,

21:30 (IST)

FOUR! Mushfiqur Rahim reverse sweeps Krunal Pandya right after coming in to bat, and expresses his intent in the innings straight away. At the end of nine overs, the score reads 61/2.

21:26 (IST)

OUT! Yuzvendra Chahal takes the wicket of Naim right after being brought back into the bowling attack, and as he skies it, Shikhar Dhawan's safe hands ensure that the catch is taken. Bangladesh are 54/2, and Naim goes for 26 runs.

21:19 (IST)

FOUR! Khaleel Ahmed has been hit for a four off the first ball by Soumya Sarkar who steps down the track and dispatches the ball through the cover region for a boundary. To be fair, he made a good comeback in the over, and at the end of the over, the score reads 53/1.

21:13 (IST)

Bangladesh have been doing well so far, and the loss of the wicket has not unnerved the visitors over here. Washington Sundar has been sent for a massive six at the beginning of the sixth over by Soumya Sarkar. The score reads 41/1.

21:01 (IST)

Chahar's second over doesn't yield another wicket but it is far more economical than his first. He is getting some movement both towards and away fromt the batsmen and keeping a good line and length. Bangladesh are 16-1 in 3 overs. 

20:57 (IST)

Washington Sundar shares the new ball with Chahar and his first over is a decent one. His lines and lengths were generally tight and gets a bit of turn as well, making it tough for the batsmen to get him away. Just 4 runs come off the over. 

20:51 (IST)

Deepak Chahar opens the bowling for India with Liton Das and Mohammad Naim opening the batting for Bangladesh. Das gets a boundary towards the leg-side early but Chahar gets the last laugh, getting a swinging ball that he just pokes at which is taken by Rahul. 

20:35 (IST)

Sundar makes more than a few jaws drop with a wonderful shot over long-off that relies as much as timing as anything else. Krunal finishes with a massive six over mid-wicket to ensure India finish at 148-6. 

20:32 (IST)

Washington Sundar ends the over with a big six and India are now 132-6. This is the kind of finish they would have wanted but will be looking to get a few more big ones in the final 6 balls. 

20:28 (IST)

OUT! Pant goes for a big shot against Shafiul Islam but only manages to find the man at long-on. India are 120-6 and will require a minor miracle to get even to 140 from here on out. 

20:26 (IST)

Pant manages to get a boundary that goes over the 'keeper's head with a well-timed pull shot off Al-Amin but the rest of the over is relatively quiet and India can manage to take only 8 runs off the over. 118-5 with 2 overs to go. 

20:21 (IST)

Mustafizur is brought back into the attack and Pant manages to get a boundary off his second ball of the over after running two off the first ball but the over only yields 8 runs. Given the nature of the pitch, anything in the 140-run mark might be competitive. 

20:14 (IST)

Pant cuts hard at a slightly wide and short ball from Afif and he manages to find the boundary despite the fielder's best efforts. However the over ends with Dube spooning one up back towards the bowler and he does well to hang on to the catch with one hand! 

20:09 (IST)

SIX! Dhawan dances down the track to Mahmudullah and smacks the ball back over his head. However he has to depart after being sent back by Pant when looking for a second. The opener is run-out and India are in a bit of trouble. 

20:04 (IST)

Valid point but now would be the time to go for broke. India have both Krunal and Dube waiting in the dugout too. 

20:00 (IST)

Dhawan gets a half-tracker from Mosaddek and dutifully dispatches it behind square and in between the two fielders. 8 runs come off the over but India will need more boundaries, and soon. 

19:57 (IST)

Afif Hossain is handed the ball for the first time in the match and he does well in his first over, giving away just the two runs. Dhawan and new man Rishabh Pant need to up the ante sooner rather than later. There's only 8 overs left. 

19:49 (IST)

OUT! Shreyas goes for the big shot once again but this time he manages to find the fielder at long-off. Aminul gets his man at last and India are in a bit of trouble at 70-3 with only 9.4 overs to play.

India vs Bangladesh, 1st T20I Match at New Delhi: As It Happened

LATEST UPDATE: And that's that! Bangladesh have beaten India for the first time ever in T20Is, and it's a fairly comfortable win by seven wickets as they finish with a six by Mahmudullah off the bowling of Shivam Dubey. Bangladesh have finished on 154/3, and go 1-0 up in the T20I series.

Catch all the live updates from the first T20I between India and Bangladesh at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi through our live blog.

PREVIEW: India take on Bangladesh in the first of three T20Is in New Delhi on Sunday, where the focus will be as much on the air pollution plaguing the capital city as it will be on India’s relatively new-look side.

Many have questioned the logic behind hosting the match in Delhi at a time when the city is battling the post-Diwali air pollution but the BCCI ruled out shifting the tie due to logistics issues.

The pollution and its resultant health concerns add to Bangladesh’s problems as they are already having to deal with the ban imposed on all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan by the ICC for not reporting fixing approaches.

The teams are ready to battle it out and with no established name figuring in India's bowling department, it will be an opportunity for all-rounder Shivam Dube, Shardul Thakur and Deepak Chahar to show what they bring to the table.

India will play many matches before next year's World T20 in Australia but team management has said they would like to identify the core of the team without much tinkering.

Thus it is time for these youngsters, as well as the likes of spinning all-rounder Washington Sundar, to make a case for themselves.

Stand-in captain Rohit Sharma is in fine form and he would look to carry his Test form into the shortest format.

But his opening partner Shikhar Dhawan is yet to find that big knock after making a comeback to white-ball cricket from a thumb injury that had cut short his World Cup in England.

The Delhi left-hander had scores of 36 and 40 during the South Africa series and struggled to find runs during the recently-concluded Vijay Hazare Trophy, where he managed just one half-century in seven matches.

KL Rahul, Shreyas Iyer, Krunal Pandya and Rishabh Pant look certainties in the middle order. If Shivam Dube is handed his much-awaited India debut, he will have to be placed up in the batting order, considering his big-hitting ability.

Manish Pandey and Sanju Samson will also vie for spots in the middle order whereas Yuzvendra Chahal, Khaleel Ahmed, Deepak Chahar and Washington Sundar are India’s other bowling options.

Like Dhawan, it's also an opportunity for leg-spinner Chahal to earn back his place in the Indian side.

A lack of opportunities this year has put brakes on his career which at one time soared in company of Kuldeep Yadav.

For India, it's also a chance to work out a strategy to do well when batting first. Team management has identified this as an issue since due to the presence of a middle order that is far from settled.

Bangladesh have emerged as a potent Asian cricketing force but they have not been in the best of form of late.

Afghanistan beat them for a historic Test win in Chittagong in September, though Bangladesh did a decent job in the following T20 tri-series, winning three of the four matches they played but not before losing a T20 to the Asian minnows.

Bangladesh will still likely present a good challenge, especially with their strong batting line up which is led by skipper Mahmudullah.

But they will definitely miss Shakib, whose usefulness with both bat and ball has often won matches for Bangladesh.

In his absence, the onus will be on Liton Das, Mushfiqur Rahim and Soumya Sarker to deliver the goods with the bat.

Squads:

India: Rohit Sharma (c), Khaleel Ahmed, Yuzvendra Chahal, Deepak Chahar, Rahul Chahar, Shikhar Dhawan, Shivam Dube, Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey, Krunal Pandya, Rishabh Pant, K L Rahul, Sanju Samson, Washington Sundar, Shardul Thakur.

Bangladesh: Mahmudullah Riyad (C), Taijul Islam, Mohammad Mithun, Liton Kumer Das, Soumya Sarker, Naim Sheikh, Mushfiqur Rahhim, Afif Hossain, Mosaddek Hossain Saikat, Aminul Islam Biplob, Arafat Sunny, Abu Hider, Al-Amin Hossain, Mustafizur Rahman, Shafiul Islam.
