Adds that they didn't bowl well today and will improve next time. (On batting order) Says they shuffled and kept the big hitters towards the end.

In the first innings, Rohit and Pandya did all the damage and helped their team post a good total. Bangladesh will be bewailed with themselves as they dropped catches and were pretty mediocre when it came to chase. However, the tournament has just started and they still have time to rectify the mistakes they committed today. Stay with us as the presentation is coming up.

The Indians have kept the momentum with them and have proved yet again they are the team to defeat in this format. The match which looked in the balance at the start ended up in a one-sided contest eventually. Bangladesh never really got going as they lost early wickets just like the Indians did. Sabbir Rahman alone showed guts to fight but wasn't provided with any company. Nehra was unplayable in the start and ended up being the best with the ball, picking up three wickets and giving just 23 runs. Pandya, Ashwin, Bumrah all got one apiece and in the end the Indians won the opening game comprehensively.
