BAN vs IND: On Sunday in Dhaka, India and Bangladesh played out a low-scoring thriller (December 4). Over the past few years, both sides have been involved in thrilling last-ball matches in limited overs forms. The players from both sides have engaged in heated exchanges in the process. Virat Kohli and Mushfiqur Rahim attempted to get under each other’s skin during the first ODI in Dhaka, which was not a particularly heated exchange.
The two sporting superstars squared off in the 29th over of Bangladesh’s innings, when the game was fairly matched. But everything went according to plan, and even the onlookers relished the occasion. Rahim defended a length ball to cover off the sixth delivery of Shardul Thakur’s 29th over.
There was no run, and Virat Kohli was eager to seize the opportunity. However, after aiming a throw towards the stumps, the former India skipper was unable to remove the ball. Rahim moved away from the stumps at the same time and motioned for Kohli to hit the target. He was seen giving it back to the seasoned Bangladeshi, which in no way pleased Kohli.

Rahim and Kohli had a bad day at the plate.
In the opening ODI in Dhaka, it was not the day for batsmen, and Virat Kohli and Mushfiqur Rahim were no exception. Rahim gave in to strain in a close run-chase while the former India captain was the victim of spectacular fielding by Litton Das.
Before being struck out by Shakib Al Hasan, Kohli managed just nine runs off 15 balls. Das made a superb catch at the covers. Rahim was bowled out for 18 runs off 45 pitches in the 36th over without striking a single boundary. Bangladesh’s chances of winning the match may have appeared to be over after his wicket, but Mehidy Hasan ultimately had other plans.
