IND VS BAN Delhi T20I Live Score: Bangladesh embark on its mission to take down formidable India as the clash on Sunday in their first T20 International at Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi even as the pollution level in the city remained hazardous. The national capital is reeling under prevailing smoggy conditions with health-emergency put in place but Bangladesh captain Mahmudullah made it clear that his team is not focusing on pollution but the game. However, an ever-bigger challenge for them will be facing formidable India without their biggest matchwinner Shakib Al Hasan, who has been banned from international cricket for 2 years by the ICC. India, on the other hand, will be led by Rohit Sharma in the absence of Virat Kohli. The men-in-blue have been in a pleasing form but would like to tread warily as taking Bangladesh for granted won’t be wise. Stay with us as we bring you ball by ball live coverage of the match.

#10:12 pm: Dropped! Krunal Pandya must know its criminal to drop such a catch at this moment. Moreover, its a four! Has he dropped the match as well?
#10:10 pm: Chahal comes back into the attack. Skipper Mahmudullah is the new man in.
#10:09: OUT! Bowled!! Khaleel provides India with a much much needed breakthrough. It was an off cutter from Kahleel and set Sarkar failed to cut it. Score after 17 overs: BAN 114-3; Soumya Sarkar39, (35)Rahim37(35)

He conceded 12 runs. Score after 14 overs: BAN 94-2; Rahim 25(24), Soumya Sarkar 34(28)
#09:47 pm: Krunal Pandya is back into the attack. Can he provide India with a breakthrough? Off course he can, but will he do that now is the big question. India needs it badly.
#09:46 pm: Single to end the over. Good over from Sundar, just four off it. Score after 13 overs: BAN 82-2; Soumya Sarkar 24(24), Rahim 23(22)
#09:43 pm: Washington Sundar is back into the attack. India needs wickets not just one but two. Sarkar and Rahim has built nicely after the fall of Naim's wicket. They know the target is not big. All they need to do is keep the nerve and play risk free cricket.

#09:35 pm: To salt to the injury, India didn't take review for two LBW appeals from Chahal. And gues what, both were out. And they wasted it on Pant's appeal.
#09:33 pm: Loud appeal for caught behind from Rishabh Pant. He convinces Rohit to take the review. And there is not edge. India lost the review and Rohit Sharma's reation is epic. Score after 10 overs: BAN 62-2; Soumya Sarkar 20(18) Rahim 7(10)
#09:31 pm: Loud appeal for a LBW but turned down. India won't take the review. Had they taken it, replay shows, Rahim would have a goner. Also missed a run out chance.
#09:29 pm: Seven off Krunal Pandya's first over. Score after 9 overs: BAN 61-2; Rahim6(5), Soumya Sarkar20(17)

#09:25 pm: Krunal Pandya, left-arm orthodox, comes into the attack as India continues with spin.
#09:24 pm: OUT! Naim is caught by Dhawan. Chahal strikes in his first over of the innings. Naim went for the slog sweep but the ball took the edge and went up high in the air towards long-on where Dhawan takes a good catch. A much needed breakthrough.

# 08:56 pm: OUT! Bangladesh loses its first wicket as Liton Das is caught by Rahul at cover-point.
#08:37 pm: SIX! 16 runs off the last over. 30 runs in the last two. Krunal Pandya pulled it over square leg for another six. India post 148 at board. Dew is likely to play a crucial role here but its still a fighting total. Bangladesh would be satisfied with bowling efforts. Will be back in a while, stay with us.
#08:34 pm: SIX! Washington Sunder is playing a crucial cameo here. It was a slower delivery outside off and Sundar stood tall and sent it sailing over long-off for maximum.
#08:32 pm: Al-Amin will bowl the final over. Can India reach 150. Looks tough but not impossible.
#08:31 pm: SIX! Much needed runs for India. A cracking shot from Washington Sundar over wide long-on. 14 runs off the over. Score after 19 overs: IND 132-6; Washington Sundar7(2), Krunal Pandya8(5)
#08:28 pm: OUT! Rishabh Pant wanted to go big but could not clear the boundry and the ball goes straight into the hands of Naim at long-on. He scored 27 runs off 26 balls. Washington Sundar replaces him.
#08:25 pm: Just eight off the over. India needs more. The pitch is paying a little slow and if India can take it to 140, it won't be easy for Bangladesh in the absence of Tamim Iqbal and Shakib, their two key players. Shafiul Islam comes back into the attack. Score after 18 overs: IND 118-5; Pant 25(24) Krunal Pandya 3(3)
#08:23 pm: FOUR! It was a slow bouncer from Al-Amin and Pant waited for it. He looked to go for pull but then just helped it over the keeper's head for four.
#08:21 pm: Al-Amin Hossain is back into the attack. Bangladesh would be a happier side at the moment as the have kept Indian batsmen in check.
#08:20 pm: Eight runs off the over. Bangladesh won't mind. With just three more over left, India now need to accelerate from here. Score after 17 overs: IND 110-5; Krunal Pandya1(1), Pant20(20)
#08:17 pm: FOUR! Wonderful shot from Pant. Opened the face of the bat and used the pace to steer it behind square for four.
#08:16 pm: Mustafizur Rahman is back into the attack. Krunal Pandya is the new man in.
#08:15 pm: OUT! Shivam Dube, the debutant has to go back to the hut as the bowl took a leading edge in an attempted flick by him. Afif took a good jumping catch at his follow through. Score after 16 overs: IND 102-5; Shivam Dube1(4), Pant13(15)
#08:13 pm: FOUR! First boundry from Pant. He sliced it towards deep backward point for four.
#08:08 pm: OUT! Dhawan is run out and its a big blow to India. But it was Rishabh Pant who ran poorly and Dhawn had to pay the price. Debutant Shivam Dube is the new man in. Score after 15 overs: IND 95-4; Shivam Dube 0(1) Pant7(12)
#08:06 pm: SIX! Massive hit from Dhawan as he dances down the track and send it over the long-on. It went high and over the boundry ropes.

#08:00 pm: FOUR! A beautiful shot from Dhawan as rocks back and pulls this half tracker behind square on the on-side. Eight off the over. Score after 13 overs: IND 83-3; Dhawan33(37), Pant4(6)
#07:58 pm: Mosaddek Hossain comes into attack as Bangladesh continue with more off spin.
#07:57 pm: A very good over from Afif as he conceded just two off it. Bangladesh has succesfully kept India at the bay by taking wickets on regular interval and they would not mind anything below 150. Score after 12 overs: IND 75-3; Dhawan27(34) Pant2(3)
#07:55 pm: Afif Hossain, right-arm off break, comes into the attack. Dhawan has been a tad slow today. India has depth in their batting so he can takes his chances now and presses the accelerator.
#07:54 pm: Rishabh Pant is the new man in. With nine more overs left, he has a very good chance to prove himself and shut the mounths of critics. Can he do that? Off course he can, but will he be able to do that today is the big question. Score after 11 overs: IND 73-3; Pant1(2), Dhawan26(29)
#07:49 pm: OUT! Aminul Islam takes his second wicket of the innings. Iyer fall into the trap and went for it after Aminul gave it a plenty of air. Iyer lost the grip of the bat and played it over long-off with one hand. Could not clear the ropes and debutant Naim took a good catch near the boundry line.
#07:45 pm FOUR! A gift from Soumya Sarkar and Iyer collects it with both hands. A full toss and Iyer flicked it through the gap at mid wicket. Score after 10 overs: IND 69-2; Shreyas Iyer 22(12) Dhawan 23(26)
#07:42 pm: SIX! It was a good over from Aminul until Iyer decided to go after him on the last ball. IT was bowled up an Iyer stood tall and sent it back over bowler's head. Score after 9 overs: IND 60-2; Shreyas Iyer15(8), Dhawan21(24)
#07:38 pm: FOUR! Easy-peasy for Dhawan. It was on the pads and Dhawan finely glanced it past short fine leg for four. Score After 8 overs: IND 51-2; Shreyas Iyer 8(5), Dhawan19(21)
#07:36 pm: Spin from both ends. Soumya Sarkar, right-arm medium, comes into the attack.
#07:35 pm: SIX! Looks like Iyer has come prepared from the dressing room itself. It was a tossed up delivery from Aminul and Iyer played it over deep extra cover for a six. Score after 7 overs: IND 44-2; Shreyas Iyer7(2), Dhawan13(18)
#07:32 pm: OUT! KL Rahul once again fails to convert a good start, though a soft dismissal. Aminul strikes in his very first over of the innings. Shreyas Iyer comes to bat.
#07:31 pm: Spin introduced in the 7th over as Aminul Islam, right-arm leg break, comes into the attack.
#07:30 pm: Dhawan and Rahul are the key if India want to go big. These two have the firepower and it's time they sould accelerate a bit. Score after 6 overs: IND 35-1; Dhawan11(15), Rahul15(16)
#07:28 PM: FOUR! A back of length delivery by Shafiul Islam who changed the end. It kept low but Rahul was too classy to play a pick shot that flied over square leg for four.

#07:06 pm: Lokesh Rahul, right handed bat, is the new man in. Al-Amin Hossain, right-arm fast medium, comes into the attack.
#07:05 pm: OUT! Rohit Sharma is given LBW. He has taken review but there is no edge. Only height can save Rohit now. He has to go. The ball is hitting the top of middle. However, the review will be retained as it's umpire's call. Score after 1 over: IND 10-1, Rohit9(5); Dhawan1(1)
#07:04 pm: Boundary! Second four of the over from Rohit Sharma and one ball is still to go.
