In an Asia Cup Super 4 match that had no bearing on the final, India experienced a heart-wrenching loss to Bangladesh, despite Shubman Gill’s exceptional 121 and Axar Patel’s resilient 42. Prior to this encounter, both India and Sri Lanka had already secured their spots in Sunday’s final.

Bangladesh’s captain, Shakib Al Hasan, and Towid Hridoy played contrasting half-centuries, collaborating to set a competitive total of 265 for eight after being put in to bat. In response, India was dismissed for 259 in 49.5 overs.

Shakib contributed 80 runs from 85 deliveries, while Towid added 54 runs from 81 balls to stabilize the Bangladesh innings after an early loss of wickets.

India’s fast bowlers, including Mohammed Shami (2/32), Shardul Thakur (3/65), and Prasidh Krishna (1/43), collectively accounted for six crucial wickets.
