India near 250, pressure back on Bangladesh

Shikhar Dhawan was dismissed at 60 by Sunzamul Islam after steadying by forming a formidable partnership with Dinesh Karthik.

A partnership between Dinesh Karthik and Shikhar Dhawan steadies India from early blows.

Rahane’s front-foot went nowhere as he drove, gets a thick inside edge and hears the clatter of his stumps. First wicket for Mustafizur, who dismissed Rahane for 11.

Rubel’s first ball took the wicket of Rohit Sharma, who was dismissed for 1.

After missing the first Champions Trophy warm-up game against New Zealand, Rohit Sharma will be aiming to get some batting practice in the second and final tie when India take on Bangladesh before their tournament opener against Pakistan on June 4.

Rohit, who led the Mumbai Indians to victory in the Indian Premier League, had batted mid-order in the T20 tournament.

So, against Bangladesh, Rohit will be back in his familiar opening position, hoping to get some practice before the start of the tournament. He had missed the first tie due to some personal commitments and arrived late in London.

After a convincing 45-run victory against New Zealand in a rain-curtailed opening warm-up match, Virat Kohli will pray that his batsmen get some more game time than the 26 overs they got the other day.
