Team India captain Rohit Sharma has made an unwanted record in his name in the match against Bangladesh in the Asia Cup Super Four. He was out for zero in this match. This was Rohit’s 15th wicket in his ODI career of 249 matches.

When it comes to Indian players, the great batsman Sachin Tendulkar has been out on zero 20 times. He is on the top in the list of Indians. Javagal Srinath (19) is at second place. The names of Anil Kumble and Yuvraj Singh (18) come at third place. Harbhajan Singh (17) is at number four.
The name of Sourav Ganguly (16) comes at number five in the list of Indian batsmen who were out on zero. Zaheer Khan, Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli have been out on zero 15 times each in ODIs.
Talking about India vs Bangladesh Asia Cup 2023 Super 4 match, Shubman Gill’s brilliant inning of 121 runs and Axar Patel’s 42-run inning went in vain as Bangladesh defeated India by 6 runs. However, this defeat had no impact on India’s position in the tournament.
Chasing the target of 266 runs, India collapsed for 259 runs in 49.5 overs. For Bangladesh, Mustafizur Rahman took three wickets, while Mahedi Hasan and Tanzeem Hasan Shakib took two wickets each. This was the first international match of right-arm fast bowler Tanzeem and he impressed a lot with his bowling.
Earlier, with the help of half-centuries from Shakib Al Hasan (80) and Tovid Hridoy (54), Bangladesh scored 265 runs for 8 wickets in 50 overs. Indian captain Rohit won the toss and decided to bowl first, after which Gill’s sensational century while chasing the target put India ahead.
But a big upset was seen with the wicket of Gill. Akshar fought well till the end but he could not lead India to victory. The credit for this goes to Bangladesh who kept their composure well in the tense end.
