Watch: KL Rahul’s shocking drop of Mehidy that cost India 1st ODI, Rohit furious | Cricket

Bangladesh recorded a fantastic one-wicket win in Mirpur against the mighty Team India, whose line-up included captain Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and KL Rahul. An unbeaten 51-run stand for the 10th wicket frustrated India in Sunday’s ODI series opener, but India had its share of mistakes in the match, chief among them the fouls, which occurred during that winning stand, leaving Rohit furious .

It happened in the 43rd over of Bangladesh’s pursuit when Bangladesh batsman Mehidy Hasan Miraz survived a dismissal breakaway for the second consecutive time in the over after he sliced ​​Shardul Thakur’s wider ball into the night sky. The ball fell into the third man region where Sundar was stationed, but the Indian bowler made no attempt to sprint or dive in. He just sauntered over to the ball after it hit the floor. The lazy field attempt absolutely enraged Rohit.

What further led to Rohit losing his cool was that Mehidy had hit a similar shot to a wider from Thakur in the previous ball. Wicket-keeper KL Rahul had bothered to run to the area to complete the catch, but dropped it instead.
