Nidahas Trophy: India Aims to Recover Against Unpredictable Bangladesh

Nidahas Trophy: India Aims to Recover Against Unpredictable Bangladesh

KUSAL Perera's brilliant 66 off 37 balls and some crucial contributions from the middle-order helped Sri Lanka beat India by five wickets in the opening match of the Nidahas Trophy Twenty20 worldwide (T20I) cricket tri-series here on Tuesday.After the Indian batsmen put up a decent target of 175, their bowlers failed to make a mark as the hosts hammered the bowlers all around the park. The last time when these two teams met, it was the final over of the 2016 World T20, and Bangladesh lost kit by one run due to his overconfidence.

Dhawan scored 55 while Raina pitched in with his 28-run knock. The way Kusal batted in the Power Play, those 27 runs (in Shardul Thakur's first over, the third of the chase) made the difference.

Reacting to his decision on fielding first, Indian captain Rohit Sharma said, "We are going to field first".

Texas Democrats are competing again and that's good for democracy
Bush has been backed by Trump, but a loss would mean that no one from his family's political dynasty would be in elected office. Democrats fielded 111 congressional candidates Tuesday, including at least one for each of the 36 House districts in the state.

Taskin Ahmed then got the better of Dhawan in the 17th over but it was too little too late by then as India needed just 17 more in 3.2 overs.

However, in his next over, Shankar got his first worldwide wicket when Rahim edged one to Dinesh Karthik behind the stumps.

Untroubled by the fall of wickets, Das continued to play his shots but lack of support from the other end started bothering the batsmen. However, that doesn't guarantee them a win at the outset and skipper Mahmudullah and his boys will do well to remind themselves of that.

Number of opioid overdoses skyrocket across the nation
This includes naloxone for first responders, and mental health programs and medication for patients with opioid use disorder. The next most afflicted region is the West (40%), followed by the Northeast (21%), Southwest (20%) and Southeast (14%).

Now with half of the side back in the dug-out, it all depended on Das, who was playing beautifully by rotating the strike with new batsmen Sabbir Rahman (30). In the 19th over, Rahman was sent back by Unadkat. If you see the first six overs between us and them, that was where they took the game away from us. Like every match, this contest begins with the toss, which is won by India and they have opted to field first.

Indian cricketers celebrate after taking a wicket against Bangladesh. Dhawan reached his sixth T20I fifty in just 35 balls.

Washington, in fact, was the pick of the bowlers against Sri Lanka, striking twice at a decent economy rate of seven runs per over. India lost young Rishabh Pant soon as the left-hander chopped a Rubel Hossain delivery on to his wickets in the sixth over.

Busy day for new Meghalaya CM Conrad
The parties in the MDA fought the elections on their own ideologies and beliefs, as Conrad Sangma told this newspaper. Meghalaya threw up a fractured mandate on Saturday with the Congress emerging the largest party winning 21 seats.
