Currently, Team India is locking horns with Bangladesh in the second T20I of the three-match series at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot. After winning the toss, skipper Rohit Sharma decided to bowl first. However, Bangladesh batsmen started off strong and created an atmosphere of concern for India. Both the teams made no changes in their respective squads.
Bangladesh scored 54 runs without losing a single wicket in the first power play. India had success in the sixth over, but a mistake by wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant was costly. In the sixth over, Rohit handed the ball over to spinner Yuzvendra Chahal. Rishabh stumped on the third ball of the over, sending Liton Das back.
However, the third umpire caught Rishabh’s mistake and the Bangladesh batsman got his life. Pant caught the ball in front of the stump, and the third umpire was dismissed by Litton Das for no-ball. Chahal had tossed the ball up and Das had skipped down the track to go aerial but failed to make a contact and Pant whipped the bails off. In the seventh over, Rohit also dropped the catch of the same batsman off the bowling of Washington Sundar.

When he came on the field, Rohit set a record as he has now become the first Indian men’s cricketer to play 100 T20Is. But Rohit ranks second in the world. Shoaib Malik of Pakistan leads the list with 111 matches. Malik (111), Rohit Sharma (100), Shahid Afridi (99), MS Dhoni (98) and Ross Taylor (93) are among the top five players who have played the most Twenty20 matches. Rohit also broke Suresh Raina’s record.
