India vs Bangladesh, World Cup 2019 Warm-up Match Highlights: India won their second World Cup warm-up match at the Sophia Gardens in Cardiff on Tuesday, beating Bangladesh by 95 runs. Bangladesh won the toss and elected to bowl. India did not get off the best possible start, being 102/4 at one stage. However, a fine 164-run stand between KL Rahul and MS Dhoni put India in a good position. Ravindra Jadeja and MS Dhoni (113 off 78 balls) struck some lusty blows at the end to take the India total to 359/7 at the end of 50 overs.
The Bangladesh innings was a tale of one promising 120-run partnership between Liton Das (73 off 90 balls) and Mushfiqur Rahim (90 off 94 balls) and double strikes by three bowlers. All three of Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav found themselves on hat-tricks in different parts of the innings. None of the other Bangladesh batsman could stick around for long, however, after the wickets of Liton and Mushfiqur, as their innings was wrapped up for 264 in 49.3 overs.

India win by 95 runs
That's it! All over! India win their second warm-up match against Bangladesh by 95 runs. After 100s by KL Rahul and MS Dhoni, Kuldeep and Chahal took three wickets each to lead India to victory. BAN - 264 all out after 49.3 ovs
Ninth wicket falls
WICKET! Bangladesh lose their 9th wicket. Shaifuddin caught Kuldeep bowled Chahal for 18. India's spinners have woven a web around the Bangladesh middle and lower order. Jadeja bowling the last over of the day. BAN- 262/9 after 49 ovs.
What a day for keepers!
MS Dhoni(113), Tom Blundell (106), Shai Hope (101), all scored centuries in World Cup warm-up matches today. Mushfiqur Rahim finished with 90. KL Rahul, of course, the star of the day for India, is also an occasional keeper.
Five overs left
Youngsters Mehidy Hasan and Shaifuddin putting up a mini-resistance. Nice to see Chahal and Mehidy Hasan sharing a laugh as well. No pressure on the players, they're all just soaking up the World Cup atmosphere. BAN - 230/8 after 45 ovs
Bangladesh lose their eighth wicket
WICKET! Sabbir Rahman is dismissed for 7 by Jadeja. India spinners seem to be in a hurry to finish this off. Mushfiqur's wicket has brought about a collapse. BAN- 216/8 after 40.3 ovs
Another wicket for Kuldeep
STUMPED! Two in two for Kuldeep! Mosaddek Hossain is stumped by Karthik. Karthik replaced Dhoni behind the stumps two overs ago, he has a stumping victim to his name from today as well now. BAN- 216/7 after 39.3 ovs
Mushfiqur is out
BOWLED! Kuldeep the man again! Gets Mushfiqur Rahim's middle stump. Rahim gone for 90. Rahim went for the slog sweep again, a shot that has brought him so much joy today. It was the wrong one from Kuldeep though, it went through Mushfiqur's gate and smacked against his middle stump. BAN - 216/6 after 39.2 ovs
Mushfiqur on the charge
200 up for Bangladesh. The required run rate has now climbed above 13 though. Mushfiqur giving Jadeja the charge. He's not just finding the rope with his heaved strokes, he is also finding the gaps in the field for the ones and twos. Moves on to 90 off 93 balls. Ban - 215/5 after 39 ovs
Mahmudullah is bowled
BOWLED! Kuldeep Yadav gets his name in the wickets column as well. Gets Mahmudullah for 9. Mushfiqur running out of partners, India turning the screws. Sabbir Rahman has now joined the captain. BAN- 191/5 after 36 ovs

Kedar Jadhav on the field
That's a welcome sight for Indian fans! Kedar Jadhav, who is battling to get to full fitness before the World Cup starts, is on the field as a substitute fielder.
Double strike for Chahal
LBW! Two wickets in two balls for Chahal! On a hat-trick now! Mohammad Mithun goes for a duck. Mahmudullah comes in at No. 6. Averts the hat-trick chance. India have wrested back the initiative in this over though. BAN- 169/4 after 32 ovs
Liton Das is out
STUMPED! Liton Das is out for a 90-ball 73. Chahal gets the wicket, Dhoni with the lightning hands. Did that break in play have any part to play in the dismissal? Did Liton Das lose his concentration when he got hit in the last over? Mushfiqur is joined by Mohammad Mithun. BAN- 169/3 after 31.3 ovs
Liton Das needs attention
We have a break in play as Liton Das miscues a Ravindra Jadeja delivery almost onto his throat. Physios out to take a look at possible damage, but we are okay to continue. Jadeja has been the most economical India bowler so far. Conceded only one run in his third over. His bowling figures now 3-0-10-0. BAN - 164/2 after 31 ovs
Fifty for Mushfiqur
Mushfiqur Rahim brings up his fifty as well. The partnership between him and Liton Das now 108. In the commentary box, Sourav Ganguly remarks how the batsmen have decided to get a move on. With the sun beating down on the pitch hard, the ball might just be coming on to the bat a little better than before as well. BAN- 159/2 after 29 ovs
Fifty for Liton Das
Liton Das brings up his fifty. Gets there in 65 balls. Mushfiqur Rahim still with him. Yuzvendra Chahal is into the attack now. Bangladesh are looking to up the ante now. Both Shankar and Chahal operating at economy rates in excess of 7. BAN- 125/2 after 24 ovs
100 comes up for Bangladesh. Mushfiqur Rahim and Liton Das keeping them in the hunt. Vijay Shankar bowling his second over. With KL Rahul having almost sealed the No. 4 role, could Vijay Shankar threaten Hardik Pandya's place in the side? BAN- 102/2 after 20 ovs
After Bumrah's twin strike, Mushfiqur Rahim and Liton Das consolidate the Bangladesh innings. Rahim now on 25, Liton Das now on 35. Vijay Shankar introduced into the attack for India. BAN- 85/2 after 18 ovs
Kohli introduces spin in the form of chinaman Kuldeep Yadav. Yadav has bowled a brief spell of two overs but without any success. Bhuvneshwar Kumar is operating from the end. When will Chahal come into play? BAN- 74/2 after 14.4 ovs
Bumrah on fire
Bumrah takes two in two! Soumya Sarkar goes for 25 caught behind, before Shakib Al Hasan is bowled first ball! Bangladesh 49/2 at the end of the powerplay. However, Rahim negotiates hattrick delivery safely.

FOUR runs, pitched up a little, possibly for the first time today by Bumrah, and Liton has chipped that back down the ground, just past the bowler for a four. This pitch seems perfect for batting and Bangladesh seem they are in the mood for the big chase. BAN- 47/0 after 8 ovs
Chasing 360, Bangladesh are off to a steady start with Soumya Sarkar and Liton Das. Soumya is the aggressor of the two hitting three fours in his brief knock. He is unbeaten on 22. BAN- 31/0 after 4 ovs
Liton Das and Soumya Sarkar are at the crease. Liton Das is on strike. Shami will open the attack. Bangladesh need 360 to win. Soumya finishes the first with a four and a six. Bumrah is bowling the second.
Centuries from MS Dhoni and KL Rahul boost India to an imposing 359/7 in their final warm-up match in Cardiff. That was pretty much the perfect warm-up innings for India. How will Bangladesh respond?
Hundred for Dhoni
Century for MS Dhoni, reaches the milestone with a 6 down the ground. This is the best that Dhoni has batted in an ODI for a long time. From the very start of his innings, he batted with excellent intent, particularly against spin - which has caused him such problems in this last four years. A massive plus for India
Hardik Pandya goes for the big hit but Sabbir Rahman takes a good catch at long-on. Shakib picks up the wicket and Pandya departs for 21 of just 11 balls. IND- 325/6
300 up for India
A cracking six by Dhoni moves him into the 90's and 300 comes up for India. IND- 302/5 after 46.2 ovs
A 23-ball half-century from Andre Russell. West Indies are well on track for a score in excess of 400 in Bristol.
Rahul goes for the big slog but ends up losing his leg stump. Hardik Pandya joins MS Dhoni at the crease with India 266/5. KL Rahul departs for a well-made 108 in just 99 balls. Sabbir Rahman picks up the wicket. IND- 266/5 after 45.2 ovs
India's No. 4?
It has taken a long time & many chops and changes to the team, but at the last possible moment India have found their number four: KL Rahul. Now they must stick with him - it's the most difficult batting position in ODI cricket. He needs patience through the tournament
100 for KL Rahul
100 for KL Rahul. A single takes Rahul to three figures. What a remarkable innings this has been. A stylish and well composed century from the right-hander. Does this end the debate of Team India 's No. 4? IND- 255/4 after 42 ovs
10 overs to go
IND- 243/4 after 40 overs. If Rahul clicks in this world cup, India's middle order will be as good as their top 3. This will make India the most formidable batting group. How many more runs will the Men in Blue add to their total?
FIFTY FOR DHONI
Dhoni brings up a gritty half-century off 40 deliveries. 100-run partnership for the fifth wicket and India seem in command. Rahul & Dhoni playing their shots. IND- 218/4 in 36.1 overs
KL Rahul in form
In terms of pure talent there was never any doubt about who India's number four should be: KL Rahul is clearly the best of the lot; this innings is yet again underlining that. For him the challenge is about converting that ability into consistent performances.
Meanwhile Shai Hope slams solid ton in West Indies vs New Zealand match
Shai Hope slammed a solid century before being bowled out by Trent Boult to take West Indies to 267/5 in 36 overs.
FIFTY up for KL Rahul
On the final delivery of the 26th over, KL Rahul hit Abu Jayed towards long on to take two runs and complete his half-century. Rahul took 48 balls to cross the fifty mark.
Vijay Shankar edges one to Mushfiqur Rahim. Rubel Hossain gets his second wicket of the day. MS Dhoni comes to the crease. KL Rahul is still going strong. IND 102/2 in 22 overs
We're 25 overs in at the match between West Indies vs New Zealand – West Indies are having a smashing time with the bat! Shai Hope and Shimron Hetmyer are at the crease with West Indies 202/3. Hope is unbeaten on 74 off 59 with six fours and three sixes
Kohli is Yorked
Bowled! Saifuddin's yorker crashes on to Kohli's leg-stump. The Indian captain is gone for 47and he misses out on a 50. It was pitched on middle and leg and Kohli went for the flick but missed it completely. The sound of timber. IND- 83/3 after 18.4 overs
Time for drinks
Yet once again India is cautious in first powerplay and setting up for strong foundation to score in middle and death overs. However, most importantly it now gives ample time to figure out the No 4 slot with Rahul and Vijay. IND- 75/2 after 17 ovs.
Rubel Hossain comes into the attack and gets the wicket of Rohit Sharma, the India opener dragging onto his middle stump. KL Rahul joins Virat Kohli at the crease with India 50/2 after 13.3 overs.
