# Toss time in Banglalore with MS Dhoni and Mashrafe Mortaza in the middle
# Here we are in Bangalore for a crucial game between India and Bangladesh
# We are just three hours away from the big match between India and Bangladesh

The victory against Pakistan has been wildly celebrated. To be fair though, it was only the first step towards resurrecting India’s World T20 campaign that had threatened to go awry following the 79 all out in the tournament opener against New Zealand.
Bangladesh fast bowler Taskin Ahmed’s suspension from bowing in international cricket was on Wednesday upheld by a judicial commissioner following a review hearing.
