India lost to Bangladesh for the first time. Bangladesh set a target of 229 runs to win in front of India. Their bowlers kept constant pressure on the Indian team and took wickets at regular intervals. Interestingly, India decided to give rest to Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid in this match. This experiment, however, did not prove to be rewarding and India lost by 16 runs. Mashrafe Mortaza was adjudged the man of the match. He played unbeaten innings of 31 off 39 balls and also took two wickets for 36 runs.

2007 Port of Spain

What could have been a more worse start to the ICC World Cup for India then this one? India's decision to bat on a patchy wicket proved to be wrong, and the team was reduced to just 191 runs. From Bangladesh, Mushfiqur Rahim, Tamim Iqbal and Shakib Al Hasan scored a half-century. As a result, Bangladesh won the match easily. After all, it was the biggest disappointment of that era, yes we have come a long way; but even today images of Indian dressing room, after the loss send shrills across us all. For some it was the sight of Rahul Dravid with lowered head and disdain posture, a sight which edged with all the good memories. But it is our bad memories which remains as close to us as our good ones, a small trigger and all of it comes back.

India beating Bangladesh by 109 runs to advance to the semi-finals of the ICC Cricket World Cup was one of the most soothing sights of Indian cricket history, especially, after the 2007 world cup loss. The match was filled with controversy- with no ball not being called. However, amidst all of the controversy Rohit Sharma scored a magnificent century and India had posted a score of 302. After which, it was almost impossible for the Bangladesh team to chase down such a huge score and absence of good partnership made it all the more difficult.

But in the last over, the game changed dramatically and turned to more exciting. Bangladesh had to score 11 runs to win the last over. In such a situation, Mushfiqur Rahim and Mahmudullah scored 9 runs off the first three balls. Bangladesh was on the verge of victory, but there was chaos among their batsmen and the match went in favour of men in blue.

2018, Colombo (T20I)

Captain Virat Kohli was rested for this Nidahas trophy. Despite this, Rohit Sharma's less experienced team was considered a favorite in this T20 trophy. The thrill was at the peak of T20 International. Bangladesh scored 168 runs. For India, Yuzvendra Chahal and Washington Sundar showed impressive play. India continued their winning campaign against Bangladesh in the T20 International.
