India ‘A’ defeated Bangladesh ‘A’ by 1 innings and 32 runs 

Shikhar Dhawan lead Indian ‘A’ team notched up an easy victory over Bangladesh ‘A’ at M Chinnaswamy Stadium, in Bangalore.

Bangladesh team, who are yet to find their Test form lost the match by 32 runs and one innings. The good news is that Shikhar Dhawan, who was ruled out after the first Test in Sri Lanka owing to fracture in hand, scored 150. Bowler, Varun Aaron has kept his name in contention for Test series against South Africa as he took 4 wickets in the first innings. Offie Jayant Yadav also spins out Bangladesh by taking total seven wickets in the match.

Bangladesh scored 228 in the first innings, in which Sabbir Rahman contributed 122. But, Shikhar Dhawan 150, Karun Nair 71 and Vijay Shankar’s 86 put India on the verge of a big total 411 and a lead of 183 runs.

Inexperienced and bemused Bangladesh team bundled out for only 151. India marched to a 32 runs and one innings victory over Bangladesh. Ishwar Pandey  took three wickets while, Jayant Yadav took three wickets to finish his innings figure with seven wickets.

Earlier, Bangladesh ‘A’ were defeated by Ranji champion Karnataka. So, much was not expected from them. Shikhar Dhawan and Varun Aaron exploited the opportunity were impressive.

Shikhar Dhawan’s blitzkrieg 150 off 146 balls comprised of 18 boundaries and three sixes helped the Indian team to get rid of the problem of opener. Dhawan also rang the bell of his arrival in style and he showed he is fit and keen to play South Africa bowlers.


The South Africa will start on October 2 in Dharamsala, so Dhawan innings sounds positive for India.

The eye was also on Ravindra Jadeja, who  failed to do anything in the match. He did not get the chance to bat, but with the ball in hand he failed to impress as he scalped only one wicket, and that was the wicket of a tailender.

While Bangladesh, who filled the squad with some experienced players, failed to impress. Only middle order batsman Sabbir Hossain’s unbeaten 122 off 131 was the only resistance from the Bangladesh side in the first innings.

Wicket-keeper batsman Litton Das, Mominul Haque and Nasir Hossain, who were selected for first home Test against Australia failed. Only Jubair Hossain took two wickets and was impressive.

Brief score: Bangladesh 228 & 151 ( Mominul Haq 54, Litton Das 38, Ishwar Pandey 3 for 28, Jayant Yadav 3 for 48)

India 411 ( Shikhar Dhawan 150, Karun Nair 71, Vijay Shankar 86, Jubair Hossain 2 for 76)
