Maharoof: I have really worked hard after the game against Pakistan. The coaching staff worked hard. Dambulla has always been lucky for me. I was over the moon after I got the hat-trick. I just bowled good balls and I got the wickets. If you hit the right line and length in Dambulla, it does something for the bowlers. I really thank Sanga for taking that wonderful catch.

India knock Pakistan out of Asia Cup
June 19, 2010
Harbhajan Singh smashed the penultimate ball of the last over of Indian innings for a six to complete a tense win against arch-rivals Pakistan in the ongoing Asia Cup at Dambulla in Sri Lanka on Saturday night.

Chasing 268 for victory, the Indian chase at one point degenerated from a healthy 180 for 2 to 219 for 6.

In the end, some incredible hitting by Suresh Raina and an important cameo by Harbhajan Singh swayed the match in India’s favour.

With it, India became the first team to qualify for the finals.

A magic spell by part-time off-spinner Virender Sehwag helped India bundle out Bangladesh for a meagre 167 in the Asia Cup cricket tournament at the Rangiri Dambulla International stadium here on Wednesday.

Opting to bat, Bangladesh got off to a brisk start with Tamim Iqbal (22) and Imrul Kayes (37) raising 35 runs in 17 balls. But once Tamim perished to a low catch by Suresh Raina at short extra covers off Praveen Kumar, Bangladesh just could not force the pace against a disciplined Indian attack.

With Ashish Nehra limping off the field after a four-over spell, captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni turned to Sehwag and Rohit Sharma. Both struck pay dirt, wrapping up the insipid Bangladesh innings in four overs between them.

Sehwag’s brilliant figures read 2.5-0-6-4, while Rohit claimed one wicket, conceding just five runs in his only over.

Nehra (2/28), Harbhajan Singh (1/32) and Ravindra Jadeja (1/27) were also among wickets.

Kayes, who mishit Nehra to Sehwag at short square, top-scored with 37. There were contributions from Mohammad Ashraful (20), Mushfiqur Rahim (30) and Mahmudullah (23) but it wasn’t substantial to augment Bangladesh’s total.

Gambhir guides India to easy win

A composed 82 by Gautam Gambhir and an unbeaten 38 from skipper MS Dhoni ensured a comprehensive six-wicket victory for India against Bangladesh in Dambulla.

Click here for SCORECARD

India got off to a compact start in pursuit of a paltry Bangladesh target but lost Virender Sehwag in the process. Virat Kohli has joined Gautam Gambhir in the process.

Bangladesh skipper Shakib-al-Hasan struck twice in the same over to knock off Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma as India fell into a bit of a lurch in their chase.

Bangladesh are 167 all out

Virender Sehwag picked up his ODI best figures, picking up four wickets and conceding six runs to help India bowl out Bangladesh for a paltry 167.

Iqbal took Bangladesh off to a brisk start before being done in by Praveen Kumar.

Mohammad Ashraful struggled to get going in the middle and eventually fell to Nehra, caught by Praveen Kumar at deep square leg.

Nehra struck for the second time and Kayes was on his way back to the hut. Bangladesh are losing their way here- an all too similar script.

Harbhajan Singh joined the party for India. There was no turn on that one and Bangla skipper Shakib-al-Hasan was beaten all ends up as his timber lay in disarray.

Ravindra Jadeja picked up Mahmadullah and half the Bangladesh side was back in the pavilion.

Sixth man down for Bangladesh as Virender Sehwag gets Mushfiqur Rahim for 30.

The Toss

Bangladesh captain Shakib al Hasan won the toss and elected to bat first against India in their opening Asia Cup encounter at Dambulla.

Brief Preview

A rejuvenated India would look to redeem their pride and end a 15-year-old jinx when they start their Asia Cup campaign against Bangladesh at the Rangiri Dambulla ground today.

Hurting from their debacles in the ICC Twenty20 World Cup (West Indies) and the tri-series in Zimbabwe, Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s men would be desperate to win back the confidence of fans after being accused of being more loyal to their IPL teams than the country.
