Bangladesh cricket team stunned India cricket team with a 7-wicket win in the first T20I at the Arun Jaitley Stadium on Sunday.
Bangladesh now lead the three-match T20I series 1-0.
Going into the contest in absence of Shakib al Hasan, Tamim Iqbal, and other experienced player, Bangladesh fared well after winning the toss and opting to bowl first.
The team managed early jolts as Rohit Sharma fell in the first over, and K L Rahul couldn't do much at number three. Shreyas Iyer and Shikhar Dhawan managed to add some runs but it was cut short after Iyer's departure.
Shivam Dube couldn't make his debut memorable as he perished soon, too. Rishabh Pant, Krunal Pandya, and Washington Sundar contribued in bits and pieces, taking India to respectable 148/6 in 20 overs.
In its reply, Bangladesh had the shaky start, too, as Deepak Chahar scalped Liton Das in the first over. However, Mohammad Naim (26) and Soumya Sarkar (39) made some room for a chase.
India strived hard to get a third breakthrough, but it came a bit late for the side as Sarkar and Mushfiqur Rahim (60 not out) managed to get past the challenges and maintain the rhythm.
Yuzvendra Chahal did manage to put some break in opposition's spree, but his last over proved expensive.
the second-last over turned the match in Bangladesh's direction completely as Khaleel Ahmed went on to conceed 18 runs off it.
In the end, Rahim and Mahmudullah managed to take their team home with three balls to spare.
