Dhoni, Rahul hit tons beats Bangladesh in warm-up
India went down in their first and came back strongly today to hammer 359. They will be pretty pleased by KL Rahul’s century, as he stakes a claim for the No. 4 position. Kuldeep had a poor IPL, his worst so far, and he will get a good sleep tonight after his three-for. India’s fielding was pretty spot on too, barring the odd overthrow.
Bangladesh, on the other hand, had one game washed out and today they started very well on a slightly green pitch in overcast conditions but then witnessed two centuries, from Rahul and Dhoni. They did win a tri-series coming into this tournament but they would have loved to get a better performance before the main event starts.
