India cricketers moved closer to a semi-final spot in the Men’s T20 World Cup with a 5 run win against Bangladesh in a rain affected match in Adelaide.
India top Group Two and a win in their final game against Zimbabwe will guarantee their place in the semi-finals.
Bangladesh needs to defeat Pakistan and hope other results go their way.
Set 185 to win Bangladesh moved to 66 without loss in seven with the innings getting a boost from Litton Das who made 50 runs before rain stopped play.
Bangladesh were 17 runs ahead of the Duckworth-Lewis-Stern par score but had their target revised to 151 off 16 overs.
Needing 20 runs from the last over, Nurul Hasan, got a six and a four to take the game to the last ball.
A six would have made it a tie and a super over.
However, Arshdeep Singh conceded just a single to leave Bangladesh on 145 for 6.
Earlier, KL Rahul’s fifty and Virat Kohli’s third half-century of the tournament helped India post 184-6 while Mahmud led the bowling attack for Bangladesh with 3 for 47 runs.
