India opener Shubman Gill notched up his fifth ODI ton that saw him smash five sixes and eight fours in his 133-ball 121 that almost took the game away from Bangladesh.

Axar Patel’s 34-ball 42 almost took India to the brink of victory late on in the game but Mustafizur Rahman outfoxed him with a trademark cutter in the 49th over to take the Tigers on the shores of victory.

The Fizz picked up three wickets for 50 runs, with two of the scalps coming in the 49th over, while Sheikh Mahedi Hasan and debutant Tanzim Hasan Sakib scalped two wickets each.

Earlier, fifties of Bangladesh skipper Shakib Al Hasan and batter Towhid Hridoy helped the Tigers post 265.
