In the IND vs BAN warm-up game, Mahmudullah Riyad provided a much-needed breakthrough for Bangladesh as he removed none other than the Indian skipper, Rohit Sharma. 

With this, he broke the budding partnership between him and Rishabh Pant. Rohit's 23 off 19 ball cameo consisted of two boundaries and one humongous six straight to the stands.

Watch the video here:

Veteran Riyad bowled a fuller delivery pitched in line with the stumps, Rohit got down on one knee and attempted to play the slog sweep. However, he mis-timed his stroke resulting in hitting it away with just the bottom of the bat. The ball went high and landed straight in the hands of Rishad Hossain who was comfortably stationed at the long on.

Previously, Sanju Samson was dismissed for a single run by Shoriful Islam, who struck in his very first over. Considering, the cut-throat competition for making to the playing XI, Samson should have been more careful, while he did attempt to ask for a review but unfortunately as per rules no reviews are available for a warm-up game.

At the time of writing, Rishabh Pant is inching closer to his fifty alongside No.1 T20I batter, Suryakumar Yadav who is also looking in sublime touch. India is at 92/2.
