India secured their second victory in the Super Eight stage of the T20 World Cup 2024 on Saturday, defeating Bangladesh by 50 runs at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua. Kuldeep Yadav led the bowling attack with a three-wicket haul, supported by Jasprit Bumrah and Arshdeep Singh who took two wickets each. This restricted Bangladesh to 146 runs while chasing a challenging target of 197 runs set by India.

Bangladesh’s top scorers included Najmul Hossain Shanto with 40 runs, Tanzid Hasan with 29 runs, and Rishad Hossain with 24 runs.
