India win last-ball World T20 thriller

Hosts India snatched victory from the jaws of defeat to keep alive their hopes of reaching the World Twenty20 semi-finals with a dramatic one-run win over Bangladesh on Wednesday.

Bangladesh, chasing 147 for victory in the Group Two match, needed 11 runs off the last over bowled by seamer Hardik Pandya and made the perfect start as Mushfiqur Rahim (11) smashed fours off the first two balls.

However, they then lost three wickets in four deliveries as a jubilant India team scraped over the line to climb to second in the table while their opponents remained bottom following a third defeat.
