India Beat Bangladesh by Six Wickets in Nidahas Trophy T20I Tri-Series

Rohit and Dhawan start will always be important for India's chances but against Bangladesh, they would like to score more in the death overs than they did against Sri Lanka.

Hosts Sri Lanka needed 24 runs in the last three overs and in the 18th overs with 2 fours and a six they scored 16 runs and won against India.

Chameera was the pick of the bowlers with two wickets, while Pradeep, Gunathilaka and Jeevan Mendis chipped in with one wicket apiece.

Shikhar Dhawan (55) recorded his second successive fifty to lead India's charge, with Manish Pandey's 19-ball 27 not out getting the job done with eight deliveries remaining.

Earlier, Sri Lanka were undone by their inability to stitch together any meaningful partnerships as India's spinners kept the scoring rate in check with tight line and length.

Just when things seemed good in the middle, Gunathilaka was dismissed by pacer Jaydev Unadkat (1/35) in the fifth over with the scoreboard reading 70/2.

With Dinesh Karthik finishing unbeaten on 13, India finished on 174/5 off their 20 overs.

The Sri Lankans players were on top throughout the match with an all-around performance. SL chased down the target in with 9 balls to spare.

Bangladesh will rely upon Mustafizur Rahman to do get them vital wickets.

Sri Lanka stand-in captain Dinesh Chandimal only made 14 runs before he was clean bowled by Yuzvendra Chahal. "It was a decent wicket", he said.

Soon after winning a review against an LBW decision, Tamim Iqbal hit Shardul Thakur for back-to-back fours in the next two balls.

"Right from the start to the end, it was clinical and a complete team effort", India skipper Rohit Sharma said after the win.

"Very happy as a team". Then Dhawan and Manish Pandey (37) got together to fix the early damage with a solid 95-run stand for the third wicket. If we didn't lose a wicket we would have been more aggressive.
