In reply, India romped home in the 19th over with the in-form Shikhar Dhawan (55, 43b, 5x4, 2x6) smashing yet another half-century. He shared an important 68-run third-wicket stand with Suresh Raina (28) after the dismissals of Rohit Sharma (17) and Rishabh Pant (7). His departure, however, was once again upsetting for a kind of batsman he is.
STAT ATTACK: 55, 90, 47, 24, 72 - runs made by Dhawan in his last five T20s. India chose to send in Rishabh Pant ahead of Suresh Raina to join Shikhar Dhawan at the crease.
Tariffs could have unintended effects in Trump country
Worsening trade ties will test China's policy of " strategic composure" in dealing with Trump's America First ethos. We can not possibly be a threat to national security in the USA , so we are counting on being excluded", she said.
Rubel was the most successful bowler with two wickets, while Mustafizur and Taskin claimed one wicket each.
Kusal Perera's brilliant 66 off 37 balls and some crucial contributions from the middle-order helped Sri Lanka beat India in the first game. Rishabh Pant got out for just 7 and missed out on yet another great opportunity to make his mark in global cricket. He remained unbeaten at 27.
India got off the mark in the Nidahas Trophy by claiming a six-wicket victory over Bangladesh in Colombo without getting out of second gear. Put to bat first, Bangladesh managed to score only 140/8 in 20 overs. "Right from the start to the end, it was clinical and a complete team effort", he said at the post-match presentation ceremony. Bangladesh struggled to find the middle of the willow nearly throughout their innings and ended up with a below-par total of 139.
Keep in mind to change your clocks: Daylight Saving Time starts this weekend
Educators lament the fact that daylight saving time means kids are waiting at bus stops or walking to school in the dark. Others see daylight saving time as a moment to check on some household duties that have fallen by the wayside.
Yuzvendra Chahal (1/19) and Shardul Thakur (1/25) contributed a wicket each for India , while Liton Das (34) and Sabbir Rahman (30) were the top scorers for Bangladesh .
Skipper Mahmudullah (1 off 8 balls) was frustrated by Chahal's variations and in his desperation, tried to hit Shankar inside out, thus giving an easy catch to Shardul at sweeper cover boundary.
Das put up a fearless effort and along with Sabbir Rahman took the total to 107 before he fell to Yuzvendra Chahal in the 16th over. "We need to find out how to get runs on these kinds of wickets". Jaydev Unadkat (3/38) had the most number of wickets but he was inconsistent throughout his four-over spell with a mixture of good deliveries followed by half-volleys. Bangladesh, though, will be content with their bowling performance as Taskin Ahmed, Rubel Hossain, Mustafizur Rahman and Mehidy Hasan put their best foot forward in a below-par total's defense.
