TL;DR: Dhawan, bowlers set up commanding win

We need to improve our catching.

India won the toss after a brief hiatus and Rohit Sharma put Bangladesh to bat first.

Skipper Sharma once again started with off-spinner M.S. Washington Sundar (0/23 in 4 overs), and the normally unsafe Tamim Iqbal (15 off 16 balls) found it hard to get going in the Powerplay overs.

Once Mahmudullah was gone, Bangladesh began losing wickets at regular intervals, but Liton Das' 34 and Sabbir Rahman's 30 helped Bangladesh finish on 139/8 off their 20 overs. Opener Soumya Sarkar was the first to fall in the third over.

"We probably played more than 50 dot balls today [68, to be exact], and when that happens you create pressure on individual batsmen", he said.

Jaydev Unadkat (3 for 38) was the pick of the bowlers for India while Vijay Shankar bowled smartly to return with 2 for 32.

But just when things seemed good in the middle, Das was dismissed by leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal in the 16th over.

The failure of the batsmen took the sheen off decent bowling performances by pacers Mustafizur Rahman and Rubel Hossain. Dushmantha Chameera impressed but was taken apart in the death overs while the rest of the bowlers failed to contain the runs. Rohit Sharma undefeated streak as a captain end in the previous game. They executed their plans very well but we should have found ways to make more runs.

However, Dhawan and Suresh Raina stabilised the innings with a 68-run partnership, during which Dhawan brought up his half-century, before Raina was caught by Mehedy Hasan Miraz at square leg off the bowling of Rubel for 28.

"Whoever comes from India is a very strong team". But between overs 7 and 12 - while top order batsmen were still at the crease - they scored four runs or fewer in four separate overs, and the innings lost steam. That dropped catch proved expensive for Bangladesh in the final tally. The tournament has started in 6th March, 2018 with the inaugural match which was between India and Sri Lanka. By that time, it didn't matter any more.

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. "It's about playing smart - according to the situation - if there needs to be change in the strike and going to the other side that's what we have to do", Ratnayake said.
