Dhawan leads India past Bangladesh in T20 Tri-Series

India's stand-in captain Rohit Sharma remains confident about the team bouncing back from their loss against Sri Lanka in the opening game of the Nidahas Twenty20 Tri-Series cricket tournament on Tuesday. Meanwhile, Bangladesh, who have never defeated India in this format, will be low on confidence - having lost 12 of their last 13 T20Is.

After the powerplay, the "Men in Blue" picked wickets at regular intervals to keep the Bangladesh batsmen in check.

Earlier Bangladesh's batting faltered with only Liton Das, who top-scored with 34 and Sabbir Rahman, who hit 30 off 26 balls, giving some respectability to the total. Moreover, this is the first time India and Bangladesh are clashing in a T20I match in Sri Lanka. Shikhar Dhawan and Manish Pandey rebuilt the Indian innings and eventually posted a good score of 175 for 6.

In the last over, Taskin Ahmed (8 not out) and Rubel Hossain (0) tried their best to make as many runs as they could but Hossain got run out while trying to steal a second run. Soon, Perera was dismissed by spinner Washington Sundar to bring India back into the game.Upul Tharanga (17) also failed to utilise the start he got and was bowled by Chahal.Now with the scoreboard reading 136/5, Shanaka and Perera waited for the bad balls and rotated the strike. In the field, they were poor as they dropped as many as five catches. The player combinations will surely be one area that they will be looking at because in the first game the team struggled in nearly every department. The tidy performances of all-rounders Suresh Raina and Vijay Shankar with the ball come as a big boost to the third-ranked T20I side. "India is still a very good side, we do have that respect".

India take on Bangladesh on Thursday and will be hoping to register their first win of the series.

Kusal Perera was in some mood tonight as he smashed Indian bowlers all around the park with pacer Shardul Thakur bearing the brunt of his assault, leaking 27 runs in his first over of the night. As the local team Sri Lanka started to play confidently and they got the result.

India is playing Bangladesh in a Twenty20 global for the first time since the 2016 World T20 encounter in Bangalore. The opener used DRS to save himself and then punished Shardul Thakur with back-to-back boundaries.
