commentary

So, Indians had a whale of a time at the Dubai International stadium again. They almost replicated their performance against Pakistan and were clinical in every facet of the game. They will be up against Pakistan again on Sunday. And all Indian fans will remember how Pakistan came storming back against India in their second encounter in the Champions Trophy. Have a rest tomorrow and join us on Sunday for another double-header. Until then, this is Varun Dixit signing off on behalf of Raju Peethala, Hariprasad, Sriram AS, Rishi Roy and our scorers Reddy Sekhar and Vinod.

Jadeja, Man of the Match: Finally, I am playing after 15 months in an ODI. I always wanted to make a mark when I got the chance. Finally, I got a chance today and I am very happy. Kuldeep and Chahal were also bowling well and luckily I was getting wickets at the other end. That's how bowling works. I try to prove and perform in every format. I will try to play my role with bat too if the opportunity comes against Pakistan.

Rohit Sharma, India captain: It was a clinical performance right from the start to restrict them to 170-odd. We always knew it was better batting under lights. It is important on this pitch to rotate bowlers as batsmen get used to the bowlers quickly. Conditions were challenging but our bowling unit responded very well for us. Chahal and Kuldeep have been bowling really well. Jadeja played an ODI after very long time. To come out and play an ODI like this is exceptional. Kuldeep and Chahal will have an odd off game. All the bowlers bowled according to the plan. When everything goes to plan, it looks easy. We always knew that it will never be easy for the new batsmen so we wanted one of the top-order batsmen to be out there till the end. We will go back and recover and come back fresh against Pakistan and try to replicate this performance.

Mashrafe Mortaza, Bangladesh captain: If you look at the batting, we lost wickets from the start. Against Sri Lanka we lost wickets but had a middle-order partnership that did well. You have to back yourself, it was a decent wicket to bat on. We couldn't make any partnership today. We could have made 250-260. It might have been a better track for batting later, but 260-270 would have made for a good match. You can't ask bowlers to defend 170 in a 50-over match, so I think our batsmen have to take more responsibility to build the innings. One match can change everything; we are still in the tournament, and we need to do well against Afghanistan next time. They're a tough side to beat because of their bowling, but we can definitely beat them if we get 260-270 on the board. Our bowling has been up to the mark but our batting certainly has scope for improvement.

22:14 Local Time, 18:14 GMT, 23:44 IST: Rohit Sharma has a bright smile on his face. That sums up the performance of his side in this match. It was a walk in the park for the Indians. The comeback man Jadeja did all the damage in the first innings. And Bangladesh never recovered from there. Mehidy Hasan and Mortaza guided them to a respectable total but 170 odd runs on the board will never challenge this Indian batting line-up. Rohit and Shikhar got India off to a perfect start and Bangladesh never looked like defending it. Dhawan and Rayudu parted ways with Rohit after getting starts. Dhoni was promoted to number 4 and he looked in his element at the crease, while trying to to finish it with a six, he got out to Mortaza. Karthik joined Rohit and they eased India to victory. Time for the presentations.
