Good day for the tri-series then. Showstoppers India get off the mark, having now beaten Bangladesh in six out of the six Twenty20 Internationals they have come up against. Sri Lanka and Bangladesh lock horns on Saturday at the Premadasa, so expect people to outnumber sundries on the day at least. We'll be back for that. Until next time, this is Pratyush Sinha bidding goodbye alongside Akshay Maanay, K Nagaraju, Raju Peethala and Nikhil Jadhav. Have a great week ahead. It's three days to Monday.. ta-ta!

Rohit - captain, India: "I think it was a great performance, something that was expected from us. Right from the start to the end, it was clinical and a complete team effort. We looked into what went wrong in the game against Sri Lanka and we thought hitting the length was the option for us. We wanted their batsmen to take on the longer boundaries. Bowlers executed plans very well. We kept it simple and got the basics right, which was missing in the first game. Catching is something where there's always room for improvement. We want to get better as a fielding side. We are much better than that."

Mahmudullah - captain, Bangladesh: "We didn't bat well. We should have scored 30 more runs. We need to find out how to get runs on these kind of wickets. Think the bowlers did a pretty good job. We need to rotate the strike more often. Dot balls create pressure on batsmen. Need to find gaps and get boundaries in the middle overs. One win will boost us and will reflect in our game. Hopefully we'll get it."

Vijay Shankar - Player of the Match: "Been looking forward to this. Have been working hard, so very happy. Bowling has given me something extra in my game. We got wickets today, which helped us restrict them. A lot of people (inspired me). Being with this team is a dream for every cricketer. Everyone in the dressing room is very supportive."

Hang on for the presentations.. (6 guests, three cardboard cheques and Roshan Abeysinghe await us)

10:32pm local: A dumpster fire is more alive than this match ever was. The fact that Bangladesh couldn't lay into a second-string Indian side that was conceding extras and dropping catches -- as many as four -- is harrowing. And then to see young batsmen and Rohit Sharma fail in a chase sustained solely by the genius of Shikhar Dhawan must hurt, especially the new-age Bangladesh. India sailed through on yet another fifty by their left-handed opener, who's left his limitations behind in the yellow pages. What will this team do without him?

Rubel to Manish Pandey, 1 run, diving half-stop at point by Mehidy but that won't matter much. Manish Pandey has thrown his hands at the width and gotten his side over the line. India win by 6 wickets
Rubel to Manish Pandey, no run, doesn't get the timing right. Throws his hands and miscues the drive to cover

Scores level

Rubel to Karthik, 1 run, stays in the crease and slices this ball towards extra cover. Softs the impacts, and hence could buy some time for the single
Rubel to Manish Pandey, 1 run, cramped for room, Manish Pandey punches this back of a length delivery straight down the ground. 2 needed

Rubel Hossain [3.0-0-21-2] is back into the attack

The last over, hopefully

Mustafizur to Manish Pandey, 1 run, slower delivery ticked straight to square leg. And they've charged across for the run. And the throw at the bowler's end wasn't going to scare Manish Pandey one bit. 3 runs needed
Mustafizur to Manish Pandey, FOUR, there's width again and there's Manish Pandey at it again. Gets on his toes, reaches out and cuts it uppishly through cover-point
Mustafizur to Manish Pandey, no run, back-footed to run this round the corner. Finds the fielder though. Mustafizur tries to cramp Manish Pandey for room this time

I'm just counting down the runs for fun. You know why

Mustafizur to Karthik, 1 run, scythes at the width and thrashes it behind the point fielder. 8 needed
Mustafizur to Manish Pandey, 1 run, stays put and uses his hands to guide the ball behind backward point. He's using the width that Mustafizur's over the wicket angle to the right-hander comes readymade with. 9 needed
Mustafizur to Manish Pandey, FOUR, 119ks cutter going across Manish Pandey who deftly guides it late through third man. Dive in the deep but that's for nothing. 10 needed

Mustafizur Rahman [3.0-0-20-1] is back into the attack

Taskin Ahmed to Manish Pandey, 1 run, manoeuvres this from the crease. Just opens the face of the bat to guide this back of a length delivery past point. Just the 14 needed
Taskin Ahmed to Manish Pandey, 2 runs, uppishly punched over cover. Gets lucky with a little bit of height else.. Early into the shot

Dinesh Karthik, right handed bat, comes to the crease

Taskin Ahmed to Dhawan, out Caught by Liton Das!! Miscues it to deep mid-wicket. Taskin Ahmed was bowling from round the wicket, Dhawan tries to lay into that with his leg-side loft but gets it a bit straighter than intended. End of another of Dhawan's specials. He's nearly gotten India there.Dhawan c Liton Das b Taskin Ahmed 55(43) [4s-5 6s-2]

Taskin Ahmed to Dhawan, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!

Taskin Ahmed to Manish Pandey, 1 run, gets tall with the length and swivel-pulls this short ball one-legged, pirouetting on his left toe
Taskin Ahmed to Dhawan, 1 run, pushes it on the up to mid-off. Quick single in the face of that wide throw
Taskin Ahmed to Manish Pandey, 1 run, back of a length outside off, shunted to third man

Taskin Ahmed [2.0-0-22-0] is back into the attack

Nazmul Islam to Dhawan, no run, played back to a full ball and squirts it out somehow. Bails out, though. Mushfiq ran back and stylishly deflected the ball onto the stumps
Nazmul Islam to Manish Pandey, 1 run, now a full toss that's punches to long-on
Nazmul Islam to Manish Pandey, FOUR, possibly the worst follow-up delivery you can bowl. Beat him with turn last ball and now drops one short. Pulled off the back foot
Nazmul Islam to Manish Pandey, no run, a bit of turn. Manish Pandey's wanting to run a single to third man and nearly edges it to the keeper
Nazmul Islam to Dhawan, 1 run, fired flat on middle and leg, stabbed to long-on
Nazmul Islam to Manish Pandey, 1 run, outside off, Manish Pandey pushes a single to long-off
Rubel to Manish Pandey, 1 run, cramped by this back of a length delivery that kicks up extra, but Manish Pandey's nicely ridden it wide of cover. 27 needed off 30
Rubel to Dhawan, 1 run, slower length ball on the pads, Dhawan waits and swats it round the corner
Rubel to Dhawan, no run, back of a length 137ks delivery angled across, Dhawan can't get it past the off-side infield
Rubel to Manish Pandey, 1 run, stabbed to cover for a single
Rubel to Manish Pandey, 2 runs, gets off the mark with a jabby ramp over the slipper. Rahman runs across and cuts it off from deep backward point. Looked like a boundary until then

Manish Pandey, right handed bat, comes to the crease

Rubel to Raina, out Caught by Mehidy Hasan!! Once they find you out, they find you out. Short ball gets Raina again. Was caught in an awkward position, trying to play a short ball with a crouch instead of off back foot. Ends up chipping it tamely to the fielder at square leg. Raina c Mehidy Hasan b Rubel 28(27) [4s-1 6s-1]

Rubel to Raina, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!

Rubel Hossain [2.0-0-16-1] is back into the attack
