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?
