Dhawan powers India over Bangladesh

Dhawan powers India over Bangladesh

Rohit and Dhawan start will always be important for India's chances but against Bangladesh, they would like to score more in the death overs than they did against Sri Lanka.

India lost the inaugural match of the Nidahas T20I series against Sri Lanka by 5 wickets. Yuzvendra Chahal and Shardul then bowled some tight overs to make the chase interesting but Thisara Perera (22*) and Dasun Shanaka (18*) wiped off the arears comfortably to seal two points.

Mustafizur Rahman and Rubel Hossain made some initial inroads in to the India batting with the former accounting for India skipper Rohit Sharma (17) while the latter castled Risabh Pant (7) to increase the pressure on the young man from whom much is expected. India chased down the target in 18.4 overs to register their first win of the series.

After surviving Bangladesh's review of a not out lbw call from the umpire, Dhawan fired a pull over midwicket for his second maximum of the match, before a four in the next over brought up his half-century off 35 balls. Shikhar Dhawan scored highest 90 runs for the team India.

In the absence of the rested Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar, the likes of Shardul Thakur and Jaydev Unadkat need to up their game in the unforgiving death overs.

Partly sunny for Thursday, but snow showers on Friday
Significant accumulations are possible with northern Aroostook receiving up to a foot of snow with locally higher amounts. From ice and snow to sunny skies and back again - it's that time of year when the weather can't make up it's mind.

On February 2016, when Sri Lanka last beat India in a T20I match. Despite posting 174 on the board, India ended up on the losing side after Kusal Perera hit a match-winning 37-ball 66. They lost total five wickets there. That said, we still had a decent score but the kind of start Sri Lanka got was wonderful.

Unlike the first game against Sri Lanka, Indian bowlers were right on the mark from the start after captain Rohit Sharma won the toss and opted to bowl.

Liton couldn't utilise the chances that he got as Chahal enticed him with a flighted delivery as Raina took a simple catch at long-off. "It was a decent wicket", he said.

Manish Pandey, with his unbeaten 27 off 19 deliveries, ensured that the Indian side got over the line with 6 wickets in hand. "Hopefully we'll get it". Having seen the wicket here - it was flat - I thought we could have accelerated towards the end. "I am happy that my consistency is going very good and I am enjoying it".
