Dhawan powers India to 6-wicket victory over Bangladesh
Colombo, March 8 - India produced an all-round show to thump Bangladesh by six wickets in their second match of the Nidahas Trophy Twenty20 International (T20I) cricket tri-series here on Thursday.
India restricted Bangladesh to 139/8 and then chased down the target with six wickets and 1.2 overs to spare to make a strong comeback after the loss to Sri Lanka in the opening match.
Shikhar Dhawan continued his red-hot form with a 55 off 43 deliveries to play the lead role in India's batting. But the win was mostly set-up by the bowlers Jaydev Unadkat (3/38), Vijay Shankar (2/32), Yuzvender Chahal (1/19) and Shardul Thakur (1/25).
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.
