game we play.
"We were 10 runs short after six overs but I felt 174 was a good score but Kushal Perera took the game away by playing an awesome knock".
"It was in the first six overs that they took the game away from us". If I see the small positives as big then I think I should stop playing cricket.
After the Indian batsmen put up a decent target of 175, their bowlers failed to make a mark as the hosts hammered them all around the park.
There was also Vijay Shankar, who became the prime victim of India's poor day on the field.
Pace spearhead Dushmantha Chameera claimed two wickets including the prized scalp of India skipper Rohit Sharma for nought in the first over of the innings.
Rohit would be hoping for an improved show from the bowlers against Bangladesh as another defeat can dampen their chances of reaching the final of the ongoing tri-series. He shared an important 68-run third-wicket stand with Suresh Raina (28) after the dismissals of Rohit Sharma (17) and Rishabh Pant (7). We kept it simple. "What we can do is play some good cricket on that particular day, if we can do so, execute our skills, hopefully we can do something good".
Rohit once again started with off-spinner Washington Sundar (0/23 in four overs) and Tamim Iqbal (15, 16 balls) found it hard to get going in the Powerplay overs.
Dhawan was the top-scorer for India as he blasted 90 off 49 balls studded with six boundaries and as many sixes.
Unadkat made the breakthrough with a short ball to Sarkar and he caught Tamim Iqbal (15) off Shardul Thakur (1-25) at short fine leg as Bangladesh lost their opening duo within the powerplay. We need to executive skills and try to be calm. I have been working very hard and really happy to be winning this.
"The dot balls created a lot of pressure".
