Dhawan powers India win over Tigers

The first match of Nidahas trophy 2018 was played between India and Sri Lanka, where Srilankan Lions have beaten the men in blue by five-wickets and registered their first win of this series. India chose to send in Rishabh Pant ahead of Suresh Raina to join Shikhar Dhawan at the crease.

There was an air of inevitability to the proceedings at the R Premadasa Stadium here yesterday when a flat Bangladesh team were comfortably beaten by India in a one-sided encounter.

Rohit agreed that India need to improve on catching. Liton Das, the beneficiary of two drops, managed 34 and Sabbir Rahman added 30 at No. 6, but apart from them, there were no contributions to speak of from the Bangladesh line-up.

The left-hand duo sent the bowlers on a leather hunt and taking India to a comfortable 6 wicket victory over their neighbours.

Tamim's misery was ended by a well-disguised short-ball from Shardul Thakur (1/25 in 4 overs), which climbed on him sharply.His mistimed pull-shot was taken easily by Unadkat at short fine-leg.

However, Dhawan and Suresh Raina stabilised the innings with a 68-run partnership, during which Dhawan brought up his half-century, before Raina was caught by Mehedy Hasan Miraz at square leg off the bowling of Rubel for 28.

Dhawan hit five fours and two sixes in his 43-ball knock before he became the final wicket to fall, holing out at long on off paceman Taskin Ahmed. Pandey (27*) and Dinesh Karthik (2*) scored the last few runs to take India to victory with eight balls remaining.

"We didn't bat well". Sabbir Rahman was the only other batsman to score 30, while all the other batsmen failed to cross the 20-run barrier. I think we are just one win away from getting a boost. Bowlers executed plans very well. We looked into what went wrong against Sri Lanka and we thought hitting back of a length was a good option. "We kept it simple and got the basics right, which was missing in the first game".

Liton Das (34, 30 balls) and former skipper Mushfiqur Rahim (18) added 31 runs for the third wicket.Rahim in fact, started with a switch hit sweep and a conventional slog sweep off Yuzvendra Chahal (1/19 in 4 overs), who didn't bowl too many boundary balls after that.Shankar, playing his second global game, impressed every one by hitting the right length time and again.
