India put up a strong show in the second T20I of the Nidahas Trophy 2018 to down Bangladesh by six wickets. Electing to field, Indian bowlers put up an improved show after Tuesday’s pounding against Sri Lanka and restricted Bangladesh to 139 for 8. Vijay Shankar, playing his second international match, picked up two wickets and gave away just 32 runs from his four overs. Jaydev Unadkat picked three, while Yuzvendra Chahal gave away 19 off his four overs and bagged the top scorer Liton Das.
