Bangladesh vs India, 24th T20 Match, Group 2, ICC World Twenty20 2014

Commentary

India won by 8 wkts | Bangladesh Vs India Live Score, 24th T20 Match, Group 2

It has become a norm in this tournament that after a thrilling first game the second becomes pretty dull. Hopefully, tomorrow's double header can change that. First up is Netherlands against New Zealand and the second is the all important match, a virtual quarterfinal between England and South Africa. Do join us for those games. Until then, take care and Bye, Bye!
Dhoni: 'No celebrations. We were unlucky when we played in Sri Lanka last time. I wanted to have a hit and there are some big games coming up. It was at the death and it was my time so told Yuvi that I would go in. Hopefully, Jadeja gets a knock in. We still do not know who our main bowler is in the death. You can't complain with easy games, you can't tell a Virat Kohli to get hit-wicket and come back. We will try to do the most in the practise sessions. '
Rahim: 'We are losing a couple of early wickets and even set batsmen are throwing their wickets away. They have very good spinners and you cannot afford to play too many dot balls in the middle overs. We are still working on our best XI. There are still two matches left and we are looking forward to it.'
Ashwin: 'Yeah the conditions were not bad at all. Mishy has been bowling well. He has got a couple of Man of the Match awards himself. I am game to bowl at the death too. Dhoni turns up to me and asks me to bowl. That is quite expected. We have played some excellent cricket so far. We did it in the Champions Trophy too. You saw the way MS finished it in the end. There is nothing to worry about.'
Ashwin is the Man of the Match for his figures of 2 for 15.
India register their third comfortable win and become the first team to enter the semis. With this win India are now the No.1 T20 side in the World. It was nicely set up by the spinners and the batsmen didn't make much fuss of the target. Dhawan could not get going as he perished early but it was once again Rohit and Kohli who added a 100-run stand, the second in as many matches to see India through. Dhoni promoted himself up the order and spent some time out in the middle. Bangladesh bowlers did not have much in the bank. They tried their best but could not restrict the two in-form batsmen from playing their shots. Stay tuned for the presentation....
