I never thought I would be the reason for Bangladesh's defeat. We were so close to winning in the final but because of me, we lost. I want to apologize to the fans and ask for forgiveness," Rubel was quoted as saying by Bangladesh's leading newspaper <em>Prothom Alo</em>. <p></p> <p></p>Wicketkeeper batsman <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/Dinesh-Karthik" target="_blank">Dinesh Karthik</a> (29 runs off eight balls) played a brilliant cameo towards the end, hitting a six off the last ball to win the final for India, who chased down Bangladesh's 166 for 8. <p></p> <p></p>Karthik came into bat with scoreboard reading 133 for 5 at the end of 18 overs. He announced his arrival at the crease by smoking two sixes and a four off first three balls from Rubel. In the next three deliveries, Karthik accumulated six runs which left India needing 12 off the last over. <p></p> <p></p>The drama further unfolded when India needed five runs in the last ball. Kathik slammed a flat six over extra cover off Soumya Sarkar to clinch the issue. The Bangladesh captain, in the post match press conference, backed Rubel. <p></p> <p></p>"To be honest he did not miss much of the plan when he bowled. I don't know if there are many batsmen who can come and hit a six off the first ball, the next for a four and then again a six," Shakib was quoted as saying by The Daily Star.
