India vs Bangladesh 2nd T20I Highlights: India are looking to level the series in Rajkot.

India vs Bangladesh (Ind vs Ban) 2nd T20 Highlights: Rohit Sharma made it a memorable 100th T20 International blending grace with brutality in his 85 off 43 balls as India cantered to a series-levelling eight-wicket victory over Bangladesh on Thursday.

Chasing an easy target of 154 on far better track compared to Feroz Shah Kotla, Rohit showed the gulf in class between him and the others on the park, hitting six fours and half a dozen of risk-free sixes as India chased the target in 15.4 overs. Batting first Bangladesh posted 153/6 in 20 overs. Yuzvendra Chahal broke the Bangladesh batting unit’s backbone after a fiery start from their openers.

India vs Bangladesh 2nd T20I: Highlights

22:22 (IST)07 Nov 2019
IND win by 8 wickets

After Rohit's belligerence, Shreyas Iyer and KL Rahul complete the formalities for India as they chase down 154 in 15.4 overs and level the series 1-1

22:17 (IST)07 Nov 2019
India just 15 away

Shreyas Iyer is ensuring that not too much time is wasted and slams Fizz past the boundary ropes. In the next over he takes on Al Amin. This will be over all too soon.  Shreyas Iyer is enjoying his batting, three fours and a six for his 22 runs off 11 balls.

22:06 (IST)07 Nov 2019
Rohit Sharma falls for 85

Just when it seemed like nobody could stop the Hitman,  Aminul Islam gets his man! wasnt the best ball he bowled. It was a flipper which was short and Sharma went for the pull. Rohit cleared his front leg and went for the big swipe across the line, ekes it off the thick top-edge and the sub fielder at deep mid-wicket. No chance of a 100 in 100th T20I. IND-  125/2

21:56 (IST)07 Nov 2019
Dhawan departs against run of play

A wicket for BAN atlast. Aminul Islam cleans up Shikhar Dhawan for a scratchy 27-ball 31 and breaks the 118-run partnership. He was beaten in the air. IND- 119/1

21:55 (IST)07 Nov 2019
3 SIXES IN A ROW

No prized for guessing! Its the HITMAN -

Incredible hitting from Rohit

9.1 - Welcomes Mosaddek with maximum over mid-wicket.

9.2 - over fine leg for another maximun

9.3 - over deep mid-wicke

Fifty for Rohit

Gets there with another SIX! What an innings this has been, comes in just 23 balls. Will he get to a 100 today? Meanwhile, IND- 89/0 after 8 overs

21:39 (IST)07 Nov 2019
Dhawan into the act

Shikhar Dhawan steps on the gas against Aminul. 4 | 0 | 2 | 4 | 2 . Highest partnership for India for the opening wicket against Bangladesh. 13 runs of the over. IND- 76/0

21:32 (IST)07 Nov 2019
OH MY GOD!

There is no stopping Rohit Sharma today! Awesome to watch. This time he has dispatched Shafiul straight down the ground and ball hits the ropes directly. He moves on to 46 off 21. Flat six - 77 metres. IND-  63/0 after 6 ovs | Powerplay comes to an end

21:27 (IST)07 Nov 2019
Rohit Sharma dealing in boundaries

15 runs off the 4th over and Rohit begins the next over with consecutive boundaries. This is a A MASTERCLASS from Rohit Sharma who's still dealing in boundaries!

21:22 (IST)07 Nov 2019
SIXXXX

Rohit Sharma, on one leg, lofts it straight over the bowler's head. Absolute class! This is just too good from the HITMAN which leave Mustafizur scratching his head!

Effortless from Rohit

FOUR, The Indian captain with a booming cover drive which bisects the mid-off and extra cover perfect. Rarely do you see him hitting the ball into the fielders hands as he has the natural ability to find the gaps. IND- 26/1

21:18 (IST)07 Nov 2019
Ganguly's glowing tribute

Rohit Sharma, who is leading India in the three-match Twenty20 International (T20I) series against Bangladesh, walked out to play his 100th match in the shortest format of the game on Thursday.

21:09 (IST)07 Nov 2019
IND off to a flier

Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan will open for India. Mustafizur will open the attack for Bangladesh and Dhawan is on the charge- consecutive boundaries for the southpaw. A fabulous drive through the covers and then a clip off the pads races him to 8 in 4 balls. IND- 11/0 after 1 over

20:48 (IST)07 Nov 2019
Bangladesh finish at 153/6

Two runs off the last ball and Bangladesh finish at 153/6 after 20 overs. They would have been gunning for much much more than that at the 10-over mark. Looks like a below-par score. India need to chase down 154. The approach from them will surely be different from Sunday. 

20:44 (IST)07 Nov 2019
Khaleel bowls the 20th

Rohit keeps faith in Khaleel. Has leaked 37 runs in his three overs so far. But with the dangerous Bangladesh top order - Naim in particular had punished him - back in the pavilion, now might be a good time for Khaleel to get some confidence back. Has strayed too short today. And he is bowling fuller in this over. There's some conscious thought that has gone into this change of length. Bangladesh get to 150 with two balls left in the innings.

20:40 (IST)07 Nov 2019
Chahar strikes

Deepak Chahar is brought on for the 19th over. And he gets the key wicket of Mahmudullah. The captain falls for 30. Bangladesh lose their 6th. Bangladesh have lost their way a bit in the later half of this innings. Bangladesh 142/6 after 18.3 overs

20:38 (IST)07 Nov 2019
Chahal signs off

Chahal signs off with figures of 2/28 in his four overs. What a brilliant shift this has been from him. Mosaddek Hossain just failed to deal with his turn in the 18th over. Mahmudullah is on 30 off 20 balls at the moment but he has not got the support he has required in these last few overs. 

20:30 (IST)07 Nov 2019
Wicket

Afif fiends Rohit Sharma in the deep, who makes no mistake this time. Holds on to it despite having to take a catch running back. Some joy for Khaleel Ahmed as well. Had been hammered by the Bangladesh openers. Has something to show for in the wickets column now. Bangladesh lose their fifth. Can somebody hang around to give support to Mahmudullah? 

20:26 (IST)07 Nov 2019
Rohit has some fun

Rohit Sharma is such a refreshing captain! He remembers the primal purpose of playing sports even in the heat of battle - to have fun. He reprimands Shreyas Iyer for a sloppy throw, then puts in a comical looking loopy throw when the ball comes to him in the outfield. Has a wide grin on his face afterwards. Bangladesh 123/4 after 16 overs
