India won by 6 wickets

Nidahas Trophy

After Bangladesh set a modest target of 140, India reached the target swiftly riding on a half-century by Shikhar Dhawan.

Jayawardene expressed his concern over lack of worldwide experience in Sri Lanka's bowling attack.

The last time these two teams (Bangladesh and India) met it was probably overconfidence that got the better of Bangladesh after they had swiped off 9 balls off the 11 required runs, off the first three balls of the final over of the 2016 World T20.

Starting their campaign from today, India will meet Bangladesh on March 8 and will again face Sri Lanka on March 12 and Bangladesh on March 14 in the series.

Shikhar Dhawan's brilliant knock of 55 runs supported by Suresh Raina's 28 and Manish Panday's unbeaten 27 saw India win by 6 wickets.

Once Mahmudullah was gone, Bangladesh began losing wickets at regular intervals, but Liton Das' 34 and Sabbir Rahman's 30 helped Bangladesh finish on 139/8 off their 20 overs. They (India) executed their plans very well, but we should have found ways to make more runs. While Dhawan continued his blitzkrieg, Pant was clean bowled by Rubel Hossain after scoring just 7 runs in 8 balls. Rishab Pant, promoted to No. 3, had the ideal opportunity to score runs given the absence of scoreboard pressure, but he fluffed his lines, lasting just eight balls before an over-ambitious heave sent the ball into the stumps via the inside edge.

Osaka ousts former No. 1 Sharapova at Indian Wells
In other action, former Wimbledon finalist Eugenie Bouchard crashed out, losing 6-3, 6-4 to Sachia Vickery of the United States. Naomi Osaka beat five-time Grand Slam champion Maria Sharapova in straight sets in the first round of the BNP Paribas Open.

"In the post-match presentation, he said", I think it was a great performance, something that was expected from us.

"We need to rotate the strike more often".

Rubel was the most successful bowler with two wickets, while Mustafizur and Taskin claimed one wicket each.

Captain Rohit Sharma termed India's performance as "clinical". He and Tamim Iqbal took the total to 35 before Iqbal fell in the last ball of the fifth over.

The failure of the batsmen took the sheen off decent bowling performances by pacers Mustafizur Rahman and Rubel Hossain.

The Men in Blue had lost their opening match against the hosts after the bowlers failed to defend their total of 175, and stand-in captain Rohit Sharma was hoping the team would learn from their mistakes ahead of the second game. "We want to get better as a fielding side", Rohit signed off. "Playing with this team is a dream and everyone in the dressing room is very supportive".
