Bangladesh pacer Rubel to fans after conceding 22 runs

Tuesday, 20 Mar, 2018

"We have showed some good character and played the game in the right spirit and I can not ask more than that from my team", the all-rounder added.

In a thrilling final over, Dinesh Karthik scored a six of the last ball of the match off medium-pacer Soumya Sarkar and helped India to score a four-wicket win over Bangladesh which enabled India to clinch the Nidahas Trophy. The win also helped India to maintain their ideal record against Bangladesh in T20Is."I am really happy".

Shakib also lauded the performance of his team, who have never won a T20 match against India in eight meetings so far and have also lost 11 of their last 14 games in the shortest format.

Dhaka: Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) is threatening to boycott India during all the tournaments in future.

Sharma, who set the chase with his 42-ball 56, said that dropping Karthik down to No. 7 was part of a plan that came off well. Pandey displayed some superb shots while Shankar also supported him well at the other end.

"I think it's a different style. but one thing I haven't seen throughout the tournament enough is yorkers", said Lee. I asked the umpire whether the first ball was given a bouncer.

"We always knew Soumya Sarkar is not a premier bowler. It is not every day that you get a chance to beat India", Mushfiq said.

A crestfallen Bangladesh pacer Rubel Hossain, who leaked 22 runs in the 19th over to help India claw back chasing 167 and win the final of the Nidahas Trophy Twenty20 global (T20I) tri-series, wants to be forgiven by fans.

Meanwhile, Washington Sundar, adjudged Man of the Series, said it was challenging to bowl in the Powerplay overs. We have put in a lot of hard work and it's good to have won the tournament at the end of it all.

"Now I am not saying I agree with what happened and I am not saying that I don't agree with what happened, but what I can say is that we don't want to get into a stage where players can't even look at a batsman, batsman can't even look at a bowler without getting into trouble".

"We wanted to bowl our best bowler in the 18th and 19th".

Dinesh Karthik is no Hrishikesh Kanitkar or Joginder Sharma but the Indian batsman is not complaining about the "memories of a lifetime" that his last-ball six against Bangladesh created.
