One down famed batsman Virat Kohli hammered an unconquered 57 runs off 50 balls featuring three fours and two sixes and Indian skipper MS Dhoni led the team towards the victory contributing an unbeaten 12-ball 22 runs hitting one four and two sixes.
Former national skipper Mashrafe Bin Mortaza and inform pacer Al Amin Hossain took one wicket each conceding 23 and 38 runs respectively in their quota of four overs. Earlier, hosts Bangladesh scored 138 for 7 in stipulated 20 overs against their giant neighbour India in their 2nd Super 10 match of the ICC World Twenty20 in front of houseful crowd Friday evening.
After conceding a frustrating defeat against West Indies in Super-10 and an embarrassing defeat against lowly Associate member Hong Kong in the qualifiers, Bangladesh made two changes in their line-up recalling all rounder Nasir Hossain and top order batsman Shamsur Rahman replacing Mominul Haque and Sabbir Rahman.
