Dhawan powers India to six-wicket T20 win over Bangladesh

India best Bangladesh in the 2nd T20 match by 6 wickets and open his account in the table with 2 points. The inability of the top three to post big scores has been the biggest factor behind Bangladesh's recent woeful run. And they did precisely that riding on an uber cool knock by Shikhar Dhawan to register a six-wicket victory.

Dhawan shared a 68-run stand for the third wicket with Suresh Raina (28), who was dropped on one by Mehidy Hasan.

India were given a paltry target of 140 by Bangladesh after some good bowling by the Men in Blues on a slow Premadasa track.

Later, Manish Pandey remained unbeaten at 27 off 19 deliveries to see India home.

Shankar won the Player of the Match Award for or taking two wickets and giving away 32 runs in the four overs he bowled at an economy rate of 8.00. Without Shakib, Bangladesh couldn't do much against the Indian team despite sloppy fielding and dropped catches at regular intervals. We are much better than that.

"We're still searching for it and I think we'll get it".

"I thought the bowlers executed their plans really well".

With the scoreboard reading 35/2, wicketkeeper Mushfiqur Rahim (18) arrived at the crease and played some handsome shots, but his 14-ball knock was cut short by medium pacer Vijay Shankar in the ninth over. I've been working hard on my bowling over the last few years and bowling is something that has given me something extra in my game. "Playing with this team is a dream and everyone in the dressing room is very supportive".
