Rajkot, November 7

Skipper 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 here today. Chasing an easy target of 154 on a far better track compared to the one used in the first T20I in Delhi, Rohit showed the gulf in class between him and the others on the park, hitting six fours and half-a-dozen risk-free sixes as India chased the target in 15.4 overs. The final game will be played in Nagpur on November 10.

Such was Rohit’s dominance during the 118-run opening stand that it managed to overshadow Shikhar Dhawan’s (31 off 27 balls) poor form. Earlier, Indian bowlers led by Yuzvendra Chahal made an impressive comeback to restrict Bangladesh to a sub-par 153/6. — PTI
