Normally @ImRo45 speeds up his innings post 50 but today he has done the opposite. BLASTED at the begining as a destructive opener, now playing much responsible as reputed T20 captain. This happens rarely in his game so let's call it #RohitsParadox.#IndvsBan#RohitSharmaDr. Suyash Bakliwal🇮🇳 (@Suyashbakliwal) November 7, 2019
Once he struggled to make his place in playing eleven, now he's in top 10 of all formats of cricket ODI, T20S, TEST. It's not luck or coincidence, it's his caliber and hard work.

A small observation while watching #IndvsBan T20 cricket match today. Why can't we stop overlooking small factors responsible for Air pollution. Do we really need fire crackers when we have #RohitSharma.#BCCI#sauravganguly#Cricket#AirPollution.Parag Malhotra (@ParagMalhotra4) November 7, 2019
Earlier in the day, Indian bowlers kept it tight in the final few overs to keep Bangladesh in check as they posted 153/6 in 20 overs in the second T20 international here on Thursday.
Wrist spinner Yuzvendra Chahal was the pick of the bowlers with figures of 2/28.
Bangladesh were off to a great start riding their opener but once Liton Das (29) was dismissed and the visitors lost the next three wickets in quick succession, India reined in and conceded 41 runs in the last five overs despite Bangladesh skipper hitting a 21-ball 30 (4x4)..
