India claimed an easy eight-wicket victory againt Bangladesh in a Group 2 Match of World T20 at Sher-e Bangla Stadium in Mirpur, Dhaka this evening.
India were driven by twin half-centuries from Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli who scored 56 and 57 respectively to chase down the small target set up by the Tigers with 9 balls remaining.
Earlier, the Tigers stuttered to 138 after Indian spinners restricted Bangladesh batsmen for most of the innings in a Group 2 Match of World T20 at Sher-e Bangla Stadium in Mirpur, Dhaka this evening.
Bangladesh were driven by Anamaul Haque and skipper Mushfiqur Rahim's 44 and 24 respectively, before Mahmudullah chipped in at the end with 33 off 23 balls.
Amit Mishra was once again the pick of the bowlers for India, picking up 3 wickets for 26 runs in 4 overs.
Earlier, India won the toss and elected to field.
Bangladesh today will desperately seek for a recovery from a lean patch as they face India in their second match of the World T20 at Mirpur today.
Bangladesh have lost all 7 seven Tests and the lone T20I they played against India, and won only three of the 25 ODIs against them.
The hosts are also going through a lean patch this year, as they have lost seven ODIs and four T20I since February, which included humiliating losses against Associate Nations Afghanistan in the Asia Cup and Hong Kong in the qualifying round of the World T20.
