The Dilscoops, switch-hits, nutmegs - if all of them had a voice, they might just have this to say to Rohit: ' Try us, please. ' Such are his mesmerizing powers that every shot in the cricketing book craves to have a bite of Rohit's gifted timing. We have witnessed an absolute batting treat today and Bangladesh bowlers need someone to tap them on the shoulder and say, 'Rohit does this to most bowlers, so move on'. The series though will be moving to the City of Oranges - Nagpur - for the third and final T20I on Sunday. It's 1-1 and both teams have everything to play for. Do remember to tune in for that. Until next time, this is Raju Peethala bidding goodbye on behalf of Vineet Anantharaman, Varun Dixit, Sriram As, Hariprasad Sadanandan and the scoring duo of Praveen and Mukesh. Rohit Sharma, winning captain and Man of the Match: Both the spinners are very smart and they understand their bowling really well. They always have conversations with coach and the captain as how to improve. They played a lot of domestic cricket and Sundar has been our new ball bowler and today I wanted to change it considering how big the ground is. Quite an emotional guy on the field and some of the decisions we made in the last game, we were pretty sloppy but the focus is to get the job done and those are the emotions that come out. Always know this is a good track to bat on and with dew coming in it will be difficult for the bowlers to grip the ball and we took maximum advantage of that. I never underestimate the opposition, particularly the bowlers... all these years I have only tried to do my best when I have the bat in my hand. I knew the conditions were perfect and there was no turn on offer, all I wanted to do was remain stationed and tonk the ball. We want to finish well and there is a whole West Indies series coming up and not to forget the two Test matches as well. Mahmudullah, Bangladesh skipper: I think that was a very good wicket to bat on and 180 would have been defendable. They (Rohit and Shikhar) started superbly and got the momentum. On a wicket like this, wrist spinner is a very handy bowler to have in your side and Chahal showed that. He (Aminul) is a great find for Bangladesh and its amazing to see the efforts he put in, hopefully he will continue like this. If we get a good wicket in Nagpur, we will look to plan better and score as much as we can. Yuzvendra Chahal: When I bowled my first ball I realised that it is spinning and you then have to decide which ones to bowl fast and which to bowl slow. When I wasn't a part of the Indian team, I practised to bowl with the wet ball. We are used to playing with dew anyway in India. The missed stumping happens, even I have dropped many catches. It's just hard luck. I always try and see whether the batsman is picking my googly or not and look to bowl on middle or leg accordingly. When you are bowling in the death or in powerplays, it gives you the confidence.  22:22 local: Cyclone Maha was perhaps the major talking point before the start of the game, and thankfully, it stayed away to allow us a full game of cricket. After Bangladesh posted a modest score, cyclone Rohit hit the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot and went absolutely mental during his 43-ball stay at the crease. The Indian skipper belted six fours and six sixes to kill the chase inside 10 overs and unfortunately, the vistors had no answers. They were put under the pump from the word go and never recovered. Dhawan had the best seat in the house, and all he needed to do was play the second fiddle - which he did to absolute perfection handing over the strike to Rohit more often than not. The young legspinner Aminul Islam impressed yet again and nipped out both the openers in his successive overs. If not for that, this game could have well gotten over inside 14 overs. Presentations imminent, stick around... 15.4 Mustafizur to Shreyas Iyer, 1 run, slower short ball and Iyer manages an under edge on the pull down to third man. A resounding victory for India and they win by 8 wickets to square the series 1-1 with a game to go. 15.3 Mustafizur to Rahul, 1 run, low full toss on leg-stump and its been crisply flicked backwards of square leg. Scores level 15.2 Mustafizur to Rahul, no run, full toss again and this time its much lower and at the stumps, Rahul checks his drive to mid-off 15.1 Mustafizur to Shreyas Iyer, 1 run, hip-high full toss on leg-stump, helped away square on the leg-side for an easy single 14.6 Al-Amin to Shreyas Iyer, 1 run, slower short of length delivery on middle, nurdled into the mid-wicket pocket and Iyer will retain strike 14.5 Al-Amin to Shreyas Iyer, FOUR , has he been batting in the nets before he walked out to bat? Such a sweet timer of the cricket ball is Shreyas Iyer, just sights the length early and punches the back of a length delivery elegantly through extra cover. Save your legs... Al-Amin loses his run-up and pulls out at the last minute. Reload please... 14.4 Al-Amin to Shreyas Iyer, 2 runs, fullish and curving into middle and leg, clipped away to the right of deep square and the duo show great urgency to complete the second with ease 14.3 Al-Amin to Shreyas Iyer, no run, length delivery on off-stump, Iyer stays back and taps it gently towards backward point 14.2 Al-Amin to Shreyas Iyer, FOUR , a gimme on the pads and Shreyas Iyer says thank you before glancing it graciously past the keeper to his left. Too easy... 14.1 Al-Amin to Rahul, 1 run, wobbly-seam good length delivery on off, Rahul sits back and punches it crisply past the non-striker, down to long-on for an easy single Al-Amin Hossain [3.0-0-20-0] is back into the attack 13.6 Mustafizur to Rahul, 1 run, another slower short ball outside off and Rahul makes a last minute decision to steer it fine of third man. India just 15 away... 13.5 Mustafizur to Shreyas Iyer, 1 run, digs it short and keeps it just outside off, Iyer tucks it off the splice into the mid-wicket pocket 13.4 Mustafizur to Shreyas Iyer, no run, good length on middle and leg, nudged with soft hands into the leg-side Next
