Shikhar Dhawan once again did the bulk of the scoring as India beat Bangladesh by six wickets in their second T20I of the Nidahas Trophy at http://www.officialnhlhockeyonline.com/DALLAS_STARS-c-1087_1180.html the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo on Thursday.Dhawan (55) was yet again on song (much like the Phillip Gaines Youth jersey opener) and with some support http://www.packershopnfl.com/WOMENS_YOUTH_KENNY_CLARK_JERSEY.html from Raina (28) and Manish Pandey, India chased down the target of Dan Feeney Jersey 140 runs in 18.4 overs.
Despite early departures of Rohit Sharma (17) and Rishabh Pant (7), Dhawan did not curb his aggression and played his shots freely and enabled India to comfortably complete the chase.
Set the target of 140, India lost the wicket of captain Rohit Sharma (17) in just Shaquille O'Neal Youth jersey 3.3 overs, who was soon followed by Rishabh Pant (7). Rohit's lean patch continued as once again he failed to make the best of his fine start and Mustafizur sent him packing with a darting delivery.
While Dhawan held one end, Pant was promoted to No.3. However, failed to utilise the opportunity and fell to a similar delivery as his captain, only the bowler this time was Rubel Hossain.Despite Rohit and Pant falling in quick succession, Dhawan kept playing his shots even as he tried to keep it grounded and take the chase on steadily.
He was given good support from the other end by Raina but the Uttar Pradesh batsman failed to convert his beginning into a big score.
Dhawan eventually fell in the 17th over at 55 but by then, he had put India well in control of the match.
