India restrict Bangladesh to 139/8

The host also secured a five-wicket win against India in the opener of the seven-match Nidahas Trophy showing their level of confidence while Bangladesh started the tournament campaign conceding a six-wicket loss against India on Thursday. India made a decision to send in Rishabh Pant ahead of Suresh Raina to join Shikhar Dhawan at the crease.

India came into the match on a low as they lost to Sri Lanka in the opening game of the Nidahas Trophy.

Opting to bowl first, India got an early breakthrough as Jaydev Unadkat took out Bangladesh opener Soumya Sarkar for 14.

Captain Rohit once again chose to go with off-spinner MS Washington Sundar (0/23 in 4 overs) for the opening spell and the move proved to be an excellent one as the normally unsafe Tamim Iqbal (15, 16 balls) found it hard to free his arm in the Powerplay overs.

The Sunrisers Hyderabad batsman is leading India's batting in the tournament after backing up his 90 in the first match with a knock of 55 in the second match. Tamim Iqbal played an ambitious pull to Shardul Thakur and only managed to sky the ball to deep fine-leg.

Chasing a modest target of 140, skipper Rohit Sharma (17) yet again failed to score big, continuing his lean patch since the South African series. Rishab Pant, promoted to No. 3, had the ideal opportunity to score runs given the absence of scoreboard pressure, but he fluffed his lines, lasting just eight balls before an over-ambitious heave sent the ball into the stumps via the inside edge.

Manish Pandey (27*) would be left to finish matters off when Dhawan nicked off to Taskin Ahmed with victory in sight. We should have scored 30 more runs. We looked into what went wrong against Sri Lanka and we thought hitting back of a length was a good option.

After the match, the Indian captain was rightfully elated with his team's performance and said, "It was a great performance, something that was expected from us". Bowlers executed plans very well. I think we are just a win away from getting a boost. "We kept it simple and got the basics right, which was missing in the first game", Rohit said. "I think we need a game in which we can do everything right to gain the confidence and we are waiting for that momentum and if we get that you will see a different Bangladesh team".
