Commentary

END OF OVER:
46 | 12 Runs | INDIA: 251/5

  • MS Dhoni91 (106b)
  • KD Karthik58 (60b)
  • Syed Rasel9-0-66-2
  • Abdur Razzak9-1-35-0

Powered by a calm 107-run partnership between Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Dinesh Karthik, who tackled the spinners well, India won by five wickets.

When five wickets were down, the advantage lay with Bangladesh. The spinners were operating, the wicket had got slower. The odds were stacked against India but Dhoni, hobbling with hamstring injury and running with a bye-runner, and Karthik took control. Karthik swept while Dhoni punched his way and slowly the tables turned. Bashar ran out of ideas, the spinners, seemingly, lost the bite as the duo milked them.

The players from both teams shake hands, Robin Singh is also there. So is Ravi Shastri. India lead the three-match series 1- 0.

Man-of-the-Match: Mahendra Singh Dhoni

Syed Rasel to Dhoni, 1 run, India have won. By 5 wickets. Fullish, on the middle stump line, Dhoni leans forward and heaves it over midwicket. Camera pans to dressing room. Shastri and Vengsarkar shake hands. The other players are seen clapping.

Everybody in the Indian dressing room are up on their feet. Vengsarkar is also seen there.

Syed Rasel to Karthik, FOUR runs, Easy. Fifty up in style. Very valuable knock. Low full-toss, on the stumps and he knifes through the line. Yuvraj, the bye runner for Dhoni, congratulates him. Then Dhoni hobbles over and hugs Karthik.
