10:53pm That's all we have for you tonight. We'll see you soon. Good night!

Rohit Sharma: It was a great performance - something that was expected from us. Till the last ball of the game was bowled, it was clinical. We looked into what went wrong against Sri Lanka and we thought hitting back of a length was a good option. We wanted them to go after the long boundaries. I thought the bowlers executed their plans really well. Came out and did what was asked. We kept it simple. We need to improve out catching. We want to get better as a fielding side every game we play. We are much better than that. Hopefully we won't make the same mistakes again.

Mahmudullah: It's obvious that we didn't bat well. We should've scored a lot more runs, probably 30 more runs. They executed their plans very well but we should have found ways to make more runs. We need to rotate the strike more often. The dot balls created a lot of pressure. I think we are just one win away from getting a boost. We're still searching for it and I think we'll get it.

Vijay Shankar: I've been looking forward to this. Been working very hard and really happy to be winning this. I've been working hard on my bowling over the last few years and bowling is something that has given me something extra in my game. Playing with this team is a dream and everyone in the dressing room is very supportive.

Vijay Shankar is the Man of the Match.

10:33pm India's first win of the tournament. Completed sedately with six wickets in hand. Bangladesh didn't have a single phase in this game where they appeared to be in control. India made easy work of it in the end, despite some sloppiness when they were in the field. Yet another fifty for Dhawan, who'll be disappointed he didn't see it through. A steady contribution from Raina as well before Pandey did his job and finished the chase.
