That's all from our side from this game. See you soon.

Mushfiqur: We were playing in front of a huge crowd, so that feels special. Me and Soumya had a chat, we thought maybe we could drag the game deep. Luckily we had a big over but I think Soumya played his role really well. Naim too and as did the bowlers. I am doing my level best to improve as a cricketer, and hopefully do well for Bangladesh in each and every game.

Mushfiqur Rahim is the Man of the Match.

Mahmudullah: I think it was all based on how we start but the bowlers did a great job, everyone chipped one. I think captaincy was made easy because of the guys performing well. I think Mushy deserves the credit, especially he and Soumya. Naim too batted well on debut, giving us the start we needed.

Rohit Sharma: Not to take any credit away from Bangladesh. Those crucial breakthroughs when we were batting. It was a defendable total but we made mistakes on the field. I think it was a mistake from our side [missing out on the reviews] but these are the learnings. We posted a decent target but we were lacking on the field. I think we always wanted Chahal to get back into this format but we know how crucial he is to this team moving forward and he showed how important he can be in middle overs even when batsmen are set. He is so confident.

Time for the presentation ceremony.

Hardic: "Krunal drop catch cost India the match. "

Mausique23 : "Very well played Mushi..I was wishing you to get out initially because you were scoring very slow at the start but in th end It was Boom.."

Meanwhile, here are the best moments from 1000 T20Is. Includes Yuvraj's six sixes. Brathwaite's four as well. England being upset. England winning the Cup. Retro kits and bowl-out fun and plenty more. Go in and vote for your favourite memory.

Zubaier Mostafa: "@Santosh We don't have a strong B team. Keep that in mind."

Santosh Battula: "I appreciate their win. They truly deserved to win this match. But please don't highlight that they are playing without Tamim & Shakib. India too had played without Kohli, Bhuvi, Bumrah & Pandya. "

Soumya Sarkar: Everybody was cool and calm, we all were thinking positive. Tamim and Shakib are senior players, we dedicate this win to them.

10.25pm The first win for Bangladesh in nine T20Is against India. And they were without Tamim and Shakib. How big is that, Sreshth tells me that's their first T20I win without Tamim and Shakib in the side. And they now lead the three-match series 1-0. Mushfiqur starred with an unbeaten 60 off 43 after the Bangladesh bowlers restricted India to 148.
