India 154/2(15.4 overs)

10.40pm That's all from us tonight. See you this weekend for the decider on Nov 10. Till then, on behalf of Hemant and Chandan, this is Sreshth saying goodbye

10.33pm Time for the presentation.

Rohit Sharma, winning captain and MoM: "Both Washington and Chahal understand their bowling really well. More importantly, they analyse and have conversations on where they can improve. Chahal has bowled in difficult situations and has somehow brought the team to the top. It's given him comfidence. Washington has been our new-ball bowler, but today, I wanted to keep his three overs at the back. I'm an emotional guy. We were sloppy in the field, have to accept that. But focus is always on getting the job done. I knew that Rajkot is a good track, knew will be difficult for bowlers in the second innings. We took advantage of that, had a great powerplay. After that, it was all about going on. I never underestimate bowlers. All these years, I've just tried to do my best with the bat in hand. Knew conditions were perfect, so all I wanted to do was stay still and "tonk" the ball. The year 2019 has been very good so far. Just want to finish it off on a good note."

Mahmudullah, losing captain: "Was a very good wicket, but we were 25-30 runs short. Having said that, credit to Rohit and Shikhar, how they started. Momentum went their way. Wicket like this, wristspinner was very handy and Chahal showed that. Aminul is a great find for us, the way he's been putting effort. Hopefully he will continue. We need to assess the conditions when we go to Nagpur. We needed to be a bit more positive."

Some breaking news in the ongoing Davis Cup saga involving India and Pakistan. The AITA has now saidthat all players - even those who were hesitant to travel to Islamabad - will now be considered for selections since the tie will be held at a neutral venue

Yuzvendra Chahal: "When I bowled my first ball, I realised that it's spinning. You have to vary your pace here. When I was not part of the India team, I was practicing with the wet ball, so dew didn't affect me. Knew where to ball. We are team players, even I drop catches sometimes, so no one wants to miss a catch or stumping, so no hard feelings with Pant. Just hard luck. My bowling depends on what I think the batsman is trying to do. Depending on that I bowl the topspinner, googly or slider. Bowling in the death or powerplay gives you more confidence."

10.20pm The fireworks go off in Rajkot as the Indian dugout celebrate the win. They win by eight wickets to level the series 1-1. Rohit Sharma was simply amazing in the chase, not giving the fielding side a single look-in as he systematically dismantled the new-ball bowlers. Reached his fifty in 23 balls before being dismissed for 85. His innings of six fours and six sixes broke Bangladesh's back after they posted a below-par total on an outstanding batting surface. The Bangladesh boys congratulate Rohit too as the teams shake hands. Stick around for the presentation.

Pratik Rajkumar: "100 in his 100th T20 Match would have been perfect!! Well played though!"

Rupesh: "Interesting how things has changed people earlier compared kohli to sachin. Now because kohli is not playing they are comparing rohit to sachin. So sachin is never out of the game. "

vivek j: "Very impressed with Shreyas Iyer.. He faced only few balls but looks very good.. He should be persisted at number 4 in both ODI and twenty twenty.. "
