The hosts need to win to keep the three-match series alive after going down in the opening game in New Delhi by seven wickets.

When asked about this on the eve of Rajkot T20I, Rohit Sharma said, "This is the format where we are trying a lot of players". "We have a great opportunity to go in for another victory". I never underestimate the opposition, particularly the bowlers. all these years I have only tried to do my best when I have the bat in my hand.

"I knew the conditions were ideal and there was no turn on offer, all I wanted to do was remain stationed and tonk the ball", Rohit added. "Because this is the format where these individuals can come out and express themselves so that they are ready for ODI and Test cricket".

Sharma finally became leg-spinner Aminul Islam's second victim after being caught at deep mid-wicket.

Shreyas Iyer, on 24, and KL Rahul, on eight, were at the crease as India won with 26 balls to spare. Mahmudullah thinks Rajkot is a 170-plus wicket for the side batting first. However, Bangladesh were lucky enough as Rishabh Pant's stumping of Liton Das was ruled Not Out by the TV umpire.
