Rohit Sharma didn't watch Karthik's last-ball six, here's why

Dinesh Karthik

After a lot of drama and some entertaining cricket, which got lost amidst a series of controversies in the previous game, Bangladesh have booked a spot in the final and have an opportunity to win the trophy where they didn't get off to the best of starts.

The Nidahas Trophy 2018 came to a fitting end with the pre-tournament favorites team India lifting the title.

While India still go into the final as the favourites, having won three of the four games that they've played so far, one can not ignore the claim made by Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hasan about the momentum being on their side with their memorable two-wicket win over Sri Lanka on Friday.

Not just Shakib called his players off the field, even the substitute fielders of Bangladesh were seen in a verbal fight with Sri Lankan captain Thisara Perera.

Will India close out the series or could Bangladesh snare an upset win? The T20I will be played at the iconic R. Premadasa Stadium, in Colombo. Thus, Sri Lankans too supported the Indian team this time. The toss will take place at 6:30 PM IST. "I thought we played superbly, anybody could have won the game, but India held their nerves well", he said.

What time will live coverage of the final between India and Bangladesh start? Due to the behaviour of Shakib, he was fined, therefore, in the game they maintained the decorum and played really well. However, Bangladesh are up against a side they have never beaten in the game's shortest format. Tamim Iqbal at the top was crucial against Sri Lanka, and will be so against India as well, especially if Das falters.

2 militants killed in Khunmoh gunfight
The gunfight had raged last evening after militants tried to snatch weapons from the security guards of a BJP leader. The PSO identified as Bilal Ahmad suffered injuries in the incident.

Brief scores: Bangladesh 166/8 in 20 overs (Sabbir Rahman 77, Yuzvendra Chahal 3/18, Jaydev Unadkat 2/33) against India: 168/6 ( Rohit Sharma 52, Dinesh Karthik 29, Rubel Hossain 2/35).

When queried whether he had witnessed anything about the Bangladeshi brand of cricket, Rohit said: "I won't say they are not good enough [in T20s]". Final at 19.1 overs, the whole team of Bangladesh was at a mere score of 150.

Bangladesh earlier posted 166 runs for the loss of eight wickets and India came down to reach 168 runs by losing six wickets. With both of India's openers now performing, and their middle order having found their rhythm, this is not a side one wants to set a target for. Rohit Sharma, India skipper, believes that the wicket will get better as the game progresses.

Pandey managed only six runs off his first 13 balls, and the pressure resulted in Rohit slogging Nazmul Islam to long-on, leaving India 69 to get in 40 balls.

Coming in the second last over with scoreboard reading 133/5, Karthik announced his arrival at the crease through two sixes and a four in first three balls which narrowed the gap between remaining balls and required runs.
