6 6 6 : Rohit Sharma hits Hat-trick of Sixes : Video of Hitman Destroying Bangla Tigers

India vs Bangladesh, 2nd T20I (N), Rajkot, Nov 7 2019, Bangladesh tour of India

Match Result: India won by 8 wickets (with 26 balls remaining)

Player of the Match: Rohit Sharma [85(43)]

Match Report: A 43-ball 85 Blitz from Rohit Sharma, in his 100th T20I, helped India chase down 154 with 26 balls to spare and draw level in the T20I series against Bangladesh. India literally made a mockery of what was a competitive total. It was Rohit’s third-quickest innings of 50 or more in T20Is, and it made a below-par Bangladesh total – at the presentation, their captain Mahmudullah opined they finished 25-30 runs short – look utterly inadequate in great batting conditions in Rajkot.

India have been a bit of a two-sided T20I team of late. Since the start of 2018, they have a 7-7 record while batting first, but they have done much better while chasing: Thursday’s win was their 13th in 16 completed games.
 
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.”
 
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.”
 
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 confidence. 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.”
