Shakib puts ugly T20 behind to focus on India final

Shakib puts ugly T20 behind to focus on India final

Shakib Al Hasan and Nurul Hasan have been fined 25 per cent of their match fees and given one demerit point following unruly scenes in a dramatic climax to Bangladesh's Nidahas Trophy win over Sri Lanka.

Rohit's opening partner Shikhar Dhawan has also been amongst the runs during the tournament even as the men-in-blue would hope for some fireworks from the likes of Lokesh Rahul and the middle order comprising Dinesh Karthik and Manish Pandey.

Willow TV and Sky Sports will broadcast the grand final in the U.S. and United Kingdom respectively.

"Regrettable and unacceptable" is how Sri Lanka Cricket chief Thilanga Sumathipala has described the behaviour of the Bangladeshi team during their crucial match against the hosts on Friday night.

Rohit struck a brilliant 61-ball 89, his 13th T20 half-century and was well supported by veteran left-hander Suresh Raina (47) as India edged past the Bangladeshis by 17 runs to seal their spot in the final. He has smashed Nazmul Islam for a six and four.

The championship showdown will live stream from Sri Lanka, as the Tigers hope to change their fortunes against their regional rivals after India took the victory in all previous T20 Internationals between the two subcontinental neighbors.

Hence, the Indians can not take anything for granted, despite their 7-0 record against Bangladesh in the T20Is. Mehidy Hasan provided a final fillip, scoring 18 off the last over, bowled by Thakur. The openers had been watchful in Sundar's first over, but the moment one attacked him a wicket resulted - Liton Das caught at square leg after having attempted a slog sweep. Don't' forget, there are people like Tamim Iqbal, Mushfiqur Rahim and Shakib in the opposition line-up, who are around at the global arena for more than a decade now. Yuzvendra Chahal, 10. Jaydev Unadkat, 11. The pair added 35 runs for the fourth wicket. Rahman targeted all-rounder Shankar to increase the scoring rate as he hit a six and a four in consecutive balls to take the team over 50-mark.

Sabbir was involved in rebuilding work with the seniors, putting on 35 in Mushifqur Rahim's company, then 36 in Mahmudullah's. "See the thing is in wickets, if it goes straight then it's a flat wicket, if it only turns then that's also fine but the tricky wicket is when the odd ball turns and the odd ball goes straight, so it's always a little bit harder".

Just before the start of this tri-series, the channel Rishtey Cineplex which broadcasts Hindi movies was trolled on Twitter for showing cricket matches live.

WICKET! Mahmudullah has been run-out for 21 runs as India get their fifth wicket.
