All I wanted to do was remain stationed and tonk the ball,” says Rohit Sharma

Stand-in-captain Rohit Sharma, who is playing in his 100th T20I bullied the Bangladesh bowlers as he thwacked six fours and six sixes in his 43-ball 85 and made India to win the match by 8 wickets. 

Sharma was awarded the Man of the Match. At the post-match conference Sharma said, “Always know this is a good track to bat on and with dew coming in it will be difficult for the bowlers to grip the ball and we took maximum advantage of that. 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 perfect and there was no turn on offer, all I wanted to do was remain stationed and tonk the ball. We want to finish well and there is a whole West Indies series coming up and not to forget the two Test matches as well.”
