"With the bat, Mushfiqur made 72 out of 160-odd".

Despite losing his partners at the other end, Rahim, who came in at No.4 started well, occasionally dispatching the odd balls to the boundary until Sabbir Rahman (27) joined him to add 65 runs for the fifth wicket.

WICKET! Liton Das has been stumped by Dinesh Karthik as Washington Sundar celebrates his wicket. India's victory makes the last round robin match between Sri Lanka and Bangladesh a virtual semi-final.

Bangladesh won the toss and chose to bowl first. India have also made one change, Mohammad Siraj replacing Jaydev Unadkat. But finally India started well and Rohit and Shikhar put on their first 50-run stand of the series as even though Rohit was struggling to get a move on, Dhawan held fort and ensured that the run-rate was affected.
