India clinched the Nidahas Trophy from the hands of Bangladesh in the last ball. Indian team saw the absence of its experienced players like Ms Dhoni and Virat Kohli, but the new comers managed the game really well. India also enjoys venue supremacy over the resilience Bangladeshi side ahead of the final.
Bangladesh's intent shows that they are eager to win this tournament and have not come here to make up the numbers which India will be well aware of, considering their consistent rise in the shortest format of the game. Thus, Sri Lankans too supported the Indian team this time. The toss will take place at 06:30 PM IST. India won the toss and the skipper and the present Captain of the Indian team chose to bowl first. Not to forget a crass advertisement "Mauka Mauka", which was aired before and during 2015 World Cup, something that Bangladeshi fans still consider as an insult.During the same year, India lost an ODI series in Bangladesh and there were some objectionable photo-shopped billboards of Indian players' with heads half-shaved, put out across the streets of Dhaka. Bangladesh was shaky at the start as they lost 3 early wickets in the form of Tamim Iqbal, Liton Das, and Soumya Sarkar. He almost had Tamim Iqbal LBW off the first over he bowled before getting rid of Liton Das caught next over. Just at a mere score of 27, Bangladesh already were 2 wickets down.
Rohit completed his 14th T20I fifty off 35 balls in the 12th over, but the runs nearly dried up as the skipper and Pandey managed just 15 runs in the next 3.5 overs. Final at 19.1 overs, the whole team of Bangladesh was at a mere score of 150.
Next came India's batting.
The Indian team looked in good touch, with opener and stand-in skipper Rohit Sharma scoring 56 off 42 deliveries. Although, Shikhar Dhawan was bowled off by Shakib ul Hasan.

Karthik's gem of a cameo got him 29 off 8 balls with two boundaries and three sixes - the last of them which will be forever be etched in the memory. Around the halfway stage when India wrested complete control over the chase with Rohit going all guns blazing, the crowd broke into the now (in) famous cobra dance.
The game then came at its tensed point. But little did they know that it is a boon which will result in India's win.
Karthik exploded immediately, hitting the first ball he faced for a six and plundering 22 runs off that over from Rubel Hossain to turn the match on its head. However, Bangladesh's pace spearhead Mustafizur Rahman had a different plan for the Men in Blue as he bowled a terrific 18th over, in which he conceded just a leg bye to the under-pressure rookie Vijay Shankar and sent back Manish Pandey off the last ball.
Dinesh entered the crease when there were 12balls and India needed 34runs to win.
It was Karthik's lovely last strike of 6 which made India win the game.
