Rohit Sharma has been on a roll in recent times; and if his Man-of-the-Match-winning effort against the visitors in the second T20I in Rajkot wasn't enough, former India opener Virender Sehwag has said that Rohit's scoring rate is unmatched and even regular skipper Virat Kohli can't show such consistency when it comes to scoring at the pace at which Rohit scores.

"You don't need just big muscles or power to hit sixes", Rohit explained to Chahal.

Pacer Shafiul Islam was given the charge and hit over long-on for a six and slog sweep off spinner Afif Hossain brought up his 18th half-century in this format. But the Tigers' happiness was short-lived as Rohit Sharma led India to a stunning series-levelling win in the second T20I. It's been very good so far and just wanted to finish it off on a good note.

Speaking about his knock after the game in the post-match presentation, Rohit said that with so much of dew coming in, his main focus was to stay back in the crease and tonk the ball.

"I knew that Rajkot is a good track, knew (it) will be hard for bowlers in the second innings", said Sharma, who is leading the side in the absence of the rested Virat Kohli. "So yes, I'm quite looking forward to that, not to forget the two Test matches [against Bangladesh]".

"We took advantage of that, had a great powerplay. Momentum went their way", said Mahmudullah.

The win was set up by the bowlers, especially spinners Chahal and Washington Sundar, who returned a combined 8-0-53-3 to tie Bangladesh down to only 153 in batting-friendly conditions in Rajkot. "Because this is the format where these individuals can come out and express themselves so that they are ready for ODI and Test cricket". More importantly, they analyse, and they always have conversations with the bowling coach and the captain as to where they can improve. Maybe we might change our game plan or approach according to situation and conditions. And same with Washy as well.

"We want to try a lot of players to make them ready for the other formats", Sharma told a press conference at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot.
