India on Sunday defeated Bangladesh to win their first T20I series in this home series. The Men in Blue were off to a disastrous start after Shafiul Islam removed Rohit and Shikhar early but Shreyas Iyer and K L Rahul smashed sublime half-centuries to propel India to 174 for five.
The Men in Blue were also brilliant in the bowling department with Deepak Chahar taking six wickets in the match to dismiss Bangladesh for just 144 runs.
Meanwhile, stand-in skipper Rohit Sharma on Saturday strongly backed an under-fire Rishabh Pant, urging critics to "leave him alone" as he is only trying to execute the team management's strategy.
"You know there is a lot of talk happening about Rishabh Pant every day, every minute. I just feel that he needs to be allowed to do what he wants to do on the field. I would request everyone to keep their eyes away from Rishabh Pant for a while," Rohit said.
"He is a fearless cricketer and we (team management) want him to have that freedom. And if you guys take your eyes off him for sometime, it will allow him to perform even better," added Rohit.
