22:43 (IST)

And that brings us to the conclusion of the 2nd T20I between India and Bangladesh at Rajkot, and boy what a dazzling display of fireworks that turned out to be from Rohit Sharma, who unfortunately fell 15 short of what would've been a perfect way to celebrate a 100 T20I appearances. The series, currently locked at 1-1, heads to Nagpur for the decider, taking place three days from now. For now, it's time for us to bid you all good night!

22:41 (IST)

Rohit Sharma is the Player of the Match for his blistering 85 off 43! 

Rohit: Both of those guys (Chahal and Sundar) are pretty smart and understand they're bowling really well. More importantly, they analyse and always have a conversation with the bowling coach on where they can improve. Chahal has managed to get the team on top bowling in difficult conditions. Washi has been our new ball bowler, but today I wanted to change that and gave him only one over. I'm quite an emotional guy on the field. Some of the decisions in the previous and some of the on-field moments today, we were a bit sloppy. Ultimately aim is to get the job done, and sometimes we display a lot of emotions. Next time I'll check where the camera is (laughs). We knew with the dew coming in, it will be slightly difficult for the bowlers. We had a good powerplay, and just carried on from that start. I knew the conditions were perfect. All I wanted to do was stay still and tonk the ball. It's been very good so far, and just wanted to finish it off on a good note. Looking forward to that. 

22:35 (IST)

Mahmudullah, Bangladesh captain: I think it was very good wicket to bat on We were 25-30 runs short, 180 have been defendable. They started superbly and got the momentum. Credit to Rohit and Shikhar,especially the way they started. Wrist-spinner is always a good option. On a wicket like this, wrist spinner is a very handy bowler to have in your side and Chahal showed that. Aminul is a great find for us, the way he's been putting effort. Hopefully he will continue. We need to assess the conditions when we go to Nagpur. We needed to be a bit more positive.

22:26 (IST)

Yuzvendra Chahal chats with Harsha Bhogle at the end of the match. 

"We always speculate the dew, and know where to bowl (in such conditions). (On Pant's folly behind the stumps) It happens. We are team players. Sometimes I drop catches as well. So you can say hard luck. (Bowling plan) I always plan what the batsman might do, whether he is picking my googlies or not. When you're bowling in the death overs or in the powerplay, that gives you confidence," says the leg-spinner from Haryana. 

22:25 (IST)

An eight wicket win to level the series. Much to do with Rohit Sharma's blitz. There can be further improvements in fielding and bowling too, but for India will be happy to have levelled this series. Bangladesh will see this as an opportunity wasted but they have another chance to regroup in Nagpur on Sunday. For now, it was Rohit's night and his knock helped the Men in Blue forget their experimental problems.

After 15 overs,India 151/2 ( KL Rahul 7 , Shreyas Iyer 22)

Change of ends for Al Amin. Iyer glances the ball past the keeper to collect his second four, and bring India closer to the finish line. Displays some fine running between the sticks to collect a brace off the fourth ball. Another boundary to Iyer, this time off a solidly-timed punch through cover off the penultimate delivery, followed by a single for the Mumbaikar to keep the strike. 12 off the over. India need another three to win with five overs left.

India vs Bangladesh, LIVE Cricket Score, 2nd T20I at Rajkot Latest Updates: India win by 8 wickets with 26 balls to spare to level the three-match T20I series 1-1! Iyer and Rahul deal in singles in Mustafizur's final over to get India home comfortably at Rajkot. The match now heads to a decider at Nagpur on the 10th of this month!

 India vs Bangladesh 2nd T20I at Rajkot Preview: With their frailties in the shortest format under the scanner, India would be aiming to ensure that a plucky Bangladesh don't run away with the momentum when the two sides clash in the second T20I, which is facing a cyclonic threat, on Thursday.

India lost the smog-hit opening T20I in Delhi by seven wickets on Sunday, a disappointing result against a side that landed here after a players' strike and the suspension of their star cricketer — Shakib Al Hasan — for failure to report corrupt approaches.

India have not had the kind of success in T20Is they have enjoyed in the other two formats of late and that is evident from the results this year. They have already lost a series at home to Australia this year, before drawing against South Africa who were otherwise hammered in Tests.

In the absence of some senior players, including regular skipper Virat Kohli, the second game of the three-match series is an ideal platform for the fringe players to showcase their mettle.

All this will depend on how much of an impact Cyclone Maha, which is expected to hit Gujarat on match day, has on the weather in the city. Rohit, who had a rare failure on Sunday, would be keen to lead by example.

Dhawan made 41 off 42 balls raising questions on his strike-rate and form. The great Sunil Gavaskar said more questions will be raised if Dhawan doesn't get a fluent knock in the remaining two games.

Another batsman who will be under pressure is KL Rahul, trying to cement his place in the T20 playing 11 after losing his spot in the Test squad. A lot was expected from India's young brigade on Sunday but barring Shreyas Iyer, no one took the opposition attack by the scruff of its neck in Delhi.

The likes of Rishabh Pant, Krunal Pandya and all-rounder Shivam Dube, who did not have a great start to his career, will have to justify their selection and deliver when the situation demands. It would be interesting to see whether the team management brings in Kerala wicket-keeper batsman Sanju Samson.
