You can't ask for a better finish can you? A team without the likes of Dhoni, Kohli, Bumrah, Bhuvi has clinched the Nidahas Trophy in the most dramatic manner you can ever imagine. Dinesh Karthik is rightly the man of the moment and deserves all the praise. Along with that, Washington Sundar also deserves a lot of credit for consistently delivering those frugal overs in the Powerplay. He has to be the biggest takeaway of the series. A disappointing end for Bangladesh but they can hold their heads high. They were in the match till the last ball and put India under pressure. All in all, the tournament featured a lot of close matches (and some off-field drama too). 

That's all we have for you today though. This is Devdutt Kshirsagar signing off on the behalf of my colleague Amit Banerjee. Goodbye!

Rohit Sharma, India captain: Brilliant game, brilliatn for the crowd too. Want to thank the Sri Lankan crowd for coming out and supporting us. Great tournament for us. Young bunch of lads - lot of learning, we always knew that they had the talent but it was about execution and they will get confidence from this tournament. These games are high-pressure games and it isn't easy. Quite easy to lead them, played with most of them. Very happy for Dinesh Karthik. I wanted one of the experienced campaigners to stay at the end  and that's why I held DK back. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. 

23:09 (IST)

Bangladesh captain, Shakib Al Hasan: You can't ask more in a final like this. I thought we played superbly but the credit goes to India specially Dinesh Karthik. We can take a lot of positives from this game and someday we can come out victorious. 

23:07 (IST)

Washington Sundar, Man of the Series: Definitely it means a lot. At such a young age it means so much. I really need to thank my family. Definitely goes for them. It's a challenging role, but when you're playing for your country, you should be ready for challenges. I think I always wanted to read batsmen's mind, and that's what I've been trying to do these five games. (On being nervous about walking out to bat) Definitely. I really wanted to be there when we win the game. Dinesh bhai played really well! 

23:06 (IST)

Bangladesh captain, Shakib Al Hasan: You can't ask more in a final like this. I thought we played superbly but the credit goes to India specially Dinesh Karthik. We can take a lot of positives from this game and someday we can come out victorious.

Washington Sundar is the Man of the Series! Eight wickets at 14.25!

23:02 (IST)

Dinesh Karthik, Man of the Match: Really happy to come out of this performance. Really happy for the team. Not winning the final wouldn't have  done justice to the way we have played this tournament. Realised it wasn't that easy to bat. All I needed to go for were boundaries. I was just trying to hit the ball. Was trying to hold the pace and swing through the line. The Indian team right now is a tough place to get an opportunity, but once you get it, you've got to make the most of it. Full credit to the support staff for giving me the confidence.

India pull off a thriller and win the Nidahas Trophy 2018!

Preview: Fresh from a thrilling win in their last league game against hosts Sri Lanka, Bangladesh will have their tails up as they prepare to take on a confident India in the final of the Nidahas Trophy T20 tri-series at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo on Sunday.

In what was a virtual semi-final against the Islanders on Friday, Bangladesh pulled off a brilliant two-wicket win from the jaws of defeat in the final over, which was marred by ugly scenes following the on-field umpires' failure to call the second delivery of the over a no-ball for height.

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.

Going into Sunday's final, India with a second-string team minus regular captain Virat Kohli and veteran Mahendra Singh Dhoni, will hope their skipper Rohit Sharma will lead from the front and replicate his form in their previous encounter against the same opposition on Wednesday.

Rohit struck a brilliant 61-ball 89, his 13th T20 half century and was well supported by veteran left-hander Suresh Raina (47) as India edged past the Bangladeshis by 17 runs to seal their spot in the final.

Rohit's opening partner Shikhar Dhawan has also been amongst the runs during the tournament even as the men-in-blue would hope for some fireworks from the likes of Lokesh Rahul and the middle order comprising Dinesh Karthik and Manish Pandey.

Among the bowlers, teenaged off-spinner Washington Sundar has been the find of the tournament with his exploits in the powerplay overs, while leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal has supported him well.

If India are to restrict the Bangladeshis, the rookie pace department, comprising Mohammed Siraj, Shardul Thakur and all-rounder Vijay Shankar will need to complement the spin duo.

On the other hand, bolstered by the return of regular skipper Shakib Al Hasan, Bangladesh will definitely go all out in the summit clash.

Their top order comprising Tamim Iqbal, Mushfiqur Rahim, Soumya Sarkar and Mahmudullah have been amongst the runs while Liton Das seems the only weak link at the top.

The Bangladeshis will also be wary of Washington Sundar, who ripped through the top order in the previous tie.

Bangladesh's bowling department led by Mustafizur Rahman and Rubel Hossain have troubled the Indians more often than not and will aim to replicate that in the final. Left-spinner Shakib's inclusion has only added more spice to the contest.

Squads:
India: Rohit Sharma (Captain), Shikhar Dhawan (vice-captain), Lokesh Rahul, Suresh Raina, Manish Pandey, Dinesh Karthik (wicket-keeper), Deepak Hooda, Washington Sundar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Axar Patel, Vijay Shankar, Shardul Thakur, Jaydev Unadkat, Mohammad Siraj and Rishabh Pant.

Bangladesh: Shakib Al Hasan (Captain), Mahmudullah, Tamim Iqbal, Soumya Sarkar, Imrul Kayes, Mushfiqur Rahim (wicket-keeper), Sabbir Rahman, Mustafizur Rahman, Rubel Hossain, Taskin Ahmed, Abu Hider, Abu Jayed, Ariful Haque, Nazmul Islam, Nurul Hasan, Mehidy Hasan, Liton Das.
