"Rohit is a great talent, he can score runs any time he wants," Akhtar added.

India defeated Bangladesh by 30 runs on Sunday to win the three-match series 2-1. Chasing 175 for the win, Bangladesh was bundled out for 144.

"I thought third T20I will be exciting to watch. However, India came out as a much better side but hats off to Bangladesh for their spirited performance," said Akhtar.

Bangladesh defeated India for the first time in T20I on 3 November.

"Bangladesh is no ordinary side, we all must remember that the Tigers are not going to choke in front of any team," Akhtar said.

Deepak Chahar recorded the best bowling figures in a T20I match and he also became the first Indian male cricketer to take a hat-trick in the shortest format of the game.

"He is a mix of medium pace and seam and he displayed a commendable performance by taking a hat-trick in the game," said Akhtar

India and Bangladesh now take on each other in a two-match Test series. The first match will be played from 14-18 November.
