Deepak Chahar took six wickets for seven runs as India beat Bangladesh by 30 runs in their third and final T20 match to win the closely fought series 2-1 on Sunday.
Chasing a winning target of 175, Bangladesh was bowled out for 144 in 19.2 overs as India rallied after losing the opener.
Medium-fast bowler Chahar needed only 3.2 overs to destroy Bangladesh, including the last three wickets. Bangladesh opener Mohammad Naim smashed 81 off 48 balls with 10 fours and two sixes before he was bowled by Shivam Dube (3-30).
Earlier, Shreyas Iyer and KL Rahul scored attacking half-centuries after India was put in to bat and reached 174-5.
Iyer scored a career-best 62 runs off 33 balls — with three fours and five sixes — while Rahul made 52 off 35 balls as they rescued India's innings after a double blow early on.
Put into bat, India had made a poor start with big-hitting Rohit Sharma (2) and Shikhar Dhawan (19) falling cheaply.
Bangladesh won the opener by seven wickets, its first-ever win over India in the T20 format. India won the second T20 by eight wickets to level the series.
Here is how twitter reacted after Chahar picked up best bowling figures in T20Is:

Best ever figures in T20I cricket for Chahar
Evolving as a T20I bowler is Chahar
Very impressed with the way @deepak_chahar9 has evolved as a T20I bowler. Always had the ability to pick up wickets with the new ball but has worked hard to bowl in the middle and end overs. Got a lot of variations up his sleeves & knows when to use them. #INDvsBAN

India captain Virat Kohli stated that "confusion and lack of clarity" has led to the team management playing a "waiting game" on Rohit Sharma's availability which is not ideal
Known for his classical batting, Rahul said that even if he has to score at a high strike-rate of 160 to 170, he can do it minus the blitzkrieg.
For skipper Virat Kohli, the key will be to get the combination right in the 50-over games which begin on 27 November.
