India captain Rohit Sharma smashed a 43-ball 85 against Bangladesh in Rajkot during the second T20I on Thursday.

Rohit completed his 18th T20I fifty off just 23 balls, which was also his second fastest in the shortest format. His innings was laced with six sixes and six boundaries. Playing his 100th T20I international, he had a dream game as he looked unstoppable in a 154-run chase.

Rohit and Shikhar Dhawan added a 118 run partnership for the opening wicket, and the Men in Blue completed the chase in 154.4 overs at the loss of 2 wickets.

Earlier in the day, Indian bowlers kept it tight in the final few overs to keep Bangladesh in check as they posted 153/6 in their full quota of 20 overs.

Wrist spinner Yuzvendra Chahal was the pick of the bowlers for India with figures of 2/28.
