Rohit is the Man of the Match: It's important for me to start afresh and not look back too much. This is a perfect platform for us before the World Cup.
India open the Asia Cup with a convincing win against the hosts. At one point India were in trouble with early wickets down and the Bangladeshi bowlers not giving many runs. But Rohit's 83 charged them well past 150 and some sizzling swing bowling from Nehra, along with Bumrah, made sure Bangladesh never recovered from their early losses. A lot of feedback coming in that Shakib's drop of Rohit at the score of 21 cost them the match.
Mortaza: Last 15 years I've seen that fans always support us. We were in the game till the 14th over but after that Rohit took the game away from us. We bowled a lot of slower ones later and the ball was not gripping.
