In the end, it happened all too comfortably for India. Despite a stuttered start, India coasted rather easily to the 153-run target, paved way by a half-century partnership between Dinesh Karthik and Manish Pandey. The visitors won by six wickets to move to the top of the points table. After the openers departed, there was hardly any struggle for the batsmen. On a good wicket with a modest total to chase down, India didn’t panic and made good use of the conditions on offer.: India beat Bangladesh by six wickets
