After Bangladesh's training session at the R Premadasa Stadium - something they made the most of, having previously practiced at the P Saravanamuttu Stadium, as India were playing Sri Lanka at the tournament venue - Mahmudullah exuded a quiet confidence.

India: Rohit Sharma (capt), Shikhar Dhawan (vice-capt), KL Rahul, Suresh Raina, Manish Pandey, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Deepak Hooda, Washington Sundar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Axar Patel, Vijay Shankar, Shardul Thakur, Jaydev Unadkat, Mohammad Siraj, Rishabh Pant.

Earlier, India's young bowling unit got its bearings back with a disciplined effort to restrict Bangladesh to a modest 139 for eight. In the field, they were poor as they dropped as many as five catches. And in 18.3 overs they chased the runs successfully. Towards the end, Indian bowlers felt the pressure and leaked the runs - and as a result, India lost the issue.Earlier, opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan cracked 90 off 49 deliveries to drive India to 174 for five.

Dhawan admitted that India lost the game in the two Power Plays as while India garnered just 40 runs, Sri Lanka hammered 75 to push India on the backfoot. But this was the first time he has scored back-to-back fifties. But now India have a chance to regroup and get the win against Bangladesh, an opposition who they face in the 2nd T20I on Thursday. Kusal Janith Perera's swift half-century placed Sri Lanka back in the driver's seat.

Wilder vows to prove he is world's best heavyweight boxer against Ortiz
Ortiz peeled his considerable frame off the canvas and shrugged his shoulders to suggest he was unperturbed, but he's a poor liar. While Wilder had won 38 of his first 39 bouts by knockout, he has consistently drawn criticism for facing inferior competition.

The victory means India have kept their 100% win-record intact against Bangladesh in T20Is, winning all the 6 encounters.

Team India's batting and bowling lacked the spark and the Men in Blue would not want to repeat the same mistakes in the second match.

Shankar bowled even better in this match which is why captain Rohit Sharma trusted him to bowl his full quota of 4 overs. We did give away quite a few dot balls going for big shots and we have to rectify how to play the over when we have already scored few boundaries. Through January and February, Sri Lanka played a one-day worldwide tri-series (also featuring Zimbabwe), two Tests and two Twenty20 internationals in Bangladesh. Shardul Thakur's deliveries saw all corners of the ground as he conceded 27 off his first over.
