The final of the Nidahas Trophy was a tight and closely-contested encounter between India and Bangladesh. The Men in Blue managed to get one over their neighbors with a nailb-biting finish on the last delivery of the match and took it home with 4 wickets remaining.

Rohit Sharma won the toss and chose to bowl first. Riding on the back of a well-made half century from Sabbir Rahman, Bangladesh put up a total of 166-8 after the first innings. In reply, India scored 168-6 at the end of 20 overs, courtesy a strong half-century from their captain and a composed finish from Dinesh Karthik.

Here are the hits and misses from the final of the Nidahas trophy:

Right now, this bowler is the most reliable spinner for India in limited-overs cricket, and his terrific performance against Bangladesh was a testament to that. Sharma brought the leggie into the action in the powerplay overs and instead of wilting under pressure, Chahal scalped two wickets in the fifth over of the game to swing the momentum right in India's favour.

His contribution was vital in restricting Bangladesh to a total less than 170. Not only did he pick up three wickets with his clever and precise bowling, but also maintained an economy of just 4.5 runs per over.

He ended with brilliant bowling figures of 3 for 18 in four overs.
