Rohit Sharma heaped praise on his bowlers for taking up "responsibility" when India needed the most during the third T20 International against Bangladesh in Nagpur on Sunday. Having lost the series opener in Delhi before winning the second T20I in Rajkot, India outclassed Bangladesh by 30 runs in the third T20I to clinch the T20I series 2-1 at Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium. Deepak Chahar was the wrecker-in-chief for India as he recorded impressive figures of 6/7 to bowl out Bangladesh for 144 in their chase of 175. Shivam Dube picked up three wickets, while Yuzvendra Chahal joined the party with a single wicket to his name. 

"It were the bowlers who won us the game. I know how tough it was in the middle considering the dew factor," Rohit Sharma said at the post-match presentation.

"At one stage it was looking easy for them when they needed 70-odd of 8 overs; things were looking tough for us," he added.

After being asked to bat, India rode on half-centuries by KL Rahul and Shreyas Iyer to post a competitive total of 174/5 despite a poor start.

Bangladesh, on the other hand, looked well on course for victory when they started their chase. Mohammad Naim top-scored with 81 runs off 48 balls, including 10 boundaries and two sixes.

Rohit, who was leading the T20I side in the absence of Virat Kohli, admitted that his team was under tremendous pressure at one stage.
