The India-Bangladesh T20 series was evenly poised until the very end but it was India's young guns who mattered when it was needed the most.
In return, the Indian bowling was all about one man standing up when others were not that effective. Deepak Chahar returned with the best figure for a bowler in a T20 international and that says something, isn't it?
Giving away just 2 runs and picking up 3 wickets in his first two overs, Chahar held one end of the Indian bowling, while Rohit Sharma struggled to find an option on the other.
Just when India were feeling the pressure and it looked like the game might just slip away, the brilliance of two young guns, Shivam Dube, the other youngster who impressed the most on the night, got rid of Naim. Mushfiqur Rahim would follow with a golden duck.
Chahar's 3rd over would prove to be the end of Bangladesh's innings. Having picked up Mahmudullah in the last ball of his second over, he sent packing the tail to claim a hattrick.
