India hold Bangladesh to 153-6 in second T20

Rajkot, India: India leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal claimed two key wickets in one over to help restrict Bangladesh to 153 for six in the second Twenty20 international in Rajkot on Thursday.

Chahal returned figures of 2-28 after the hosts elected to bowl first in their bid to level the three-match series following their opening loss.

Bangladesh made a flying start with Liton Das and Mohammad Naim, the top scorer with 36, putting together 60 runs for the opening wicket in just 7.1 overs.

Liton benefited from a pair of reprieves including a stumping chance as a no-ball was called after wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant collected the ball in front of the stumps.

Liton was finally run out by a direct throw from Pant while trying to steal a single after missing a googly from Chahal.

Chahal then struck twice in his third over with the wickets of first-match hero Mushfiqur Rahim, for four, and Soumya Sarkar, for 30, as the tourists slipped to 103 for four.

Bangladesh lost two more wickets including skipper Mahmudullah Riyad for 30 in the last five overs that resulted in 41 runs.
