Conditions were perfect, want to finish series well: Rohit

India stand-in captain Rohit Sharma, who smashed a whirlwind 43-ball 85 in his 100th T20 international, said it was the conditions that helped him bat the way he did and the team wants to finish on a high by winning the three-match T20 series against Bangladesh after drawing level here on Thursday.

India lost the first T20 by seven wickets but rode Rohit’s heroics to win by eight wickets here.

Chasing a modest 154 for victory, Rohit looked in his imperious best from the get-go as he hit six fours and six sixes to take the tie away from the visitors single-handedly. He was looking good for his fifth T20 century but fell short in the end as he was caught by substitute Mohammad Mithun at deep midwicket off Aminul Islam in the 13th over.
