With Bangladesh seeming in control of the run chase at one stage, going on the ground with only five bowlers seemed a catastrophe India had committed until Deepak Chahar’s maiden hat-trick ruthlessly bundled the visitors to seal a 2-1 series win.
Here are all the records that were broken
Put on to bat first by Bangladesh, the visitors were quick to dismiss the openers Rohit Sharma (2) and Shikhar Dhawan (19). Thereafter, KL Rahul and Shreyas Iyer toyed with Bangladesh bowling to add 59 runs for the third wicket.
Iyer Shines, Dhawan Go Past 1,500 Runs
Consisting of 5 sixes, this was Iyer’s maiden T20I half-century. KL Rahul (52) slammed his sixth career T20I fifty.
Dhawan’s 19 in the first innings took him past 1,500 runs in T20I mark. The southpaw is now only the fifth batsman to achieve the feat.
Mohammad Naim, Only Help Bangladesh Had
Naim was the best performer for Bangladesh as he hammered 81 of just 48 balls. He is now the highest scorer in T20I against India for Bangladesh. He shared a 98-run stand alongside Mohammad Mithun (27) for the third wicket.

Shivam Dubey who made his debut in the first T20I claimed his maiden T20 wickets in his third match.
Deepak Chahar Fuey Blows Bangladesh
Deepak Chahar stole all the limelight last night with his impressive six wickets for just 7 runs. These are also the best bowling figures ever in T20 international by any batsman.
Yuzvendra Chahal (1/43) registered 50 career T20I wickets. He became only the third Indian bowler to claim 50-plus wickets in T20Is after R Ashwin (52) and Jasprit Bumrah (51).
