Meanwhile, Dhoni played a 37-ball 33 cameo before he fell prey to Mortaza trying to take him on over the off side. Dhoni found the fielder in the deep and Mithun did not make any mistake in latching on to that. Rohit and MS Dhoni (33 off 37) shared a 64-run stand before the former India captain gave his wicket away towards the end. India plays their next Super Four game against Pakistan on Sunday. But that wicket did not hurt the Indians as they went on to thrash Bangladesh by seven wickets to win their first Super Four tie. India will walk into the match as favourites as they beat Pakistan in the group stage by eight wickets.
