Shastri who seems to have helped Indian teamâ€™s rise recently said, â€œThat was (first match) a good gameâ€¦Bangladesh was a very good win, to start off with. In the first game, we were under pressure till the last 10 overs, when we bounced back. Every game is a tough game. Itâ€™s about how you balance things out in batting and bowling. We did an excellent job in that game.â€ India has now won nine of its last 10 T20Is in 2016, with the only loss coming against a strong Sri Lanka team.Â Fans who want to watch the India vs. Bangladesh cricket match live online can click here for streaming video through Star Sports.
