COLOMBO, March 14: Skipper Rohit Sharma performed when it mattered the most as India outclassed Bangladesh by 17 runs to cruise to the final of the Nidahas T20 tri-series here tonight.

It was Rohit's 89 off 61 balls that took India to a competitive 176 for three in 20 overs and then young Washington Sundar (3/22 in 4 overs) blew away the top order to help restrict the 'Tigers' to 159 for six in 20 overs.

Bangladesh's inconsistency once again proved to be their bane as they found a target of 177 too hot to handle, having chased 215 in their previous encounter. Liton Das danced down the track as Washington fired a widish delivery, which he completely missed for Dinesh Karthik to complete an easy stumping.

Soumya Sarkar (1) tried a slog over deep mid-wicket and missed the line completely as Washington angled one into him.

The ever dangerous Tamim Iqbal (27 off 19 balls) started on a promising note, hitting three boundaries and a six off a Shardul Thakur over.

Teenager Washington's flatter trajectory paid him rich dividends as Iqbal was bowled trying to scoop another angular delivery over short fine leg. The left-hander failed to get elevation as it clipped the leg-bail.

Skipper Mahmudullah (11) was guilty of squandering a half-tracker when he pulled one from Yuzvendra Chahal (1/21 in 4 overs) straight into deep mid-wicket fielder KL Rahul's hands.
