|Third Twenty20 International, Nagpur|

|Bangladesh 144 all out: Naim 81; Chahar 6-7, Dube 3-30|
|India won by 30 runs; India won series 2-1|
Deepak Chahar recorded the best-ever bowling figures in a Twenty20 international with 6-7 as India beat Bangladesh by 30 runs in Nagpur.
The 27-year-old seamer took his six wickets in 3.2 overs, with a closing hat-trick as Bangladesh were bowled out for 144 in reply to India’s 174-5.
Chahar’s efforts set up a 2-1 series win for India.
The previous T20 bowling record was 6-8, taken by Sri Lanka’s Ajantha Mendis in 2012.
Chahar, playing in only his seventh T20 international, ripped through the Bangladesh batting, despite a fine 81 from opener Mohammad Naim, with not a single boundary conceded in his 20 deliveries.
Earlier half-centuries from Shreyas Iyer – with a T20 best 62 off 33 balls – and KL Rahul’s 52 from 35 had set the platform for India’s total.
