Rohit confident of better show from struggling southpaw against Bangladesh today
Mirpur: Indian batsman Rohit Sharma yesterday stood firmly behind his out-of-form colleague Yuvraj Singh, expecting him to play that elusive innings against Bangladesh today which will get him back to form.
"As far as Yuvraj is concerned, it's a matter of just one innings. If one innings goes well, he will get back his confidence.
I hope that tomorrow is the day when he gets that one elusive innings needed to get back to form," Rohit said on the eve of the third group league encounter against hosts Bangladesh.
Rohit agreed that this is Team India's best chance to get into the semi-finals of the World T20 since their triumph in 2007 but would like to take one game at a time.

The talented Mumbaikar feels that although they have been in good form, there won't be any complacency while facing the minnows. "Bangladesh is dangerous at home as they know the conditions well. We can't take them lightly."
Rohit admitted that batting second under lights has been a bit of a problem as the ball is not coming on to the bat due to slowness of the track.
"If you closely watch the two matches that we have played, the ball turns and comes late on to the bat during second session. It's not easy to bat in these conditions as we expected dew but there wasn't much."
