(MENAFN - Kora) India opened their Asia Cup campaign with a six-wicket win over Bangladesh on Wednesday, ending their desperate run in all forms of the game



Bangladesh reached 279-7 in their 50 overs, which India chased down comfortably, reaching the total with six balls to spare and as many wickets in hand



Kohli's record stand of 213 for the third wicket with Ajinkya Rahane (73) proved decisive, but the stand-in captain was keen to spread the praise around the team, who were without regular captain MS Dhoni



"I am very happy with the team performed today," he said



"It was very important for someone like Ajinkya to bat through the innings



"He was playing so well in New Zealand and South Africa and he played beautifully here too



"He is a very positive guy and works very hard, so it was good for us to stay together till the end



"We bowled well today and there was an improvement in the death overs. It was good to see everyone step up in the absence of Dhoni.



Bangladesh captain Mushfiqur Rahim hit 117 to help his side post a competitive total, but bowler Abdur Razzak cited the tricky conditions as a factor in the defeat



"It was possible to defend a good total," Razzak said. "The big problem was the dew. It was present from probably the 22nd or 23rd over. There is no way out from playing with dew, we have to play with what we have



"I don't know what Angelo Mathews said but you will see in the next matches here, how the team fielding second will be hampered.
