India vs Bangladesh 3rd ODI as it happened: India overpower Bangladesh to salvage pride
  • 22:41 (IST)

    That's it from us! Good bye and take care.

  • 22:41 (IST)

    Mortaza lifts the trophy, the crowd goes wild so do the players. Brilliant series win for Bangladesh. They would be looking forward to the South African challenge now.

  • 22:39 (IST)

    Mortaza: The way we have been playing, we can take a lot of positives from it. Not to forget, we can learn from the mistakes we made today. Mustafizur has been brilliant, he handles the pressure well too. He's a newcomer and there's a lot for him to learn. Hopefully, he can keep going like this. We lost too many wickets in the middle. The batsmen got starts but couldn't get going. We need to keep going like the way we have done, but it's also important to learn from the mistakes. Hopefully, we can play well against South Africa as well.

  • 22:37 (IST)

    Dhoni: If we give our bowlers those extra 10-15 runs, the game is on. Partnerships were the key. At times on slow pitches, it looks like you are behind the target. We have resources in the last 10 overs to get a par-plus total. In the last two years I have hardly batted at 4. If I have, I have only done so after the 30th-35th over. This was my chance to bat. That's why we have pushed Raina to number 6 so that we have an experienced batsman at 6. This win is good, but we need to make a decision if we want quick bowlers or if we want good bowlers even if they are not quick. 

  • 22:31 (IST)

    Raina: We played really well as a group. Dhoni and Dhawan had a good partnership. Dhoni took the responsibility. And then me and Binny had a good partnership. Dhawal started off the bowling well, and me and Ashwin followed up on it. We played really well today, that's the positive we will take from here. Bangladesh played really well, looking forward to coming back here.

  • 22:29 (IST)

    Mustafizur Rahman is named the Man of the Series.

  • 22:26 (IST)

    Suresh Raina is named the Man of the Match.

  • 22:23 (IST)

  • 22:20 (IST)

  • 22:19 (IST)

  • 22:18 (IST)

  • 22:17 (IST)

  • 22:16 (IST)

    That's it! India win by 77 runs.

    OUT! Quicker and in the blockhole on off, Mustafizur looks to dig but misses and is trapped LBW off Rayudu.

    A clinical performance from India. They have salvaged some pride. Dhoni and Dhawan led the way with fifties to help India post a competitive 317. Chasing the target, Bangladesh lost Tamim early but Sarkar then played some lovely shots. Just when he was looking dangerous, Dhawal snapped him. Bangladesh kept losing wickets at regular intervals and couldn't build big partnerships and that brought about his down fall. Raina achieved his career best figures of 8-0-45-3, while Ashwin and Dhawal too bowled well with figures of 10-1-35-2 and 8-0-34-2 respectively.

  • 22:11 (IST)

    Hossain charges down the track and looks to heave but gets a leading edge to point where the fielder makes no mistake. He was forced to do something out of the ordinary. 

    Rubel Hossain is the enw batsman.

    OUT! Ashwin removes Mortaza. Mashrafe Mortaza b Ashwin 0 (9b 0x4 0x6)

    Lovely off-spinner's delivery. Loopy and a tad full outside off, Mortaza charges down the track for a slog sweep but is done in by the flight. He misses. The ball spins in sharply and rattles the timber. 

    Arafat Sunny is the new batsman.

  • 21:30 (IST)

    Ashwin back into the attack.

  • 21:30 (IST)

    After 35 overs, Bangladesh 202/6 (Nasir 23, Mortaza 0)

    Another good over from Binny. Mortaza survived a close have as his leading edge fell jsut short of Dhawan at point. Dhawan was caught in two minds and hence was late in reacting. 4 runs off the over. 

  • 21:25 (IST)

    After 34 overs, Bangladesh 198/6 (Nasir 20, Mortaza 0)

    A good tight over from Raina. He's done a really good job here. Just one run off it. His figures read 6-0-33-2.

  • 21:22 (IST)

    Raina continues...

  • 21:21 (IST)

    After 33 overs, Bangladesh 197/6 (Nasir 19, Mortaza 0)

    Sabbir starts the over well as he cracks one over extra cover for a bounadry and then guides one just wide of Dhoni for consecutive fours. But Binny fights back to remove Sabbir. 9 runs and a wicket off the over. 

  • 21:20 (IST)

    OUT! Binny has the last laugh. Sabbir Rahman b Binny 43 (38b 6x4 0x6)

    After been cracked for consecutive fours, Binny bounces back to castle Sabbir. The partnership was threatening to develop and Sabbir was looking ominous but Binny bowls a very good slower off cutter, Sabbir stays in his crease and loosk to push but is done in by the off spin. He misses and the ball rattles the timber.

    Mashrafe Mortaza is the new batsman.

  • 21:16 (IST)

  • 21:14 (IST)

    After 31 overs, Bangladesh 179/5 (Sabbir 28, Nasir 17)

    Hossain survivesa a close run out call off the last ball of the over. Sabbir pushes it to covers and sets off for a single. Kohli scores a direct hit at the striket's end but replays show Hossain just about made it. There is a huge roar from the crowd as the Not out message flashes on the screen. Just three runs off the over. 

  • 21:05 (IST)

    Another bowling change. Binny back on...

  • 21:03 (IST)

    After 30 overs, Bangladesh 176/5 (Sabbir 26, Nasir 16)

    This partnership is crucial for Bangladesh. Sabbir slices one over backward point for a boundary. Three more singles make it 7 from the over. They are consistently scoring at 7 an over. But they need a big partnership here.

  • 21:00 (IST)

    Akshar continues...

  • 21:00 (IST)

    After 29 overs, Bangladesh 169/5 (Sabbir 20, Nasir 15)

    The erratic Umesh has returned. He was too short and got punished. Nasir pulls the fourth delivery over mid-wicket for a boundary and then upper cuts the next one for consecutive fours. 8 runs off the over. 

  • 20:56 (IST)

    Umesh back into the attack.

  • 20:55 (IST)

    After 28 overs, Bangladesh 161/5 (Sabbir 20, Nasir 7)

    The scoreboard is ticking despite the wicket of Shakib. Adter two singles off the first three balls, Akshar drops one short, Nasir punches it through covers for a boundary. Another single makes it 7 from the over. The required rate is 7.13. 

  • 20:53 (IST)

    After 27 overs, Bangladesh 154/5 (Sabbir 19, Nasir 1)

    Raina went for runs in that over but he got the important wicket of Shakib in that over. Sabbir was lucky as he top edged his pull off the first ball but it fell safely towards fine leg for three. Raina then got the wicket of Shakib. Sabbir then punches one through covers off the last ball to make it 9 runs from the over along with the wicket of Shakib.

  • 20:50 (IST)

    OUT! Raina gets the big one. Shakib departs! Shakib Al Hasan c Kulkarni b Raina 20 (21b 2x4 0x6) 

    A touch full on off and a tad flatter too. Shakib gets down for a slog sweep but gets a top edge high in the air. Dhawal Kulkarni from long on charges forward, dives and takes a brilliant catch. 

    Nasir Hossain is the new batsman.

  • 20:47 (IST)

    Raina continues...

Preview: As the words 'whitewash' and 'minnows no more' are making rounds in Dhaka and around the country, India head into the third and inconsequential One-Day International tie against Bangladesh on Wednesday looking to salvage some pride and respect.

What many experts had written off as a cakewalk for the Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led cricket team did not turn out to be so, as after a rain-washed Test match the visitors lost the first two ODIs to hand Bangladesh their first ever series victory.

 India vs Bangladesh 3rd ODI as it happened: India overpower Bangladesh to salvage pride

In the first ODI, all was well for the team in blue as they were on track to chase down Bangladesh's 307 but with 95 for no loss, host skipper Mashrafe Bin Mortaza played his trump card as he brought in 19-year-old left-arm pacer Mustafizur Rahman. With his pace and swing, Mustafizur demolished the famed Indian batting line-up - India were skittled out for 228 in 46 overs.

Mustafizur again was the chief demolisher as he picked up figures of 6/43 from his 10 overs in the second ODI to restrict India to the total of a mere 200. The lanky pacer bowled brilliantly, mixing up his deliveries so that the batsman would not be able to guess his pace and that way he outfoxed both Dhoni and Axar Patel.

The batting department too for Bangladesh has looked solid, to say the least. The opening pair of Tamim Iqbal and Soumya Sarkar along with al-rounder Shakib Al Hasan has all played its part to get the better of the Indian bowlers.

On the other hand, even though the top order for the visitors contributed in the first ODI, there has been no stability in the middle-order with prolific right-hander Virat Kohli scoring just one and 23 in two innings, and the likes of Ajinkya Rahane and Ambati Rayadu, who were given a game each, also failing to live up to their potential.

Head-to-head, Bangladesh have won just five of 31 encounters but in this series it has been the underdogs who have called the shots.

With the win in the previous match, Bangladesh have already qualified for the 2017 Champions Trophy and would now try to seal an emphatic whitewash of India which will place them in the history books for sure.

However, it might just not be that easy as India would not give up without a fight and showing their neighbours that they still are the big daddies of world cricket. Even though it is a dead rubber, the match promises to be an engaging contest.

Bangladesh squad: Mashrafe Bin Mortaza (captain), Tamim Iqbal, Soumya Sarkar, Mominul Haque, Mushfiqur Rahim, Shakib Al Hasan, Sabbir Rahman, Nasir Hossain, Arafat Sunny, Taskin Ahmed, Rubel Hossain, Rony Talukdar, Mustafizur Rahman, Liton Das.

India squad: Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane, Suresh Raina, Mahendra Singh Dhoni (captain), Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Umesh Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohit Sharma, Dhawal Kulkarni, Stuart Binny, Axar Patel. (IANS)
