In the third and final One-day International (ODI), India won the toss and elected to bat. Bangladesh captain Mushfiqur Rahim had earlier said that had he won the toss he would would have decided to field first. Either way, both captains got what they wanted and Mashrafe Mortaza was on target in the first over and got pace and carry. The last ball of the over was however put away with ease by Robin Uthappa. It was a lovely cover drive and the ball raced to the boundary.

 

The second over showed that that the wicket had plenty in it for the bowlers in this match. Al-Amin Hossain’s impeccable line had Ajinkya Rahane in a tangle and ball beat the batsman’s edge thrice. It was nervy stuff for the Indians. Al-Amin’s second over was on target too and Rahane in particular was finding it hard to get things under way.

 

Earlier in the day, India won the toss and elected to bat in the dead rubber final ODI. Ziaur Rehman’s poor form meant that he made way for Sohag Gazi and Manoj Tiwary comes for India to shore up the middle order. He comes in place of leg-spinner Amit Mishra.
