Suresh Raina is the Man of the Match for his all-round game, he contributed well with the bat and then chipped in with three wickets with the ball to help India salvage some pride. He credits Bangladesh for playing well and taking their chances.

Mustafizur Rahman is the Man of the Series, not suprisingly as he became the bowler to take most wickets in a three-match One-Day International (ODI) series, 13!

MS Dhoni: It was important to put runs on the board, and we did that today. If we can give the bowlers extra runs, they always come handy. Partnerships are key, important to keep wickets. In the last couple of games, we needed someone to attack lower down the order but we kept losing wickets at regular intervals. At times, I have batted at No 4, but I have not batted before the 30th or 35th over. We have resources to hit out at the end, we needed someone lower down the order to be responsible to ensure I was playing freely. I have not been moving that freely to spinners but you improve with time. A lot of areas to improve, especially fast bowling, we need bowlers to know line and lengths too so should not just back bowlers who bowl with raw pace. Bangladesh have become more and more consistent. Their fast bowlers are bowling well, with more international cricket they will get better.

Mashrafe Mortaza: They way we played whole series was brilliant. (On Rahman) He has been bowling brilliant and he will learn more as he plays more and deliver for the country. It is tough when you have players going in and getting out. South Africa will be a testing tour and fitness will be tested. Lot of positives to take, we need to learn more and deliver the best in South Africa series.

A consolatory win for India as they take the last game but the series is for Bangladesh. They have been very good and deserved the series win. India end a long season and will hope to rest in time to be ready for the Sri Lanka series. Read our match report: India trounce Bangladesh by 80 runs in 3rd ODI at Dhaka

Hello and welcome to CricketCountry’s live blog of the third and final One-Day International (ODI) between India and Bangladesh at Dhaka. This is Nikhil Popat, and I will be bringing you the over-by-over cricket scores and live updates from the match. PREVIEW: India vs Banglades3rd ODI at Dhaka

Bangladesh have been on a roll of late, as after demolishing Pakistan in their three-match series, it was India’s turn. A rampaging Bangladeshi side under the leadership of Mashrafe Mortaza defeated India in the first two ODIs — clinching their first-ever series win against their neighbours — and also qualified for the ICC Champions Trophy to be played in 2017. READ: India were comprehensively outclassed by Bangladesh; no fluke involved

India have been far off from their best, with their struggles being evident in almost all departments. Shikhar Dhawan has scored most runs for India, and Ravichandran Ashwin has been their most dependable bowler. Apart from these two, it has been a forgettable series for the likes of Virat Kohli, MS Dhoni, Ravindra Jadeja and many more. READ: ‘Bangla-wash’ threat looms over inconsistent India

The young left-arm bowler Mustafizur Rahman has been a revelation for the hosts, who has so far bagged 11 wickets after making his debut in ODI cricket in the first clash of this series. He took a five-wicket haul in the first match and followed it up with six wickets in the second ODI to dismantle India’s pride.

Squads:

Bangladesh: Mashrafe Mortaza (c), Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), Rubel Hossain, Sabbir Rahman, Mustafizur Rahman, Nasir Hossain, Rony Talukdar, Arafat Sunny, Litton Das, Mominul Haque, Soumya Sarkar, Tamim Iqbal, Taskin Ahmed

India: MS Dhoni (c&wk), Rohit Sharma, Ajinkya Rahane, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli, Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu, Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Akshar Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umesh Yadav, Mohit Sharma, Stuart Binny, Dhawal Kulkarni
