49.3 - Mohit Sharma to Mortaza, FOUR, back-to-back boundaries for the Bangladeshi skipper. It was the quick length delivery, Mortaza makes room and hoicks it in front of square, Rohit at deep mid-wicket had no chance of stopping that. The crowd gather their voice once again

49.2 - Mohit Sharma to Mortaza, FOUR, another slower ball from Mohit and this time Mortaza has picked it up, he heaves it to deep mid-wicket, hits it to the right of the fielder and brings up the 300 for Bangladesh. First time that they have scored 300 against India in an ODI

47.2 - U Yadav to Mortaza, FOUR, length ball and Mortaza throws his bat at it. It was in the slot, he clears his front leg and tonks it over the mid-on fielder, once it went past the infield, it was always going to be four

46.2 - Bhuvneshwar to Rubel, FOUR, that's beautifully played, another low full toss outside off, Rubel doesn't do anything fancy, opens the bat face and steers it behind point, third man was inside the ring and he placed it wide of him as well

45.3 - U Yadav to Nasir Hossain, FOUR, Umesh provides room outside off, the length is also short, Hossain cuts it up and over backward point, couple of bounces and into the fence

44.4 - Bhuvneshwar to Mortaza, leg byes, FOUR, Bhuvi misses the yorker, bowls a low full toss down leg, Mortaza can't meet with the tickle, but the ball hits the left boot and runs away fine. Bangladesh won't mind how the runs come

41.4 - Ravindra Jadeja to Nasir Hossain, FOUR, short and outside off, Hossain cuts it to deep backward point, Rahane does all the hard work of running to his left, dives but can't stop the ball from reaching the fence

39.5 - Ravindra Jadeja to Nasir Hossain, FOUR, calculated hit from Hossain, saw that the mid-on fielder was inside the ring, comes out of the crease and lofts it over the man, almost carried the distance, one bounce and into the fence

35.0 - Mohit Sharma to S Rahman, FOUR, 15 runs from the over. It was the slower delivery, back of the hand, Rahman seemed to be expecting that, plants his front foot forward and tonks it over mid-wicket, wide of the fielder in the deep

34.4 - Mohit Sharma to Shakib, FOUR, Mohit is leaking plenty of runs. Short delivery, just sat up there to be put away, Shakib pulls it off the front foot to deep mid-wicket, no one protecting the fence

34.3 - Mohit Sharma to Shakib, FOUR, what placement from Shakib! Two fielders at point and he has bisected them to perfection, Mohit bowls short and provides room, Shakib gets on top of the bounce and cuts, Umesh runs to his left, slides and the ball goes through his legs

31.5 - Ravindra Jadeja to S Rahman, FOUR, the crowd gets going once again. It was tossed up on off and middle, Rahman goes down on his knee and sweeps it behind square leg, had he missed that, it would have been close

30.5 - U Yadav to S Rahman, FOUR, top shot! Rahman is looking good. Banged in short without much venom, Rahman pulls it off the front foot over mid-wicket, no one in the deep and he picks up four more

29.5 - Ravindra Jadeja to S Rahman, FOUR, Rahman will keep playing his shots. Tossed up just outside off, Rahman kneels down and slog sweeps it over mid-wicket, once again it came off the middle

28.2 - Raina to S Rahman, FOUR, that's a brave hit. Flighted on off, Rahman reverse sweeps it between backward point and short third man, it came right off the meat as the ball raced across the turf

26.2 - Raina to Shakib, FOUR, fraction short and Shakib is onto it in a flash, he goes deep in the crease and pulls it over mid-wicket, no one near the rope to stop the boundary

22.1 - Raina to Rahim, FOUR, lovely shot, welcome boundary for Bangladesh, this was dropped short and just outside off, Rahim made room and chops it square on the off-side, beats backward point and races away to the fence

15.1 - Mohit Sharma to Tamim, FOUR, this is poor bowling from Mohit, very full and on the stumps, Tamim clears his front leg and drills it hard onto the ground, the ball bounces over the bowler and races away to the fence

15.1 - Mohit Sharma to Tamim, no ball, FOUR, fifty for Tamim, comes down the track, gets to the pitch of the ball and lofts it over mid-off, one bounce and over the ropes. What's worse, Mohit has overstepped as well

13.1 - Mohit Sharma to Soumya Sarkar, FOUR, nicely played by Sarkar, this was banged in short and just outside off, Sarkar waits on it and ramps it up and over the keeper, no need to run for those, brings up his second ODI fifty

8.5 - Mohit Sharma to Tamim, FOUR, lovely shot, this was pitched up and held its line outside off, Tamim was looking to go over cover, the bat turned in his hands and he ends up lifting it over mid-off, one bounce and over the ropes

8.1 - Mohit Sharma to Soumya Sarkar, FOUR, both openers are looking very aggressive, this was pitched up and just outside off, Sarkar steps down the track and drags it past mid-wicket, the timing wasn't great, but the ball races away to the fence

7.5 - Ashwin to Soumya Sarkar, FOUR, this is a poor start from Ashwin, he drifts this one well down leg-side, Sarkar gets on top of the bounce and sweeps it fine past backward square leg, another boundary for Sarkar

7.3 - Ashwin to Soumya Sarkar, FOUR, lovely shot, this was tossed up wider outside off, Sarkar leans forward, gets to the pitch of the ball and drills it past cover for a boundary

7.0 - Bhuvneshwar to Soumya Sarkar, FOUR, this is easy pickings for Sarkar, no pace from Bhuvneshwar, yet he goes for the bouncer, pulled away in front of square on the on-side, one bounce and over the ropes, another expensive over for India

6.4 - Bhuvneshwar to Soumya Sarkar, FOUR, lovely shot, on a length and just outside off, Sarkar picks up the length early and swings it up and over wide mid-on, a couple of bounces and over the ropes

5.5 - U Yadav to Tamim, FOUR, cracking shot, too short from Yadav, width outside off as well, Tamim rocks back and plays the flat-batted pull, beats mid-on and races away to the fence

5.2 - U Yadav to Tamim, FOUR, lovely shot, Tamim shimmies down the track, gets to the pitch of the ball and goes up and over point, no need to run for those, the ball races away to the fence

5.1 - U Yadav to Tamim, FOUR, edged and four, on a good length and holding its line outside off, draws Tamim into the push, the egde is found and it drops just in front of Dhawan at lone slip, bounces awkwardly in front of him and races away to the fence

3.2 - U Yadav to Soumya Sarkar, FOUR, nicely played by Sarkar, width on offer from Yadav, Sarkar leans forward and drives it through the line, hits it in the air, but gets it wide of the fielder at short cover

2.4 - Bhuvneshwar to Soumya Sarkar, FOUR, nicely played by Sarkar, but Kohli should have stopped it. This was pitched up and held its line outside off, Sarkar leans forward and punches it to the left of mid-off. Kohli dives over the ball and allows a boundary, he did get a hand onto it, but the ball still ran away to the fence

39.3 - Ravindra Jadeja to Nasir Hossain, SIX, fabulous shot! Flighted around off, Hossain shimmies down the wicket, meets the pitch of the ball and lofts it beautifully over long-off, there was a fielder but he just saw the ball sailing over him

36.1 - Ashwin to S Rahman, SIX, Rahman welcomes Ashwin back into the attack with a six. Well tossed up on off, Rahman dances down the wicket, gets to the pitch of the ball, lofts it handsomely over long-on for a maximum

12.0 - Ashwin to Soumya Sarkar, SIX, cracking shot, this was tossed up by Ashwin, Sarkar comes down the track, gets to the pitch of the ball, lofts it with the spin and clears the mid-wicket boundary, well taken beyond the boundary by Rayudu

6.0 - U Yadav to Tamim, SIX, 18 from the over, this was pitched up and held its line outside off, Tamim charged down the track and goes up and over mid-off, the timing is sublime and the ball goes all the way over the ropes, the first six of the match

49.4 - Mohit Sharma to Mortaza, out Caught by Rohit!! Bangladesh have been bowled out. It is the 8th time in the last 9 ODIs that India have bowled out their opposition. Mohit after taking a hammering all day, has something in the wickets column. Banged in short and just outside off, Mortaza moves away to the leg-side, looks to flat-bat it over mid-on, gets it off the toe-end, Rohit runs forward, dives and takes a good low catch. Mortaza c Rohit b Mohit Sharma 21(18) [4s-3]

48.5 - Bhuvneshwar to Taskin Ahmed, out Caught by Kohli!! Bangladesh are on the verge of being bowled out here. Bhuvi picks up his second wicket. It was a short of length delivery, Taskin takes a step out of the crease, closes the bat face and gets a leading edge to cover, Kolhi takes it comfortably. Taskin Ahmed c Kohli b Bhuvneshwar 2(5)

46.5 - Bhuvneshwar to Rubel, out Caught by Mohit Sharma!! Another one bites the dust. Bhuvneshwar picks up his first wicket of the game. It was a back of a length delivery around off, Rubel tries to flat-bat it over mid-off, gets it high on the bat and spoons it to Mohit, who takes the simplest of catches. Rubel c Mohit Sharma b Bhuvneshwar 4(5) [4s-1]

46.0 - U Yadav to Nasir Hossain, out Caught by Ravindra Jadeja!! That's a superb take from Jaddu. He made it look easy. Umesh went for the yorker, dishes out a full toss, Hossain slices it over backward point, Jaddu runs back and reverse cups it, he made sure that the ball didn't slip out as he tumbled. Bangladesh losing wickets trying to score quick runs. Nasir Hossain c Ravindra Jadeja b U Yadav 34(27) [4s-3 6s-1]

43.4 - U Yadav to Shakib, out Caught by Ravindra Jadeja!! India have got the big wicket of Shakib. He would have been dangerous at this stage of the innings. It was not a wicket-taking delivery, but Umesh will take it, short and plenty of width on offer, Shakib reaches for it and cuts it straight to backward point, Jaddu pouches it easily. Shakib c Ravindra Jadeja b U Yadav 52(68) [4s-3]

37.5 - Ravindra Jadeja to S Rahman, out Bowled!! Cleaned him up! The umpires check for a no-ball, but Jadeja is fine on that account. Another Bangladeshi batsman falls to a reckless shot. It was a straighter delivery, quicker as well, Rahman kneels down and misses the slog sweep, the ball crashes into off-stump. India needed that wicket as this partnership was looking dangerous. S Rahman b Ravindra Jadeja 41(44) [4s-5 6s-1]

23.3 - Ashwin to Rahim, out Caught by Rohit!! Soft dismissal for Rahim! Lovely bowling from Ashwin, gave this one plenty of air and invites Rahim to go for the big shot. He dances down the track, is done in by the spin and drift, ends up dragging it high and towards long-on. Rohit was underneath it, he doesn't drop and Bangladesh have lost their fourth wicket. Rahim c Rohit b Ashwin 14(19) [4s-1]

19.4 - Ashwin to Litton Das, out Lbw!! Litton was struggling and Ashwin strikes once again! This was tossed up outside off and spun back in slightly, Litton was pushing forward on the drive, is done in by the spin and misses. The impact was in front of off-stump and the ball would have certainly hit the middle and leg stump. Not much distance to travel either. Umpire Tucker was quick to raise his finger. Second wicket for Ashwin and Bangladesh are wobbling after the break. Litton Das lbw b Ashwin 8(13)

17.3 - Ashwin to Tamim, out Caught by Rohit!! Tamim has thrown it away! The crowd has been hushed into silence. Yet another batsman has thrown away a start. This was tossed up on the off-stump line, Tamim takes a step down the track, was looking to go inside out over extra cover, doesn't get close to the pitch and ends up hitting it a lot straighter. Rohit doesn't need to move an inch as he accepts the offering. Tamim is disgusted with himself as he walks back. Did the rain delay cause a lapse in concentration? Anyway, India will not complain. Tamim c Rohit b Ashwin 60(62) [4s-7 6s-1]

13.4 - Mohit Sharma to Tamim, out Soumya Sarkar Run Out!! Miscommunication has cost Bangladesh dear! This was very well bowled by Mohit, he speared in the yorker on off-stump, Tamim does well very to get his bat down and jams it out towards mid-wicket. He fell over as he did so, Soumya Sarkar was looking for the single. Tamim was late in starting and then he stopped as he saw Raina swooping onto the ball, Soumya Sarkar was almost halfway down the track. Raina takes his time, aims at the stumps and break it with an underarm throw. Sarkar was well short, no need to go to the third umpire. Much needed wicket for India. Soumya Sarkar run out (Raina) 54(40) [4s-8 6s-1]

49.0 - Bhuvneshwar to Mortaza, 1 run, run-out chance missed! Fullish and on off, Mortaza turns it off the inside part of the bat to mid-wicket, he wanted the run and was halfway down before Mustafizur reacted, Kohli however doesn't gather the ball and that allowed the batsman to make his ground

41.3 - Ravindra Jadeja to Shakib, 1 run, Shakib brings up his 29th ODI fifty. The whole Bangladeshi team are on their feet, applauding the effort. He raises his bat, shakes hands with Hossain and continues. Coming to the ball, too straight, Shakib works it wide of mid-wicket

44.4 - Mortaza to Bhuvneshwar, FOUR, good strike from Bhuvi! This was a short of length delivery outside off, it was the slower ball as well. Bhuvneshwar picks it up early and flat-bats the loft to the right of mid-off, one bounce and over the rope

42.3 - Mortaza to Mohit Sharma, FOUR, full delivery outside off, Mohit loft-drives it in the gap between extra cover and mid-off, it runs away to the fence in no time

41.1 - Shakib to Bhuvneshwar, FOUR, comes down the track and goes for the loft, doesn't connect too well, long-off runs to his right, gets both hands to it but can't hold on. To make matters worse, the ball rolls away to the fence

41.0 - Mustafizur Rahman to Mohit Sharma, FOUR, bowls this wide outside off, Mohit stays back and cuts it through backward point, the ball beats the fielder in the deep as well

34.3 - Rubel to Ravindra Jadeja, FOUR, angles it on off and middle, Jadeja clips it wide of mid-on, Mustafizur dives across to his left, gets a hand on it but fails to stop it completely. The ball trickles away to the fence

34.2 - Rubel to Ravindra Jadeja, FOUR, poor ball from Rubel, gives more width on this one, Jadeja cuts it to the right of backward point and it races away to the fence. Third man had no chance of cutting that off

32.1 - Nasir Hossain to Raina, FOUR, once again advances down the track, lost his footing as he connects with the loft, got enough on it to send it over mid-on and the ball runs away to the fence

22.5 - Mustafizur Rahman to Rahane, FOUR, he hits the gap and it goes for four. Full and outside off stump, Rahane leans forward and drives it between mid-off and extra-cover. This is the first boundary scored in 40 balls

16.1 - Rubel to Rohit, FOUR, short delivery on the off stump, Rohit stands tall and pulls it through backward square leg for four

15.0 - Nasir Hossain to Dhawan, FOUR, excellent shot from Dhawan. Flighted delivery outside off stump, Dhawan steps out, gets to the pitch of the ball and lofts it handsomely over extra-cover, Tamim runs to his right from long-off but loses the race

8.3 - Rubel to Rohit, FOUR, this time he connects well. Once again Rubel bowls a short ball, Rohit muscles the pull and it races away through mid-wicket for four

8.0 - Mortaza to Dhawan, FOUR, Dhawan comes down the track and plays a lovely looking off-drive, he didn't try to over-hit the ball, just placed the ball past the bowler and mid-off had no chance. The length ball right in the slot for Dhawan to execute the shot

6.4 - Mustafizur Rahman to Rohit, FOUR, now this is a delightful cover-drive. Full and outside off stump, Rohit leans forward and drives it to the right of the man at short cover

6.2 - Mustafizur Rahman to Rohit, FOUR, it was in the air for a while but in the gap. Slower delivery outside off stump, the off-cutter in fact, Rohit plays with an angled bat as he pushes at it, there was no one at cover-point and it ran away for four

4.3 - Mustafizur Rahman to Dhawan, leg byes, FOUR, once again the off-cutter from Rahman, Dhawan advances but is cramped for room, looks to defend, but the ball brushes his trouser and beats the keeper's dive

4.0 - Taskin Ahmed to Dhawan, FOUR, lovely front foot punch from Dhawan. Not much of feet movement, but he didn't have to do much as it was very close to him. Full and in the slot, Dhawan times it sweetly through wide mid-off and it races away for four. First boundary off the bat for India

41.3 - Shakib to Bhuvneshwar, SIX, he's tonked that! It was floated up, Bhuvneshwar kneels down and slog sweeps it over the deep mid-wicket fence for a maximum

36.1 - Mustafizur Rahman to Raina, SIX, what a shot from Raina! This was a length ball just outside off, Raina backs away and lofts it inside-out over extra cover. That was some shot by Raina, brilliant timing on that

31.2 - Shakib to Raina, SIX, Raina comes down the track and lofts it hard, connects well and sends it over the cow corner fence

6.1 - Mustafizur Rahman to Rohit, SIX, that's a top hit from Rohit. Poor ball from Mustafizur Rahman and he pays the penalty. Short of a length down the leg-side, Rohit gets across and pulls it handsomely over the backward square leg boundary

46.0 - Shakib to U Yadav, out Lbw!! Bangladesh win by 79 runs, they take a 1-0 lead in the 3-match series. On this very day 10 years ago, Bangladesh managed to beat Australia in Cardiff and now, they have beaten India. What a game this has been for the Bangladeshi Tigers! Coming back to the ball, it was the quicker one on middle and leg, Yadav was caught in the crease as he fails to connect with the clip, the ball would have gone on to hit middle and leg. U Yadav lbw b Shakib 2(11)

42.4 - Mortaza to Mohit Sharma, out Caught by Rahim!! Rahim might have dropped two earlier in the night, but he has taken a brilliant one now. This was a back of a length delivery on the stumps, Mohit stays back and looks to glide it past the keeper, Rahim dives across to his right and takes a one-handed stunner. The Bangladeshi players lift him up in delight. Bangladesh just a wicket away from a historical win. Mohit Sharma c Rahim b Mortaza 11(19) [4s-2]

38.2 - Mustafizur Rahman to Ravindra Jadeja, out Caught by Soumya Sarkar!! Five-for Mustafizur on debut! Wonderful bowling from the youngster. The Bangladeshi players mob him as they know that this wicket gives them the game. What a performance this has been. It was another off-cutter from Mustafizur, Jadeja goes for the loft, doesn't get the timing right and drags it off the inside half of the bat, gives a simple catch to the man at long-on. Ravindra Jadeja c Soumya Sarkar b Mustafizur Rahman 32(42) [4s-2]

36.5 - Mustafizur Rahman to Ashwin, out Caught by Rahim!! Ohh dear! Ashwin is gone for a duck and it's the off-cutter that has given him his fourth wicket. It was bowled on a length and was angled across off, Ashwin prods forward and pushes at it, gets an outside edge and Rahim snaffles it easily. India are falling apart here in Mirpur. Ashwin c Rahim b Mustafizur Rahman 0(1)

36.4 - Mustafizur Rahman to Raina, out Bowled!! Raina has been knocked over here. Another off-cutter has done the trick for Mustafizur, who picks up his third wicket of the night. It was bowled on a length and outside off, Raina comes on the front foot and looks to drive it through the off-side, gets an inside edge that clatters into the stumps. The ball gripped and turned back into the left-hander on that occasion. India are in deep trouble now. Raina b Mustafizur Rahman 40(40) [4s-1 6s-2]

25.3 - Shakib to Dhoni, out Caught by Rahim!! Shakib picks the wicket of the Indian captain with his third ball. Half the Indian side is back in the hut now. It was floated up outside off and turns away sharply, Dhoni was on the front foot and was looking to drive, he pushes at it away from his body and gets an outside edge, the keeper takes a sharp catch and Shakib punches the air in delight. India have now lost 5 wickets for just 33 runs. Dhoni c Rahim b Shakib 5(7)

23.0 - Mustafizur Rahman to Rahane, out Caught by Nasir Hossain!! Mustafizur Rahman has been very impressive on debut. Yet another slower ball not picked by a batsman and Rahman gets his second wicket. That was a terrific catch by Nasir as he timed his jump to perfection. Off-cutting slower delivery outside off stump, Rahane goes early into the drive, hits it in the air and the fielder at cover jumps high and grabs it above his head with both hands. Bangladesh are on top and India will have to play extremely well from here to pull this off. India have lost 4 wickets for 20 runs now. Rahane c Nasir Hossain b Mustafizur Rahman 9(25) [4s-1]

20.5 - Mustafizur Rahman to Rohit, out Caught by Mortaza!! This is excellent bowling from Mustafizur Rahman and he gets his first ODI wicket. He's got a big wicket at a crucial time as well. What a bowling change by Mortaza. A big roar from the crowd and they are right behind the Bangladeshi team. Rahman once again takes pace off the ball, it was the off-cutter as well, Rohit doesn't pick it and looks to work it on the on-side, gets a leading edge that goes up in the air, mid-off moves to his right to take an easy catch. India have lost a set batsman and they are under serious pressure. From 95/0, they've slumped to 105/3. Rohit c Mortaza b Mustafizur Rahman 63(68) [4s-4 6s-1]

17.2 - Taskin Ahmed to Kohli, out Caught by Rahim!! Edgedddd and taken, the crowd erupts. Taskin Ahmed takes off on a celebratory run. Short and wide outside off stump, it was there to be put away, Kohli goes for the cut but only manages to get an outside edge, which goes straight into the hands of the keeper. Kohli is livid with himself. Bangladesh dismissed him cheaply in the World Cup quarter-final and they've got him early again. Kohli c Rahim b Taskin Ahmed 1(4)

16.0 - Taskin Ahmed to Dhawan, out Caught by Rahim!! Finally Rahim takes a catch. Dhawan does not make use of the reprieves he got. He was dropped twice before, in a space of 3 balls, and he's gone for a 38-ball 30 now. Dhawan makes room, Taskin Ahmed follows him with a bumper, the batsman tries to ramp it over the slip cordon but gloves it to the keeper. It was a very simple catch though. That is the end of an excellent 95-run opening stand as well. Dhawan c Rahim b Taskin Ahmed 30(38) [4s-3]

40.5 - Mustafizur Rahman to Mohit Sharma, no run, dropped! That was an easy caught and bowled chance, but Mustafizur puts it down. It was a length delivery around off, Mohit looks to work it through the on-side, drags it uppishly towards the bowler off the inside half of the bat, the bowler bends forward, gets both hands to hit but can't hold on. He won't be happy with himself there

9.2 - Mortaza to Dhawan, no run, Oh dear! Comedy of errors! There was a clear edge, there was a loud shout and the finger went up. However, Rahim dropped the ball, both the bowler and the umpire did not realise that the ball went down as they were blinded by the batsman. Dhawan was also walking towards the dressing room thinking the keeper caught it. Short of a length delivery on the stumps, Dhawan gets an inside edge as he tries to flick. Rahim moved to his right and went with both hands but spilled it. As Dhawan was walking off after seeing the umpire raise the finger, Sarkar fires a direct-hit at the striker's end when Dhawan was out of the crease, but it won't count as it will be declared as a dead ball because of the umpire's error. Second escape for Dhawan in the space of 3 balls

8.5 - Rubel to Dhawan, 2 runs, edgedddd but put down. That should have been taken by Rahim. Short of a length delivery outside off stump, Dhawan pokes at it with no feet movement, gets a thick edge, Rahim dives to his left and goes with one hand but it pops out

14.3 - Nasir Hossain to Rohit, 1 run, steps out and slogs, doesn't time it properly but sends it wide of mid-wicket. 26th ODI fifty for Rohit Sharma and he raises his bat to the dressing room

1.0 - Mustafizur Rahman to Rohit, 1 run, direct-hit would have been out. Fullish and just outside off stump, Rohit pushes it to mid-off and sets off, Mortaza runs to his right, tumbles but quickly releases the ball towards the non-striker's end. Rohit had to rush to make his ground and luckily for him, the throw was off target. India are off the mark
