India innings:

Over 18.3 || Score 141/2

6 needed from 12 ball. Dhoni takes a single off the first ball. 5 needed from 11. Kohli drove the first ball through covers for a single, and despite a fumble from the fielder at deep cover, Dhoni doesn't go for the second run.

Seven runs from the over. Mishra has picked three wickets for just 26 runs. Can he win his third consecutive Man of the Match award?

==============================================================

TOSS: India have won the toss and MS Dhoni has decided to bowl first.

MS Dhoni-led side has won their first two matches against Pakistan and West Indies in convincing manner. While the key batsmen have found form, the spinners have performed exceptionally well for the team. India are now looking a very formidable side with the likes of Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin and Amit Mishra in their squad. While the middle-order is yet to be tested, MS Dhoni won`t mind the top order batsmen chasing scores in comprehensive manner. In the pace department, Bhuvneshwar Kumar bowled a fine spell against the Windies and his swing troubled the openers which turned the match in India`s favour right from the start.

Bangladesh on the other hand have looked clueless in the series so far. Nothing seems to have been working for them. They lost their first match against West Indies where their batsmen had a tough time tackling the medium-pace of Krishkumar Santokie. Chasin 171 to win, the hosts were bundled out for just 98 runs. Onus will be once again on their star player Shakib al Hasan who was dismissed for a first-ball duck.
