Zee Media Bureau/Suyash Srivastava
Over 17.4 || Score 58/10
It's all over for Bangladesh! Stuart Binny picked the remaining two wickets and Bangladesh, who at at one stage looked in control of the match, have been bowled out for just 58 runs in front of their home crowd! India also win the series. What an incredible comeback it has been from the Indian bowlers.
Al-Amin Hossain b Binny 0 (2b)

From 39/2 in 10 overs, Bangladesh have collapsed to 54/7. The damage was done in the last five overs where Stuart Binny and Mohit Sharma stuck to their line and length and the Bangladeshi middle-order collapsed like a pack of cards. The Indian bowlers have found their rhythm back and skipper Suresh Raina can now hope of winning the series today.
Ziaur Rahman c Patel b Sharma 0 (2b)
Shakib Al Hasan c Saha b Sharma 4 (8b)
Mahmudullah c Rayudu b Binny 0 (1b)
Mithun Ali c Patel b Binny 26 (39b)
Mushfiqur Rahim c Saha b Binny 11 (24b)
Over 10 || Score 39/2
Bangladesh look in no sort of hurry to chase down the total. Skipper Mushfiqur and Mithun Ali are taking their own time and have added 20 runs in the last five overs. Bangladesh have not won an ODI match in 2014 and today could be their day.
Over 5 || Score 19/2
Mohit Sharma got India to a great start as he dismissed Tamim Iqbal off the second ball of the second innings. Tamim had hit a boundary off the first ball, but edged the second one to Saha. Anamul Haque was Mohit's second victim as he saw width of offer and hit it straight to Raina at point. Mushfiqur Rahim is the new man in and the skipper would want to play a captain's knock after all the hard work from his bowlers. 19 runs from the first five overs. India will have to pick wickets regularly if they want to seal the series in this match itself.
Anamul Haque c Rahane b Sharma 0 (8b)
Tamim Iqbal c Saha b Sharma 4 (2b)

Yadav's big hitting skills didn't last for long as he attempted a big hit off Shakib, got a bottom edge which deflected from Mushfiqur's pads and went towards first slip where Nasir Hossain held onto a good catch. It has been a bizarre batting performance from the Indian team but all the credit must go to Taskin Ahmed and most of the Indian batsmen looked clueless against him.
UT Yadav c Nasir Hossain b Shakib Al Hasan 17 (13b)
Over 25 || Score 104/9
Stuart Binny once again failed to prove his mettle at the international level and became Taskin's fourth victim. Taskin made his debut memorable as he dismissed Amit Mishra to claim a five-wicket haul on his debut. Ninth wicket fell at 86 and while India were looking to be bowled out for under 100 runs, Umesh Yadav played a pull shot for a six over deep midwicket to get India past 100 runs. 24 runs have been scored in the last five overs.

Wickets continued to tumble for the Indian team and they lost three wickets in the last five overs. Saha was dismissed by Mortaza and India suffered a major blow as Suresh Raina was run-out. In the very next over, after hitting Al-Amin Hossain for two boundries, Akshar Patel too threw his wicket away. 21 runs have been scored in the last five overs. India are now under pressure to cross the 100-run mark.
AR Patel b Al-Amin Hossain 8 (5b)
SK Raina run out 27 (23b)
WP Saha lbw b Mashrafe Mortaza 5 (12b)

Debutante Taskin Ahmed has been very impressive today and his picked his third wicket of the match when Pujara was bamboozled by a delivery which pitched outside the off-stump and sharply swung in and hit him on the pads. 30 runs have been scored in the last five overs. Skipper Raina is still batting at the crease and the team desperately needs a big knock from him.
CA Pujara lbw b Taskin Ahmed 11 (34b)
Over 10 || Score 29/3
Played resumed after a long delay as a result of which the match has been reduced to 41 overs for each side. The Indian batsmen probably lost some focus in that break as India lost quick wickets. Uthappa was dismissed by Taskin Ahmed as he attempted a pull shot off a delivery which was pitched outside the off-stump and was caught at mid-off. Taskin picked his second international wickets when Ambati Rayudu was trapped in front of the wicket. Suresh Raina is the new man at the crease and he needs to stitch a big partnership with Pujara as it has been a poor start for India in the first ten overs.
AT Rayudu lbw b Taskin Ahmed 1 (7b)
RV Uthappa c Ziaur Rahman b Taskin Ahmed 14 (24b)
The news that is coming in from the center is that the match will resume shortly.
Over 5.2 || Score 14/1
Rain stops play! Rain has once again interrupted the proceedings. The Bangladeshi bowlers were beginning to strengthen their grip over the match. Pujara and Uthappa are the two unbeaten batsmen at the crease.
Over 1 || Score 8/0
Mashrafe Mortaza bowled the first over for Bangladesh and got them an early breakthrough when Ajinkya Rahane was looking to play across the line off a delivery which moved into him and was caught plumb in front of the wicket, Ajinkya Rahane is OUT! Cheteshwar Pujara is the new man at the crease. Excellent start for Bangladesh, Rahane was the Man of the Match for India in the previous match.
AM Rahane lbw b Mashrafe Mortaza 0 (1b)
Toss:Bangladesh have won the toss and elected to bowl first.
Within a few minutes from now, India will lock horns with Bangladesh in the second ODI of the three-match series. A confident Indian cricket team would look to keep the momentum going in its favour after defeating the home side comfortably in the first ODI.
Suresh Raina`s boys are eyeing an unassailable 2-0 lead against Bangladesh which will help them get the much required confidence before the England ODI series comes calling.
A series against Bangladesh is a thankless one as one doesn`t get credit for a win but faces a lot of backlash if there is a freak defeat.
