Hello and welcome to the match updates of fifth day of the third test match…
Welcome to the LIVE update of the 3rd ODI between India and Bangladesh at Dhaka, Bangladesh. With the Bangla tigers already stunning India by clinching the series, this remains as a consolation match for India. They will look to avoid humiliation by a whitewash in Bangladesh, whereas the hosts will look for their 3rd consecutive whitewash (defeating Zimbabwe and Pakistan, earlier this year).
Teenage sensation, Mustafizur Rahman, is the star of the host side. The youngster has already claimed 11 wickets in just two games with consecutive 5-wicket hauls. He has created a new record for Bangladesh by doing so. Winning toss India was asked to bat by Bangladesh skipper Mashrafe. India has scored 317/6 in their stipulated 50 overs.
India have dropped Ravindra Jadeja and Bhuvaneshwar Kumar out for this game, in come Stuart Binny and Umesh Yadav. Bangladesh have left Taskin Ahmed out due to a side strain, Arafat Sunny will replace him.
India playing XI : Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli, Ambati Rayudu, Suresh Raina, MS Dhoni (capt.), Stuart Binny, Axar Patel, R Ashwin, Dhaval Kulkarni, Umesh Yadav

22:12 IST Wednesday, 24 June 2015
It’s all over! Rayadu claims the last wicket. Bangladesh is all out for 240. They chased well, but none of their batsman managed to capitalise on the strong start. In the end, India managed to shake off their rustiness to get one win in their kitty. Suresh Raina was the unlikely star in the bowling department getting rid of 3 wickets. Kulkarni and Ashwin got couple of wickets apiece.
21:55 IST Wednesday, 24 June 2015
Ninth down now.
21:44 IST Wednesday, 24 June 2015
Nasir Hossain is dismissed. Ashwin. He was virtually the last danger guy holding fort for the hosts. Soon it may be all over for Bangladesh but India can hardly take any happy memories from this match having already conceded the series. BAN- 221/8 after 41.
21:32 IST Wednesday, 24 June 2015
Mashrafe Mortaza departs for duck. Bangladesh is looking to up the ante in the power play, but they have simply lost too many wickets. Nasir Hossain is the last hope for the hosts currently not out on 28 of 26 balls. BAN-210/7 after 37.
21:16 IST Wednesday, 24 June 2015
OUT! This has been essentially the story of the night. Whenever Bangladesh has looked ominous, India has strike back. Now Binny gets rid of Sabbir, who played a busy hand of 43 in just 38 balls. India still though is not out of woods. One good partnership is wll what is needed to get the match in even balance. BAN- 198/6 after 33.4 overs
21:07 IST Wednesday, 24 June 2015
Bangladesh may have lost a flurry of wickets but they are continuing to score runs at a very competitive pace. Current partnership between Sabbir and Nasir is 40 just of 34 balls. BAN-188/5 after 32 overs.
20:44 IST Wednesday, 24 June 2015
Increasingly chances of a whitewash looking bleak for Bangladesh. Now Shakib Ul Hasan has been dismissed after playing a breezy knock of 20 out of 21 balls. Dhawal Kulkarni takes a brilliant running catch after Shakib top edged a slog sweep. Bangladesh is now reeling at 154/5 after 27 overs. They desparately need a partnership to stay in the hunt.
20:29 IST Wednesday, 24 June 2015
OUT! Litton Das is now dismissed. Missed a straight delivery from Axar Patel and is trapped plumb. Bangladesh seems to be losing the plot here. Litton out for 34. Bangladesh 121/4 after 23 overs.
20:19 IST Wednesday, 24 June 2015
OUT! Mushfiqur Rahim has been dismissed by Suresh Raina. Like Sarkar, Rahim was looking dangerous. But part time bowler Raina has managed to do the work for India. Credit though must go to Dhoni for taking a sharp catch behind the wicket. Rahim departs for 24 from 30 balls. Shakib is the new batsman. Bangladesh needs one of the two batters to carry on till the 40th over atleast. A big partnership is the need of the hour. Indian spinners have managed to slow the flow of runs by operating in tight channels. Even Axar Patel is bowling well! BAN- 113/3 after 20
20:02 IST Wednesday, 24 June 2015
After surviving the jolt of Sarkar’s wicket, Bangladesh is well on course to give India a run for their money in the third ODI too. Mushfiqur has jioned Litton in the middle and is scoring runs in a very even pace. They are particularly trying to take on Ravi Ashwin, who is the backbone of Indian bowling. In just 4 overs, Ashwin has conceded 22. BAN-96/2 after 15.
Litton das 22 (32)
Mushfiqur Rahim 18 (16)
19:43 IST Wednesday, 24 June 2015
OUT! Soumya Sarkar who was threatening to take the game away from India has been dismissed. Foxed by Kulkarni’s slower, Sarkar holds out to Ashwin at mid-on. Ban- 62/2 after 9.2
19:34 IST Wednesday, 24 June 2015
50 up for the second wicket partnership between Soumya Sarkar and Litton Das. Sarkar has done the bulk of the scoring. He is currently on 39 from 28 balls. Indian bowlers look to be helpless against classy Sarkar who is currently finding gaps with elan. Will we see Ravichandran Ashwin soon? Ban: 59/1 after 8
19:15 IST Wednesday, 24 June 2015
After the end of 5 overs, Bangladesh are 34-1. Though Iqbal departed early on, Sarkar was in no mood to slow down. He smashed a six the very next ball and is playing with a good pace. If he gets going, Bangladesh may wellrun riot on the Indians. The latest over from Binny was a poor one, two consecutive fours and then three consecutive wides. He has conceded 13 runs from it.
19:04 IST Wednesday, 24 June 2015
Tamim Iqbal is lbw!
That’s the start India wanted. Early blow to the hosts, though not in the most convincing manner. Dhawal Kulkarni bowls a good lenght delivery outside off stump. It is swinging and Iqbal is caught lbw. Great start for the visitors! Bangladesh are 8-1.
Tamim Iqbal lbw b Kulkarni 5 (8)
18:55 IST Wednesday, 24 June 2015
Bangladesh begin run chase.
Tamim and Sarkar open for Bangladesh, chasing a huge total. Interstingly, Stuart Binny begins the Indian proceedings.
18:26 IST Wednesday, 24 June 2015
That’s the end of 50 overs!
Put to bat first, India scored a humongous total of 317-6. Thanks to half centuries from Dhawan and Dhoni and vital contributions from Rayudu and Rohit Sharma. Mortaza was the pick of the bowlers today wih three wickets. Will Dhoni and Co. be able to defend this total? Or will Bangla tigers chase this down and whitewash the Indians?
18:17 IST Wednesday, 24 June 2015
Raina is BOWLED!
Mustafizur strikes again! The teenager cleans up Raina. But India have already crossed the 300 mark. India are 301-6.
S Raina b Mustafizur Rahman 38 (21)
18:14 IST Wednesday, 24 June 2015
Raina on fire!
The left-handed batsman is having no second thoughts on attacking the opponents. He is on 36 of just 18 balls. The latest over producing 14 runs. Stuart Binny also trying to play aggressive alond side him. India 298-5 in 48 overs.
18:02 IST Wednesday, 24 June 2015
MS Dhoni is OUT!
Great innings by the captain. India still have a chance to post a 300+ total. He is fooled by a slower delivery and tries to check his shot. It goes up in the air and Mustafizur takes a superb catch at long on. Suresh Raina is looking to attack now. Stuart Binny is the new man in. India are 268-5.
MS Dhoni c Mustafizur Rahman b Mashrafe Mortaza 69 (77)
17:49 IST Wednesday, 24 June 2015
Rayudu is OUT!
Bangladesh might have just stolen a wicket here. Rayudu goes well outside the off-stup looking to hit it over the keeper. But instead it appears to hit his pad and caught by the keeper! A huge appeal by the bowler and given out. Rayudu is utterly disappointed with that decesion, but he has to go. He didn’t seem to have a glove or bat on it! India are 252-4.
A Rayudu c Litton Das b Mashrafe Mortaza 44 (49)
17:27 IST Wednesday, 24 June 2015
Dhoni gets to his 50!
The Indian skipper has played a good and steady innings. No foolish shots but attacking when necessary. Rayudu oo assisting him well, who is 32(39). Their partnership is of 64 rins from 74 balls. This could propel India to a big total. At the end of 39 overs, India are 220-3.
17:13 IST Wednesday, 24 June 2015
The 200 is up for India. With 35 overs gone, India have posted 200 on the board and still have a long way to go. This could be the start of a big total. Both Dhoni 41(52) and Rayudu 23(27) are looking strong and steady.
16:53 IST Wednesday, 24 June 2015
At the end of 31 overs, India are 172-3. The Indians losing wickets at regular intervals. Whenever a partnership begins to build, a breakthrough is provided for Bangladesh. Dhawan being the latest example. He was going well on 75 but was unluck by a delightful catch by Hossain. Dhoni 30(37) and Rayudu 8(12) on the crease now.
16:38 IST Wednesday, 24 June 2015
Shikhar Dhawan is OUT!
Agian, a partnership breaker. Bangladesh somehow finding a way to break partnerships eah time it builds. The latest victim to be Dhawan. He was on fire with a score of 75, but Nasir Hossain takes a stunner over midwicket to dismiss him. Unlucky for Dhawan who was in such good form. India 158-3.
S Dhawan c Nasir Hossain b Mashrafe Mortaza 75 (73)
16:28 IST Wednesday, 24 June 2015
After 25 overs, India are 145-2. Post his 50, Dhawan still looks in good knick. He is batting on 65(66). Captain Dhoni has got off to a good start, 22(21). The pair now looking for some big overs. The previous two overs conceding 9 runs each.
16:07 IST Wednesday, 24 June 2015
Virat Kohli is BOWLED!
And just as anoher partnership was looking to build, Bangladesh strike again. This time Shakib Al Hasan strikes. He bowls a slower ball which Kohli misreads completely, offering a slog swep and the ball hits the middle stump. Skipper MS Dhoni walks out to the crease, India 114-2.
V Kohli b Shakib Al Hasan 25 (35)
16:03 IST Wednesday, 24 June 2015
Half century for Shikhar Dhawan!
He brings it in style! Back-to-back fours for Dhawan bring up his ffity. That was a good over for India, 14 runs of it. The newly picked Arafat Sunny proving to be expensive. That also brings the 100 up for India. India are 111-1 after 18 overs. Dhawan 53(50) and Kohli 24(29).
15:51 IST Wednesday, 24 June 2015
A lifeline for Shikhar Dhawan. Nasir Hossain bowls to Dhawan who plays a shot. He is just saved as the ball falls short. Shikhar Dhawan looking strong on 41(40) with Kohli alonside him on 14(22). After 15 overs, India are 89-1.
15:27 IST Wednesday, 24 June 2015
After the end of 11 overs, India are 68-1. Rohit Sharma the latest victim of Mustafizur. Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan will now look to build a partnership. Dhawan who looks a bit settled, is 28(28) and the new man Kohli is 7(11).
15:12 IST Wednesday, 24 June 2015
Rohit Sharma is OUT!
And just as things were going right for the Indians, Mustafizur Rahman strikes for Bangladesh. Rohit Sharma who looking set, is caught behind. Rahman has become a sort of partnership breaker and a nightmare for Indian batsman. Virat Kohli walks out to the pitch now. India 40-1.
R Sharma c Litton Das b Mustafizur Rahman 29 (29)
15:03 IST Wednesday, 24 June 2015
At the end of 5 overs, India are 26/0. Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan taking the side to a steady start. Rohit Sharma batting on 18 (21) and Shikhar Dhawan on 6 (9). Spin being introduced now with Arafat Sunny into the attack. A couple of instances of mis-communication from the openers early on which could have led to a run out.
14:38 IST Wednesday, 24 June 2015
Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan open for India. Mustafizur Rahman to begin the proceedings. The youngster is on fire in this tournament, already bagging 11 wickets of his first two games. At the end of first over, India are 3-0.
14:19 IST Wednesday, 24 June 2015
All players having a final practise session on the pitch. The match is expected to begin in 10 minutes. Bangladesh stunning India by already winning the series and going up 2-0. Mustafizur Rahman being the star for the hosts. This is now just a consolation game for MS Dhoni and Co. Will they avoid a humiliation and whitewash? Or will the rising Bangla tigers triumph?
