A Win Finally!

Wish, this was the first ODI between India and Bangladesh and India is making this grand start. But alas, that was just a fantasy because the ODI series in Bangladesh is over now and India has secured only one win in the three-day match overall. Scoring 317 for 6, India somehow made it sure that it did not get Banglawashed by its comparatively weaker opponent. With Dhawan and Dhoni making countable runs, India made it sure that at least the third match of the series is not being snatched from them by the Banglas. 

With Dhawan and Dhoni’S 75 and 69 runs respectively, India gave a target of 317 to Bangladesh in reply to which Bangladesh could score 240 only with Sabbir 43 and Sarkar 40. Among the Indian bowlers, Raina took 3 for 45 runs. Though the starting by the Banglas was hopeful and encouraging, but the loss of too many wickets by the 30th over broke the backbone of the team to be able to meet the target. With this latest loss on home ground, Bangladesh's winning streak at home stopped at 10 matches which is pretty praiseworthy and inspirational for the team to hope for further better performances in the future.

Amidst the great confusions and debates over Dhoni’s captainship and creating doubts regarding Dhoni’s decision of whether or not to continue being the skipper of the national team, Dhoni has finally been able to overcome all his mental disturbances and stand against all odds. A score of 69 runs in 77 balls while batting at No. 4 is an instance of that only.

The wickets of Mushfiqur Rahim and Shakib Al Hasan were crucial and Suresh Raina played a great match on his part by taking these two and a total of three wickets in the match.

Overall, India won the last match and lost the series to Bangladesh by 2-1.
