Scorecard

The third and final One-Day International between Bangladesh and India in Dhaka was abandoned after 34.2 overs due to rain.

After winning the toss, India had reached 119 for nine before the rain, which had interrupted both of the first two matches, moved in to end the contest.

India claimed the series 2-0, winning the first two matches comprehensively despite resting a number of experienced players such as MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma.

Conditions were once again difficult for batting and only four Indian players reached double figures.

Cheteshwar Pujara made 27 in 63 balls to top score and his innings allowed Suresh Raina (25), Stuart Binny (25 not out) and Wriddhiman Saha (16) to score more quickly.

Shakib Al Hasan picked up three for 27 and there was a brace of wickets apiece for Al-Amin Hossain and Taskin Ahmed as Bangladesh almost bowled India out for the second match in a row.

However, the rain prevented them from managing that, and there would be no further play at the Sher-e-Bangla Stadium, bringing an end to the series.
