India (IND) vs Bangladesh (BAN) Highlights: BAN pip IND by 5 runs to clinch series

Preview: India take on Bangladesh in a must-win clash on Sunday at Dhaka. After losing the first ODI, India cannot afford any more slip-ups as they take on the hosts in the second ODI.

Rohit Sharma and Co had a disastrous start to the three-match series as they were bundled out for 186. The top order consisting of Rohit, Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli failed on the day and a 73-run knock from KL Rahul helped India to a challenging total.

Indian bowlers did well to keep the visitors in the contest and reduced Bangladesh to 136/9 but the 51-run stand between Mehidy Hasan and Mustafizur Rahman for the last wicket helped the hosts secure a crucial win.

The Men in Blue had suffered a 2-1 defeat the last time they played a bilateral ODI series in Bangladesh, back in 2015 during MS Dhoni’s reign. And much like the current assignment, that series also took place right after a World Cup hosted in Australia.

Team India arrived in Bangladesh on the back of a T20 World Cup campaign in which they finished top of their group in the Super 12s but bowed out after a 10-wicket thrashing at the hands of eventual champions England.

The T20 World Cup was followed by a limited-overs tour of New Zealand, which was skipper by a number of India regulars including captain Rohit Sharma, with Hardik Pandya and Shikhar Dhawan taking over the leadership duties for the T20Is and ODIs respectively. India won the T20I series 1-0, and lost the ODIs by a similar margin.
