That was one of the more bizarre games of ODI cricket you'll see. It was supposed to be 41 overs a side, but both teams together batted out 43.1 overs. Twenty wickets fell in that time. That's all from me today. I hope you enjoyed the game. Good night!

Presentation time They have to create a new award category for 'highest score in the match' since no one made a half-century. Suresh Raina gets a cheque with 'Fastest Fifty' written on it.

Mushfiqur "The way our batsmen played embarrassed the country in front of the whole world. Nothing's going right for Tamim but hopefully he will come back [to form]. Still one more game to go, hopefully we'll play better. It was doing a bit for the quicks but if you came in and spent some time 106 was chaseable. The way some of our batsmen selected their shots was not good enough. Taskin and Mashrafe bowled really well."

Raina: "The debutant bowled really well, I thought we needed to score 180 at least, but the way they bowled, especially Stuart Binny and Mohit Sharma, was unbelievable. This performance will definitely help Binny when he plays Test cricket in England. I knew I have to keep faith in the bowlers."

Stuart Binny is the Man of the Match "I think you wait for an opportunity when you're on top and you try to take it as far as you can. I got that opportunity today and made the most of it."

Brandon: "BD all out for 58. Deja vu for this West Indies fan!" That was also at the same venue.

Siddharth: "Mushfiqur Rahim had called this team "India A" with his (in)famous statement "if they lose, it will be India that loses, not India A". Well, if cannot even chase 106 against India "A", what chance would they have against a full strength India team?"

Tejas: "Why are we even worried about rain when we have matches as short as this?"

Mohit Sharma says it was a good pitch to bowl on. "We didn't have to do special things, just bowl on one spot."

Stuart Binny: "Plan was to come out hard, wicket was doing a bit, we just wanted to put pressure on them by not bowling boundary balls. We started believing as soon as we got a couple of wickets. At the break we just spoke of bowling in good areas and coming hard at them. I'd love to bowl on this wicket every day."

It was a difficult pitch to bat on, and by the time Bangladesh were batting the ball was beginning to bounce up awkwardly in addition to moving around all over the place. Still, you wonder why some of the batsmen played the shots they played. It started with Tamim Iqbal's terrible slash in the first over, and the batsmen kept up his example right through the chase. This is the lowest number of runs scored in any ODI in which all 20 wickets have fallen.

Binny to Al-Amin Hossain, OUT, that's it! Binny has the best figures by an Indian bowler in ODIs! He angles this in from wide of the crease, and it straightens and beats the outside edge as he looks to prod it towards mid-off. Pitched off, hit off, and another Karnataka bowler has dislodged Anil Kumble's 6 for 12 from the top of the pile
Binny to Al-Amin Hossain, no run, short, wide outside off, and it jags away as the batsman pulls his bat inside the line

Al-Amin Hossain is the last man for Bangladesh

Binny to Nasir Hossain, OUT, bowled him, and he has five! That was a full, wide outswinger that he could have driven for four if he'd gotten his front foot across, but his feet didn't move at all and he threw his bat at it and inside-edged it onto his stumps
Binny to Nasir Hossain, no run, that seams away from outside off but doesn't get up at all. He pokes at it, gets the bottom of his bat on it, and it bounces down to the keeper

17 | 2 Runs | BDESH: 58/8 (48 runs required from 24 overs, RR: 3.41, RRR: 2.00)

  • Taskin Ahmed0 (2b)
  • Nasir Hossain5 (11b)
  • MM Sharma8-2-22-4
  • STR Binny4-2-4-4
Sharma to Taskin Ahmed, no run, that's right up to the batsman, just outside off, and he defends solidly into the covers with a straight bat
Sharma to Nasir Hossain, 1 run, shortish, wide, and Uthappa dives across from a wide slip to take the pace off the ball after Nasir cuts

Rajesh: "The Kanga League has started."

Sharma to Nasir Hossain, 1 wide, slower ball, but he doesn't get it right, and it slants well down the leg side
Sharma to Nasir Hossain, no run, short, wide and slapped away nicely but he won't get any runs for it. Rahane moves across to his right to make a smart stop at point
Sharma to Nasir Hossain, no run, back of a length, angling in, and he defends back to the bowler off the back foot. Again, he played that from next to the line of the ball
Sharma to Nasir Hossain, no run, that's wide outside off, and he's let it go
Sharma to Nasir Hossain, no run, bit of bounce from back of a length. Nasir moves away from the line and defends into the off side

16 | 2 Runs 1 Wkt | BDESH: 56/8 (50 runs required from 25 overs, RR: 3.50, RRR: 2.00)

  • Taskin Ahmed0 (1b)
  • Nasir Hossain4 (6b)
  • STR Binny4-2-4-4
  • MM Sharma7-2-20-4
Binny to Taskin Ahmed, no run, angled across, and he comes forward to defend into the covers

Pratik: "Sensational From Binny and it also looks like he has added Few KMs in his normal Speed is it?" No, he definitely hasn't.

Here's Taskin, who bats left-handed. Can he show he's capable of multi-taskin'?
