it took India quite long to bring the yorker out! Rather, not quite a yorker, but a full and straight ball on off, and at good pace. Fizz again looked to back away to send that driving through the off side, but this time missed. The off stump was clattered and uprooted to Malik's delight
Litton now lifts the series trophy for Bangladesh winning 2-1. His team-mates join in the fun, as they achieve the result without regular captain Tamim Iqbal, and without Taskin Ahmed in the first two ODIs. A closely-fought series comes to an end after a dramatic show by Kishan, as I direct you to Deiva's report. Join us for the Tests in four days' time, as Ranjith, Deiva, and me, Himanshu, bid you goodbye until then!
Here comes Litton Das, the series-winning captain: "Ishan and Virat batted really well. Hats off to Ishan. We tried our best, but we didn't find any solution. If the score would have been 330-340, it would have been a different ball game. They are a good side, and we played good cricket for two games."
Mehidy Hasan is the Player of the Series for 141 runs and four wickets: "This is the first time I'm getting Man of the Series [award] in ODIs. It's [beating India] a start for our team. We have a World Cup in front, and I hope we can get better. We have lots of senior guys talking to us. I just keep thinking positively."
You don't need to be an expert to predict Ishan Kishan is the Player of the Match: "It was a perfect wicket and situation to bat on. I was just looking to watch the ball properly, and go with the flow. At this level, whenever you get the chance, you need to make the most out of it. I was just picking the ball and the bowlers, and things were going my way! Our trainer and physio are taking care of everyone."
KL Rahul speaks first: "Brilliant to see how Virat and Ishan batted. The way Kishan started, he was looking aggressive from ball one. He got an opportunity, and grabbed it with both hands. Getting a double hundred in ODIs isn't done often. Batters were really brave, and we decided to do the same with the ball. There wasn't much help [from the pitch]. There are a few injury concerns, but that gives opportunity to guys. We'll try and carry this confidence and momentum into the Tests."
Hang around for the presentations, as we hear from the captains and the Player of the Match.
Kush: "Any guesses on who the player of the match would be..?? :P" --- The groundsman for helping prepare a pitch for Kishan to smash the small matter of 210?
Sai Bandhav: "Ishan defeated Bangladesh by 28 runs."
7.07pm Consolation win for India, and how. They crush Bangladesh by 227 runs, their third-highest victory margin by runs in ODIs. Chasing 410 was never going to be easy, and the hosts never really had any momentum either. Kishan bashed 210, Kohli cracked 113 after being dropped on 1, and the series ends 2-1.
ballooned up, but in between mid-off and mid-on. Short ball from Malik, and rushing on at middle. Taskin pulled, and just above the bowler
plucked to deep third, as he hangs his bat out to this short and wide ball outside off
drilled through cover! Fizz shows he can bat too. Backs away, and crashes that full ball on the stumps to deep extra cover
four byes! Fizz makes room, and Malik follows to angle on in sharply which ends outside leg. Fizz is cramped for room, as he misses the ball, and so does Rahul diving to his right
jags back in to hit his front pad on middle and leg off a good length, as Fizz almost loses balance. Half an appeal for leg before there
Afeef: "Let Ishan bowl an over" --- Looks like that's exactly what will work for India to get the final wicket
pushes this loopy and full ball on off to long-off
But leg slip will be there for Fizz
good length and wide of off. Slapped to deep point with the turn away
Back over. Leg slip gone.
crushed over deep midwicket! What a lovely sound off the bat, and that invites Rahul to have a word with Kuldeep. Taskin gets down on his knees, and belts the slog sweep off this full ball on off
Sachin: "Here we go again! India struggling to take last wicket"
fullish, and on middle and off. Tapped down
Around the stumps
swished from the inside half of the bat to deep square, as he slogs to this full ball on middle
good length, and turning away to end on off. Dabbed down with the turn
Kuldeep will finish off
has a swing at this good length ball but is beaten. Again shapes away to end outside off
short again outside off, and ramped to wide deep third, where Kishan overruns to his left before recovering well
Kohli now comes closer to the keeper
between keeper and second slip! Opens the bat face to this good length ball shaping across, and just helps it. Lucky escape
Tushar Sem: "What is India's biggest victory margin in ODIs?" --- It's 257 runs from 2007, and it'll stay that way for now
short and angling across to end around sixth stump. Has a stab but is beaten again
shorter in length, and angling in from outside off. He tries to ramp but misses again
Faruque: "Any guesses for man of the series?" --- That doesn't need any guessing, just like today's Player-of-the-Match award winner
has a flash but is beaten. Good length around sixth stump from Malik
Malik from around the wicket
leading edge to point, as he tries to clip this good length ball
turns away off a much fuller length on off, and defended off the outside edge to point
