That's that then. Good night and good luck

Presentation time now

"Pleased with especially Robin and Ajju," says Suresh Raina. "Very happy with the bowlers, especially Rasool and Akshar. And obviously Mishra. It was very tough for the bowlers in these conditions. Both fast bowlers were cramping up. The toughest conditions we have bowled in, in terms of the heat. Robin has been batting well, and Ajju is one of the cleanest batsmen I have seen."

"After looking at that wicket I think we were 20 short," says Mushfiqur Rahim. "But they batted really well, especially in the first 10 overs. Our bowlers also gave away loose balls. Their bowlers didn't do that. Decision at the toss can go either way. As I said this was a young Indian side. Had we got those 20 extra runs..."

"Really happy," says Ajinkya Rahane, the Man of the Match. "The start is really important for any series. The partnership at the top was crucial, but the bowlers did really well in that heat. It was really challenging. We just wanted to give our 100%. We thought they were 15-20 short. The credit goes to the bowlers."

India were cruising when the rain arrived, but on resumption they were left a banana skin of target: 50 off 56. They lost a wicket immediately, but Ajinkya Rahane, who along with Robin Uthappa staked a claim for the regular opening slot, sealed the chase with a cool fifty

Bangladesh will look back at their batting - especially their inability to take singles regularly in the first 25 overs of the innings - and will see that is where they lost the match

Bang_La: "India B team won! "

Mortaza to Rahane, OUT

there is life in this dog yet. Ziaur Rahamn, who was rather slow in diving a ball ago, flies at short third man to send Rahane back. Slower ball from Mortaza, Rahane drives, looking to go over extra, but gets a thick edge, and Zia takes it overhead when the ball has almost passed him
