Kohli yet again making the best use of this opportunity. He should pick up the Man of the Series prize.

Facile win for India and good practice ahead of the final. They will need to tighten their death bowling. They ended up chasing more than what they would have expected. The batting needs no fine tuning at all. Al izz well.

We never got to see Bangladesh bat second. They had an opportunity against India earlier but Shakib had other ideas. Who knows, they could pulled off a win somewhere.

Here's the presentation.

Shakib: " Good to have a score under my belt. There was no dew today and I thought my spinners bowled better. Mahmudullah and some others have come good and it's a good sign for us. It's a learning curve for us."

Dhoni: "The whole team is in good form. Virat is learning, he made a few mistakes early in his career, really good to have him in form."

Kohli is the Man of the Match: "I'm lucky enough to playing at No.3 with this batting line-up. It's important for me to grab my chances, I used to get out after making starts. I'm learning from that."

Thanks for your company today. Join us for the final between India and Sri Lanka on Wednesday. It's goodbye from all of us here. Cheers.

Dropped and it's Ashraful again! Oh dear! Raina pulls a short delivery and aims to clear deep midwicket, Ash had to run across to his right and he had it covered, dropped it on the dive, is it the lights or is it slightly misty out there? Could be the dew
