Bangladesh beat India in the 2nd straight ODI by 5 runs to win the 3-match series in what can only be called an embarrassing defeat for the Men in Blue.
From 69/6 to putting on a monstrous 271 on board, Mehidy and Mahmudullah put up a stellar performance to seal the deal for the hosts.
Despite Iyer's brilliant 82, India just couldn't get going and fell to a loss. This is India's 2nd-ever series defeat vs Bangladesh, with the first one coming in 2018. The Indian skipper come out to bat number 9, threatened with a win for India with a few lusty blows, but couldn't take his team over the line.
It all came down to 20 off the last 6 deliveries. Rohit Sharma almost managed it, but couldn't hit 6 off the last delivery to win the game.
For India, in the bowling department, Sundar scalped three wickets, while Siraj and Umran got two each. The bowling performance on a whole though wasn't really great as the attack let go of an amazing opportunity when Bangladesh were reeling at 69/6. From there, to let the opposition score 271 is a poor performance, to say the least.

Sundar was fine with the ball, but the lack of a proper spinner who could attack was clearly lacking. For Bangladesh, Ebadot Hossain got three wickets, while Mehidy Hasan and Shakib scalped two each. Mahmudullah and Mustafizur too chipped in with a wicket each.
The caravan will now move to Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, Chattogram, where the 3rd and final ODI is set to be played on December 10.
