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.

Chasing 272, Rohit Sharma did not come out to bat as an opener. Dhawan was accompanied by Virat Kohli, who went back after scoring just 5 runs. Dhawan followed soon after. 

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.
