Fifties from Shikhar Dhawan and MS Dhoni set India up for their best batting performance of the ODI series and gave them the consolation of avoiding a 3-0 Banglawash. Chasing 318 - it would have been their second-highest successful chase had they pulled it off - Bangladesh made an encouraging start but lost too many wickets by the 30th over to stay in contention. The 77-run loss meant Bangladesh's winning streak at home stopped at 10 matches.

Dhawan stroked a 73-ball 75 and Dhoni, batting at No. 4 for the second match running, made a 77-ball 69 that saw India through the middle overs. Together, they laid the platform for the lower middle order, led by Suresh Raina, to smash 50 off the last five overs. Raina made a telling contribution with the ball as well, dismissing Mushfiqur Rahim and Shakib Al Hasan on his way to a three-wicket haul.
