More heavy rain in Dhaka denies Bangladesh a potential consolation win over India in their three-match one-day series, which finishes 2-0 to the visitors.

Bangladesh were denied a consolation win in their one-day series with India by heavy rain in Dhaka on Thursday.

The visitors win the series 2-0 after victories in two weather-affected matches, but the Tigers were on course for a victory in the final match before it was abandoned.

India were struggling on 119-9 with five overs of their allocated 40 remaining, and man of the series Stuart Binny, who was unbeaten on 25, the only recognised batsman left.

Cheteshwar Pujara, Wriddhiman Saha and Suresh Raina were the only other members of the Indian lineup who reached double figures as Shakib Al Hasan took 3-27 from 7.2 overs to put Bangladesh in control.

However, the rain reappeared and was persistent enough for the umpires to agree that there would be no more play.
