India A defeats Bangladesh A in the decider to clinch the series 2-1 courtesy of Suresh Raina’s magnificent century.

After winning the toss in the crucial deciding match, India had no hesitation in batting first and put a solid 297 in 50 overs with Raina and Samson contributing most of the runs. India wasn’t off to a great start losing Mayank Agarwal very early for just 4. Later, skipper Unmukt Chand steadied the innings for India putting a good partnership with Sanju Samson. Chand’s departure brought Suresh Raina to the crease who along with Samson extended the partnership and put India in a commanding position. Suresh Raina scored thumping century whereas Sanju Samson missed out on a well deserving ton. Late blows from Rishi Dhawan ensured India that they reach the 290+ mark. Shafiul Islam was the standout bowler for Bangladesh picking up 2 wickets for 56 runs in his quota of 10 overs.

Bangladesh A side struggled a lot during their chase with the top order failing miserably. All the top 3 batsmen were out for single digits which added huge pressure to the middle order who failed to respond as well. The match was reduced to 32 overs due to rain and Bangladesh was given a target of 217 to chase. Although middle order showed some resistance it wasn’t good enough to take Bangladesh home as they suffered a heavy defeat. Sabbir Rahman top-scored for Bangladesh with 41. Sreenath Aravind provided a clinical performance with the ball taking 2 wickets and went for just 14 runs in 6 overs.

 

 

Brief Scorecard:

India A: 297/6 in 50 overs vs Bangladesh A 141/6 in 32 overs (D/L) ( Suresh Raina 104, Shafiul Islam 2-56 (10 overs), Sabbir Rahman 41*, Sreenath Aravind 2-14 (6 overs)
