India won the series against Bangladesh 2-0 after their third and final one-day international was abandoned due to heavy rain on Thursday (local time).

India was 119-9 in 34.2 overs before the third spell of rain forced umpires to call off the match.

Cheteshwar Pujara was the top scorer with 27 while Stuart Binny was 25 not out. Suresh Raina also made 25.

India won the toss despite the overcast conditions suiting seam bowlers, and Bangladesh's pacemen made regular inroads.

Mashrafe Mortaza, Al-Amin Hossain and Taskin Ahmed bowled with controlled aggression to reduce India to 13-3 before the first rain delay.

After the break, Al-Amin quickly removed Manoj Tiwary to leave India 16-4.

Pujara and Raina halted the collapse before the second spell of rain, which delayed the game for 2 1/2 hours, and reducing it to 40 overs per side.

Shortly after the second rain break, Shakib Al Hasan removed Raina to end the 41-run partnership with Pujara, who combined with Wriddiman Saha to provide further resistance before Shakib again broke through, dismissing Saha on 16.

Binny took India past 100 as more tail-end wickets fell around him before the third spell of heavy rain forced the abandonment.

Shakib was the most successful bowler with 3-27. Ahmed and Al-Amin Hossain claimed two wickets apiece, while Mashrafe Bin Mortaza and Sohag Gazi took one wicket each.
