The third and final one-day international between India and Bangladesh was declared as a no-result after inclement weather in Dhaka.
The tourists had made 119-9 in 34.2 overs, in a match already reduced from 50 to 40 overs, before the game was abandoned due to rain.
India won the series 2-0 after a seven-wicket victory in Sunday’s opening match before triumphing by 47 runs in a low-scoring affair on Tuesday.

The visitors were 13-2 after 8.3 overs when rain fell for the first time at the Shere Bangla National Stadium and had stuttered to 35-4 from 13.3 when the heavens opened again.
Cheteshwar Pujara (27), captain Suresh Raina (25) and Stuart Binny (25 not out) took India into three figures, despite 3-27 by Shakib Al Hasan, but it all proved to be futile.
Raina was happy with his side’s performance, according to ESPN Cricinfo, which reported his reaction from the awards ceremony.
Very happy with the side, especially Stuart Binny, who bowled really well alongside Mohit Sharma and Umesh Yadav. When we came here for Asia Cup, Taskin used to bowl to us in the nets, so really happy to see him do well. We played good cricket, especially when you know World Cup is coming up, a lot of youngsters showed their character.
Binny was named man of the series after his incredible figures of 6-4 in the second match. He said the following, per ESPN Cricinfo:
I must thank my team and Suresh for giving me this opportunity, and I took it. Wicket wasn't too good to bat on, but we came here as a young side and proved ourselves. I wanted us to get around 140 on the board so we could compete.
