Cricket: Rain stops play in Bangladesh-India ODI



India were 100-1 off 16.4 overs when rain stopped play in the first one-day cricket international against Bangladesh in Dhaka on Sunday.

After opener Robin Uthappa was dismissed for 50, leg before wicket off Shakib Al Hasan, heavy rain forced players off the ground in the day-night encounter.

Earlier, Bangladesh posted 272-9 off 50 overs with captain Mushfiqur Rahim top-scoring with 59 after winning the toss and electing to bat.

Paceman Umesh Yadav was the most successful bowler with 3-48 while spinners Amit Mishra and Pervez Rasool grabbed two wickets each.

Sunday’s game is the first of a three-match series with the second and third games to be played on Tuesday and Thursday.
