High-flying India was brought down to earth by a spirited Bangladesh who pulled off an upset 79- run victory in the first ODI dayer to take a 1-0 lead in the three-match series.
Bangladesh outsmarted India in all departments of the game and extracted a sweet revenge for their their quarterfinal loss at the hands of the same opponents in the World Cup earlier this year.

Chasing an imposing 308 for win, the Indians  made a steady start before losing wickets at heap to be bundled out for 228 with four overs to spare.

"Yes it was disappointing," Dhoni said about the loss.
"But Bangladesh played some really good cricket as a team. Right from the first ball they took our bowlers on. The rain break helped us. It looked like they would score more than 330 but we restricted them to 300, but our batting didn't turn up the way we wanted it to," he said.
The Indian skipper didn't hide his disappointment over the performance of his pace department today.
"The spinners bowled well, Raina's contribution was important, but disappointed with the way the fast bowlers bowled. The Bangladesh batsmen played the fast bowlers well," Dhoni said.
Dhoni also praised the performance of Bangladesh's four- pronged pace attack.
"What I am was particularly impressed with how subtly they changed their pace. They didn't bowl 140 and then 110, but took it down marginally. They did well in the World Cup because of their fast bowlers so we were not surprised they relied on fast bowlers tonight," he said.
