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

Pujara and Raina halted the collapse before the second spell of rain arrived, this time delaying the game to 2-1/2 hours and reducing the game to a planned 40 overs per side.

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