India beat Bangladesh by 95 runs

49.3Jadeja to Hossain

OUT! He is well short! Dinesh Karthik has removed the bails and the dive from Mehidy will not save him. INDIA WIN BY 95 RUNS!!!

The batsmen complete 2 leg byes easily but Mehidy wants the third to come back on strike. The fielder in the deep throws to the keeper's end where Karthik removes the bails and appeals.
