Indian cricket team in Bangladesh in 2007
Indian cricket team in Bangladesh in 2007The Indian cricket team toured Bangladesh for two Test matches and three One Day Internationals in May 2007. The first match was played on May 10, the first of three ODIs with India defeating Bangladesh by five wickets - less than two months after Bangladesh shocked India by defeating them by five wickets in the World Cup, leading to India's early exit from the competition. India completed the series win with a steady 46-run win, thanks largely in part to Gautam Gambhir's century. The third match was abandoned due to intermittent rain, resulting in a waterlogged pitch - brought on largely in part due to Cyclone Akash which had hit south Bangladesh earlier that day. Leading run scorer of the ODI series and Indian wicket-keeper Mahendra Singh Dhoni took home the player of the series award following a return to form with the bat and 3 dismissals behind the stumps. The Test series ended in a 1–0 win for India; the first Test was affected by rain, helping Bangladesh secure a draw despite two declarations by India and a 149-run lead on first innings, but in the second Test India only lost three wickets in their three-day innings win.
