India got off to a bright start in three-match ODI series against Bangladesh by winning the first match in Chittagong on Friday.

Batting first, India scored 245 for 8, thanks to useful half-centuries from Mohammad Kaif (80) and Rahul Dravid (53).

In reply, a quickfire innings from Khaled Mashud (50 from 39 balls) helped the hosts post a respectable 234 for 8, but that total was 11 runs short of a victory that never realy looked possible. Captain Habibul Bashar top-scored with 65.

For India, debutant medium-pacer Joginder Sharma impressed while claiming one wicket for 28 in his eight overs, while Sridharan Sriram claimed 3 for 43.

I dont think so, he is not even close to international clas... Just coz a guy is patient you cant make him a captain... Scoring half century against Bangaladesh... And one freaky innings in Natwest series, that too without Yuvraj he would have got India nowhere near victory... He should be happy that he is still considered for selection...
