Dhoni guides India to victory in the first ODI

Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Dinesh Karthik with unbeaten half centuries steered India to a five-wicket victory against Bangladesh in the first one-day international on Thursday.

Replying to Bangladesh's 250 for seven in 47 overs in a match reduced by rain, India made 251 for five.

Man of the match Dhoni (91 not out) hit the winning run in the last ball of the 46th over to complete an unbeaten 107-run partnership with Karthik (58 not out).

Earlier, opener Javed Omar made 80 and Saqibul Hasan 50 to help Bangladesh to their total after electing to bat.

Omar faced 117 balls, hitting two sixes and seven fours to make his 11th ODI half-century.
