India skipper Sourav Ganguly was happy with his side's display after clinching the one-day series against Bangladesh.

Following defeat in the second match of the series on Boxing Day, India made no mistake in the decider as they cruised to a 91-run victory.

"After what happened yesterday, we played really well," said Ganguly.

"We were pretty worked up yesterday, as we should have been, but I'm hoping that was just a one-off and not a regular thing."

After a batting blitz in the decider at Dhaka, India posted 348-5, a total Bangladesh were never likely to be reach, although they managed a creditable 257-9 in their reply.

Ganguly admitted it was a good toss to win, adding: "It was a good track and we batted very well. We had a good start which laid the foundation for a big score."

He also praised Bangladesh's competitive spirit.

"They put up a very good show in the one-day format of the game. They have some good players and if they can get their combination right, they will improve greatly as a team."

Bangladesh captain Habibul Bashar was pleased with the way his side have performed against India.

"We hadn't played very well in the last few series, but our performance here has provided a big confidence boost," said Bashar.

"We batted well and the fielding was excellent, however, we need to bowl a bit better."
