Mirpur: India's captain for the tour Suresh Raina yesterday said that the impressive performances of young players like Stuart Binny and Mohit Sharma in the ODI series win over Bangladesh augurs well for the 'Men In Blue' ahead of the 2015 World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.

A second strength India clinched the three-match ODI series against Bangladesh 2-0 after the third and final game of the rubber was abandoned yesterday because of intermittent showers. Even though India produced yet another shoddy batting display, Raina was satisfied with the overall performance of his team.

"I am very happy with the side, especially Stuart Binny, who bowled really well alongside Mohit Sharma and Umesh Yadav. We played good cricket, especially when you know World Cup is coming up, a lot of youngsters showed their character," Raina said at the post-match presentation ceremony.
