"It was Ravi who took special initiative to host a dinner at a club in the posh Gulshan area of Dhaka. The team members were told that it's been a moral victory for them as our opponents were never in the match. ('Attacking' Dhoni for ODIs)

"Another reason for hosting the dinner is because Test team members like Harbhajan Singh, Wriddhiman Saha will be leaving for India tomorrow," a source close to Team management told PTI.

ODI captain MS Dhoni along with other limited overs specialists will arrive today. The players will be taking an off today and resume training from Tuesday at Shere Bangla stadium in Mirpur.

There are talks that India might send a junior team to Zimbabwe under the three assistant coaches while Shastri will resume his duties from Sri Lanka tour.

"Nothing is final as of now. There are discussions in BCCI on this issue but a call on this will only be taken after three-match series is over," the source added.
