On the down side was Robin Singh losing 0.4% ($4) for the day, failing to make any major contributions.

May 31, 2000 - India b Bangladesh
The Bengal Maharajah woke up with a thunderous century to lead India from the front to a win against a spirited Bangladeshi team Though disappointed with his bowling, Ganguly came alive with his bat to increase his value by 16% ($225).

Batting first, Bangladesh batting did well against the Indian bowling attack on a flat pitch to score a commendable 249 for 6 in their allotted 50 overs. Leading the way was Bangladesh Basher, Habibul who scored a solid 57, who was the biggest mover for the day, increasing in value by 18.5%. The burly Akram Khan scored 64, gaining 15%, while the captain Aminul saw his value increase by a respectable 12% ($67)

The Indian bowlers were very ineffective with Kumble, Joshi & Ganguly earning negative dollars for their bowling performances.

Other players making an impact was new comer T Kumaran, who saw his value increase by 14% for his performance with the ball. Sachin, opening the innings with Ganguly, scored a quick fire 36, saw his value increase by 5.4% for the day, which was rather disappointing.
