The men of Mahmudullah put in their first victory in Twenty20 International Cricket against India at full speed. Can you use that to seal the series with yet another victory when they meet in Rajkot for the second match of the three-game series?
The victory in Delhi under difficult conditions was exactly what Bangladesh needed after a few turbulent weeks. Some of the big names were missing. The visitors showed maturity in playing the game deep on a slow underground and were rewarded for it.
India will be under pressure to avoid another consecutive defeat: at the beginning of the year, they lost to Australia and drew against South Africa.

In the absence of Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar, India’s concern for her death is bowling. Shardul Thakur is another bowling option for captain Rohit Sharma, while Sanju Samson and Manish Pandey are batsmen waiting on the bench. India, however, may choose to give its XI a longer rope before forcing drastic changes.
Bangladesh Historically Win the Last T20I Against India
Mushfiqur Rahim exploded at the series-opening match in Delhi after scoring for the 18th time in the penultimate game against Khaleel Ahmed, chasing 148/6 India with seven wickets and three balls. The 60 * he won came from 43 balls, while Mohammad Naim (26) and Soumya Sarkar (39) made good contributions.
Before this firework, Captain Mahmudullah used eight bowlers to put pressure on the supreme order of the Indians. Shafiul Islam and Aminul Islam each scored twice, while Afif Hossain impressed with numbers of 1/11 in three overs. Shikhar Dhawan scored 41 of 42 balls, but few other Indian batsmen could strike.
Yuzvendra Chahal, Said:
“It’s not about pressure, it’s a three-game series, not a knockout game, so obviously you’ll win, you’ll lose, and you’ve played better that day as we are, we are one. ” and two more matches in front of us, and of course we’ll come back if we believe in ourselves. “
“I told journalists before I left Bangladesh that the only way to get back on track would be to bring a smile and serenity to the team and the team with a few victories in India. “
Weather Conditions | India vs Bangladesh | 2nd T20I Match Live
While pollution threatened the first T20I in Delhi, the Rajkot game could be hit by bad weather. A cyclone in the nearby coastal region should bring rain. However, the ushers are confident that the drainage systems will work efficiently and expect a game when the rain is limited to the morning or early afternoon of the match day. While rain could slow the outfield, it is expected that the field itself will provide many downhill runs.
