India vs Bangladesh, 1st T20I

After a successful comeback Bangladesh team today they ready to fight again in Rajkot stadium . last match india try to defend Bangladesh but they fail to do this .Hope this match will be more exiting match .

India (From): Rohit Sharma(c), Shikhar Dhawan, Lokesh Rahul, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant(w), Shivam Dube, Krunal Pandya, Washington Sundar, Deepak Chahar, Yuzvendra Chahal, K Khaleel Ahmed

Bangladesh (From): Liton Das, Mohammad Naim, Soumya Sarkar, Mushfiqur Rahim(w), Mahmudullah(c), Afif Hossain, Mosaddek Hossain, Aminul Islam, Shafiul Islam, Al-Amin Hossain, Mustafizur Rahman, Abu Hider Rony, Arafat Sunny, Mohammad Mithun, Taijul Islam

In the batting department, Mushfiqur Rahim and Mahmudullah were able to banish the ghosts of 2016 Bangalore to an extent with their finishing act, but the visitors will need their top order to fire on a surface that is expected to be a lot better for batting. If the stars align once again, not only will they be able to clinch the series, but also gatecrash Rohit Sharma’s party. The stand-in Indian skipper is all set to play his 100th T20I and he will be eager to pull one back by leading from the front in a format he has mastered over the years.

Rohit’s opening partner, Shikhar Dhawan, will be under a bit of pressure though to get the team off to a flier. India’s conservative approach at the start of the innings have come under criticism of late in T20 cricket and it will be interesting to see if both Rohit and Shikhar start taking the initiative right from the word go. A strong batting performance will certainly put Bangladesh under pressure considering their woes in the format despite the Delhi win. Two days prior to the game, Yuzvendra Chahal pointed out how India are under no pressure after going 0-1 down in the series but good luck explaining that to a passionate fan base that never wants to give up its bragging rights against their most recent rivals.

When:November 7, Thursday, 7 PM local time

Where:Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Rajkot
