India vs Bangladesh 2nd T20: After suffering a defeat in the 1st T20 at Arun Jaitley stadium, Delhi, the hosts are all set to take on Bangla Tigers at Rajkot, on Thursday. Currently, Bangladesh is leading the three-match T20 series, and looking forward to continue the same form. Rohit Sharma had been roped in the captaincy for T20 format, where the hosts were defeated by the visitors in an easy win.
Despite the absence of its senior players like Tamim Iqbal, Shakib Al Hasan, Bangladesh won the first-ever T20 match against India and scripted history. Mushfiqur Rahim (60) smashed match-winning half-century.
It is pertinent to mention that the rain is expected on the match day and in case the match gets washed out, it would put more pressure on India. The pitch is expected to be better than the one in Delhi, where run-making was not easy.
Rohit Sharma during a pre-match press-conference, promised a change in case they get a better pitch, but the change in team is unlikely. Ideally, India is likely to stick to the same XI. On the other hand, Bangladesh may not make any change with the winning combination.
Do you know? Rohit Sharma will be the first Indian player to play 100 T20I. So far, Veteran Pakistan allrounder Shoaib Malik is the only other player to feature in more than 100 games in the T20 format.
