India are being led by Rohit Sharma in this cricket series. India have decided to rest their regular skipper Virat Kohli from the T20 cricket series. Kohli will be back leading the side in the test series.
India would have been disappointed with their showing in the first game. Their batting looked subdued for most part and their second line of fast bowlers aren’t finished articles yet. Now they find themselves under pressure to level the series against a Bangladeshi side devoid of Tamim Iqbal and Shakib Al Hasan.
Our prediction is of the inclusion of Shardul Thakur in the next game in place of Khaleel Ahmed. There is also an outside chance of inclusion of Sanju Samson in place of Rishabh Pant in the next game.
Here is our prediction of India’s playing XI:
- Rohit Sharma
- Shikhar Dhawan
- Rishabh Pant
- Shreyas Iyer
- Shivam Dube
- Krunal Pandya
- Washington Sundar
- Deepak Chahar
- Shardul Thakur
- Yuzvendra Chahal
- Shardul Thakur
Bangladesh cricket ironically might have found their oxygen in breathless Delhi. They were hit by turbulent times not too ago with the players strike and then by the shocking events related to Shakib Al Hasan.
Bangladesh’s skipper, Mahmudullah led the side admirably in the first T20. He particularly used his bowling resources brilliantly and constantly had India under pressure. He was aided superbly by Mushfiqur Rahim, who played a superb knock to see them through the run chase.
Our prediction is of the same playing eleven for them for the second game of cricket.
Here is our prediction of Bangladesh’s playing XI:
- Mushfiqur Rahim
- Liton Das
- Saumya Sarkar
- Mosaddek Hossain
- Mohammad Mithun
- Mustafizur Rahman
- Al-Amin Hossain
- Mohammad Naim
- Aminul Islam
- Shafiul Islam
Expert Prediction: IND vs BAN
Amidst grim and tough conditions in Delhi, a young side of Bangladesh surprised their mighty opponents, India. They defeated India by seven wickets courtesy of a fine knock from Mushfiqur Rahim and a useful cameo from Soumya Sarkar.
However, the foundation of this win was set in the first innings itself when Bangladeshi bowlers suffocated Indian batsmen. None of the Indian batsmen truly dominated any bowler and if not for some late blows from Washington Sundar and Krunal Pandya, they would have been even more short of their total of 148 runs.
The noise around India’s batting approach in the T20 format is getting louder. There is a perception that India tend to be extra cautious in their innings formation. Case in point in this game of cricket was Shikhar Dhawan’s knock, where he scored 41 runs off 42 balls and those innings created a lot of pressure on the other batsmen in the side.
Bangladesh would have been pleased with their effort on the field. First of all, they did not complain at all despite being ‘forced’ to play in tough conditions for cricket. Then their young bowlers like Aminul Islam and Afif Hossain impressed one and all with their performance. Despite being short on experience, they have shown that they will be tough to beat in this competition.
Our prediction is of another tough game of cricket for India, but they would like to believe that they have enough experience in their lineup to turn around the series. The focus before that will be on the weather of Rajkot, where a lot of rain is expected in the next few days.
Toss prediction? – Rajkot pitch will be under scanner in the next game of cricket. The pitch on this ground has always been beautiful for batting and is widely considered as a batting paradise. The team winning the toss should bat second.
