Nidahas Trophy: Ind vs Ban, T20I Preview
After a eye opening defeat, Out of form Rohit led India is set to take on Bangladesh in their 2nd of the series. With all the odds on India’s side they still look more strong than Bangladesh but it will be interesting to see how the Indian’s play against the Bangla Tigers. Talking about the last match Rohit’s duck and Shardul’s inconsistent bowling along with a silent Keeper were the reasons for India’s loss against Srilanka. On other hand Bangladesh are coming after a series loss to Srilanka back home and are also without the services of their regular Skipper Shakib Al Hasan and Mahmudullah will lead Bangladesh in Shakib’s absence.
All the matches will be played at R.Premadasa Stadium Colombo, 7:00 PM onwards.
The same pitch will be used which was used in the first game. It was a flat deck and assisted faster bowlers up-front.
No changes are expected from Indian Team. But Unadkat’s bowling in the death is a bit concern and also Rohit’s lack of Confidence on Vijay Shankar was seen throughout the match due to which he was able to bowl only 2 overs of his quota of 4.
Rohit(C), Dhawan, Raina, Pandey, Karthik(Wk), Rishabh Pant, Sundar, Vijay Shankar, Chahal, Unadkat, Shardul
