Bangladesh eye historic series win in India

Bangladesh eye historic series win in India

Rajkot, Nov 6 (UNI) Mahmudullah's men are riding high on their first win in Twenty20

International cricket against India, can they capitalise on that to seal the series with

another win when they meet here for the second game of the three-match series on

Thursday?

The win in Delhi in tough conditions was just what Bangladesh needed after a

tumultuous few weeks, and with several of their big names missing. The visitors

showed maturity in taking the game deep on a slow surface and were rewarded for

it.

India will be under pressure to avoid another limited-overs series defeat at home:

they lost to Australia earlier in the year, and drew with South Africa.

In the absence of Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar, India's concern is

their death bowling. Shardul Thakur is another bowling option for captain Rohit

Sharma, while Sanju Samson and Manish Pandey are batsmen waiting on the

bench. India, though, might choose to give their playing XI a longer rope before

forcing any drastic changes.

In the series opener in Delhi, Mushfiqur Rahim exploded after a steady start to

take Khaleel Ahmed for 18 in the penultimate over, and chase down India's 148/6

with seven wickets and three balls to spare. His match-winning 60 not out came

off 43 balls, while Mohammad Naim (26) and Soumya Sarkar (39) made handy

contributions.

Before those fireworks, on a tricky surface for batting, captain Mahmudullah used

eight bowlers to put pressure on the Indian top order. Shafiul Islam and Aminul Islam

picked up two wickets each, while Afif Hossain impressed with figures of 1/11 in three

overs.

Shikhar Dhawan made a laboured 41 off 42 balls, but few other Indian batsmen

could kick on, an ICC report said.

India leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal said, "It is not about pressure. It is a

three-game series, not a knockout game, so obviously one will win, one will lose,

and that day they played better than us. We are one down and still two matches

to go, and obviously if we believe in ourselves, we will come back."

Bangladesh wicket-keeper batsman Mushfiqur Rahim said, "I said to the

journalists before leaving Bangladesh that the only way to return to the right track

would be with a couple of wins in India. It will bring back smiles and calmness to

the team and the nation."
