Series/tournament name: India vs Bangladesh T20I series
Venue: Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Rajkot
Date: November 7, 2019
Time: 7:00 p.m. IST
After pollution in Delhi, it is a cyclone threat in Rajkot that threatens the India Bangladesh T20I. In a rather unpredictable outcome, Bangladesh pulled off their first ever win in India in any format and their first T20I win over India at Delhi. It has seen the predictions for the series take a massive twist but India are still expected to come back roaring, weather permitting, at Rajkot.
Sans senior players, both teams appeared a tad fidgety in the first T20I. Now that combinations have been identified and battle lines drawn, we should see a more intriguing contest at Rajkot. It's up to India to avoid another loss and a T20I series loss against a Shakib-less Bangladesh.
There is heavy rain expected in Gujarat in the upcoming days and the match could well be a proper washout.
The climate should encourage swing and seam movement. Otherwise, this appears one of those typical T20 wickets tailor-made for batting.
