India vs Bangladesh, 2nd T20 2019
No Shakib-al-Hasan? No problem. Bangladesh carry a 1-0 series lead into their second match of this three-game T20i series with India, after winning in Delhi. The match, at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Rajkot, takes place on November 7 and starts at 19:00 local time.
Bangladesh Predicted Playing 11
- Liton Das, Mohammad Naim, Soumya Sarkar, Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), Mahmudullah (c), Afif Hossain, Mosaddek Hossain, Aminul Islam, Shafiul Islam, Mustafizur Rahman, Al-Amin Hossain
India Predicted Playing 11
- Rohit Sharma (c), Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Rishabh Pant (wk), Shreyas Iyer, Shivam Dube, Krunal Pandya, Washington Sundar, Deepak Chahar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Khaleel Ahmed
Despite being rocked by news of their star all-rounder’s suspension, and having Tamim Iqbal drop out due to the birth of his second child, Bangladesh won the opener as Mushfiqur Rahim hit 60* and the Tigers chased 149 in 19.3 overs.
India remain favourites for this series, however – they had previously won all eight T20i matches they had played against Bangladesh – and the hosts are expected to hit back. Rohit Sharma could be a key figure as he captains the team on his 100th T20i appearance. The biggest threat could be the weather though, with Cyclone Maha heading to Gujarat.

IND vs BAN Toss Prediction
Bangladesh won the toss and correctly opted to field first in Delhi last time out. Rajkot is a batting wicket, however, and Rohit Sharma might want to get an early bat in should he win the toss this time.
IND vs BAN Weather Report
Cricket fans are currently cyclone watching in Gujarat, with Cyclone ‘Maya’ on its way. The cyclone is expected to make landfall the previous night, which would bring with it heavy rains and extreme stormy conditions.
IND vs BAN Pitch Condition
The wicket at Rajkot has favoured batsmen in all formats, with a clean bounce allowing for run accumulation in the longer formats and big-hitting in these T20 internationals.
