Nidahas Trophy: Bangladesh opt to field against India

India v Bangladesh India bowl first against Sri Lanka in T20 tri-series
Chelsea Rogers | 16 March, 2018, 05:12

As for the bowlers, medium pacers Jaydev Unadkat, Shardul Thakur and Vijay Shankar helped India restrict Bangladesh to 139/8 in the last match after being wasteful in the first match.

Shardul Thakur knows that opportunities in a settled Indian limited-overs attack won't come easily and that's the reason he is ready to "step up" as India's stop-gap third seamer in the absence of Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah. India eye final berth Buoyant after the win on Monday, a confident Rohit Sharma-led India would aim to seal a final berth in the tri-series when they face a tricky Bangladesh at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo today. A win against India onWednesday will boost their chances of entering the final of the tournament.

Manish Pandey and Dinesh Karthik reliably stitched a partnership to take India home after they were in a iffy situation at 86/4 at one stage. In the match, India won by six wickets. "The conditions weren't easy for the bowlers, there was a bit of dew on the ground". We had a couple of plans and we executed them well.

For India, opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan has been outstanding, scoring 90 and 55 in the two matches, as he continued from where he left off in South Africa.

Pandey has been one of the standout performers with the bat during the series having delivered consistent performances lower down the order in all three matches thus far.

It will be interesting to see if Rohit promotes Lokesh Rahul to open the innings and himself comes down at No. 4 - something that he has done for Mumbai Indians in the IPL over the years.

"We bat really deep, and we haven't had a batting line-up like that in a long time".

If Bangladesh beat India in their next encounter and then lose to Sri Lanka, all teams will be on four points, which will then bring run rate into play. Rahul is a specialist opener, who is also used as a floater in the middle-order. They will play with Bangladesh tomorrow and a victory in that game will secure them a place in Final which will be played on Sunday. "Can't single out a performance, it was a complete team effort", he added. In the first game against the hosts, he was hit for 27 runs in his first over of his spell and although he pulled things back later in the game, the early assault had ensured Sri Lanka snapped their seven-game losing streak in Twenty20s against India.

For India the biggest worry is skipper Rohit Sharma's form.

Speaking in the pre-match press conference, Mahmudullah said, "When we got the news of the unfortunate plane crash yesterday (Monday), we were deeply distressed by it".
