India vs Sri Lanka Nidahas Trophy India out to test young blood in T20Is

India vs Sri Lanka Nidahas Trophy India out to test young blood in T20Is

After facing a humiliating defeat in the opening game against Sri Lanka, the team will try hard to return on the winning track. And they responded very well.

There is always a bit of needle when India play Bangladesh, but the absence of the two respective fiery captains, Virat Kohli and Shakib-al-Hasan, seems to have calmed things down to a great degree.

Jaydev Unadkat (3-38) and Vijay Shankar (2-32) did the bulk of the damage, with wickets falling at regular intervals; Linton Das (34 off 30 balls) and Sabbir Rahman (30 off 26) contributed the only scores of note for Bangladesh.

Earlier, Bangladesh were restricted to 139-8 after being put into bat. They were erratic and inconsistent with their line and length.

Chasing a below par total of 140, skipper Rohit Sharma fell cheaply once again as he was bowled by Mustafizur Rahman for 17. Shikhar Dhawan hammered his second successive fifty to lead a straightforward chase.

Continuing his good form, Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan scored 55 runs from 43 balls. Suresh Raina also played a handy knock of 28 while Rishabh Pant failed to get in to the double digits.

Shankar, playing his second global game, impressed every one by hitting the right length time and again. I believe in backing the players in the first place. But now India have a chance to regroup and get the win against Bangladesh, an opposition who they face in the 2nd T20I on Thursday.

Who won the Toss: India won the toss and made a decision to Bowl first. Vijay Shankar, the eventual Man of the Match, could have dismissed Liton twice in three balls. Kusal Janith Perera's swift half-century placed Sri Lanka back in the driver's seat.

Today as India take on Bangladesh in its second game, this is what the Predicted XI looks like. Hardik Pandya had conceded 35 in the Asia Cup final in 2016.

The third match of the tournament will be played between Sri Lanka and Bangladesh at the same venue on Saturday.

Indian pacer Shardul Thakur appeals for a wicket against Bangladesh. He also has a strike-rate of 155.67 this year. We did give away quite a few dot balls going for big shots and we have to rectify how to play the over when we have already scored few boundaries.
