India aim to bounce back in 2nd T20I amidst cyclone threat

Prime Sports, International (Rajkot), November 7:- After suffering a crushing defeat in the national capital, the young Indian team will look to bounce back when they face Bangladesh in the second T20I on Thursday at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium.

Last Sunday, Bangladesh beat India by seven wickets in the series opener, chasing down a modest target of 149 with ease. It was their first victory over India in the shortest format.

For India, it will be about coming out with an improved performance in all the three departments. Their batting unit, which boasts of having the likes of Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan and Lokesh Rahul, came out with a below-par performance and could manage only 148 at the Arun Jaitley Stadium.

The bowling was also not up to the mark and apart from Yuzvendra Chahal, none of the Indian bowlers could create pressure on the Bangladeshi batsmen.

When it came to fielding, there were many glitches in that department too. In fact, the catch dropped by Krunal Pandya to hand Mushfiqur Rahim another life was one of the turning points in the game.

So, the pressure is bound to be on the Indian side to make a comeback. However, Chahal has exuded confidence, saying the three-match series affords enough time to bounce back. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
