Nidahas Trophy 5th T20: Bangladesh vs India Today Match
Question in detail
Nidahas Trophy 5th T20, Bangladesh vs India: Aiming to seal the final spot, India would face Bangladesh in the Nidahas trophy 5th T20 being played at R.Premadasa Stadium, Colombo on Wednesday. Bangladesh comes into this game having claimed a record victory over Sri Lanka in the last game. Although confident of a big turnaround, Mahmudullah and his men are well wary of India's superiority.
Indians, too, are coming off a win over the hosts. Things are working their way with Shradul Thakur and Vijay Shankar doing well with their respective roles. Jaidev Unadkat, who is leading the pace attack in absence of Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah, has also been impressive with his brief yet useful contribution with the ball.
India doesn't have to bother much about their batting pack as each of their batsmen barring Rohit Sharma is contributing his part. Shikhar Dhawan has been exceptional at the top holding the nerve of this Indian outfit. There will be hardly any pressure on Indian batsmen down the order, more because of Shikhar Dhawan's red-hot form. However, his rare failure in the last game was a chance to Manish Pandey and Dinesh Karthik, who played sensibly to land India home. Yes, someone at the top, who is yet to play a big knock, is Suresh Raina. He is hitting the ball clean, but needs some luck by his side to fulfill the task assigned in absence of other senior batsmen. When predicting who will win Nidahas Trophy 5th T20, India has more chance than Bangladesh.
India's probable XI for fifth T20 against Bangladesh: Rohit Sharma (c), Shikhar Dhawan, Suresh Raina, Manish Pandey, Lokesh Rahul, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Washington Sundar, Vijay Shankar/Deepak Hooda, Shardul Thakur, Jaydev Unadkat and Yuzvendra Chahal.
