Ahead of their much-awaited T20 International opening clash against Bangladeshi Tigers, men in blue are sweating hard in the nets to maintain their dominance alive at the home pitch. Both India and Bangladesh are going to take on each other in a three-match T20I series starting from November 3rd on Indian soil.
Despite missing the brilliant services of star skipper Virat Kohli, hosting team India is still looking very much confident for the upcoming match. In the absence of captain Kohli now vice-captain Rohit Sharma will take the responsibility of leading the Indian squad on his shoulders. It will be interesting to see whether the men in blue will be able to clinch the upcoming series or ‘Tigers’ will turn the tables in their favour.
Here’s see some of the brilliant Indian players to watch out for in the upcoming three-match T20I series between India and Bangladesh:
The explosive opener of Indian Cricket Team Rohit Sharma who performed exceedingly well for men in blue in the recently concluded test series against South Africa is currently reigning at his career-best form. As a result, he is going to lead the Indian squad against Bangladeshi tigers in the absence of star skipper Virat Kohli.
The standing Indian skipper Rohit Sharma is now just seven runs away from becoming the highest run-scorer in the T20I format. With this upcoming battle against Bangladesh, Hitman Sharma is looking forward to register a new record in the history of cricket. It will be interesting to see how the experienced right-handed batsman will perform for his squad.
The young emerging star of Indian Cricket Team, Rishabh Pant who has been out of his unique attacking form is now hoping to play some big shots for India in the upcoming T20I clash against Bangladesh at Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium. However, the talented southpaw has played some flabbergasting knocks in his previous innings for India but also faced a lot of criticism for his flop show against South Africa in the T20I series. It will be interesting to see whether the young wicketkeeper-batsman Pant will be able to perform better in the T20I opener against Bangladesh or not.
After a phenomenal performance in recently Vijay Hazare Trophy 2019, star Indian batsman Sanju Samson finally made his way to the T20I squad against Bangladesh for the upcoming series. The Kerela-born cricketer came into the limelight after his remarkable innings in the 2018 edition of the Indian Premier League. Since then it was no looking back for the right-handed batsman and in the next T20I series also he is looking forward to putting up a great show against all the Bangladeshi bowlers in front of the home crowd.
