Ahead of the second T20I clash in front of the home crowd at Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Indian cricketers are looking forward to return the favour back to Bangladeshi tigers with a successful win. However, Rohit Sharma-led team faced the rage of the cricket fans after their humiliating seven-wicket defeat in the T20I opener. But now the men in blue are all set to roar back on Thursday. It will be interesting to see how the players of both the teams will perform in a worth-watching match.
The stand-in skipper of India, Rohit Sharma expressed his feelings before the match in the a recent press conference. He said, “pressure is just on the team to perform, as simple as that. Not a particular department. You’ve lost as a team, you’ve not lost as a bowling unit. So the focus will be on the team. The batsmen need to get the job done, the bowlers need to come out and take those crucial wickets”.
Here’s check out some of the brilliant players to watch out for at Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot during the second T20I encounter between India and Bangladesh:
The stand-in skipper of the Indian National Cricket Team in an ongoing three-match T20I series, Rohit Sharma failed to register a big score at home soil against Bangladeshi Tigers in the previous T20I encounter. But now he is all set to break all ceilings with his blockbuster performance in the do-or-die clash. In the upcoming second T20I encounter in Rajkot, all eyes will be on Hitman Rohit Sharma. It will be interesting to see how will he play against Bangladesh.
The swashbuckling batsman of blues Shikhar Dhawan was the only player who scored the maximum runs for India in T20I opener at Arun Jaitely Stadium. But in the second T20I encounter when it is a now or never situation, he can not afford to take any risk. So he will be aiming to go big with his bat at Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium against destructive Bangladeshi pacers.
In the first-ever victory of Bangladesh over men in blue in T20I format on Sunday, star player Mushfiqur Rahim played a crucial role for tigers. He was the one-man army for Bangladesh who singlehandedly hunted down the whole Indian squad. In the upcoming T20I battle also Rahim is looking forward to do the same at Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium. So he will be a key player to watch out for.
