India aims for redemption vs Bangladesh

India aims for redemption vs Bangladesh

India meets with Bangladesh with hopes to bounce back after their devastating loss during their 1st ODI. The second ODI match between these two teams will be on December 7, 2022, at 1:30 PM (GMT+8). It was the low scoring game that gave India a defeat, as Bangladesh posted 186 on board. However, the Indians still managed to reduce that lead to just 136/9, but Bangladesh is just too much for the Indians. Bangladesh will hope to score another win in this match while India will not make it easy for them as they aim for redemption.

Many expected that the 1st ODI match between India and Bangladesh will be an easy win for India, but Bangladesh proved them wrong. India’s batting ang bowling did not played well, which results to their very poor performance. Bangladesh on the other hand are very impressive and played unexpectedly on their 1st ODI. Their home court advantage is also a boost for Bangladesh as they have their fans against them. Additionally, Bangladesh has a good track record at home, which they proved in their previous fixture.

In both batting and bowling, India played horribly, getting bowled out foe only 186 times. In fact, they are still lucky that KL Rahul is with them because if not, things could have been worse for them. However, this performance can be the result of their ever-changing starters since their series against New Zealand. They do not have a permanent starters which is why each game, the players are adjusting. It is not a secret that India has a very strong batters, but on their last game, they look like a completely different squad. Coming into this game, they are hoping to finally get their rhythm, and avoid more loss, after losing their previous matches.

India depended on the usual guys like Rohit Sharma, who gave them 27 runs, Shreyas Iyer with 24 runs, and Washington Sundar who only had 19 runs. Moreover, no other Indian batter scored double figure. Even Virat Kohli had an off night with just nine runs.

If bowling have been India’s weakness in their first meeting, it is the other way around for Bangladesh as they drew strength from it. Their bowlers were outstanding in that first ODI, and they are hoping for the same results here. They only leaked 186 runs, making India see their loss with 41.2 overs. It was Shakib Al Hasan who led Bangladesh, picking up five wickets in 10 overs in just 36 runs. If Bangladesh continues to play this game, it will be harder for India to still pick up a win in the series.

Although guys like Ebadot Hossain, Shakib Al Hasan, and Mehidy Hasan Miraz played very well, there are also those who do not. Hasan Mahmud and Mustafizur Rahman failed to be as impressive as the others, failing to pick a wicket in this match.
