The 2nd match of the three-match T20I series between India and Bangladesh will be played at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot.

Bangladesh stunned India by 7 wickets in the first T20I on the to tour. However, it was not an upset despite the team having not beaten India in any of the last 8 T20Is before Sunday.

Bangladesh have always run the Men in Blue close in this format but have just collapsed at the last moment. But, it was not the case this time around.

For India as well, it was not a blip but a result of their strategies which they would need to reconsider. The team has persistent with the opening pair of Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan with Virat Kohli usually following them at number three. The team will have to make way for a big-hitting striker in the top three so that he can get India off to a flying start rather than the ones that they are getting off to right now.

Left-arm pacer Khaleel Ahmed has shown some promise but has gone for runs repeatedly in the death overs and will do well to retain his spot for the next match.

All things seemed to be falling in place for Bangladesh despite the absence of stars Tamim Iqbal and Shakib Al Hasan. Soumya Sarkar and Mushfiqur Rahim were the architects of the Bangladesh chase in the last match with Afif Hossain, Aminul Islam, Shafiul Islam and Al-Amin Hossain bowling tight line and lengths throughout.

India will now have to win both the remaining matches in order to win the T20I series.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:

India- Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Lokesh Rahul, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Krunal Pandya, Shivam Dube, Washington Sundar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Deepak Chahar, K Khaleel Ahmed

Bangladesh- Liton Das, Soumya Sarkar, Mohammad Naim, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mahmudullah, Afif Hossain, Mosaddek Hossain, Aminul Islam, Shafiul Islam, Mustafizur Rahman, Al-Amin Hossain
