    IND vs BAN Live Cricket Updates: As expected, an easy win for the hosts. Rohit Sharma’s 85 just made it very easy. Chasing 154, with dew around, Sharma made sure that there were no second thoughts on how to approach the chase as he just attacked from the word go. The 118-run stand for the opening wicket coming in 65 balls was just the tone India needed. This is what they missed in the previous game. Here, they got the start and hammered the bowlers. None of the bowlers were spared with the exception of Aminul Islam who got both the batsmen. With the dew around, Bangladesh could not do much and they just caved in.

MATCH HIGHLIGHTS India vs Bangladesh, IND vs BAN 2nd T20I, Rajkot, 7:00 PM IST, November 7

Toss at 7:00 pm IST – Match begins at 7:30 PM IST

India have not had the kind of success in T20s as they have enjoyed in the other two formats of late and that is evident from the results this year. They have already lost a series at home this year — to Australia — before drawing against South Africa who were otherwise hammered in Tests. In the absence of some senior players, including regular skipper Virat Kohli, the second game of the three-match series is an ideal platform for the fringe players to show what they are made of.

All this will depend on how much of an impact Cyclone Maha, which is expected to make landfall in Gujarat on match day, has on the weather in the city. In fact, heavy rains, associated with lightning, lashed the city on Wednesday evening. The wicket at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium is, however, protected with covers.
