Bangladesh cricket team did well in the last ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 where the top-rated Bangladeshi all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan presented some extraordinary performance. And also, Mashrafee played his last World Cup as well. Now, in the Tigers squad, Shakib, Tamim and Mashrafee are absent but still, the hope from the team did not reduce. The Tigers are visiting India right now for a T20I and a Test series. They are playing against the home team and also made the charming start. Mushfiq’s amazing batting led the Tigers to the victory in the 1st T20I but in the 2nd match which took place earlier today, Rohit’s bat led India back to the series!

The T20I series consists of three matches and now, the series is a 1 – 1 condition. On the 10th of November 2019, the last and final T20I between them will take place in Nagpur. It will be also the title fixer match.
Team Bangladesh is visiting India excluding their big star Shakib Al Hasan. Basically, before their journey started, Shakib has been accused by the ICC. So, they have banned Shakib for two years. And before the next 29th October 2020, he could not return to the ground. On the other side, the top-rated Bangladeshi opener Tamim Iqbal also failed to go to India because of his family issue. And Mashrafee is out of the T20I and Test squad reportedly. But still, Bangladesh did something good in India at their inaugural match.
Earlier today, at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Rajkot the 2nd T20I between India and Bangladesh took place. The home team India won the toss and decided to bowl first. Liton and Naim made a good start for the Tigers and in 7.2 overs, they scored 60 runs. In that time, Liton was gone adding 29 runs. Mohammad Naim scored the highest 36 runs for the Tigers. Later, Soumya came and also added 30 runs. Finally, the captain of the team Mahmudullah scored another 30 runs and the Tigers innings ended up scoring 153 runs in 20 overs.
