As of now, Bangladesh scored 47 runs for 2 wickets at the end of the 11 overs. Siraj bagged the second wicket for India by dismissing Litton Das for 7 runs. Shakib Al Hasan and Najmul Hossain Shanto lead the batting attack for Bangladesh.
India needs to win this match in order to stay alive in the 3-match ODI series. India lost the first ODI match by a narrow 1-run defeat which receives lots of negative comments from cricket experts.
Indian cricket team also handed an 80 percent of their match fee fine for a slow over-rate. Apart from being criticised, India’s struggle in the international series raises the idea for a new T20I coach to which former Indian head coach Ravi Shastri reacted in a positive way.
The last ODI match will be played on December 10 at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, Chattogram. The two-match Test series will be played on December 14, and December 22 at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, Chattogram and Shere Bangla National Stadium, Dhaka.
Notably, India will be playing their last Test match of the series while BCCI hosts the IPL 2023 players auction on December 23.
