BAN vs IND Match Preview
Bangladesh bowled well to pick up regular wickets and could have actually kept India down to an even smaller total. Shakib Al Hasan ended up with five wickets, Ebadot with four, and all the bowlers were very economical. It is clear that Bangladesh is going to be hard to beat. It has a decent bowling lineup which is well-suited for these conditions and its batting is average. Players like Shakib Al Hasan, Litton Das, Mustafizur Rahman, and Najmul Hossain Shanto can easily help Bangladesh pull off a series victory.
Virat Kohli is one of the batters that we think could do well and KL Rahul is also in decent form. India's best ODI batter this year has actually been Shreyas Iyer. The bowling lineup is a bit lopsided but Mohammad Siraj has continued his good showing in recent matches.
There was some moisture in the pitch in the first match but that would have dissipated by now. There has not been much rain in Dhaka over the last few days and the forecast is also clear.
A slow pitch that could get slower as the match goes on is likely. Something in the region of 260 should be seen as being very competitive.
Bangladesh Loves Playing At Home
Bangladesh has not done too well against India in the recent past but at home, its record is quite decent. It has won two out of the previous three ODI's against India in Bangladesh. It has also won two series against India while playing in Bangladesh.
India may add another batter in its lineup but apart from that, no major changes are expected.

We think the teams are quite closely matched and we could see Bangladesh win another match. India's squad is a bit lopsided and it could have trouble getting its team right.
Shreyas Iyer - Iyer has been in great form in the ODI format and is brilliant against the spinners. A must-have in the lineup, Iyer is also a good option for the Dream11 captain.
Mahidy Hasan Miraz - We saw how effective he can be with the beat but he is also a brilliant spinner. He could be slightly lower-owned than Shakib Al Hasan but provide almost equal value.
Litton Das - The Bangladeshi opener is going through one of his best phases as a batter. He loves playing against India, scored 41 in the previous match, and a big score seems around the corner.
