Live: Bangladesh opt to bowl first in the series decider against India
Unlike Delhi (air pollution) and Rajkot (cyclone), Nagpur fortunately does not possess any natural threat. And the series decider is all set to commence on the field.
The pitch looks good for the match. “There’s grass, but it doesn’t look like the ones that bind the surface together. Overall, it’s dry and crumby,” says Murali Kartik before the toss.
Bangladesh’s first T20I win over India came in the series opener in Delhi under Mahmudullah Riyad’s leadership, who guided his side to a seven-wicket victory. India, powered by skipper Rohit Sharma, struck back with eight-wicket win to square up the series in Rajkot.
