Bangladesh hopes to maintain its home ODI winning streak

Bangladesh hopes to maintain its home ODI winning streak

It's simple to think of the first game as an upset. In spite of the fact that Bangladesh is ranked seventh and India is ranked fourth, the visitors have a history of dominating in this format; they have actually won 30 of the 37 ODIs played between the two teams. But if you look closely, you'll see that Bangladesh's victory in the opening ODI wasn't quite as unusual as it initially appears.

Since October 2016, the hosts have not suffered a home loss in an ODI series. In the meanwhile, they have easily defeated teams like Zimbabwe, the West Indies, Sri Lanka, and Afghanistan, and they have appeared more at ease in a format they enjoy playing. There is confidence in this format, as head coach Russell Domingo remarked. They bowled well against India the other night, and Mehidy Hasan emerged as a hero to save the game from certain defeat, but in all honesty, they would prefer a less tense victory this time.

A loss in the second One-Day International for India might result in back-to-back series defeats in Bangladesh, the most recent one occurring in 2015. Their strategy for dealing with left-arm spin would be the first thing they would want to get right. Shakib Al Hasan didn't use the arm-ball to confuse India for the first time. Even on their most recent tour, it was difficult to get runs against him, but Mustafizur Rahman stole the show with his incredible number of wickets. This time, Shakib is at the top of the rankings and will once more raise issues for India.

However, Mohammed Siraj's bowling in the first ODI can give the visitors hope. When Siraj finished his spell, their difficulties only became more severe because the other bowlers were unable to completely remove the tail. Can the group produce an all-around effort to force a decider in the series?

When: December 7 @ 12 p.m. local time (11:30 AM IST)

Exactly where: Dhaka's Shere Bangla National Stadium

Another night of raucous crowd support for the home team is what to anticipate. Spinners will once again have a say, and the team that bats better against them will make the decisions. To capitalize on the "sticky" nature of the pitch in those early overs, the captain who wins the toss may prefer to bowl first once more.

Cricket Betting:

What types of markets are there for betting on cricket, and how do you do it?

Cricket betting is very similar to betting on other sports. Using the bookmaker's odds, the bettor can wager on the outcome of a match together with other specific game markets.

  • Game results

Simply decide which team will prevail in the game. It may be done by intuition, the form, or the circumstances. It follows a similar structure to other sports and is rather routine.

  • Top hitter

Once more, this is very standard. Choose the player at bat who will score the most runs each inning or overall. Leading Hitter of the Game, Leading Hitter for Team A, and Leading Hitter for Team B are the three categories that can be used to categorize this.


  • Top pitcher

The best bowler is needed for the same procedure; choose the bowler who will claim the most wickets. Three markets can be distinguished: the best shooter overall, the best shooter for Team A, and the best shooter for Team B.
