Bangladesh have chance to seal first-ever series against India

12After their first series triumph against Pakistan earlier in April, hosts Bangladesh have an opportunity to register a maiden series win against their other sub-continent rival, India.

The neighbours will clash in the second of a three-match ODI series at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Mirpur on Sunday.

It is set to start at 3pm local time.

Bangladesh lead the series 1-0 with a convincing 79-run win in the first game on Thursday.

With their recent resurgence in the 50-over form, the Tigers have much to gain from the series triumph as a win will qualify them for a place in the 2017 Champions League.

The hosts, who are on a winning run in nine matches on the trot at home, are poised for another victory, even though they do not consider themselves favourites.

Although Bangladesh won the first match, Coach Chandika Hathurusingha is not too happy with his side’s performance. He thinks it can do much better.

The Sri Lankan wants Captain Mashrafe Bin Mortaza and Co to play with the authority they showed against Pakistan in all three departments of the game.
