India vs Bangladesh 1st T20I Live Streaming: When and where to watch live telecast
India vs Bangladesh 1st T20 Live Streaming, telecast: Bangladesh would be looking to launch their first-ever victory over India in the shortest format.
India and Bangladesh will aim to find the perfect balance and winning momentum as they take on each other in three-match series starting on Sunday at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in New Delhi.
The issue of poor air quality was also raised in Bangladesh’s team discussions but the visiting skipper Mahmudullah Riyad said that it’s time to shift focus on cricket since they have no control over weather conditions.
A public health emergency has been declared in the NCR following rising pollution levels in the region due to stubble burning incidents in northern states of Haryana and Punjab.
“We have not played here, when we came here, there was smog, we all know. But players have practised the last three days, trying to adapt to the conditions. It’s not within our control, we have to focus on our cricket,” said Mahmudullah ahead of the T20I series-opener.
The visiting skipper added that he enjoys captaincy and does not consider it as a burden. He was asked to lead the side when their skipper Shakib Al Hasan was handed a ban for not reporting to the ICC the corrupt approaches made to him during the Bangladesh Premier League.
“I think the word (burden) that you said, I don’t think that way. It’s a great opportunity for me to lead the team. I have done it before a few times in T20s and Test as well because Shakib missed a few times. We will have to play as a team, as a group we need to use our opportunities and execute our skills in the game.”
Rohit Sharma, who will be the stand-in captain in the absence of a rested Virat Kohli, acknowledged that Bangladesh is now a strong cricketing unit with some mature players.
“All these years we have seen how Bangladesh has performed not just at home but also away. They have always put us under pressure. There is no way we would look at this team differently,” the stand-in skipper said.
“I understand there are two key players (Tamim Iqbal and Shakib) missing but they still have quality in their squad which can upset any team on that particular given day. There are matured cricketers in their side,” Sharma added.
The weather on Sunday, according to Accuweather, will feature intermittent clouds till around 6 pm, following which, there will be hazy conditions as the match progresses. But, no real rain disturbance is expected. The temperature in Delhi is expected to float between 27 degrees, the maximum, and 23 degrees minimum.
f pre-match press conferences were anything to go by, the first T20I of the three-match series between India and Bangladesh will be focused around two things — the absence of Shakib al Hasan and the weather conditions which will be there when the two teams meet at the Arun Jaitley Stadium on Sunday.
The air quality has deteriorated to severe levels in the past one week and has cast doubts over the match. There has been smog all over the stadium, forcing many in the Bangladesh camp to wear masks while conducting their practice sessions.
However, as Russell Domingo and Vikram Rathour maintained, there’s nothing that both the teams can do about and all they can eventually focus upon is playing the game.
For the visitors, it would be about coming over the loss of Shakib and Tamim Iqbal and pose a challenge to the Indian side, which has been quite a dominant force across formats in the past two-three years.
