Mirpur: A confident Indian cricket team would look to keep the momentum going in its favour as it gears up to complete an expected series victory against minnows Bangladesh in the second of the three-match ODI series here today.
India skipper Suresh Raina
Having won the rain-truncated lung-opener fairly comfortably, Suresh Raina's boys are eyeing an unassailable 2-0 lead against Bangladesh.
The most assuring aspect of India's victory in the first ODI has been the form of the newly-formed opening pair of Robin Uthappa and Ajinkya Rahane.
Cheteshwar Pujara was the victim of an umpiring blooper and would surely like to make it count. Skipper Suresh Raina and Ambati Rayudu would be hoping to get another decent hit in the middle but obviously not at the expense of a poor opening start.
It will be interesting to see whether India make a few changes or not as far as their bowling department is concerned.
Medium pacer Mohit Sharma couldn't complete his full quota of 10 overs owing to an injury.
There is a possibility that Mohit might be rested and R Vinay Kumar gets to open the bowling with Umesh Yadav, who was the pick of the Indian bowlers on Sunday.
Vinay has been very expensive in the ODI format with the ignominy of being the only Indian to concede over 100 runs.
