It feels like they haven’t stopped for rest in 2019, but India are back out on the cricket pitch this week for a T20 series against the visiting Bangladesh. As the teams seek to find their stride in preparation for next year’s T20 World Cup, they’ll both be keen to see some big wins and notable individual performances. See how they get on – from wherever you are in the world – with an India vs Bangladesh live stream.
India vs Bangladesh – where and when
The dates, times and venues for the three-match T20 series are as follows:
1st T20 Arun Jaitley Stadium, Delhi – Sunday, November 3
2nd ODI Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Rajkot – Thursday, November 7
3rd ODI Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium, Jamtha, Nagpur – Sunday, November 10
Each match starts at 7pm local time. So that’s 1.30pm GMT.
With three matches over the week, the players will be desperate to impress captains Rohit Sharma and Mahmudullah and the national selectors with less than a year until the World Cup in Australia. Sharma has been in absolutely devastating form with the bat, but expect India to rotate their team here as they look to discover which players can make a big impact Down Under.
And big shock…they finally lost a game! Bangladesh took first blood in this T20 cricket series in Delhi, chasing down a target of 148 with three balls to spare. They barely seemed to miss banned superstar Shakib Al Hasan at all, as wicketkeeper Mushfiqur Rahim knocked a magnificent unbeaten 60 from 43 balls to get the Tigers over the line.
