The 2nd Test Match of the two Match test Series will be played between India and, Bangladesh, at Sher-E-Bangla National Cricket Stadium Ground in Mirpur Dhaka, Bangladesh. The match will start at 9: 00.AM IST.
In the first match, Indian captain KL Rahul won the toss and decided to have a bat first. The Indian team had a sturdy start but later they lost 3 quick wickets and kept losing wickets at regular intervals. If not for the crucial partnership between Shreyas Iyer and Cheteshwar Pujara as well as Ravichandran Ashwin and Kuldeep Yadav, the Indian team wouldn't have got to a sizeable score of 404.
The Indian bowlers performed splendidly well to fold up Bangladesh in their first innings for 150 runs, leaving them 254 runs behind. But the Indian team did not enforce the follow on, batted again and declared on the score of 298 giving a target of 513 for Bangladesh to chase in the 4th innings. Bangladesh gave an enhanced performance in their second innings but were all out for 324, unable to save the match, elevating India towards winning the match handsomely with 188 runs.
Nevertheless, captain KL Rahul Could have taken a more attacking approach when the Indian team had dismissed Bangladesh for a score of 150. The Indian team could have enforced the follow on as Bangladesh were already under pressure and it would have been a much wiser call; they could have won in a more dominating Manner.
Now let’s talk about the second and final test match of the series. It looks like the Mirpur pitch is conducive for fast bowling and may consistently help the fast bowlers. It will be wise for both the teams to go in the match with one extra fast bowler. As you know that the toss is crucial in every Test match, it will be so in this test too.
Because batting in the 4th innings of a test match is a tough task for any team, so whichever team wins the toss Should look to bat first. The batting team Should be cautious for at least the first hour and gradually Play their shots latter. It's also important to be watchful In the first hour, just to gauge the conditions of the pitch and the movement of the ball from the pitch. It will be interesting to see if the Indian team Would be able to take an assailable lead of 2-0 and finish the year of 2022 With a win.
