New Delhi. The Indian cricket team has to play in the second match of the three-match ODI series against Bangladesh on Wednesday. In the first match played on Sunday, the host team defeated Team India by 1 wicket to take an edge in the series. The pair of Rohit Sharma and Rahul Dravid would like to win at any cost in this do or die match. Team India has practiced a lot before the second ODI and more emphasis was on bowling.
In the Mirpur ODI, the Indian team got defeated due to poor bowling against Bangladesh. In the match, after the bowlers brought the team to a winning position, they failed to create pressure in the last minute.
In the first ODI, Team India’s young fast bowler Kuldeep Sen got a chance to debut. Now it is expected that another pacer who made his ODI debut against New Zealand in the last tour with him can be given a chance.

BCCI has shared pictures before the two second ODIs, in which the bowlers were seen sweating profusely on the nets. The bowling coach was seen talking to Kuldeep in the nets and gave him some important tips. Umran Malik, who emerged as a new sensation, also practiced bowling fiercely.
Both these bowlers bowl at a speed of 145 kmph. Has bowled Umran at a speed of 153 kmph. Team India’s intention seems to attack the Bangladesh team with speed.
