India vs Bangladesh 2nd ODI Live Streaming Star Sports Information

In the midst of a little spoil sport from the rain God, we are still lucky to have this India vs Bangladesh ODI live on television. ESPN Star Sports bagged the rights very late and telecasted the first match live in India. Thanks to them we all in India can enjoy India vs Bangladesh 2nd ODI live streaming on Star Sports and live telecast on Star Sports TV channels in English and Hindi commentary.

The above image may upset the cricket fans a bit as weather threat is looming over today's ODI match. It is really hot out there with chances of thunderstorms and rain in the day. The first match was already affected by rain but thanks to Duckworth Lewis method, we atleast had a result.

India certainly has an upper hand considering the rain threat. Toss would play an important role. If India bats first they can put a big total on board. If they bat second they have a strong batting line up to chase Bangladesh total even in presence of Duckworth Lewis calculations.

Let us check some good performances from the 1st ODI. Bangladesh batted first and the prime performers in batting were:
Anamul Haque 44 (60 balls)
Mushfiqur Rahim 59 (63 balls)
Shakib Al Hasan 52 (58 balls)
Mahmudullah 41 (44 balls)

In terms of Indian bowling first, following were the stars in the first ODI:
Umesh Yadav (3/48)
Amit Mishra (2/55)
Parvez Rasool (2/60)

While chasing, India got a flying start as Uthappa scored 50 (44 balls) and Rahane scored 64 (70 balls). Shakib again shined with two Indian wickets but while India scored 153 from 24.5 overs they were already ahead of Duckworth Lewis method target. Rain stopped play and India were declared winners.

Players like Uthappa, Rahane and Raina may bat well again. Mushfiqur and Shakib are worth a watch from Bangladesh. Two debutants in last match Akshar Patel and Rasool are promising youngsters for India. Tamim and Pujara are good batsman and it seems they would play well to cover up their naughts from first match.

Bangladesh may leave out Ziaur Rahman and include Taskin Ahmed who has a better pace. A good news from Indian team management is that Mohit Sharma is fit to play. So India may play an unchanged XI.

Cricket fans have had a great conversation on ESPN Cricinfo match preview where they argued on who is a better batsman Rahane or Pujara. Well they both have a great temperament. Rahane may claim to be a better player for shorter versions with quick running between wickets and good fielding. 

Enjoy the second ODI between India and Bangladesh and not to forget there is good cricket going around the world. England Srilanka first test ended in a superb draw. New Zealand has won first test against West Indies and they are already into the second test against the home team. Enjoy these matches with live cricket streaming Star Sports.
