This is totally against the spirit of cricket. REMEMBER WHAT HAPPENED TO AUSTRALIAN SERIES 😂 YOU INDIANS CREATE YOUR OWN MOCKS.

When I saw Bangladesh defeats India I thought you were talking about Hunger index, Gender equality index, Sanitation index, GDP growth, life expectancy and so on. Then I noticed it is about not so important Cricket. Keep up the good Work 🤣

Speaking about the on-going rivalry Virender Sehwag said, “Bangladesh is a good side and the rivalry has snowballed since their win in the 2007 ICC Cricket World Cup and when we toured Bangladesh in 2015. However, Bangladesh hasn’t tasted success in the T20 format as India have consistently beaten them in all encounters between the two teams. The first match will be held on November 3rd at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium.
