But the visibility is getting better as efforts are being taken to curb the level of pollution around the Stadium. The final decision of the match will be taken at 6.30 pm when the captains will walk out for the toss. The visiting team isn’t complaining about the pollution.  India Vs Bangladesh, Cricket Score 1st T20I Match.

Talking about the teams, the visitors have suffered from a massive jolt as their all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan has been banned by the ICC for a couple of years after he failed to report being approached by the bookies during one of the tri-series and IPL 2018. The home team has names like Shivam Dube and Deepak Chahar which will give them a scope of experimentation ahead of the T20 World Cup which is supposed to take place next year in Australia. Talking about India, Rohit Sharma will be leading the team in the absence of Virat Kohli.

All eyes will be certainly on the names like KL Rahul, Shreyas Iyer, Krunal Pandya and Rishabh Pant who will look to give their best in the three-game series. KL Rahul was last seen in action during the Vijay Hazare Trophy 2019 where he was in a good shape. Rishabh Pant has been failing consistently and would want to pull up his socks if he wishes to make way to the CWC 2020.
