It looks like Indian cricket fans were too eager to witness Sanju Samson in action in India vs Bangladesh 2nd T20I. Meanwhile, India bowlers showed some better show in the 2nd T20I against Bangladesh, restricting them to 153-6 in the first innings. Openers Liton Das and Mohammad Naim made a great start with a partnership of 60 runs. Das and Naim both hit 29 and 36 respectively. However, the other batsmen could not keep up the momentum and could only score 153 in 20 overs in a high-scoring ground of Rajkot. Bangladesh lead the three-match T20I series 1-0.
