Colombo: A new-look Indian team will aim to recover from the five-wicket loss against Sri Lanka in the opening match when they face Bangladesh in the second match of the Nidahas Trophy Twenty20 International (T20I) cricket tri-series on Thursday.
Kusal Perera's brilliant 66 off 37 balls and some crucial contributions from the middle-order helped Sri Lanka beat India in the first game.
After the Indian batsmen put up a decent target of 175, their bowlers failed to make a mark as the hosts hammered them all around the park.
On the other hand, Bangladesh will take on the field without their regular skipper and all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan, who is injured. In his absence, Mahmudullah will take charge.
This could be an advantage to India if the Indian players stuck to the basics.
