Bangladesh is hosting Pakistan for a three-match T-20 International bilateral series. Pakistan displayed a clinical all-around performance to register a riveting victory in the first T-20 match of the series. The dry pitch in Mirpur had truly led to a low-scoring encounter where the result was out after almost 40 overs of play. With this, Pakistan lead the series by 1-0 and would look to seal a series victory in the second T-20 itself. However, Bangladesh won’t make it easy for the visitors as they had earlier defeated top-notch sides including Australia at their home. Bangladesh will truly be aiming for a revival and take the series into the decider match. In this unprecedented scenario, it is difficult to predict a winner.
