India vs Bangladesh, 1st T20I, 2019: Match Prediction & Fantasy Tips

India vs Bangladesh 1st T20I Match Prediction – The first-ever full-fledged tour of Bangladesh to India will start with the shortest format of the game.

Bangladesh will play the 1st T20I of the three-match series against India on 3rd November 2019 at the Arun Jaitley Stadium, Delhi. 

There have been several occasions in the past when Bangladesh gave fierce competition to India. However, they never managed to win a single T20I match against India.

The “Men in Blue” will thus wish to continue this winning streak and try to make 9-0 against the visitors. Keeping the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup 2020 in mind, the Indian team must try their bench strengths and find the best team combinations.

The Indian skipper, Virat Kohli, is given rest for this T20 series. Instead, the stand-in captain Rohit Sharma will take charge of this team and try to bring results in favour of his country.

Here are the match preview, Dream 11 fantasy league teams, pitch report, weather conditions, match prediction for tomorrow’s match of India vs Bangladesh.

Match Details:

The Arun Jaitley Stadium (previously, Feroz Shah Kotla), Delhi, will host the 1st T20I of the 3-match series between India and Bangladesh on 3rd November 2019.

This T20I Match of India vs Bangladesh will start at 07:00 PM local time tomorrow (01:30 PM GMT) (07:00 AM IST).

Pitch Report/Condition:

Its been more than two years since the last T20I match played at Arun Jaitley Stadium, Delhi. The pitch of this ground always keeps the batsmen surprised with the uneven bounce factor. However, during the IPL2019, the wicket offered something to everyone. It is expected from the pitch to behave the same for this game as well.

Weather Conditions/Report:

The weather conditions in Delhi have been a hot topic for discussion in the last few days. According to weather reports, the humidity level will be high while the temperature will hover around 22 to 25 degrees. Due to the very high pollution percentage and AQI (Air Quality Index) in Delhi, there might be some difficulties for the players, especially the visitors. We can even see some players wearing masks during the game, and it wouldn’t be surprising at all.
