The opening game of the Asia Cup T20 could be marred by rain. There was a light drizzle in Dhaka this morning and rain has been forecast ahead of India’s clash against hosts Bangladesh at the Shere-e-Bangla Stadium this evening.
There is also a chance that play might be delayed due to wet outfield.
Meanwhile, India would keep their fingers crossed and hope for Mahendra Singh Dhoni to take the field in the evening. He was present at both of the team’s practice sessions in Fatullah but he did not train.
Virat Kohli said yesterday that Dhoni’s absence would affect the balance in the side. Back-up wicketkeeper Parthiv Patel is an opening batsman but India have two in-form openers in Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan.
The persistent drizzle could also favour the seam bowlers and Bangladesh might just have the edge there. India’s batsmen, who have been in superb form this year, were exposed on a green surface in Pune against an inexperienced Sri Lankan pace attack.
Outside my window in Dhaka. This is going to be some shower! Luckily game 7 hours away!
