India captain Rohit Sharma has said that the team sat down and spoke about how to handle certain bowlers ahead of their second ODI against Bangladesh. The Men in Blue lost their opening encounter by one wicket, going down 1-0 in the three-match ODI series.

Speaking at the toss, which Bangladesh won and opted to bat first, Rohit Sharma said Team India will have to play good cricket and explained the changes in the side.

“We have to play good cricket and I hope bowling first now, we can restrict them to a decent score and bat well. We have two changes. Axar Patel is back and he replaces Shahbaz Ahmed. Kuldeep Sen is not available for selection, so we have got Umran Malik in place of him,” said Sharma.

He added that the team went back to the drawing board to understand how to play in these conditions better and deal with certain bowlers.

“Going back to the drawing board and understanding how we need to play on this conditions, just the basic talk about what we need to do with the bat and how to handle certain bowlers. Had good training session yesterday, and hopefully we can come out and replicate those learnings,” Sharma added.
