The road to redemption for Indian cricketers might just be a bit more tougher than what is expected as multiple factors stand in their way of clawing back to keep the series alive by restoring parity.
The first and foremost is Bangladesh's performance of late. If anyone thought that making it to the last eight of the ICC Cricket World Cup was a fluke, they were proved completely wrong by Mashrafe Mortaza and his bunch of talented youngsters as they whipped Pakistan 3-0 at home.
The 'Tigers' once again roared as they crushed a full- strength India side fair and square in what was a lop-sided contest for the better part of the match.
The second factor which is also equally significant is skipper Dhoni --- his form has not been great for quite some time and now the tag of 'Captain Cool' has taken a dent in the recent times.
