Bangladesh cricket team is now in India to play full series for the very first time. There was uncertainty over the series for one after another bad news but overcoming all the 1st T20I between two countries was held on Sunday at Delhi. Where Bangladesh beat India by 7 wickets for the very first time. But, the 2nd T20I between the two could be washed away as weather forecasts predicted cyclone could hit at Rajkot during the match.  

According to the schedule, the second T20 match of the series will be on November 7 at Rajkot's Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium. Weather forecasts said besides Saurashtra and the whole of southern Gujarat could hit by a severe thunderstorm.

Jayant Sarkar, Gujarat Chief Meteorological Officer told the news agency PTI that a storm could hit with 120km winds between Wednesday night to Thursday morning. Jayant Sarkar expressed concern that the cyclone could be in terrible shape.

If the cyclone hits, there will be heavy rains in Saurashtra and southern Gujarat in the days ahead and If this rain continues the 2nd T20I between Bangladesh and India will wash away.

Popular Indian commentator Harsha Vogel wrote about the future of cyclones and matches on his Twitter account. He said a dangerous alert had been issued for the fishermen on the coast of Saurashtra on November 6-7 due to a cyclone in Rajkot before the match. Hopefully, it will not be dangerous for the residents there. This year's weather is quite unpredictable.

Cricket fans will be happy if the play continues overcoming all the obstacles. Riyad and Co. are set to take on India in the second match and confirm the series keeping one match in hand.
