World Cup Preview – India v Bangladesh: A must win game for Bangladesh

India, after losing their game against the host nation, would be worried as the injury issues in this world cup playing a big part

Bangladesh is playing after seven days, in a hope to win against the mighty Indians and remains in the race for the semis. India, on the other hand, would be hoping to win their last two games and hope South Africa to beat Australia in their final group game to take the number one position in the points table.

India, after losing their game against the host nation, would be worried as the injury issues in this world cup playing a big part. First, they lost Dhawan, then Bhuvi and now Vijay Shankar. This is making think tank to replan the strategies. They are also having an issue with their middle order, which is not able to contribute as per their experience. India’s best bet is to bat first and let the bowlers (India’s brightest part of this world cup) defend any given target.

Bangladesh needs to win this so that their game against Pakistan remain open for the final slot of the semi-final. They should know that the Indian team is struggling with injury and India’s middle order not clicking at all. So if they bat first and score anything above 300, then they have a great chance to beat India. However, it won’t be easy for them because of India’s excellent bowling line up.

Players to watch out

Rohit Sharma, having three centuries on in this tournament, a lot will depend on how he performs at the top. His partner KL Rahul looks out of sorts, and apart from Kohli, no one is among runs, he needs to bat for minimum 40 overs. Last time he played against Bangladesh in World Cup, he smashed a hundred, can he score again?

Tamim Iqbal, a big score is due from his bat in this World Cup. He played a vital role in Bangladesh’s win over India in 2007. This is a perfect opportunity for him to go out and score some runs for his team.
