India have been in dominant form in the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 barring their loss to Sri Lanka. Kohli’s side have batsmen who are in form and bowlers who have delivered for the team. However, Mashrafe Mortaza’s side have shown that they are dangerous and are more than capable of causing an upset. Bangladesh will be aiming to repeat their 2007 heroics when they knocked India out of the ICC World Cup.
India’s top and middle order are formidable and they will be the key for India if they have to set-up a big total. Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli, Yuvraj Singh and MS Dhoni form the core and Bangladesh have their task cut out. For Yuvraj, this will be a special match as he will play his 300th ODI.
For Bangladesh, Mortaza’s team would be hoping that the bowlers do not concede plenty of runs. Among the batsmen, Tamim Iqbal has been in great form and he will be expected to provide the surge. However, Mahmudullah has shown his penchant to contribute in major tournaments and he will be a huge wicket, along with Shakib Al Hasan.
We have never taken any side for granted and we have the same mindset for the Bangladesh game - Virat Kohli’s clear message that India will not take Bangladesh lightly.
India will be under more pressure because of their huge population - Bangladesh skipper Mashrafe Mortaza tries to address the issue of pressure ahead of the clash.
