Pitch Report

“It’s arguably among the bigger grounds in England with huge square boundaries and also straight at one end. Only behind the batsman at one end is a bit short. There is no wind either and hence, hitting won’t be that easy. The surface looks dry and even though there was some rain, conditions should remain the same. There was a lot of help for the spinners in the last game and that should remain the same as the same pitch is being used.”

Mortaza speaks

“We like to bat first as it’s a used pitch, so want to put runs on the board. Two changes - Saifuddin and Mosaddek in for Rubel and Sabbir. The pitch here has been different from the others, has been slow and spun a bit. It’s a used pitch as I said and that’s why we wanted to bat.”

14:42 hrs IST

Naib speaks

“We want to bowl first. Conditions look good for bowling and we played a game here, so we know the pitch. In the second innings against India, it looked alright throughout and this looks similar.

Mohammad Nabi - an island of calm

“In the middle of all this chaos and blood churn, Mohammad Nabi wears an aura of insouciance. Bat resting against his shoulder, the Afghan batsman scans the field. There are no creases on his forehead or furrows between his eyebrows. His breathing is normal and presumably, so is the beating of his heart. But the most normal thing about Nabi is his cricket—in a sport filled with superstars and superheroes, Nabi is the only human being. He plays for Afghanistan, but who he really represents is you and I.”

Bangladesh predicted XI

Going into the fixture against Afghanistan on Monday, Bangladesh would look to make a batting change and a bowling change as well, to give themselves the best chance.

Here is Bangladesh’s predicted XI for the match against Afghanistan.

12:42 hrs IST

Gulbadin has something to say

Afghanistan are already out of the tournament after losing all their six matches so far while Bangladesh are still in the reckoning with five points from six matches. The Tigers will need to win against Afghanistan to remain in contention for a semi-final berth.

“Hum to doobe hai sanam, tumko lekar doobenge (We are already drowed darling, but we’ll take you with us),” a smiling Gulbadin said when asked about the match against Bangladesh.

12:38 hrs IST

Why Bangladesh still have a chance

These are the qualification scenarios facing the different teams and Bangladesh need to win all their matches. This and much more here.

12:33 hrs IST

Bangladesh aim for the semis

There is mutual respect, there is an intense rivalry and there are proud players - Afghanistan have not had a memorable World Cup so far, but they gave India a massive scare in their last fixture. Bangladesh have been brilliant, their batting has shone but they have problems with their bowling. Both teams are confident, both teams are flawed and there is also a history. All these elements make this tie a really mouth-watering prospect, and Bangladesh would want to emerge with a win to bolster their smi-final qualification scenario.
