India has qualified by winning 19 out of the 20 matches while Bangladesh hasn’t won any game so far but they have qualified by reaching the group stage as well as finishing ahead of Nepal. India last made it to the knockout stages when they beat Pakistan by three wickets on September 2, 2021. ICC MEN’S T20 WORLD CUP
After qualifying, we can also see that Indian batsmen are going to be playing against spinners and it is very important as their batting line-up are also strong but this game is a little more difficult for them because Pakistan has a lot of pace and pace bowlers like Jasprit Bumrah. In terms of bowling, Javed Miandad will face off with Wahab Riaz who is one of the best fast bowling options. India should beat Bangladesh in all departments with great effort. If any sort of scorecard for this game will be released then you will know it better than we can tell you right now, so stay tuned till then.
Here is our point list of what India needs to do to wining the competition:
1st two points
This game is very tough for both teams, each team needs to start preparing immediately and if India’s preparations are good then they can get an early lead and in which case they’ll have the edge over Bangladesh and its chances of qualification on Day One. So India will need to play an aggressive approach and create partnerships between players. Aiden Markram and Rohit Sharma will be working together to create more scoring opportunities so even skipper Virat Kohli can contribute to his teammates’ goals. It would be a big boost for India if Kane Williamson plays alongside Marcus Stoinis. Both of these guys are good assets and they can give the team more options at the top.
They can put many balls in the air and take the ball away from Bangladeshi’s bowling and the same thing can be done by Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, and Shardul Thakur. That’s how much impact they can have on the opposition’s field. But if other players like KL Rahul or David Warner start performing well then they can change the picture of this match also. Apart from batting, other aspects are equally important for a strong team like running. When Dhoni will be fit in full form, he can play alongside Marcus Rashford and that will give India a better combination at the back and in front. So once they know the pitch then chances of victory will increase.
2nd two points
After that, the focus should be on defending your boundaries. This match has the quality of taking the ball away from a player by giving them time and space. But unfortunately, this doesn’t work every time for Bangladesh as well. Even if spinners try to get on the wrong side then they are not able to play accordingly. Their fielding should also improve and they can stop some batsmen with their hard catches.
Batting aside, there is nothing much to say about the field condition because both teams are doing average pitches but the pitches will gradually deteriorate as there wouldn’t be any dew, and the grass cover will stay dry. So even though it looks bad but on the bright side, conditions are pretty fair for us. Also, the weather might be not that suitable for some batsmen. So they might need to consider getting fast bowlers because spinners could be expensive. But the bowlers will be having time to prepare and plan accordingly before the arrival of a dew and grass cover.
3rd two points
It’s no secret the likes of Joe Root will be looking forward to contributing to the attack and defending his team’s boundaries. Although the game isn’t as simple as one vs one. Nowadays spinners aren’t give enough time and space. All of the games of cricket nowadays are dominat by seamers and then speedsters and if Bumrah goes with a different approach then it will not just make the game more complicated but also more complex to read.
He also has all the power tools from the modern age, he could switch formats with ease and keep the opponent guessing. And with the presence of MS Dhoni around, he can easily execute in different ways. On the other hand, Shakib Al Hasan had been disappointing for the past few years. But his performance on Sunday will turn things around and his experience will surely help him get better. His return to international cricket will be vital for his mental strength.
There is also another factor to his overall fitness and whether he can complete the comeback process with all due skill and confidence. He has already proven his ability to bounce back and will do the same on Thursday. In terms of bowling, Haris Rauf has proved he is an extremely capable and skilled bowler, he has also shown his experience and potential in past tournaments as well. So barring those, other players like Mustafizur Rahman, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, and Tabish Khan have similar qualities. We don’t know if they will have that capacity to carry a bat with such high hopes or not. Because the final of IPL is important for everyone. If one company loses, another company gets as well. Where is the next Women’s World Cup 2022?
4th two points
The biggest challenge for the tournament will be the balance of power in the middle order with captain Virat Kohli. However, he can still contribute by opening the innings as well. On Saturday, there were talks that he may miss the rest of the season but this isn’t confirm. He was playing fine and it’s too late now to complain about anything. What about his captaincy? Will a Steve Smith replacement be available? Only time will tell.
Maybe R Ashwin is the best batter in world cricket on that day and he can replace Sunil Narine and be part of it. Similarly, for MS Dhoni, it’s not a big deal as long as he fulfills his duties. As far as fielding goes, India will look to get the most out of Kuldeep Yadav’s services. He should be the best fielder out of all Indian batsmen. And if Ish Sodhi is available then India should have someone ready to fill up the blanks and replace Ravichandran Ashwin.
5th two points
The fielding aspect is quite impressive as both sides are creating chances with multiple plans and fields, keeping track of the field daily, and then exploiting weaknesses, and making it less attractive to counterplay. Even though conditions aren’t favorable, with the number of overs and fields, the contest is bound to become very entertaining. And as much as this looks promising, it will depend on how effective the field is and the bowling plans of both sides.
