  1. Bangladesh won the toss and are batting first 102/2 in 22.1 overs Pretty good start.
  2. BD win toss and elect to field. Defensive move, but sensible, given the shakiness in their batting away from home. Toyger fans are howling about Mushy's mistake, but I think that's because they over-estimate their own team. Captain knows better. I like the look of this pace bowler Roy - he went for a few runs already, but he looks the part. Don't know if he can put up consistent spells, but hits the deck. Hard to win tests if you are just going to depend on opponents making mistakes though. BD need to control the run flow, and then try and build a bit of pressure.
  3. Before start of semi-finals round, some considered such clash as contest between top 2 Asian teams while some considered it huge mismatch between two opponents. Now one thing for sure, when India take on Bangladesh on today at Edgbaston cricket ground, Birmingham, very few passionate fans would be able to relax with newly generated rivalry between two teams which has been constantly fuelled by statements, sentiments of fans and players as well as social media in recent times. Head to Head: India 25, Bangladesh: 5 In ICC tournaments: India 2, Bangladesh: 1 Bangladesh will look to win this match and get a place in final of an ICC tournament for the first time while India will continue their campaign to retain their title. Key Players India 1. Shikhar Dhawan - Probably one of the best batsman in the world when it comes to ICC tournament. He is already the highest run getter in this tournament and scored over 1000 runs at avg of 70 with 5 100s. 2. Virat Kohli - Captain and most prized wicket in LOIs. He acknowledged the strength of the opposition and will be well aware of areas when Bangladesh will hit hard. 3. Hardik Pandya - If India has to get to big total after regular strategy of starting caustiously then he has to play a role as big hitter as well as 5th bowler 4. Bhuvneswar Kumar - He will crucial in stopping Bangladeshi openers especially Tamim who has been in good form. 5. Bumrah - India needs to make sure that they do well at death Bangladesh 1. Tamim - One of the best all format opener in the world. He has been in very good form recently and Bangladeshi batting depends a lot on how he performs. 2. Shakib - Best ODI all rounder. He has been off-colour for some time, but in last match he showed why he is rated highly. He is probably best Bangladeshi player in history and can be very good with both bat and ball. He scored a match winning 100 against NZ few days back. 3. Mahmudullah - Scored a brilliant 100 against NZ in last match to save Bangladesh from a difficult situationa and propel them into semis of the tournament. 4. Mashrafe Mortaza - His captaincy has been huge difference so far. When NZ were looking to post a big total, he master stroke of bringing Mosaddek Hossain into the attack proved to be turning point. Whatever success BD has acheived so far, can be attributed to his captaincy too. Weaknesses India need to find wicket taking options in middle overs. This is one area where opposition can hurt them and as long as they manage to plug this hole it has been very difficult to dominate this Indian bowling line up who have decimated SA and Pakistan earlier. Slow opening can be a concern, but they have been using this strategy for quite some time and they have confidence in their middle order to provide necessary acceleration Bangladesh had weakness in their batting as it was dependent on Tamim for quite some time. Other batsmen haven't been in great form. Other issue which they might face in this match is their spinners who are generally ineffective against India. Mustifizur Rahman hasn't been in same form as he did at the start of his career. 300th Match Yuvraj Singh, who has been one of the biggest match winner for Indian in LOI is playing his 300th match.
  4. New Zealand and Bangladesh enter their final group match of the ICC Champions Trophy in Cardiff on Friday with the knowledge that even a win may not be enough to see either of them into the semifinals.

Hosts England have signalled their title intentions by cruising into the last—four stage following two convincing outings. Teams : New Zealand: Kane Williamson (captain), Corey Anderson, Trent Boult, Neil Broom, Colin de Grandhomme, Martin Guptill, Tom Latham, Mitchell McClenaghan, Adam Milne, James Neesham, Jeetan Patel, Luke Ronchi, Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee, Ross Taylor. Bangladesh: Mashrafe Mortaza (captain), Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim, Tamim Iqbal Mohammad Mahmudullah, Sabbir Rahman, Rubel Hossain, Soumya Sarkar, Taskin Ahmed, Mustafizur Rahman, Imrul Kayes, Mehedi Hasan, Mosaddek Hossain, Sunzamul Islam and Shafiul Islam. Match starts at 3pm IST.
  5. 14th Match, Super 10 Group 2: Bangladesh v Pakistan at Kolkata Mar 16, 2016 (15:00 local | 09:30 GMT) It’s has been just over one week since the dark wet night in Dhaka. In front of thousands the excitable Tiger fell meekly to the Indian hunter to the astonished and wailing Dhaka crowd. But a week is an eternity in the age of tontee-tontee. the tigers have recuperated and recovered stronger than ever. The tiger seeks revenge by once again trying to severe the hunter’s head and go on to become the king of jungle in the hunter’s own abode. Tigers enter super 10s with a cloud of suspicion over the legality of it’s right claw manned by Taskin Ahmed (though tigers already pointing to hunter’s dirty tricks department) but the jaws are in rude health with Tamim Iqbal the slayer of Markhors in formidable form. The tiger has already devoured leprechauns, bunch of springboks/kangaroos in guantanamo jumpsuits and more escaped markhors disguised as camels. Now the tigers face their first real test in their quest to world domination, they face their ex-brothers from the west, the Markhors, who they mauled with ease in the recent Asia Cup encounter. After much dilly-dallying and comedy nights the Markhors finally crossed the mountains and into the hunter’s homeland. To avoid little saffron terrors they migrated further east, to the safe havens of Mamata's secular hinterlands. After a decade of bullying his little tiger brother, the Markhor has had to cope with several counter-punches from it’s little brother. The tiger is no more a puny little brother. The markhor will be wary this time of the cat who can stand up on two feet and throw a punch! As ever the markhors come into another world tournament with imaginary “the odds are staked against us” which have made them into the perennial cornered markhors. But this time legendary markhor has claimed: “India mein humne humesha cricket enjoy kia, yahan ke logon se humein bahut pyar mila, itna pyar humein Pak mein bhi ni mila jitna yahan," This is an excellent strategic move to get the crowd cheering them against the vociferous tiger fans. Make no mistake, the markhors sharp horns lead by a battery of left arm quicks could easily overwhelm the tigers. Lead by none other than pretender to the title of King of Swing, Mohammed Amir, who has promised to make Rohit Sharma say “Jasprit Bumrah who??” once he rips out the tiger’s heart with his 150kph tunderbolts. Also the return of selfie-queen will bring stability to the top order. ICC T20i Rankings: Markhors (no.7), Tigers (no.10) Head to Head Wins: Overall (Markhors 7 - 2 TIgers), World T20 (Markhors 4 - 0 Tigers) looks like Tigers are looking for mauka mauka Key Battle: Amir v Tamim Amir: Bowling Career averages MatInnsOversMdnsRunsWktsBBIAveEconSR45 unfiltered252592.04638313/1820.586.9317.800Profilefiltered (last 12 months)7727.0118183/1822.626.7020.200Tamim: Career averages MatInnsNORunsHSAveBFSR1005004s6s unfiltered494951092103*24.81947115.3114312025Profilefiltered (last 12 months)13132390103*35.45286136.361103518 Weather: Good , 34°C, (0% chance of rain) Pitch: likely to be on slow side, par score 150.
