OpeningBatsman posted a topic in ArchivesBangladesh won the toss and are batting first 102/2 in 22.1 overs Pretty good start.
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.
Trichromatic posted a topic in ArchivesBefore 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.
