zen posted a topic in Cricket TalkPreview Tomorrow (02/24) at 13.30 GMT the Bangladeshi Tigers are going to leap on to their relatively large in size neighbor. As is the tradition of the jungle, the pitch could be expected to be green. The highly talented and versatile Bangladeshi pace battery is eager to send chills down the spine of the Indian team. On the eve of the game, Legends Sir Vivian Richards and Shane Warne both finally conceded that the Tigers were good enough to beat a 11 consisting of best WI and Aus players. Bangladeshi captain, Mashrafe Mortaza, signaled his team's preparedness - "We had all our experiments done against Zimbabwe in January. There's no room for any such experiments in the Asia Cup. This is a very important tournament ahead of the World T20." Tigers coach Lion, Chandika Hathurusingha, has been concentrating on helping the Tigers build skills that are vital to success in the shortest format. In cricket size does not matter. The Indian team is visibly in awe of its great cricketing neighbor. It is reported that by just visualizing the threat from Bangladesh, Indian captain Dhoni developed back spasms. In fact, the team is probably confused about whether their captain will take the field tomorrow. Vice Captain Kohli who could face the challenge of leading his team to the wild and hungry Tigers had only this to say - "As many different teams as we play before the World T20, it gives us an opportunity to assess what the teams are like, what the balance is like, what their strengths and weaknesses are and where we stand against them." Indian Team Director, Shastri, after mustering some courage and with a heavy lump in his throat said - "We don't want to always come from behind. Sometimes we want to start also well. So hopefully we'll be looking to do that in this tournament," Teams: BANGLADESHI TIGERS (probable): 1 Soumya Sarkar, 2 Mohammad Mithun, 3 Sabbir Rahman, 4 Mahmudullah, 5 Mushfiqur Rahim, 6 Shakib Al Hasan, 7 Nurul Hasan (wk), 8 Mashrafe Mortaza (capt), 9 Arafat Sunny, 10 Mustafizur Rahman, 11 Al-Amin Hossain INDIAN HUNTERS (probable): 1 Shikhar Dhawan, 2 Rohit Sharma, 3 Virat Kohli, 4 Suresh Raina, 5 Yuvraj Singh, 6 MS Dhoni (capt & wk)/ Parthiv Patel, 7 Hardik Pandya, 8 Ravindra Jadeja, 9 R Ashwin, 10 Jasprit Bumrah, 11 Ashish Nehra In anticipation of the mauling that India is likely to get at the wild hands of the ferocious Tigers, Bangladeshi fans have already sounded the bugle: Meanwhile in India, the famous Tiger Hunter Sehwag finds it hard to understand what the fuss about Bangladesh is : While Binny feels that by not being in the squad to play vs. BD, he has lost the opportunity to pick up another 5-for: Stay tuned to find out whose blood would spray on the fields of Mirpur, whether the Tigers maul Ind or will Ind produce another Tiger Hunter PS Other Previews: vs Pak Markhors vs SL Lions
