CWC 2019 Match 40: India v Bangladesh Preview Dream11. IND vs BAN Preview Dream11 Prediction

12 years ago, Bangladesh’s shock win all but knocked India out of the World Cup. It was the day that truly ignited India-Bangladesh matches, with India bouncing back strongly in 2011 and then winning the 2015 Quarter Final.

That’s not where it ends. Bangladesh’s 2-1 series win in 2015 ignited things even further, especially with the Mustafizur “cutter” advertisement saga. However, this Bangladesh side look a more matured outfit, and proof is the way Bangladesh handled a pressure game against Afghanistan last time out. England’s win on Sunday has now made this a must-win match if the Tigers want to stay alive. Shakib Al Hasan, who is having the tournament of a lifetime, certainly deserves it. Can Bangladesh beat India?

India lost their first game of CWC 2019. Their game against England was another tough outing for its middle order, struggling for fluency to the extent that Sourav Ganguly didn’t hold back in commentary. Today is another good test for India, as even though they are favourites, Bangladesh will be out to give it their all. Will India knock their neighbours out of CWC 2019?

Key to a Bangladesh win

The big question for Bangladesh is whether their bowlers can step up to the plate. Indeed, bowling has been their Achilles heel in CWC 2019, often struggling for penetration en route to conceding some big totals. Can they get past Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli without too much damage and target India’s under-pressure middle order? With the track set to be the one used for the India-England game, Bangladesh’s spinners can benefit against the likes of MS Dhoni who has scored 41 off 87 balls vs spin in CWC 2019. However, they need a strong start, limiting the boundaries and building dot-ball pressure. Then, can they back it up at the death, where they have been one of the worst in the tournament?

And that’s before mentioning the task their batsmen face. Bangladesh’s batting has been their strong point in CWC 2019, with Shakib Al Hasan leading the way in a tournament for the ages. Today, they will come up against an India attack looking to make amends for an under-par outing vs England. However, one bowler who wasn’t under par was Jasprit Bumrah, so can Bangladesh play he and Mohammed Shami well, taking on other bowlers in India’s attack? What will Tamim, Shakib and Mushfiqur produce in a huge game?

Key to an India win

The enigma that is KL Rahul puts even greater responsibility on the shoulders of Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli. Both have enjoyed success against Bangladesh in the past, and will need to do so given the rest of India’s lineup isn’t quite in the best form. Rohit has three centuries in CWC 2019 – can he dominate Bangladesh early to push the Tigers into their shell? With Virat Kohli in fine touch – despite incredibly being unable to convert five consecutive fifties, India can bank on a strong start that they can take advantage of against a Bangladesh side that has struggled in the death overs.

Also, what should the make up of India’s attack look like? Kuldeep Yadav’s form is a concern, and given the very small boundary dimensions on one side, India could look to play just the one wristspinner. Indeed, India’s seamers up front will be key in making inroads into Bangladesh’s top order – in particular Shakib Al Hasan, who has the chance to go back to top of the CWC 2019 run-scoring charts. Then, as Bangladesh will look to do, India need to build pressure on Bangladesh’s middle-later order.

Pitch and conditions

A sunny day is forecast for Edgbaston. The pitch will be the same one used in the England-India game, so the team who wins the toss will surely bat first as it can slow down further as the day goes on.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar is fit for India and could come in for Kuldeep Yadav.

India: 1. KL Rahul, 2. Rohit Sharma, 3. Virat Kohli (c), 4. Rishabh Pant, 5. MS Dhoni (wk), 6. Kedar Jadhav, 7. Hardik Pandya, 8. Bhuvneshwar Kumar, 9. Mohammed Shami, 10. Yuzvendra Chahal, 11. Jasprit Bumrah

Mahmudullah picked up a grade one calf tear in Bangladesh’s win over Afghanistan last week. However, he is considered a good chance of playing after an eight-day layoff.

Bangladesh: 1. Tamim Iqbal, 2. Soumya Sarkar, 3. Shakib Al Hasan, 4. Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), 5. Liton Das, 6. Mahmudullah, 7. Mossadek Hossain, 8. Mohammad Shaifuddin, 9. Mehidy Hasan Miraz, 10. Mashrafe Mortaza (c), 11. Mustafizur Rahman

Stats and Facts

  • Head-to-head in World Cups: Matches 3, India 2, Bangladesh 1.
  • The last meeting between the sides in World Cups was the 2015 Quarter Final, where India won by 109 runs.
  • Mahmdullah needs 53 to reach 4,000 ODI runs.
  • Jasprit Bumrah needs five to reach 100 ODI wickets.
  • If Bangladesh lose this game, they are officially out of contention for the Semi Finals. If they win both their remaining games and England lose to New Zealand, Bangladesh will progress.

Match Prediction

India start as favourites. Rightly so, even with their very quick turnaround.

However, I have the feeling this might be a tight match. The kind we saw in the incredible match at the 2016 World T20. But, Bangladesh’s bowling is the worry, which is why I think India’s key batsmen might just be too strong. India to win, but this should be a good game of cricket.
