What to expect against a stronger Bangladesh team from Indian team in INDvsBAN

Indian team will look to confirm their berth in Semifinals against the stronger Bangladesh team at Edgbaston, Birmingham. India lost to England in the last game at the same ground which raised questions over the team selection and form of few batsmen. Bangladesh has performed well so far in this World Cup with some amazing performances from star all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim, and others.

Weather is not going to be a worry in this INDvsBAN match

Weather is going to fine through the day and India will fancy the pitch and small boundaries there. The same pitch which was used in the England game will be used again which is an added bonus for India. They have earlier played on the pitch which will help them understand and plan the game better. Fast bowlers will use the cutters again if the pitch shows the dual nature.

Bhuvneshwar and Dinesh might get a chance

Indian team is expected to bring in Bhuvneshwar Kumar in place of Kuldeep Yadav and Dinesh Karthik in place of Kedar Jadhav. Mashrafe Mortaza who was struggling for fitness was seen at net practice so he is likely to play in the match.

Toss will be again an important factor in the match and batting first will be easier on the two-paced track. Stopping Shakib Al Hasan from scoring big runs will be the biggest task for Virat Kohli’s team and not giving wickets to Mustafizur Rahman will be a challenge too.
