“Cricket" India

India lost by 31 runs to England in their last outing. It was the first loss of the tournament for India and it was a rather dismal effort from them against the English. Most notably, their bowling faltered against the World Cup hosts as spinners Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvidra Chahal were dominated by the English batsmen. Chalal, in particular, was off as he had an economy rate of more than 8. India conceded 337 runs which proved to be too much for their batsmen.

On the other hand, it was a solid display from India’s batsmen. Their top order was impressive as Rohit Sharma hit for a century and Virat Kohli scored half of a century. However, both were dismissed at critical moments of the match and hence India wasn’t able to reach the target. As it stands, India has a total of 11 points from seven games and will need one more win to advance to the next phase of the competition.

These compose India’s squad:

Virat Kohli (capt), Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal, Shikhar Dhawan, MS Dhoni (wk), Ravindra Jadeja, Kedar Jadhav, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Hardik Pandya, KL Rahul, Mohammed Shami, Vijay Shankar, Rohit Sharma, Kuldeep Yadav.

“Cricket" Bangladesh

Bangladesh kept their World Cup hopes alive with a 62 run victory over Afghanistan in their last outing. Mushfiqur Rahim and Shakib Al Hasan were the leading batsmen for Bangladesh as each of the two scored half-centuries against the Afghans. Bangladesh scored a total of 262 runs in 50 overs and it proved to be enough to beat their opponents.

Al-Shakib also led his team in bowling as he took 5 wickets to make sure that Bangladesh would defend their total. Al-Shakib also played very economically as he gave up just a total of 29 runs in his 10 overs. He will have to be at his very best when they take on one of the top teams in this tournament.

Here are the members of the Bangladesh team:

Mashrafe Mortaza (capt), Abu Jayed, Liton Das (wk), Mahmudullah, Mehidy Hasan, Mohammad Mithun (wk), Mohammad Saifuddin, Mosaddek Hossain, Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), Mustafizur Rahman, Rubel Hossain, Sabbir Rahman, Shakib Al Hasan, Soumya Sarkar, Tamim Iqbal.

“Cricket" Who Wins?

India still needs to win one more game in order to secure qualification for the next round. You bet they will do anything to get it in this game, where they are heavy cricket betting favorites. On the other hand, Bangladesh needs to win this match to keep their tournament hopes alive.

No question, this is going to be a tough assignment for Bangladesh and they will need to be on top of their game to beat a powerhouse team like India. On the other hand, India lost to England in their last outing because of poor bowling. However, we know how good this team is and they’ve proven that throughout this tournament. It was just that India’s bowlers had an off-night against the British.

On the other hand, Bangladesh has a very good batting unit but their problem in this tournament has been poor bowling. That’s going to be a problem against India’s batsmen who were impressive against England. Rohit Sharma scored a century while Virat Kohli delivered a half-century during their losing effort. And given that this match will be played at Edgbaston in Birmingham which is a pitch that is good for batting, I’d have to go with India here. They are definitely a strong team in this tournament and will be too much to handle for Bangladesh. Prediction: India
