Can the Blue Brigade outclass the Bangla Tigers ?

Antigua: India and Bangladesh are to clash on Saturday in the 47th match of the T20 World Cup 2024. On one side is the team captained by Nazmul Shanto, which will be out of the tournament if it loses this match, while on the other hand, with a win, Team India captained by Rohit Sharma will come very close to the semi-finals. After making a winning start in the Super 8, India now faces Bangladesh. India can make some changes in this match.

So far, the Rohit brigade has had the upper hand in the tournament, but history is witness that Bangladesh has given a tough challenge to India every time. Therefore, captain Rohit Sharma will not make the mistake of underestimating this match. Bangladesh team has lost its first Super 8 match to Australia. While India won a one-sided match against Afghanistan.

So far 13 T20 matches have been played between India and Bangladesh, in which Team India has won 12 while Bangladesh has won only one. India has played four matches against Bangladesh in the T20 World Cup so far and has won all four. This tournament has been mixed for Bangladesh so far. It won three matches in the group stage and lost only against South Africa. Now Australia has defeated it in the Super 8.

Talking about the importance of this match, the challenge here is more for Bangladesh, because this is the 7th match of the Super-8. In the race to reach the next stage of the tournament, the Indian team has won its first match. But Bangladesh had to face defeat, which has given a big blow to its hopes. There is also a possibility of rain in the tournament, so every match is very important for every team. In the group stage, we have already seen that the equation of the point table can cause a big upset. Therefore, no team would like to take a risk.

India eyes the semi-finals

The Indian team will also want to strengthen its claim to reach the semi-finals by winning this match, while Bangladesh, which lost to Australia on the same ground in the last match, will be looking for a comeback. They will enter the field with the intention of looking for their first win in the Super-8 and to stay in the tournament. Overall, the fans are going to get a lot of opportunity to enjoy this fierce match.

Team India can come with one change in this match. If this happens, Shivam Dubey may have to sit out. Samson or Tejaswi can get a chance in his place. The match between India and Bangladesh is to be played at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua. This match is to start at 8 pm on Saturday as per Indian time.
