India vs Bangladesh Live Streaming
Both India and Bangladesh have had their moments in the tournament so far and they have both played some good cricket. However, India are by far a better side going into this encounter. India won 2 of their matches to qualify for the semi final whereas Bangladesh won only 1 match and the one against Australia was washed out when they were on the verge of a humiliating defeat. But that doesn’t matter anymore as they will now be competing against India in the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 semi final for the first time. They will be looking to put in their hundred percent and end up on the winning side at the end of the day. India, on the other hand, will see an easy opponent in Bangladesh and will try to dominate them right from the start as the two sides meet at Edgbaston on Thursday.
Indian top order batting has been the real success story for them throughout the tournament and that’s where they derive all their strength from. Both their openers, Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan, have got runs under their belt and have played couple of big innings in the tournament. They start steadily and then capitalize on the opponent’s bowling right throughout. So, a solid performance will be expected from them as India move into the semi finals. Virat Kohli has also been solid as a rock for India and despite one bad innings, when he hot out for not against Sri Lanka, he has really dominated the opponent bowlers right throughout the tournament and is expected to do the same yet again. One player worth talking about here is Yuvraj Singh. The way he smacked the Pakistani bowlers in the first game was just spectacular. He looked in good batting form against South Africa as well. So, he will also be a real threat for the Bangladeshi bowling attack.
On the bowling front, India will again be faced with the decision who to play and who not to. Yes, their pacers have been doing great but Ashwin, who was brought in for the game against South Africa, also did a decent job. The dominant thought, however, is that India will be going with pacers this time again. Umesh Yadav might get a cap again tomorrow in an all-important game. But whoever plays, India still have a lot of firepower in their bowling line and they will surely have a few tricks handy for getting Bangladesh out no matter how flurry their batsmen may be.
Bangladesh will be expecting Tamim Iqbal to provide them with the thump that he has been providing right from the start of the tournament. Tamim played big knocks in both their initial games in the tournament but failed against New Zealand. He has already scored 223 runs in two innings and a big knock is again due on him. Besides, Bangladesh will be depending on 3 major batsmen in their middle order namely Mushfiqur Rahim, Shakib Al Hasan and Mahmudullah. While Shakib and Mahumudullah clicked for the first time in the tournament against New Zealand where they single handedly won the game for Bangladesh by scoring 114 and 102 respectively, we all know what Mushfiq is capable of. He played a brilliant hand of 79 in the first game against England and will have to take the responsibility here once again. If these batsmen manage to get going then it surely will be hard for the Indian bowlers to come back and dominate them in the game.
As for their bowling, that’s a big area of concern for them ahead of the big game. Even though their bowlers have done a pretty decent job in a couple of games, they also lost after scoring 305 in the first game against England where the bowlers had no clue how to restrict the English surge. But as they performed in the last game against New Zealand, they will go in with great confidence and will try to restrict India under 300. Mustafizur, Taskin and Mosaddek can prove to be their real hope in the bowling department if they bowl in the right channels and not leak away too many runs.
