India will play Bangladesh in the Super Eight stage of the ongoing ICC Men’s T20 World Cup at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in North Sound, Antigua, on Saturday, June 22. The Men in Blue know they cannot afford to take the Bangla Tigers lightly.

When these two teams met in a warm-up fixture before the tournament, the Indians beat Bangladesh comfortably. These two teams are arch-rivals and will desperately want to pick up a win. Bangladesh will want to get one over their neighbours.

Bangladesh have quite a few good spinners in their ranks, but India has the batters to counter them quickly and without breaking a sweat. Bangladesh must be at their very best.

Predicted Teams

IND: Rohit Sharma (c), Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant (wk), Suryakumar Yadav, Shivam Dube, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, Jasprit Bumrah, Arshdeep Singh, Mohammed Siraj.

BAN: Tanzid Hasan, Litton Das (wk), Najmul Hossain Shanto (c), Towhid Hridoy, Shakib Al Hasan, Jaker Ali, Mahmudullah, Rishad Hossain, Taskin Ahmed, Tanzim Hasan Sakib, Mustafizur Rahman.

Key Players

Jasprit Bumrah (IND): Jasprit Bumrah is perhaps the best bowler in white ball cricket in the world. He will be licking his lips in anticipation of having a go at the Bangladeshi batters in this game. There is hardly anyone in the world who can match Bumrah for his expertise today.

Tanzim Hasan Sakib (BAN): Fast bowler. With his impressive bowling, Tanzim Hasan Sakib has been one of the few bright spots on the Bangladesh side. He hopes to be at his best against India in this game and pitch the ball in areas that make him hard to hit.

Match Prediction

India know they have a massive advantage over their opponents in this game and will be keen on picking up a big win. However, Bangladesh realize they cannot be on moderate terms in this game and must bow exceptionally well to the top-heavy Indian batting lineup. Yet, India are the favourites to win.
