In a big tournament like the World Cup, as soon as a team loses a single match, a sword hangs over that team. The team that loses is in danger of being out of the tournament. The Indian cricket team, after losing its previous match against South Africa, will now face Bangladesh in the T20 World Cup Super 12 match. Both teams (India and Bangladesh) will face each other at the Adelaide cricket ground. For the Indian team, victory is very important in this match. By winning this match, Team India would like to cement their place in the semi-finals.
Considering the points table, India and Bangladesh have the same 4-4 points. Both teams have played three matches. But on the basis of the best net run rate, Team India is in second place above Bangladesh, while Bangladesh’s team is at number three. In the last match against Zimbabwe, Bangladesh defeated Zimbabwe by three runs on the last ball. The Indian team won’t make any error of underestimating the Bangladesh team under the leadership of experienced all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan. We have seen a lot of ups and downs in this World Cup, so the Indian team will not make any mistake of taking Bangladesh lightly.
Ind vs Ban HEAD to HEAD
If we look at the statistics between India and Bangladesh, there have been a total of 11 matches between these two nations in T20 International cricket, where India has the upper hand. India has won 10 matches while Bangladesh has won only one. In such a situation, Team India, enhance with star players, should have no problem in registering an easy win against Bangladesh.
