“Our Bowlers will…”- BAN Captain Shanto issues warning to India ahead of IND vs BAN T20 World Cup 2024 Super 8 Clash


Team India started the Super 8 stage of the T20 World Cup 2024 with a comprehensive win over Afghanistan on Thursday. This match was played at Kensington Oval, where they registered a 47-run win.

With this, India have collected two important points. But the path to semis will get more difficult from here on. They will be facing Bangladesh in their next Super 8 fixture.

That match will be played on Saturday at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, North Sound, Antigua.

Team India will be preparing for that game and will look to get another win here. But it won’t be an easy game for them, as Bangladesh have troubled them in the past and have come very close to beating them on the big stage.

That’s what Bangladesh’s captain, Najmul Hossain Shanto, also indicated after losing the game against Australia on Thursday.

After the IND vs AFG clash, Bangladesh also took on Australia at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium.

Australia ended up winning the rain-hit game by the DLS method and registered atheir first Super 8 win by 28 runs in T20 World Cup 2024.

Bangladesh struggled to post a good total and managed 140/8 in the first inning. The big names couldn’t do anything, but the captain played a good inning with 41 runs.

Australia were 100/2 in 11.2 overs when the rain came, and they were announced the winner by the DLS method.

In the post-match presentation, Shanto talked about the areas lacking and also spoke about the next game against India on Saturday.

He said, It's very important for the top-order to get runs like we did today; that's a big boost, and hopefully the bowlers will continue their form. Looking for a good show against India in our next match.” Bangladesh will have an edge as they have already played the game at this venue, where they will face India.

Though India are strong favourite to win this game, Bangladesh have players who can turn things around and put India under pressure. This match will be important for Bangladesh, as they can’t afford a defeat here.

A defeat will virtually eliminate them from the ICC T20 World Cup 2024. On the other hand, India can guarantee a place in the semis if they beat Bangladesh in the coming game.

So it will be a crucial match for both teams in the T20 World Cup 2024 Super 8 stage.
