While there is a lot of anticipation around India vs Pakistan matches, the rivalry between India and Bangladesh has grown with every passing year. This has a lot to do with Bangladesh improving immensely in white-ball cricket over the last few years. The two teams are scheduled to face each other in the last Super Four encounter of the Asia Cup on Friday (September 15).
The result of this match will be crucial from India’s perspective as their place in the final will be at stake. On the other hand, Bangladesh are already knocked out of the tournament with two losses in as many matches against Pakistan and Sri Lanka.
It’s their batting that has performed very poorly in this Asia Cup and they will be looking to improve immensely against India.
They have returned with scores of 164, 193 and 236 runs in three lost matches (two against SL and against PAK) and Shakib Al Hasan and his troops will be looking to make the most of this opportunity and will be hoping t put up a fight against a strong Indian unit.
Meanwhile, this encounter will test team India players’ fitness who have been troubled with injuries to key players. They will go into this encounter after playing on three consecutive days.
Their marquee clash against Pakistan on Sunday spilled into the reserve day (Monday) after rain played spoilsport. Their next game was against Sri Lanka on Tuesday (September 12), which saw them play consecutively on Sunday to Tuesday.
Though Rohit Sharma and his men will be taking the field after resting for a couple of days, the nonstop cricketing action is likely to take a toll on them. However, with a place in the final at stake, expect the Men in Blue to come hard at Bangladesh who have nothing to lose in this match.
There will definitely be excitement around this match and here are the Bangladesh vs India where to watch details.
