Bangladesh vs India- Previews and Betting Tips
Bangladesh were on top of the world after dodging a narrow defeat against India in the series opener. India were asked to bat first by the hosts and got off to a poor start with the score being 92/4. It was a top-order batting collapse for India but KL Rahul stood strong at one end to ensure to get India a good total.
However, his 70-ball 73 could only manage to get India to 186 without even playing out their 50 overs quota. Shakib al Hasan was the pick of the bowlers. He used the conditions perfectly to bag 5/36. Ebadot Hossain too, contributed with his 4/47 that helped restrict the Indian batters.
India had a huge task at hand but had the bowling line-up that could produce miracles and that’s what happened. Deepak Chahar sent Najmul Hossain back to the pavilion on the very first ball of the innings. Each and every bowler chipped in with wickets and bowled stupendously. India managed to pick up 9 wickets and get the opposition trailing at 136/9. However, a blissful bowling performance went in vain as KL Rahul’s expensive drop of Mehidy Hasan cost them the match. Mehidy Hasan played a heroic 39-ball 38 run knock to help Bangladesh claim a 1-wicket win and go 1-0 up in the series.
Despite this close call, we predict India to win the upcoming encounter. India are used to such wickets and will come out with a better plan to take the match away. On occasions like these, we recommend our viewers enjoy some betting experience and put their cricketing knowledge to good use. Three-way, Match winner, over and under, and in-game betting are some options we recommend that will provide the best returns on investment. Although, we advise you do your research before placing a bet.
The hosts would look to go unchanged as they must keep moving on with their strengths. The bowlers will be the deciding factor for the tigers in this fixture. Courtesy of his 5-for, Shakib al Hasan now has 8 wickets in his last 4 games at an economy of 3.77. Mehidy Hasan will be the game-changer for the team as he is crucial with both, bat and ball. He has a sum of 18 wickets in his past 10 matches with an economy of just 5.47. As for the batters, they need to step up and take responsibility. Skipper Litton Das has looked in fine touch. His 41-run knock has helped him get to 318 runs in the past 10 games. He averages 53.00 and will be a nightmare if he gets going. He will be accompanied by Mahmudullah in the lower order, who has 270 runs to his name in the past 10 matches. There is plenty of experience in this line-up with the ability to put up another upset like the previous game.
Squad: Litton Das(C), Mushfiqur Rahim(wk), Najmul Hossain Shanto, Yasir Ali, Afif Hossain, Mahmudullah, Mehidy Hassan, Shakib al Hasan, Ebadot Hossain, Taskin Ahmed, Mustafizur Rahman
Meanwhile, India would be planning the perfect revenge for what could have been a massive win first up. Rohit, Shikhar, and Virat, as the most experienced batters, need to take responsibility to put India in a strong position. Shikhar Dhawan has amassed 289 runs in his past 10 one-dayers and averages well over 30. A lot of eyes will be on youngster Shreyas Iyer, who has impressed many with the bat. He has amassed 344 runs in his past 7 games at a whopping average of 86. On the other hand, the bowling department seems very reliable. Courtesy of his 3/32, Mohammed Siraj has taken 10 wickets in his past 6 games. He will be accompanied by Shardul Thakur, who has 9 scalps in his past 7 matches. This Indian team is filled with talent and has the capability to win any match-up.
Squad: Rohit Sharma(C), KL Rahul(VC), Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, Shikhar Dhawan, Kuldeep Sen, Washington Sundar, Shahbaz Ahmed, Shardul Thakur, Mohammad Siraj, Deepak Chahar
