India hope to seal their place in the semi-finals of the ICC World Cup 2019, by knocking over Bangladesh on Tuesday. England brought India’s unbeaten run in the World Cup to a halt by beating Virat Kohli’s team by 31 runs on Sunday at Edgbaston in Birmingham. Bangladesh with 3 wins out of 7 matches, is seventh in the table. It finds itself in a ‘perform or perish’ situation. It has some players with stellar performances to their credit, including the all-rounder, Shakib Al Hasan.
The Bangladesh all-rounder stands tall at the top of ICC ODI rankings and at 32, is the third highest run-getter in the ICC World Cup so far with 476 runs to his credit. He has also bagged 5 wickets. Soumya Sarkar and Tamim Iqbal have given solid starts to Bangladesh in the tournament so far.
India will be leaning heavily on Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Hardik Pandya, KL Rahul and Rishabh Pant with the bat. The Indian bowling attack spearheaded by pacers Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami, assisted by Chahal and Kuldeep Jadhav, is a fearsome one and performed consistently well.
