The men in blue led by captain Virat Kohli have had a roller-coaster of a ride in this tournament so far. Despite convincing performances against Pakistan and South Africa, the defending champions look far from world beaters. The bowling attack remains the weak link, and the team’s fielding too has been uncharacteristically poor in this tournament. In order to beat the Bangladesh team, the men in blue will have to bring their A-game.
Speaking of which, Bangladesh will carry forward the momentum from having defeated New Zealand in a do-or-die contest. After a stuttering start, Shakib Al Hasan and Mahmadullah pulled off the most unlikely of victories by scoring a century each. Being underdogs will surely help the side play with no fear, and they could give the Indians a run for their money.
