India vs Bangladesh Match Prediction
Match Preview – Bangladesh vs India 2017 Semi Final Champions Trophy
This tournament has witness more up sets and draw back consisted of rain and coming up the teams like Pakistan and Bangladesh, while the exit of New Zealand and Australia at earlier stage. Bangladesh have got the potential to knock out an opposition like India as they did in the T20 World Cup last year at Indian home ground, while Bangladesh also gave a very tough time to India in the quarter final match of ICC Cricket World Cup. Such an impressive history of Bangladesh head to head against India.
Bangladesh is having a powerful confidence and yes, their confidence is on right behalf as they have been unbeaten so far as per their momentum is much higher. Bangladesh must know the fact that they are no more juniors in cricket and are the old side with win big tournament win. Now the 2nd event win by Minnows is not easy to get through because the team that is opposition (India) pretty aware of the big-match atmosphere.
India is not an easy side to defeat, their all departments including bowling and fielding are in form. Master weapon of India, the batting lineup is too much dangerous at the moment, openers have performed pretty well against Pakistan and Sri Lanka giving a big and solid start. On the counter side, Indian seamers are proving their abilities especially at batting suitable pitch conditions.
If Bangladesh makes it’s position clear for the final match that is possible, then the credit won’t be taken by the Indian mistakes as Bangladesh is a quality side now and only they have to achieve the ICC event title. India is quite an experience team especially for semi final stage as they are going to play their 6th semi final out of 7 ICC event they have played in last years.
Mustafizur Rahman is the man who made his debut against India and that was an excellent cricket debut by any Bangladeshi cricketer, but this time he is facing troubles as he picked up only 1 wicket in his 138 deliveries during on going event. Jasprite Bumrah is also a young star of India proving himself quite a dangerous bowler, but fruitful too. The way Bumrah played against South Africa is a pretty dangerous showoff.
There are too many players from both sides that are yet to be discussed, but this entire event is been full of set backs and frustration. Bangladesh can give a tough time to India, while India would definitely defend their Champions Trophy title aggressively. Their middle order and top order batting lineup is the master weapn. On the counter side, Bangladesh used their four seamers against New Zealand, but now they could bring some off spinners against India this match.
