He seems to always to rise to the occasion, and this is the time in the tournament when the best tend to only get better.
Bangladesh Players to Watch
There’s one name on Bangladesh that clearly stands out, and that’s Shakib Al Hasan. Shakib, currently the world’s top ranked all-rounder, has the Tigers focused on using the same strategy they adopted in their 2007 victory in the hope of producing another huge World Cup upset.
India Will Win If…
India will win if they can play their game, which means a continued strong showing from Kholi and Rahane. Kholi is a blaster who is in red hot form, while Rahane is a frustrating player to get out because he gives very little away, then when settled, he can score runs quickly and impressively.
Bangladesh Will Win If..
Look to Bangladesh, who’s a heavy underdog, to be aggressive and take chances, as they have nothing to lose. The pressure’s all on India here, and that should make for great live Cricket TV.
