IND vs BAN: Super 4 Match 6 Preview
The Indian team’s dream run in the tournament continues. The group stage began on a positive note with a comfortable 10-wicket victory over Nepal. There were some concerns about the batting approach in the rain-affected match against Pakistan, but those issues were addressed and rectified during the Super 4 stage. India went on to defeat Pakistan in a convincing manner, setting a historic record for the largest margin of victory in ODIs.
Under the leadership of Rohit Sharma, the Indian team delivered a spectacular performance, executing all aspects of the game to perfection. The batting display was exceptional, with the skipper himself notching his third consecutive half-century in the tournament. It was a rare occurrence to witness the top four batsmen all achieving half-centuries and centuries in a single match. Shubman Gill and Rohit Sharma provided a solid start and both reached fine fifties. The standout performances came from Virat Kohli and KL Rahul, who both notched brilliant centuries, propelling India to a formidable total of 356 for 2.
This match was played on a reserve day, and Pakistan’s bowlers struggled to make an impact, failing to take any wickets. India’s bowlers also excelled, especially against Pakistan, where they maintained tight lines and lengths. Kuldeep Yadav stole the show with his exceptional 5-wicket haul, while Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammad Siraj delivered economical spells.
The match against Sri Lanka was a critical one. After a steady start by the openers, the Indian batsmen encountered difficulties against the sensational spin bowling of Dimuth Wellalage. Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, and Rohit Sharma were dismissed in quick succession. KL Rahul and Ishan Kishan formed a valuable partnership in the middle overs. However, once they were dismissed, India faced mounting pressure and ultimately set a target of 213 runs. In response, Jasprit Bumrah led the way with his exceptional bowling performance. He dismissed Pathum Nissanka and later removed Kusal Mendis, putting India in a commanding position. Kuldeep Yadav continued his impressive form, taking 4 wickets, and India emerged victorious by a margin of 41 runs.
Bangladesh’s journey in the tournament has been marked by challenges. Their lone victory came against Afghanistan in the group stage, and thereafter, they struggled to find their footing. In the Super 4 stage, their encounter with Pakistan proved to be a one-sided affair, with Pakistan dominating both in batting and bowling. Only Shakib and Rahim managed to reach half-centuries, while the rest of the batting lineup couldn’t contribute significantly. Their bowling performance was also lackluster, and Pakistan comfortably chased down the target of 194 runs with 7 wickets in hand.
In their subsequent match against Sri Lanka, Bangladesh displayed improved cricketing skills. Their bowlers did a commendable job by limiting Sri Lanka to 257 for 9. Sri Lanka started strongly, appearing poised to reach 300, but Bangladesh’s bowlers staged a comeback to restrict them. In reply, Bangladesh’s batters faced initial challenges, but Towhid Hridoy displayed resilience with an excellent 82-run innings, attempting to fight till the end. Unfortunately, the support from other batsmen was lacking, and Sri Lanka secured a 21-run victory.
