India has the upper hand against Bangladesh Rohit and company eye the semi-finals

New Delhi. The Rohit Sharma-led Indian team will take on Bangladesh on Saturday. India will want to strengthen its claim for the semi-finals by winning its second match of the Super 8 of the T20 World Cup 2024. On the other hand, Bangladesh will be out of the race for the semi-finals with a defeat. India defeated Afghanistan by 47 runs in its first match of the Super 8, while Bangladesh was washed out by Australia in the first match of the Super 8. The Indian team will face Bangladesh in Antigua.

India has the upper hand in the record of both the teams against each other. But Bangladesh (IND vs BAN) is an expert in making upsets. And Team India is well aware of this. The strong contender for the title, the Indian team performed brilliantly against Afghanistan in the first match of the Super Eight stage. There is not much difference between the remaining two matches, so captain Rohit Sharma will hope that his star players return to form.

Surya's brilliance and Bumrah's deadly bowling, 5 heroes of India's victory… who defeated the 'Afghan fighters'

This is the Gujarati who… As soon as Ishant said this, the bowler took a wicket on the very next ball, Sidhu burst out laughing

Kohli and Rohit are continuously failing
Virat Kohli and Rohit started well but have not been able to play a big innings yet. Left-handed batsman Shivam Dubey was kept in the team to hit sixes in the middle and death overs. But he has not lived up to expectations so far. The form due to which he was given a place in the Indian team in the IPL has not been seen yet. He scored an unbeaten 31 in the group match against America but India won due to the efforts of Suryakumar Yadav. If he fails once again then the team management may decide to bring Sanju Samson.

It's good to see Pandya back in form
It was good to see Hardik Pandya back in form in the match against Afghanistan. India can use the same combination in bowling as well. Left-arm spinner Kuldeep Yadav got his first chance against Afghanistan and he proved to be effective. India's only goal in the West Indies is to win the title and a good performance against Bangladesh will be the next step in this regard as they will face Australia on June 24.

Bangladeshi batsmen disappointed
Bangladesh batsmen have disappointed so far. To keep the hopes alive, they will have to win at all costs. The team is missing a power hitter. The poor performance of openers Liton Das and Tanjid Khan has also increased their problems. The challenge before Bangladesh batsmen is to face Jasprit Bumrah who has been in great form so far and his economy rate has been 3.46.
