After Superb win over Pakistan on 19th March 2016, Indian team is full prepared for India vs Bangladesh match which will be played on 23rd March 2016 at Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. India will eye on a victory by huge margin.
The M Chinnaswamy Stadium historically serves batting-friendly wicket, and India, who desperately wants to improve their Net Run Rate, will be eyeing a big win on Wednesday night. India are coming off an impressive win over their arch rivals Pakistan, whereas Bangladesh have lost both their matches in the T20 World Cup so far.
India va Bangladesh R20 World Cup 2016:
Date- 23rd March 2016, Wednesday
Venue- M Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru
Time- 7:30 pm
But one thing need to concern is, Bangladesh would not be easy opponent in T20 World Cup 2016 for India as Bangladesh had made Australian team to struggle to chase just 156 runs and that is the alarm bells ringing for us. Recently we have seen that Indian team is poor against quality spin bowling. India would like batsman-friendly pitches rather than spinning tracks.
Pitches are behaving differently in different parts of the country and same pitches have become more unpredictable, change as they do responding to conditions. The players of rival teams are more familiar with Indian conditions now due to IPL. Support of the home crowd hardly makes any difference to how the game plays out in the middle.
On the other pitch at Chinnaswamy Stadium, West Indian tweakers had delivered telling blows to Sri Lanka a couple of days ago. With a pattern to the behaviour of the two pitches more or less visible, the Indian side has to strategise carefully. Bangladesh realize spin is their strength and if at all they have any chance of reviving their chances in the ICC World T20, it has to be through the spinners.
Middle order batsman Suresh Raina, who has been coming in at No. 4 his form worrisome as well. He fell for a first-ball duck in the game against Pakistan and had a soft dismissal against New Zealand. For India, bowling and fielding remains their strength.
