IND vs BAN: The T20 World Cup 2024 witnessed Team India take on Bangladesh in the Super 8 stage in Antigua on June 22. Winning the toss, skipper Shakib Al Hasan decided to field first and get themselves a score to chase in the beginning.

The relationship between India and Bangladesh in cricket has often been marred by off-field drama, with Bangladesh frequently voicing concerns about India’s financial dominance in the sport.

Team India Starts Super 8 Stage With a Win: In the ongoing World Cup, India stands out as a formidable cricket power and a strong title contender. The Men in Blue showcased a professional performance against Afghanistan in their opening Super Eights match. With just a travel day between their remaining two games, they hope that underperforming players will step up.

At the forefront are openers Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma, both of whom have managed starts but failed to convert them into significant innings, with their attempts to increase the scoring rate yielding minimal returns.

Another player under pressure is left-hander Shivam Dube, chosen for his ability to hit sixes in the middle and death overs. However, the form that secured his World Cup spot during the IPL has eluded him, and he has yet to make a substantial impact. Despite an unbeaten 31 against the USA in a group match, it was Suryakumar Yadav’s performance that proved decisive. Another failure might prompt the team management to consider Sanju Samson for the middle order.

A major positive from the Afghanistan game was Hardik Pandya’s cameo. Known for his powerful hitting, the all-rounder effectively demonstrated his abilities on Thursday.

IND vs BAN Pitch Report: This will be the second-afternoon game at this venue. In the previous match, South Africa chose to bat first and posted a formidable total, which the USA team couldn’t chase down. The captain winning the toss will likely opt to bat first, as batting in the second innings on Antigua’s abrasive surface is challenging.
