In the 40th match of the ICC World Cup 2019 at Edgbaston, India vs Bangladesh has a lot on offer on Tuesday (June 1). In the previous game against the Tigers won their match by 62 runs on Monday (June 24) at the Rose Bowl. On the other side, India lost their first game at the ODI showpiece by 31 runs against England.

In seven matches India has bagged 11 points, whereas, Bangladesh has seven points in as many games. All in all, it would be a crucial tie for Bangladesh, in particular.

Here’s Bangladesh’s predicted playing XI:

Liton Das:

Liton Das average 65 in three innings. He has amassed 130 runs so far at the ongoing World Cup. Given his ability to anchor the innings, Das would be eager to give an excellent start to the Tigers.

The senior batsman Tamim Iqbal has been proactive at the top. He would be eager to play an anchor’s role against India. The southpaw has a wealth of experience to face a top-notch Indian bowling attack.

So far, he has accumulated 205 runs in six innings at an average of 34.17 at the ODI showpiece.

Shakib Al Hasan has been remarkable with the bat and ball as well. He is third overall run-getter at the World Cup with 476 runs at staggering 95.20 in six matches to his name.

Also, he has ten scalps under his belt so far. In the previous game, he scored well-made fifty against Bangladesh to continue with his stupendous form.

Wicketkeeper-batsman Mushfiqur Rahim has been at his best while scoring for his team. Known as a vital cog in the wheel for Bangladesh, Rahim has the knack of stitching big partnerships. And so far he had done that, particularly alongside Shakib.

In the previous game, Rahim faced 87 balls for his 83 runs. Overall, he has aggregated a total of 327 runs at an average of 65.40.

Soumya Sarkar, who struggled at the top have been demoted in the batting order. It’s the high time for a talented batsman to make most of the opportunity by rising against the tide.

Despite struggling in the middle, Sarkar is capable of playing big innings. In six matches, he has garnered 111 runs.

Mahmudullah Riyad:

In five innings, Mahmudullah has managed to score 190 runs. With his average reading as 47.50, Mahmudullah becomes altogether threatening given at the fag end of innings.

The under-rated cricketer has all in his tank to blow away any strong opposition on his day.

Mosaddek Hossain:

All-rounder in the form of Mosaddek Hossain hasn’t been able to do much with the ball in particular. He has bagged three wickets from five matches.

On the other hand, Mosaddek managed 98 runs in four innings. Again it would be a litmus test for him while facing India in Edgbaston.

Mohammad Saifuddin:

The medium pacer Mohammed Saifuddin has ten scalps to his name in five matches. He has an onus on his shoulders. While bowling at top-notch batters, Saifuddin had to bowl his heart out in Birmingham against the No. 1 ranked team, Men in Blue.

Mehidy Hasan:

The young spinner Mehidy Hasan could yield much in the tournament so far. Given to his five wickets in six matches, Hasan would be itching to make an impact with the ball despite pitch pretty conducive for the batting.

The senior-most player and a bowler Mashrafe Mortaza had failed to pick wickets. But his poor show shouldn’t affect his all-important game against India. Despite a solitary wicket to his name in six matches, Mortaza will be keen to hit the right line and length early on.

Mustafizur Rahman:

Mustafizur Rahman has bowled his heart out, but at times he ran out of luck. Having ten wickets in six matches, Mustafizur would be crucial with his well-disguised slower ones.

Having tricks of the trade, Rahman on his day is unstoppable.
