India’s hitters have a chance to shine against Bangladesh in the T20 World Cup

India may decide to play an out-of-sorts KL Rahul when it faces a relatively weaker Bangladesh on Wednesday in the T20 World Cup, despite the need for Rishabh Pant’s flare and bravado at the top.
However, India would undoubtedly start as the favourite in their penultimate Super 12 match. Games against Bangladesh in whatever format are usually like the famous “banana peel,” where slippage remains a possibility.

The coaching staff, especially coach Rahul Dravid, would have been left wondering about a few things after the infamous Indian batting line-up received a rude jolt on the fastest of tracks in Perth. The 22 runs in three games with a dismal performance against powerful sides like Pakistan and South Africa has once more called into question KL Rahul’s temperament and technique in important games against strong attacks. But Dravid has a lot of faith in his Bengaluru teammate KL Rahul, so he might keep putting him at the top.Rahul might find it easiest to develop his form against Bangladesh, one of the less successful T20 teams in this championship because of their weak bowling attack.

Mustafizur Rahaman, Taskin Ahmed, Mehidy Hasan Miraj, Captain Shakib al Hasan, and Hasan Mahmud make up the assault, which is respectable but by no means world-class. While Rohit Sharma looked fantastic during his fifty against the Netherlands, Suryakumar Yadav and Virat Kohli have already played outstanding innings. Even though Suryakumar Yadav and Pant give the batting order something extra, Pant’s removal from the starting XI is strange.The Indian team might perhaps benefit from Dinesh Karthik’s back problems. It might create a window for Pant to be added to the starting lineup for the match against Bangladesh.

Four left-handed players make up Bangladesh’s batting lineup: captain Shakib, openers Soumya Sarkar and Najmul Hossain Shanto, and middle-order batsman Afif Hossain Dhrubo. It will be interesting to see whether India sticks with Ravichandran Ashwin after he was mowed down by David Miller in the previous match or opts to use Axar Patel. The trio of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Arshdeep Singh, and Mohammed Shami holds a clear advantage over the batting lineup of the opposition team; therefore, India’s attack may not have much trouble handling Bangladesh.

A few statistics would support how Bangladesh’s batsmen have performed poorly in this tournament. They have won two games, one of which was a nail-biter against Zimbabwe and the other against the Netherlands. Shakib’s hitters have had trouble on bowler-friendly Australian wickets while playing against minor leaguers.

The only batter with more than 100 runs after three games is opener Shanto, and he has done so with a strike rate of 125, which is not at all acceptable for an opener.
Afif, a middle-order enforcer, scored the second-most runs. Afif and Mosaddek Hossain will be under pressure against an Indian assault of this calibre, so much will rely on how they bat in the later innings.
The side that chooses to bowl first may be able to take advantage of the famous Adelaide evening twilight, when the ball swings a little bit more than usual. Rohit Sharma’s choosing to bowl first and attempting to restrict Bangladesh to a low score may not be a terrible option with the three strong swing bowlers available.

Bangladesh aren’t viewed as a threat to top teams because of the sudden decline in performance of Shakib, their lone world-class player. Shakib isn’t in the finest frame of mind, which makes the decline in his batting tough to understand. Shakib has run-ins with the BCB even during the current World Cup.
It might just be meat and drink for the Indian batsmen during their matchup with the Bangladesh captain because he is still bowling some constricting left-arm spin, but the bite is no longer present.

The Indian team consists of Rohit Sharma (captain), KL Rahul, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Dinesh Karthik, Rishabh Pant, Yuzvendra Chahal, R Ashwin, Axar Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami, Arshdeep Singh, Harshal Patel, and Deepak Hooda. Shakib al Hasan is the team’s captain. He is joined by Najmul Hossain Shanto, Soumya Sarkar, Afif Hossain, Mosaddek Hossain, Mehidy Hasan Miraj, Shoriful Islam, Ebadot Hossain, Nurul Hasan, Litton Das, Taskin Ahmed, Hasan Mahmud, Yasir Ali, Nasum Hossain, and Musta
