Dhaka: Mar 16, 2012

 

India take on Bangladesh in the fourth match of the Asia Cup 2012 at Dhaka. India come into the match a confident unit after winning their opening game against Sri Lanka.

 

Bangladesh too will be fairly confident – although they lost to Pakistan, they competed hard and nearly pulled off an upset. A victory for India will more or less seal their spot in the finals and virtually knock Bangladesh out of the tournament.

 

The 50-run victory over Sri Lanka was just the kind of start India needed in the continental tournament after being quite literally thrashed during an over-three-month-long tour of Australia.

 

The team’s batsmen, who were hopping about in misery on the pacy tracks Down Under, found comfort in the familiar sub-continental environs and made enough for their bowlers to come through despite leaking runs early on an unhelpful pitch.

 

But one man, whose woes seem unending is Tendulkar. The 38-year-old right-hander, who has almost every international record under his belt, has been without a hundred for over a year now.

 

The much-awaited 100th international ton has proved so elusive that it has raised concerns as to whether the stat is hampering Tendulkar’s form to an extent and the seasoned cricketer would be desperate to get the monkey off his back.

 

Tendulkar’s determination can be gauged from the fact that he turned up for an optional net session yesterday where only three of India’s 15-member squad turned up.

 

Tendulkar has gone 33 century-less innings, which is just one less than his longest barren spell ever.

 

Gautam Gambhir and Virat Kohli have successfully carried their good one-day form from Australia to this tournament as well and both scored their 10th international centuries to make that point against Sri Lanka.

 

Skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni also got some much-needed feel of the conditions when he pushed himself up the order against the islanders to fire an entertaining 46-run knock.

 

Suresh Raina too seemed to be recovering from the disaster Down Under in the batting-friendly conditions here.

 

Teams:

 

India: Sachin Tendulkar, Gautam Gambhir, Virat Kohli, Suresh Raina, Rohit Sharma, MS Dhoni(w/c), Ravindra Jadeja, Irfan Pathan, Ravichandran Ashwin, Praveen Kumar, Ashok Dinda

 

Bangladesh: Tamim Iqbal, Nazimuddin, Jahurul Islam, Mushfiqur Rahim(w/c), Shakib Al Hasan, Nasir Hossain, Mahmudullah, Mashrafe Mortaza, Abdur Razzak, Shafiul Islam, Shahadat Hossain
