IND vs BAN, Match 40, Cricket World Cup 2019, India vs Bangladesh LIVE streaming: Teams, time in IST and where to watch on TV and online in India

Whisper it softly, but Bangladesh are confident of defeating India at Edgbaston in match 40 of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 to take a giant leap towards their first trip to the semi-finals. They see the openings in India’s middle order, and believe that inroads can be made on a slow and low Edgbaston surface on Tuesday – the same on which England beat India on Sunday. Their drive to upend the pre-tournament is immense, even if the head-to-head record shows a decidedly one-sided history.

They know it can be done, the golden four of Bangladesh cricket – Tamim IqbalMushfiqur RahimShakib Al Hasan and Mashrafe Mortaza – all part of that famous upset over India in the 2007 World Cup. If Bangladesh beat India in the 2019 World Cup, it will not be an upset.

Beating India will not guarantee Mortaza’s team a spot in the final four, because for that to happen they need to get past Pakistan at Lord’s later this week.

Team news

India

The Indian team did not train on Monday at Edgbaston, the gap day between their two matches here. With Shankar ruled out of the World Cup and Agarwal yet to reach England, India will persist with Rishabh Pant at No 4.

Bhuvneshwar is available after missing three matches in a row, but India will likely play him against Sri Lanka.This match will be played on the same track as the England match, and on a slow track there is a strong indication that India could bring in Ravindra Jadeja as the third spin bowler. Playing Jadeja would lift India’s fielding and strengthen the batting, but who will go out?

Kedar Jadhav is one option, but that would deprive India of a batsman. After going for his most expensive figures in ODIs – and the worst by an Indian in a World Cup game – Yuzvendra Chahal is another candidate, but what message would that send to one of India’s frontline spinners?

India likely XI: 1 Rohit Sharma, 2 KL Rahul, 3 Virat Kohli (capt), 4 Rishabh Pant, 5 MS Dhoni (wk), 6 Hardik Pandya, 7 Ravindra Jadeja, 8 Kuldeep Yadav, 9 Mohammed Shami, 10 Yuzvendra Chahal, 11 Jasprit Bumrah

Bangladesh

This is Bangladesh’s first  game since June 24. They have been left somewhat frustrated, Mortaza admitted, at not being able to train regularly at Edgbaston because of the matches played here. The team practiced for two hours on Monday, and it was interesting to note that all of Bangladesh’s spin bowlers put in a lot of overs. It could be that Bangladesh add Sabbir Rahman in the lower middle order to bring in another slow bowling option. Soumya Sarkar can easily be used as the third seamer, as he was in the match versus Australia.

Mushfiqur, after a stint batting in the nets, received throw-downs in one corner of the outfield and repeatedly worked on hitting the balls into the offside and inside out. The plan was to feed him a steady stream of tossed up deliveries which he could drive with use of the feet.

Bangladesh likely XI: 1 Tamim Iqbal, 2 Soumya Sarkar, 3 Shakib Al Hasan, 4 Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), 5 Liton Das, 6 Mahmudullah, 7 Sabbir Rahman, 8 Mosaddek Hossain, 9 Mehidy Hasan Miraz, 10 Mashrafe Mortaza (capt), 11 Mustafizur Rahman

Pitch and conditions

The surface for this match is the same as the one used for India vs England, which means there will be plenty of turn on offer. The track is dry and tawny.
