    Bangladesh did give India a scare, let’s accept that, but India managed to emerge victorious. Bangladesh become the fifth eliminated team and India join Australia in the semis with one more game to go. Looks good and does sound good for all Indian fans. That’s all we have for today. Until next time, it’s good night!

    Virat Kohli: “We experienced that when Hardik put under pressure has come back well in the tournament. He finds a way to contain runs and get you wickets, he’s really looking forward to do stuff for the team and that’s really helping his cricket. When he comes on to bowl he thinks as a batsman and that helps him to think, think what the batsmen could do.”

    Here’s the winning captain Virat Kohli: “I mean Bangladesh has played some really good cricket in the tournament. They deserve a lot of credit for the fight they put up, even till the last wicket I think they were in the game. We had to work hard for the win but very happy that we saw ‘Q’ (Qualified) in front of the team in the table now. Another game as an opportunity for us to do the same things we have done so far in the tournament, and I think that will keep us in the frame of mind heading towards the semi-final. And as I said, we are really really happy that we qualified for the semi-final with one more game to go.”

    Time for the captains now, first up, the losing captain Mashrafe Mortaza: “That was the match we had to win. We couldn’t make it but there was some good performances by Mustafizur. One of them had to go on and score 80-90. Bit of luck could have gone our favour. The tournament has been nice, exceptional performance by Shakib and Mushi batted really well right through. A batsman like Rohit Sharma in such form, but it happens in cricket and we cannot blame Tamim for that. We will try to play our best in the last game. They were here supporting us today as well.”

    Rohit Sharma: “I had a great feeling right at the start. The pitch was good to bat on. Initially wanted to take some time and then assess where we go from there. That’s how it has been for me at this World Cup. The first game against South Africa the conditions were challenging, so I had to take my time. Against England as well the pitch was two paced and wasn’t coming onto the bat as normally I would like to and they used the slower balls really well. But again batting first there is not pressure of the scoreboard. You come out thinking to be positive and that’s what I do. I was lucky. Fortune favors the brave. I never think about the short boundary. My game is all about piercing the field and once I am in there the idea is to put pressure on the bowlers. My mantra is whatever has happened in the past, keep it in the past. It is a new day, present day and I don’t try to think what has happened. That is very critical from a team’s point of view, the guys who are batting well should carry on and get the team to a good total. What has happened today has happened, I need to focus on the next game now.”

    For his fourth World Cup 2019 century, Rohit Sharma is adjudged the Player of the Match.

Hello and welcome to Match 40 ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 between India and Bangladesh at Edgbaston, Birmingham on Tuesday.

IND vs BAN MATCH PREVIEW

 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.

India, despite losing to England here in Birmingham on Sunday, are on track for a top-two finish. Theoretically, of course, Virat Kohli ‘s team can still not make the semi-finals if they lose to Bangladesh and Sri Lanka and it their net run-rate takes a hit. At second place on the World Cup table with 11 points, India need to win one of their remaining two group fixtures to enter the semi-finals.

Their campaign has been dented by the withdrawal of Vijay Shankar, and eyebrows have been raised by his replacement, the uncapped Mayank Agarwal. Shankar was picked for his all-round skills, and has been replaced by a batsman. A day before he was ruled out, Rohit Sharma reiterated that the Indian team management had no uncertainty about Shankar at No 4. Then Sanjay Bangar, the batting coach, backed Rishabh Pant to keep going at No 4.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar is fit for selection, but may have to sit out another match as India ponder a third spinner on a dry Edgbaston surface. Getting the right team selection has never been trickier for India in this World Cup, as they seek to confirm their semi-final passage against a very good Bangladesh outfit.
