IND vs BAN T20 World Cup 2024 Match Up

India (IND) will be up against Bangladesh (BAN) in the 47th match of the T20 World Cup 2024 at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua.

India and Bangladesh have a history of producing thrilling encounters in World Cup competitions, although India enters this match as the clear favorite given their current form and dominant 12-1 head-to-head record against Bangladesh.

The Men in Blue will be looking to secure a victory in this crucial clash, which would bring them one step closer to clinching a berth in the semi-finals. Their recent performances have been nothing short of spectacular, showcasing a perfect blend of batting prowess and bowling finesse.

On the other hand, Bangladesh finds themselves in a must-win situation. The Tigers will need to pull off an upset against their strong opponents to keep their hopes alive for a place in the semi-finals. Despite being underdogs, Bangladesh has shown resilience and the ability to rise to the occasion in high-pressure situations.

Let’s explore five interesting matchups to watch in IND vs BAN.

  1. Rohit Sharma vs Mustafizur Rahman

Rohit Sharma is a player to watch against Bangladesh, having dominated their bowling attack well in the past. He poses a significant threat to Mustafizur Rahman, who is a key bowler for Bangladesh in the initial and death overs. Sharma has scored an impressive 122 runs at a strike rate of 169.44 against Rahman, despite being dismissed thrice in 72 balls.

2. Virat Kohli vs Mustafizur Rahman

Virat Kohli got a start in the last game against Afghanistan but couldn’t convert it into a big score. However, with an impressive average of 96.50 against Bangladesh and a dominating matchup against their strike bowler Mustafizur Rahman, Kohli’s confidence should be high. Fans can expect to witness a big show from Kohli’s bat, which seems to be just around the corner for the Indian batter.

3. Suryakumar Yadav vs Shakib Al Hasan

Suryakumar Yadav is coming off a fabulous knock against Afghanistan in his previous game, scoring a blistering 53 runs off just 28 balls. With a wide range of shots in his arsenal and the ability to score boundaries from the very first ball, Suryakumar may face a challenge from the experienced Shakib Al Hasan. In their four meetings, Shakib has managed to keep Suryakumar relatively quiet, conceding just 41 runs in 39 balls and dismissing him twice.

4. Hardik Pandya vs Mustafizur Rahman

Hardik Pandya has been quite impressive in the T20 World Cup so far, rebounding well after a rare failure in IPL 2024. However, in the upcoming clash against Bangladesh, he needs to be cautious against the clever death bowler Mustafizur Rahman. In their six meetings, Mustafizur has kept Hardik in check, conceding just 24 runs off 18 balls and dismissing him twice.

5. Shakib Al Hasan vs Arshdeep Singh

Shakib Al Hasan has had a disappointing season with the bat in this tournament, and his difficulties are likely to intensify when he faces Arshdeep Singh on Saturday. The veteran all-rounder is yet to score against Arshdeep, having been dismissed once in the mere two deliveries he has faced in their sole encounter.
