ICC Champions Trophy 2017: Confident India face tricky Bangladesh,Semi-final 2

Birmingham: Professionalism will be hollowed against energy when shielding champions India square off with Bangladesh in the second semi-last of the ICC Champions Trophy, here tomorrow.

On paper, India are overpowering top choices against the nearby neighbors yet in a round of magnificent vulnerabilities, it will be reckless to exclude Bangladesh of condition.

Particularly after their persuasive 'dug out from a deficit' triumph against New Zealand that prepared for their semi-final berth.

India, after a clinical execution against South Africa, might want to keep up a similar power against a group that could turn out to be a famous banana peel for them.

Batsmen in form, bowlers on target and fielding top notch - Virat Kohli's men have considered every contingency up until this point and Mashrafe Mortaza's men - after their fortunate section into semi-finals - should pull off something truly extraordinary at the Edgbaston Cricket Ground tomorrow.

For India, absolutely a place in the summit round will fulfill them while Bangladesh are remaining at the cusp of what could be the greatest day in their cricketing history, in the event that they figure out how to pull off a triumph.

A triumph for India will be decent for which they won't in any way, shape or form get the credit that one gets for beating Australia, South Africa or England.

Be that as it may, an annihilation will prompt unparalleled feedback from fans and pundits alike with a portion of the awkward behind the scene happenings (like the claimed Anil Kumble-Virat Kohli crack) again raising their head.

It will be intriguing to check whether India hold Ravichandran Ashwin or bring Umesh Yadav back as his pace terrified the Bangladeshi batsmen amid their 240-run whipping in a warm-up diversion.

In the event of Bangladesh, their point will be to rehash the execution of the 2007 World Cup of opener in Port of Spain - still a 'Red Letter Day' in cricketing history.

Four individuals from that side - captain Mashrafe Mortaza, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim and Tamim Iqbal - are stars of this present line-up.

One day cricket is one organization where maybe Bangladesh have the most obvious opportunity with regards to beating India. This is a configuration which is neither too long like Test cricket where disposition is tested nor too short like T20 where brisk on-the-feet advancement is required.

Fifty overs is sufficient time in which the little country have picked up its magic in the previous 3 years fabricating a sensibly decent unit that can set up a battle.

They have indicated they could do that amid the 2015 home arrangement which they won 2-1, on account of the then young sensation Mustafizur Rahaman and his fatal cutters.

Be that as it may, the 50-over India versus Bangladesh challenges have never been shy of show - on account of the plainly energetic fans and media.

'Tigers', as they are alluded to have such an energetic after, to the point that their nation's media has been effectively ready to "wed" patriotism with cricket taking it to an out and out various level.

A fascinating story will uncover how cricket and patriotism has been between connected in Bangladesh's social life and even cricketers have been intentionally a piece of it.

It is learnt that the whole Bangladesh group was viewing the England versus Australia diversion together. When England's triumph guaranteed Bangladesh's capability, their strike bowler Taskin Ahmed began singing a mainstream melody with others participating in theme.

The melody is the to a great degree prevalent Bengali version 'Amra Korbo Joy' of Pete Seeger's notable 'We Shall Overcome'. The whole group participated in ensemble and they transferred the video on facebook, which procured a huge number of hits.

Bangladeshis regard cricket as more than an amusement. In the event that cricket is religion in India, it's past that in Bangladesh. It's a getaway from every one of the stresses of destitution, unemployment and other getting teeth issues.

The 2015 World Cup quarter-last against India at the MCG still stands out like a sore thumb for the Bangladesh players and fans alike.

Regardless they trust that Rohit Sharma was out as Rubel Hossain knocked down some pins a superbly lawful conveyance. One can't legitimize that given that regardless of the possibility that 40 runs were deducted from Rohit's last score of 137, Bangladesh would have still lost that amusement.

They trust that Mahmudullah Riyadh could have won them the match had Shikhar Dhawan's antagonistic claim for a catch at the limit line not been maintained by the umpires.

The one-run vanquish at Bangalore in an ICC World T20 coordinate a year ago still damages them terrible - a declaration to which was Mushfiqur Rahim's tactless tweet after India's semi-last takeoff.

The previous captain needed to erase it after directions from the Bangladesh Cricket Board.

While mentor Chandika Hathurusingha tries to ingrain some feeling of serenity playing the 'underdog card', there are individuals in Bangladesh camp, who as of now, in their fantasies, have set their foot in the last.

Simply man to man - Bangladesh are no match for the Indian group regardless of having quality in their positions.

The opening pair of Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma are much better than Tamim Iqbal or Soumya Sarkar. Be that as it may, Tamim has been in great shape in the competition notwithstanding a strike-rate in mid 70s.

Nobody in their fantasies would contrast Imrul Kayes or Sabbir Rahaman and Virat Kohli's class.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni is a legend in 50-overs cricket where Mushfiqur Rahim is as yet a conflicting player. Mahmudullah Riyadh is a gutsy match-victor yet Yuvraj Singh playing his 300th match is in an alternate group.

Mashrafe, Taskin, Rubel and Mustafizur are a decent assault on a given day and that is Bangladesh's most obvious opportunity to miracle India. Be that as it may, even there, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Hardik Pandya have greater quality.


India: Virat Kohli (skipper), Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Yuvraj Singh, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Kedar Jadhav, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Umesh Yadav, Ajinkya Rahane, Ravichandran Ashwin, Dinesh Karthik, Mohammed Shami.

Bangladesh: Mashrafe Mortaza (skipper), Tamim Iqbal, Imrul Kayes, Soumya Sarkar, Sabbir Rahaman, Mahmudullah Riyadh, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), Rubel Hossain, Mustafizur Rahaman, Taskin Ahmed, Mehedi Hossain Miraz, Mossadek Hossain, Sunzamul Islam, Shafiul Islam.
