Bangladesh opt to bowl first against India in T20WC Super 8 clash

DHAKA, June 22, 2024 (BSS) - Bangladesh captain Najmul Hossain Shanto won the toss and sent India into bat first in their second match of the Super 8 phase of T20 World Cup at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua today.

The match turns out to be a 'do or die' clash for Bangladesh to keep their semifinal hopes alive after a 28-run defeat to Australia on DLS method in their first game.

"We would like to restrict them (India) to a small total and chase it down," Shanto told the broadcaster after the toss. "We know condition, the wind factor, hopefully we can execute. Good wicket. 150-160 is a good score."

Bangladesh made one change from the previous match with Jaker Ali returning to the side, replacing fast bowler Taskin Ahmed. It means Bangladesh bolstered their batting strength, going into the crucial game.
India meanwhile started the Super 8 phase with a 47-run victory against Afghanistan and a victory against Bangladesh would help them make a giant stride towards the semifinal.

The Men in Blue however remained unchanged from the previous game.
