Indian cricket team led by the skipper M S Dhoni has arrived in Dhaka already in the midst of immense security for the first match again the co-host Bangladesh. The 15 member Indian cricket team is escorted by rapid action battalion commandos and police personnel to the Sheraton Hotel in two vehicles. India will stride into this match glowing with the knowledge of having made very good use of the warm-up matches. While, in the game against Australia, they tested their ability to hold fast to a match no matter the match summary thus far, against the Black Caps, they gave vent to their repressed batting force. Their bowling stood out on both occasions, notwithstanding the absence of their bowling friend, father and confidante Zaheer.
On the other hand Bangladesh’s fielding was a point of contention against Pakistan, as they dropped as many as four catches. The team’s coach Jamie Siddons, disappointed, was thankful that this kind of thing had happened before the game on 19th. They will need to be at the top of their game, and higher, against a rampaging India. Bangladesh’s fortunes depend greatly on opener Tamim Iqbal’s mood and form. Pace bowlers Shafiul Islam and Rubel Hossain both are in good touch, if only that Hossain is slightly on the leakier side.
