Now it a golden chance for Pakistan to for taking a revenge. Pakistan must win the game by improving all the previous mistakes in last matches where they failed to perform well. However the weather conditions are not expected to ruin the game. Match will be played in Eden Gardens, Kolkata, and will start at 2:30 pm according to the time of Pakistan. Bangladesh has been unbeaten throughout the qualifier round of this T20 World Cup, which has accelerated the performance of the team. Being in the final in recent Asia Cup 2016, Bangladesh tend to move upward with a superb power. However Pakistan has step backed from their initial T20 status due to their some last poor performances in shorter formats.
GREEN SHIRTS ARE EXPECTED TO DO THEIR BEST:
Finallay Pakistan has entered Indian surface which was earlier in a doubt because of security issues. When the host country assured security for them, Pakistan flew to India where it will be playing its first match against Bangladesh on 16th March, Wednesday. Pakistan was at the second number in ICC T20 ranking but they have decreased their status by showing their pathetic performances. Recently they have lost a match by Bangladesh in their homegrond in Asia Cup 2016, which could transfer them to the final. The defeat had hisheartened every Pakistan’s lover. Now it would be a superb chance for them to win the game. It could be a “tit for tat” situation if Pakistan will play impressively and most importantly very consistently. The top order of Pakistan is a key factor due to which they lost maximum matches. Pakistan must assure themselves to play like real heroes of a country. Pakistan has outstanding batting and bowling line up but the fault is that they did not get benifit from them. The utilization of these treasures is necessary. Pakistan must execute the hidden talent on the surface. Green Shirts are expected to come with a following squad:
SQUAD: Ahmed Shehzad, Sharjeel Khan, Mohammad Hafeez, Sarfraz Ahmed (wk), Umar Akmal, Shoaib Malik, Shahid Afridi (C), Anwar Ali, Mohammad Sami, Mohammad Amir and Mohammad Irfan.
CONFIDENT BANGAL TIGERS:
After winning the last matches in qualifier round, Bangladesh is looking very much confident towards the game. They are going to collide with Green Shirts in Eden Park. Bangladesh have recently defeated Pakistan in the semifinal of Asia Cup 2016. Pakistan has learnt a lot from their defeat therefore they are expected to retaliate with a heavy power. Bangladesh is blessed with some superbly talented players like Tamim Iqbal and Shakib Al Hassan. Tamim is in an amazing form as very recently he has served in PSL where he played sky touching shots and remained one of the top class players in the league. In the last match Soumya Sarkar was very dangerous for Pakistan, therefore the bowlers of Pakistan must target these three batsmen first. Another big thriller will start today at 2:30 pm. A good chance for Pakistan to bounce back.
EXPECTED SQUAD OF BANGLADESH:
Soumya Sarkar, Tamim Iqbal, Sabbir Rahman, Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), Shakib Al Hasan, Mahmudullah, Mashrafe Mortaza (c), Mohammad Mithun, Taskin Ahmed, Arafat Sunny and Al-Amin Hossain.
