This match is certainly going to be interesting as this time the Bangladesh team appears to be stronger than the last time. After all the return of Mashrafe Mortaza is a big threat for the opponent teams. However Fast bowler Nazmul Hossain has been replaced by Shahadat Hossain as he had injured himself during the practice.
But then Indians rule the matches, at least most of the matches. Let’s just hope that our players are prepared and are practicing hard now. As for now let’s just keep our fingers crossed and get ready to witness what the future has to offer to us.
