SHOWDOWN – SUPER EIGHT – MATCH DAY 22

Ireland played their last match of the Cup yesterday and today’s match will be the last for Bangladesh. They are up against the West Indies, a team that will be looking to salvage some pride after their disastrous run in the Super Eight stage. It will be interesting to see the line-up for the Windies, if skipper Brian Lara will play or not. Wish Lara steps up and lights up this World Cup with his brilliance, even though it will be a little too late.

Our predictions:
Bangladesh v/s West Indies
AKG: West Indies
MJV: Bangladesh. If they bat first, a score of around 200 would be a fighting total to defend once their three left-armers come on to bowl. The shot selection of some of their batsmen, including the classy Mohammed Ashraful, is awful. Aftab Ahmed is a dozen runs and done kind of batsman at the moment.

Match scheduled to start at 1900 IST on SET MAX (English) and SAB TV (Hindi).

  1. It’s a shame what happened to Bangladesh. I hope the world steps up and helps them.

  2. We must encourage any country that is new to official cricket. Any counry which receives offical status has dismal record initially. Remember the performance of New Zealand in the 1950’s and of Sri Lanka in the 1960’s. Pankaj Roy-Vinoo Mankad record of first wicket partnership was made against NZ in this period (1950’s) only. (Now SA has done the same Vs BD). SL had even beaten us in a Test match in the late 50’s before they received the official status.
