Ahead of the much-awaited clash between India and Bangladesh in the second semi-final of ICC Champions Trophy 2017, Bangladesh camp is identifying India’s weak and strong links. Bangladesh are very confident about their chances in there semi-final and they want to attack Virat Kohli led Team India in the big game on Thursday.
According to India Today, the Bangladesh camp believes that Yuvraj Singh is India’s weakest link and that they can target the southpaw in the field owing to his slightly iffy fielding.
Yuvraj, who has been in fine form off late, is one of the most destructive batsmen in world cricket. It comes as a bit of surprise that Bangladesh’s think-tank has identified India’s swashbuckling all-rounder as a weak link.
Now, this news will surely pump Yuvraj before the big game and this will surely go in India’s favour. Yuvraj has proved his class on many occasions in big tournaments and he would be raring to out in the middle on the big day.
It is being reported that Bangladesh will play with four fast bowlers in the semi-final against India. There four fast bowlers will be Mashrafe Mortaza, Taskin Ahmed, Rubel Hossain, and Mustafizur Rehman. According to media reports, Bangladesh want to attack India’s strong batting order with pace and they will specially test Yuvraj’s technique with some short-pitched stuff.
According to head coach of Bangladesh, Chandika Hathurusingha, Bangladesh have a more balanced and varied attack and the potency to sieve through the Indian batting order.
