Pakistan vs Bangladesh T20 Live
Pakistan want to see them through to the semis by winning their last couple of matches in Super 10 stage and will be looking to get a big win against Bangladesh today in Dhaka. The match will be underway at 15:30 local time.
Pakistan will expect their batsmen to perform the way they did against Australia and a big knock from Umar Akmal is due once again. He showed his brilliance with a 94 runs knock against Australia and will be expected to perform wonders with the bat today as well.
Ahmad Shehzad hasn’t really performed according to his stature so far and might miss the game today as it’s the right time for Pakistan to try Sharjeel and give him some confidence before the important matches ahead. Kamran Akmal has performed reasonably well with the bat so far and seems to have cemented his place at the top.
Hafeez, Afridi and Malik will also have to come up with better efforts and so does Sohaib Maqsood. Pakistan won’t really want to lose this game. On the bowling front, lots of expectations would be associated with Zulfiqar Babar, Umar Gul, and Shahid Afridi. Mohammad Talha might also get a game today as well.
Bangladesh haven’t been at their very best so far in the T20 World Cup 2014. Their batsmen haven’t really lived up to the expectations of their fans and they are in a position now where they would need two big victories and still expect Pakistan to defeat West Indies with a big margin.
They will expect the openers to provide them with a solid foundation up front in today’s match and especially Anamul Haque will have to play a crucial role for them with the bat.
Shakib Al Hasan is also one of their most important batsmen in the middle and he hasn’t clicked in last couple of matches as well, so it’s high time for the guy to show the world what he is capable of. He’s naturally good against Pakistan as well and will be looking to play a big innings today. Mushfiqur Rahim will also have to take the responsibility and play some sensible cricket with the bat.
However, Bangladeshi bowling will be a bit of concern for them as except Al-Amin Hossain, no one has really rose to the occasion so far in the tournament. They will expect some wicket taking deliveries from Shakib, Mashrafe and Sohag Gazi as well.
