Fans can watch the India vs. Bangladesh cricket match live online and see whether India can continue its torrid run through the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup or if Bangladesh can pull off the biggest upset so far.
The past few months has been a tale of two teams for India. Leading up to the World Cup the team had stumbled, looking lost in a Test series against Australia and then going winless in the Tri-Series with Australia and England. Captain MS Dhoni missed time with an injury and the team’s roster looked disjointed.
But all has changed in the World Cup. India has gone a perfect six for six, pulling off early upsets of Pakistan and South Africa and notching other blowout wins.
India will now face Bangladesh in the 2015 ICC World Cup quarterfinals. The match starts Thursday at 2:30 p.m. local time (3:30 a.m. GMT) from Melbourne.
Those who watch the India vs. Bangladesh cricket match live online will see a team that has gone from dark horse to title favorite. Though few experts predicted India would win the World Cup at the outset of the tournament, they are now considered the favorite to win it all.
History appears to be on India’s side. The team has only lost to Bangladesh three times in 28 ODIs, though Bangladesh did pull off a shocking upset of India before, in the 2007 World Cup. ‘
But Bangladesh is not backing down from the challenge.
“I think we played fearless cricket (when Bangladesh beat India eight years ago) and we all want to play that brand of cricket that we played,” Shakib Al Hasan told a media conference.
“And, so far in this World Cup, I think we’re doing it. If we do exactly what we did against England or New Zealand, I think we’ll have a very good game.
“It depends on the day, we need to start well. Whatever we do and if we keep doing that and we keep the momentum in our favor then anything is possible.”
