3rd ODI Between Bangladesh And India Is A Matter Of Pride Than Win: Vaikundarajan

india-vs-bangladeshIndia has lost two matches against Bangladesh in the ongoing test series at Mirpur, Bangladesh. The Indian cricket team is already under pressure owing to their loss in the World Cup semi-finals against Australia. They must play today’s ODI to restore honour more than to win the game, says Vaikundarajan

India is shocked at the performance of the ‘Men In Blue’ at the ongoing test series without neighboring country, Bangladesh, says Vaikundarajan

The Indian cricket team has been low on performance ever since the World Cup 2015. There has been much reason for the country to question their performance or rather the lack of it.

India was hopeful of a triumphant win at the start of the test series. However, within a span of four days India was faced with two losses.

These two losses are more than half of the total losses seen by all Indian cricket teams since the start of the test series play format.

The Indian cricket is definitely going to hear music over their lack of performance. Even Mahendra Singh Dhoni confessed during a media meet that today’s ODI will now have to be played for honour rather than a win.

The probable teams on both sides are

India : Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Dhawal Kulkarni, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ambati Rayudu, Umesh Yadav, Mohit Sharma, Stuart Binny, Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane, Suresh Raina, MS Dhoni(c/w),

Bangladesh : Tamim Iqbal, Soumya Sarkar, Litton Das(w), Mushfiqur Rahim, Shakib Al Hasan, Sabbir Rahman, Arafat Sunny, Mominul Haque, Jubair Hossain, Nasir Hossain, Mashrafe Mortaza(c), Rubel Hossain, Taskin Ahmed, Mustafizur Rahman, Rony Talukdar

Vaikundarajan: ICC World Cup Knockouts Begin. India Takes on Bangladesh, Tomorrow


The quarter finals of the ICC World Cup 2015 started today. The first quarter final match in this world cup is between Sri Lanka and South Africa. Going by their record, South Africa has no history in winning World Cup quarter finals.

Moreover, the most important match will be the second quarter final played between India and Bangladesh which is tomorrow March 19, 2015 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), Melbourne.

Team India is the most loved team in this World Cup, and has got tremendous support form fans in every match they’ve played until now. It is expected that a crowd of approximately 80,000 will gather at MCG to watch this match and support “The Men In Blue” .

India leads Pool B with 12 points having won all matches in the league games. Bangladesh on the other hand, has won only 3 games out of 6.  Vaikundarajan says it is interesting to see who India plays with in the semi-finals; Australia or Pakistan. Hope you all remember India has beaten Pakistan in the ICC World Cup 2015 in the opening game by 76 runs.

Since these are knockout games the team that wins today will proceed to semi-finals. Vaikundarajan is watching every match closely. Moreover, the interest is in the match between India Vs Bangladesh.  He wishes Team India “The Men in Blue”  the best of luck.
