It has been more than a year when Sachin got his last hundred and he will be fancying his chances against the sub-continent minnows.
If India wins the match than they will qualify for the final, Pakistan has already booked a place in the finals after they crushed Sri Lanka in their match yesterday.
India is the much stronger side out of the two and will start as clear favorites. Most of their batters did well against the Lankans and will be looking to replicate their performance. Even Indian bowlers came back strongly after Sri Lanka has a good start. Overall, India registered a convincing victory over the side which has been playing some good cricket in the recent times.
Bangladesh on the other hand has a lot to worry about. They were in a winning position against Pakistan and played some very ordinary cricket to lose that match. They are too dependent on Shakib-Al-Hasan and Tamim Iqbal and will look to find a way out of it. They need their young players to step up to the occasion and to start taking responsibilities. India has always dominated Bangladesh apart from that one match in the 2007 World Cup and will hope to continue that.
Bangladesh is in a must-win situation and will hope for some magic to keep their hopes alive. India would like to win the match and confirm a final berth and play their next match against Pakistan as a practice game for the Asia Cup finals.
