A Must win for both the teams

With top four teams in the form of India, Australia, England and New Zealand already placed comfortably in the points table, it will be the last chance for either side to bring themselves into the reckoning. A loss here will mean a terminal end to the prospects of the losing team in this year’s ICC World Cup 2019. Both the sides will now have to face the top teams in the remaining matches which include India, Australia, and New Zealand.

It will be a tough and uphill task from here on.

Beware of The Calypso bouncers

The Taunton Ground is known for its bouncy pitches and the Caribbean side this time resembles the fearsome West Indies Cricket team of the eighties. Then the team had pace bowlers like Malcolm Marshal, Courtney Walsh, Michael Holding who bowled and the ball resembled greased lightning.

The Bangladesh batsmen are sure to get a barrage of short paced deliveries.

The Tigers have been practicing hard for the short-pitched deliveries, but even in practice, the risk of injuries is great. Wicketkeeper-batsman Mushfiqur Rahim was hit by a rising delivery on the right forearm, and he was taken for an x-ray whose results have still not come.

Weather, the main villain of this World Cup

The Tigers are ruing the weather after their fateful encounter with Sri Lanka has been washed out. Bangladesh had a good chance of defeating Sri Lanka and obtained the much needed 2 points from the game. The rain has played spoilsport all through this year’s World Cup.

Four matches have already been washed out, and almost every game had to be stopped or the total reassigned due to bad weather.
