Default Bangladesh versus India: World Cup opening Match Strategy Thread

Please do not confuse the thread title with an official match thread.

In My Opinion, to successfully Beat India or to even have a shot at beating India Bangladesh needs to bat really really well against them. Their obvious weaklink is their Bowling(Most of the time).

Our bowling is our stronghold and so is their batting. Judging from previous experience, they will be and should be well-prepared for our spin dominated attack.

we seriously need to get our Powerplay failures fixed up before world cup. How we perform in the powerplay will determine how well we succeed as a team in the world cup. so hoping we find some good power hitters during the zimbabwe series who can sort this problem out.

If the powerplay problem is sorted out, then our sub-par score will drastically improve by at least 25 more runs than what we score on a normal basis.

I apologize if this thread is too early and pre-mature. I am just too excited and I feel that with the world cup approaching us within less than four months from now and life is so fast paced these days that it never hurts too early to plan ahead.

Looking forward to hear your thoughts on how Bangladesh should approach vital games as the opening one if we are to repeat last world cup's heroics.(and NO, losing to Ireland is not an option )

Here is what we do. We don't let Mashrafee get anywhere near the team. Let him get mad, tell him go home you big baby. And then you let him play against his favorite opponent and rest will be history. Case closed.

Well, obviously target their bowling. Now you can take your chances and try to chase but that would be pretty tough to do. I realistically see us batting first and bring our PP batting woes to an end. 300 doesn't really mean much for the Indians with their batting but if we can bring our A game and Rubel and Shakib and the rest can do what they do best in the field, we might just pull something off. I want to see Tamim and Imrul opening and we would need a partnership of at least 100 in 15-18 overs time. Then, whoever comes in 3rd (maybe Mushfiq) needs to bat steadily but take risks. We need to bat as if we are coming to win from the get go. Don't let the Indians lay back. Always aim to be in the front seat. If 2nd wicket partnership can stay until 150-175 before 28ish overs, I say let Jahurul come in and sort of play a stabilizer. If this works and we have a score of around 225 at 35ish, bring in Ash/Shakib and call batting powerplay before 38 and try to have 275 at 42-43 over mark. Then we should target 335-350. This is the only way I believe we can make the Indian batting line up maybe drop a bead or two of sweat.
Bowling:
I say we open with Mash and Shafiul. First change Razzak and hopefully we can contain them to under 50ish in the first 10. This makes RRR pretty high. Then we play with Shakib and Rubel. If we can get Sehwag before he makes the RRR get lower and lower, we have our first lick at a victory. Then, imho, Kohli looks kind of scary. I know he's new, but I think this is what makes him so scary. I really think that Naeem should be in the XI not only because of his batting ability but because he's a very economical bowler. This way Shakib and Rubel have at least 5 overs each left after 30 over mark. At 30 over mark, the max India can have would be 160. Hopefully we can have at least 4 wicket at this stage. This is when the game really starts. The lineup bats pretty deep so tailenders aren't really an option yet. Razzak needs to bowl his quota up before 40 overs. I don't like seeing Razzak get smacked around or giving half volleys down the leg side. The indian batting powerplay will bring a minimum of 55-60 runs and we should expect this. But we need to buckle down afterward. I think we can get India on February 19, 2011 and begin the 2011 ICC World Cup on a positive note.

As Shakib would say, bolars should boal oil, batsman should bat oil. Rubel should boal oil Shafiul should boal oil Nazmul apa should boal oil. Tamim should bat oil and I should bat oil because no other batsman will do jack.

What he would mean by saying that: Go all out, murder India. Flatten 'em like cheese on a cracker. *Whip*

amar STRATEGY ta besh simple ....

1. batsmen should bat well (sensibly according to situation)
2. bowlers should bowl well concentrating on tight line and length
3. fielders should catch and field well

Excellent thread. For me the biggest factor would be the opening stand. We desperately need Tamim to eat up the overs even if it means toning down his "natural game"; we cannot afford to go all Sehwag in the game. If he restrains himself and then goes berserk at the end, he will put the White in whitewash a la Cameron White in the Aus-Ind PP where 85 runs were scored in just 5 overs.

Slow but steady wins the race.

This is going to be a tough match. Both Bangladesh and India are at the peak of their games. India for obvious reason (Aus bash) and Bangladesh well we in BC know why and so does the NZ'ders (LOL).

BTW am looking forward to see atleast 2 asian teams in the semi-finals. Hopefuly Pakistan can pull up their socks before the WC.

We should be basically chasing, India may not be knowing what should be a good target to offer. On the other hand we play better when we have a target (if that's not too big).
