This is a huge game for both these teams and also for Bangladesh. A win for the West Indies ensures they're in the Quarter Final, eliminates England and also puts us in the QF if South Africa beats Ireland.

The two games on this ground have been low scoring ones, including the thriller between England and South Africa. It seems to me there is assistance for the seamers and the spinners on this wicket and hopefully these conditions will favor the West Indies.

I bet most Bangladesh fans will be following this game very closely and most of them will be cheering for the West Indies wholeheartedly, I know I will.

GO WEST INDIES!

WI is missing a bowler, Nikita Miller and Andre Russell are not any good, Dwayne Bravo is a big loss for WI and Broad a loss for England. Tremlett might get a shot for the poor Anderson or Collingwood.

But before that, South Africa needs to make sure to not choke against Ireland.

as far as i know, SA have never lost to minnows in any format in any series/tournament. first time for everything, but hopefully this SA team has put the choking away after the loss against England and the win against India.

generally support the associates (especially the decent ones), but hopeing Ireland get thrashed here.

hoping WI gets a well deserved win against England here.

i thought andre russell bowled really well against ireland. nikita miller or russell will sit out if gayle comes back.

So, what's the forecast on Gayle? What's the likelihood of him playing against England? He'd be a huge boost for WI. Gayle + the bowling pitch + recent form ...I can definitely see WI winning this bar some heroics from England.

Im on the same boat as you brother! I dont want England to lose but unfortunatly they will. Saw Matthew Prior's interview earlier on, the um-teenth English player to admit that he's just bloody exhausted. He says he hasnt seen his teammates for the last 2 days. Everyone's just locked inside they're hotel rooms trying to get away from cricket, from eachother, from everything really. Now what kind of mentality is that before such a crucial game.??

I want Bangladesh to go through the quarters by beating SA like real tigers, not like some p***ys by getting through at a jaded England team's expense. They've only got themselves to blame for srewing over the NRR for themselves, otherwise they wouldnt be in this position & 160million people and then some, wouldnt be praying that WI beat England come thursday. Damn I swear even Bangladesh team probably havent had as much support as what the Windies will have on thursday! Wish this match was in bangladesh, would've been interesting to crowd reaction lol.

Basically, it all depends on the day. Also, since it will be England who will be under tremendous pressure, I would say, it will take away any advantage they have and it will be a 50/50 game until it begins (then its all on going to depend on the day)

Not necessarily... As long as we don't face the Sri Lankans in the QF, we don't have to go anywhere, the match will be in Mirpur.

Also, if we finish 4th in our group, then there is no chance of us facing Sri Lanka in the quarters because they cannot finish 1st in their division, it will either be Australia or Pakistan.

[বাংলা]আমরা দক্ষিণ আফ্রিকার কাছে হেরেছি, সামনে কঠিন দুটি ম্যাচ। তবে আমার মনে হয়, তিনটি ম্যাচ জিতে আমরা ভালো অবস্থানেই আছি।
ইংল্যান্ড আর ভারত ম্যাচের যেকোনো একটি জিতলেই আমাদের চলবে। নিশ্চিত হয়ে যাবে কোয়ার্টার ফাইনাল। দক্ষিণ আফ্রিকা কোয়ার্টার ফাইনালে উঠে গেছে। বাকি তিনটি জায়গার জন্য চারটি দলের সমান সুযোগ আছে। চার দলের যেকোনোটি কোয়ার্টার ফাইনালে উঠতে পারে, যেকোনোটিই বাদ পড়ে যেতে পারে। রোমাঞ্চকর এক পরিস্থিতি।
এই গ্রুপ এখন একেবারেই উন্মুক্ত। ছোট একটি ভুলও মারাত্মক হয়ে দেখা দিতে পারে। অন্যদের চেয়ে একদিক দিয়ে আমরা সুবিধাজনক অবস্থায় আছি। একটা ম্যাচ বেশি আছে আমাদের। গ্রুপ পর্বের শেষ ম্যাচ খেলব আমরা। পরিস্থিতি যদি ঘোলাটে হয়, তাহলে আমরা হিসাব-নিকাশ করেই মাঠে নামতে পারব।
ভাগ্য আমাদের পক্ষে থাকলে অন্য কেউ বাদ পড়বে। আমরা অনাকাঙ্ক্ষিত চাপও নিতে পারি না। ভাগ্যের ছোঁয়ায় কোয়ার্টার ফাইনালে উঠতে চাই না আমরা। চাই নিজেদের সামর্থ্য দিয়ে এগিয়ে যেতে। আর এতে টুর্নামেন্টের পরবর্তী পর্যায়ের জন্য আত্মবিশ্বাসের পালে হাওয়াও ভরে নেওয়া যাবে।
আমরা তাই ইংল্যান্ড ম্যাচের দিকেই তাকিয়ে আছি। জানি, ওরা নিখুঁত আর সব দিক দিয়ে ভালো একটা দল। আমরা যদি ওদের হারিয়ে দিতে পারি, সবাই তখন বুঝবে আমরা আমাদের কাজটা কী, সেটা জানি। পরিকল্পনা সেই একই আছে—ঠিক কাজগুলো করা আর নিজেদের শক্তিতে বিশ্বাস রাখা এবং সেরা ক্রিকেট খেলা।
ইংল্যান্ডের জন্য এটা বাঁচা-মরার লড়াই। এটাই তাদের বিপজ্জনক প্রতিপক্ষ করে তুলবে। কারণ, কোণঠাসা দলগুলো সব সময়ই খুব করে ঘুরে দাঁড়াতে চায় এবং তাদের সেরা খেলাটা খেলে। আশা করছি, আজ এ রকম কিছু হবে না। তারা ভালো ক্রিকেট খেলেছে মাঝেমধ্যে। সুতরাং আমরা জানি, ইংল্যান্ড আসলে কী করতে পারে। আমরা এই পর্বেই ইংল্যান্ডকে বাদ করে দিতে চাই। আমরা ইংল্যান্ডের সামর্থ্য কী, তা জানি। কোথায় ওদের শক্তি, কোথায় দুর্বলতা; আমরা তা জানি। এই অনুযায়ী আমরা আমাদের খেলাটাকে গুছিয়ে নিতে পারব আশা করি।
আমাদের একটা প্রেরণা আছে—আর পাঁচটি ম্যাচ জিতলেই চ্যাম্পিয়ন হয়ে যাব! এর আগে অবশ্য আমরা গ্রুপ পর্বের ম্যাচ দুটি নিয়েই ভাবছি এবং গ্রুপের শীর্ষে থাকতে চাই। এটাও হবে দলের জন্য মনোবল-বর্ধক ও মাইলফলক। শেষ দুটি ম্যাচ আমরা খেলব একই ভেন্যুতে। উইকেট আর কন্ডিশন আমাদের পরিচিত হয়ে যাবে। এর মধ্যে কোনো ভ্রমণ-ঝক্কি থাকবে না। তবে দুই ম্যাচের মধ্যে তেমন ফাঁকা নেই। আমি একটা অর্থবহ ভূমিকা পালন করতে উন্মুখ হয়ে আছি, যাতে বিশ্বকাপের দিকে শুরু হতে পারে আমাদের কুচকাওয়াজ। [/বাংলা]
