I would like your opinion on what would be a challenging total for Bangladesh to set India assuming we bat first and what we should do if we win the toss????

I personally think we should bat first if we win the toss that way we can bat without the pressure and try to set a challenging total of 250+. This will then put pressure on the Indian batsmen who prefer to bat first and set a target rather than chase. Remember when India played Kenya in 2003 world cup and were put under some pressure batting last ( I know this was a day/night match but thats no excuse). so I hope bangladesh get a break today INSHALLAH. I'd love to see our boys put one over Ganguly's boys. COME ON !!!TIGERS:fanflag::fanflag::fanflag:

Remember BD hammered 249 against India in the last asia cup 2000? Why not odd 253 this time? Go tigers go :fanflag:

yes I remember that match. What was particularly interesting about that match was the trouble India had with kenya's LEFT ARM SPINNER Asif Karim. It looks like we will have 3 of those today...so things could be very, very interesting if we can bat first and put up 250+ :fanflag::fanflag::fanflag:

There will no Akram Khans today unfortunately. Irfan Pathan might prove to be quite a handful for our batsmen as he bowls with a lot of swing and our batsmen dont exactly have the best feet movement in the world. Also, inspite of being a team from the sub continent we dont see to be able to play spin too well...a big problem now that they have Harbhajan in the team.
