Bangladesh’s 15-run victory over England guaranteed them a spot in the quarterfinals of the 2015 World Cup. Sri Lanka are expected to finish 3rd in Pool A ahead of Bangladesh who would end up 4th. This would mean that India will play Bangladesh in the quarterfinals.
Team India has been enjoying good form in the World Cup with 5 consecutive wins and are looking very confident as well. The bowlers have done their job well and the batting line up has not disappointed either. India will be happy to have a relatively weaker opposition but will still not be taking anything for granted.
Bangladesh, on the other hand, knocked England out with Mahmudullah Riyad becoming the first Bangladeshi to score a World Cup century. Their victory will be a motivating factor but they face a daunting task against the Men In Blue at the MCG in the quarterfinals on Thursday, 19th March.
