IND vs BAN Jaiswal and Samson In, Dube Out.. Here's India's Predicted XI vs BAN

IND vs BAN: Team India are ready to face Bangladesh in match no. 47 of the ongoing ICC t20 World Cup 2024. This game will be held at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, North Sound, Antigua. This is the second Super 8 game for both teams. The Indian team started this round with a win over Afghanistan, and they will be looking to keep the momentum and register a win against Bangladesh on Saturday as well.

But there are a few things that they need to take note of. India have some areas that need to be rectified. The form of openers Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli is a question mark. Both have struggled badly so far. Then, Shivam Dube, whom India has shown great trust in, has not done justice to his talent. So will we see some changes in India’s playing XI? There is a possibility. So let’s talk about the possible XI for India in the IND vs BAN clash.

Team India have struggled with their opening combination of Rohit and Virat. So there are chances that we might see Yashasvi Jaiswal. Because this match is a perfect option to bring Jaiswal, put him at the top with Rohit, and push Virat to his usual No. 3 position. India can go with the left and right hand options and try to maximise the powerplay, and Virat can play his natural game at No. 3.

Rishabh Pant will shift to No. 5 because Suryakumar Yadav will be No. 5. Shivam Dube hasn’t done well so far, so Sanju Samson can replace him and bat in the middle order. This will also give India a backup keeper option. Now, Hardik Pandya can come in at No. 7 to bat. Then, there will be a toss up between Axar Patel and Ravindra Jadeja.

Both bring a similar skill set to the table. But Axar has shown great form with the bat and the ball, so India can pick Axar and drop Jadeja from the playing XI. Jasprit Bumrah and Arshdeep Singh will be the two pacers. Now some will say that India won’t have many bowling options. But India might not need so many bowlers against Bangladesh. But India will have a strong batting unit with a couple of changes. Because if India make it to the final, there are only four matches left. So India can’t make changes in big games. So this is the IND vs BAN is the right time to check the bench strengths and bring in new faces.

India’s Probable XI for IND vs BAN Game: Rohit Sharma (c), Yashasvi Jaiswal, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant (wk), Sanju Samson, Hardik Pandya, Axar Patel, Arshdeep Singh, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah
