Bangladesh look make-up quarter final best
05 March 2015 Match Start Time
11:00 local time (22:00 GMT)
If Bangladesh be to the quarterfinals of the World Cup they will win at least two oftheir next three games If they win against Scotland at the Saxton Oval its next gameagainst England will be a virtual play off But Bangladesh would be to think that veryahead at your own risk.
They easily defeated Afghanistan by 105 runs a result that could have been forany of the first 29 overs but only had an address later.
Bangladesh has also never lost to Scotland, but that statistic is very hollow when oneconsiders the last of their three ODIs completed between the two sides was played in2006. The last registered Bangladesh. ODI was abandoned without a ball whichwas shot nearly five years ago. In fact Scotland had the last laugh between the twoparties so to speak, when they beat Bangladesh by 34 runs in a T20I in 2012 their lastmeeting at the international level.
Bangladesh often has been under extra pressure of expectation in match’s againstlower ranking teams as the threat of a possible embarrassment remains cautious But when it is completely safe Bangladesh have mastered associates from his ownpromotion in 2000.
One might think that Scotland has nothing to lose but who would consider this gameas their last real opportunity to put points on the scoreboard as are their next twomatches against Sri Lanka and Australia. They lost a great opportunity in their lastmatch when they leave that Afghanistan was the hook, and lost by a portillo. Bowlingrhythm of Scotland players have been impressive, but lacking the final movement.
