Team India will play its fourth match of the T20 World Cup 2022 against Bangladesh on Wednesday, November 2, at the Adelaide Oval. Further talking about IND vs BAN T20 World Cup 2022 match, Bangladesh captain Shakib said India gets immense support wherever they play and are favorites heading into the match.
“Every match is important for us and we want to play with the same approach. We don’t want to focus on any single opposition. We just want to stick to our plans. We are not worried about the strike rates of our players in this World Cup. We are just focused on giving a complete team performance in all the departments of the game,” Shakib told reporters in a press conference on eve of IND vs BAN T20 WC match.
“We want to play well in our remaining two games. If we are able to win against India or Pakistan, it would be an upset. Both the teams are better than us on paper, if we play well and if it is our day, there is no reason why we cannot win. We have seen teams like Ireland and Zimbabwe beating England and Pakistan. If we are able to do the same, I’ll be happy,” he added.
Further talking about the match, Shakib said: “I think it will be a full house because India gets good support wherever they play. I think it will be a good game. India are the favourites heading into the match. They have come here to win the World Cup, we are not here to win the World Cup. You can understand the situation, if we win against India, it will be an upset and we will try our best to upset India.”
