New Delhi: The replay of 2016 Asia Cup final, between India and Bangladesh, holds special importance for one fact, that is a negative result could spoil Men in Blue's chances of making the last four. The 2016 edition of World Twenty20 need the host team to go some distance to make it a truly successful tournament.
That being said, there's no denying the fact that Bangladesh are no push overs. The Tigers have been playing the 'bravest' version of cricket possible, taking on the traditional powerhouses. A win for them would make this group of death interesting.
