The first game of the World Cup Cricket 2011 will be played on Saturday, February 19, 2011 between India vs Bangldesh at Mirpur. See live score.
The Indians will try and avenge their defeat from the previous time the two sides had met in a World Cup.
India will go in with all their top three players featuring in this game – Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir. They will be the players to look out for in the game but if the top order does not get going, then, it will be left to the manner in which the middle plays. Watch live streaming.
The bowling will depend on the likes of Harbhajan Singh and the other spinner who make it, even as Zaheer Khan fights hard for his fitness. Spin will be the key at Mirpur and how the Indians adjust to it after the South African trip will be the key.
Bangladesh will be led by Shakib al Hasan, who will look to ensure that the side can push their defeat to Pakistan in the warm-ups aside and try and capture this game. To do that, Tamim Iqbal will be the man they will rely on
