In case of Bangladesh, their aim will be to repeat the performance of the 2007 World Cup of opener in Port of Spain - still a "Red Letter Day" in cricketing history.

On the other hand, India has had a decent tournament. The immediate future, though, is the game against India on Thursday. The packed Mirpur crowds supported their team till the very end, but once they lost Tamim Iqbal for 70 and Shakib Al Hasan for 55, they ran out of steam to mount a challenge to the Men in Blue.

"When the clouds comes in, the conditions become a bit more hard", he said. The image drew the ire of the Indian fans after it went viral on social media. That allowed the country to play matches against the world's top teams on a more regular basis.
Moreover, India is above Bangladesh even in the case of Net Run Rate. India win a thrilling contest by 1 run.
"A journey that would take one hour to get to your destination, will take five minutes", predicted Habibul Bashar, one of Dhaka's more famous residents. England is the only undefeated team in the tournament, they have defeated Bangladesh, New Zealand and Australia in the league stages to become the first team to book a semis berth.
What Kohli must be also pleased about is R Ashwin, who played against Proteas - his first game in the ongoing ICC Champions Trophy, and Ravindra Jadeja starting to work in tandem just at the right moment for India.
