On June 30, England made India taste their maiden defeat in the 2019 World Cup. The Men in Blue lost the encounter by 31 runs, but are in a pretty comfortable position. Placed second in the table with 11 points from seven games, Virat Kohli & Co are next scheduled to lock horns with Mashrafe Mortaza’s Bangladesh on July 2 at the Edgbaston in Birmingham. A victory would seal India’s place in the semis.

The Tigers, on the other hand, are in for a tough road ahead. First, they need to win both their league matches in order to have any chance of progressing to the next round. If they do so, then they have to depend on some other calculations to go their way. Beating India won’t be a walk in the park, but Bangladesh can’t be written off by any means. Mashrafe’s men need to be wary of their NRR as well.

Here is the guide to select the Captain and Vice-Captain for Dream11 Fantasy:

Captain Suggestions

Rohit Sharma

Rohit Sharma is in ominous form in this World Cup. Having scored 440 runs at an average of 88, he has looked pretty much at ease. After three impressive knocks in the start, he failed against the Afghans and Windies. But he made amends with his third ton of the mega event while facing the English attack, though it came in a losing cause. He’ll want to carry on with his good form.

Virat Kohli

With 382 runs in six matches, Virat Kohli hasn’t flattered to deceive by any means. He failed versus South Africa, but made an incredible comeback, scoring half-centuries in the next five matches. But given the class he possesses, Kohli would be a tad disappointed that he hasn’t gotten a century thus far. He’ll be looking for another knock of substance in the upcoming encounter.

Shakib Al Hasan

There’s absolutely no doubt in the fact that Shakib Al Hasan has been a linchpin of the Bangladesh team. The Jessore-born talent has 476 runs in six matches at a gigantic average of 95.20 with two centuries and three half-centuries. Moreover, he is also their joint-leading wicket-taker with 10 scalps. The five-wicket haul he got versus the Afghans would keep him in a positive frame of mind.

Vice-Captain Suggestions:

Mushfiqur Rahim

Mushfiqur Rahim has been an indefatigable trooper of Bangladesh cricket and he has shown the reasons behind the same. He is the Tigers’ second highest run-scorer in the mega event with 327 runs at an average of 65.40. After a gutsy ton versus Australia, he came up with an 83 in the previous game. He got a 90 against India in the warm-ups and would be looking for something similar next time.

Mohammed Shami

Mohammad Shami has only played three games in this World Cup. Quite astonishingly, he is already India’s leading-taker with 13 wickets at an incredible average and strike-rate of 9.61 and 12 respectively. After a couple of four-wicket hauls, the Bengal pacer picked up a fifer against England, though he went for a few in his spell. The Tigers’ batsmen need to be careful while facing him.

KL Rahul

KL Rahul has blown a tad hot and cold, having scored 172 runs in six matches at an average of 34.40. After getting a few starts in the opening slot, Rahul failed to open his account in the previous match. In Shikhar Dhawan’s absence, a lot is expected from him. Before the next game, Rahul can take heart from the fact that he scored a ton in the warm-up match against Bangladesh in Cardiff.
