In ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, India will be up against Bangladesh on Tuesday. If India wins this match, it will confirm their place in the semi-finals. On the other hand, if Bangladesh wins this encounter, they will stay in the race for the semis.
Ahead of this big match, let us have a look at the records which can be made during this clash.
Fastest Indian bowler to 100 wickets
Indian fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah is only five wickets away from picking up 100 wickets in One Day International (ODI) cricket. If Bumrah is able to pick up a fifer against Bangladesh, then he will become the joint fastest Indian to pick up 100 wickets.
Notably, Mohammed Shami holds this record as he picked up 100 wickets in 56 matches. Bumrah has 95 wickets in 55 matches.
Mahmudullah nears 4000 ODI runs
Bangladesh’s senior batsman Mahmudullah Riyad is just 53 runs away from completing 4000 runs in ODI cricket. If Mahmudullah manages to score 53 runs against India, he will become just the fourth Bangladesh batsman to reach the 4000 run mark.
Prior to him, Tamim Iqbal (6841 runs), Shakib Al Hasan (6193 runs), and Mushfiqur Rahim (5885 runs) have achieved this feat.
1000 runs in 2019
Indian skipper Virat Kohli needs just seven more runs to reach the 1000 run mark in the year 2019. Virat’s run tally reads 993 runs in 2019.
Rohit Sharma, in fact, is ahead of him as far as runs are concerned in 2019 with 996 runs in 2019- a boundary against Bangladesh in typical Hitman style will take him to 1000 runs in 2019.
1000 runs in World Cup Cricket
Although Virat Kohli has not been able to score a century in this edition of the Cricket World Cup, he is not far away from completing 1000 runs in World Cup Cricket. Kohli needs to score 31 runs against Bangladesh to achieve this feat.
Hardik Pandya in the spotlight
Indian all-rounder Hardik Pandya is one wicket away from completing his half-century of wickets. He has 49 wickets to his credit and one more wicket will take him to 50 ODI wickets. In the absence of Vijay Shankar, Hardik’s role will become much more important as a bowler.
Pandya also needs just 82 runs to reach 1000 runs in ODI cricket. An aggressive Pandya knock can just be the impetus India may need during the slog overs to propel them to a daunting total.
Tamim Iqbal’s 200th match
Bangladesh’s veteran opener Tamim Iqbal will feature in his 200th One Day International match when he takes the field against India.
Mashrafe Mortaza, Mushfiqur Rahim and Shakib Al Hasan have already played 200 matches before Tamim.
