Shikhar Dhawan To Guide India To Victory Over Bangladesh

The second semi-final of the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy sees India take on Bangladesh on Thursday and it promises to be a cracking atmosphere at Edgbaston in Birmingham...

  • Umesh Yadav has taken 9 ODI wickets at 22.44 against Bangladesh
  • Shikhar Dhawan averages 81.33 in ODI's at Edgbaston

India Favourites

It is India who start the match as 1/4 favourites (Betfair) after producing some wonderful cricket during their title defence so far as they thrashed Pakistan and comfortably beat South Africa either side of a shock defeat to Sri Lanka.

The defeat to the Sri Lankans must be something of a concern for the defending champions but they can take great confidence from the fact that they have won their past four One-Day International matches at Edgbaston.

They have also won thirteen of their past sixteen ODI meetings with Bangladesh, albeit the Tigers have actually won two of the past three.

Bangladesh are 7/2 to cause an almighty upset after losing to England, enduring a no-result against Australia and beating New Zealand during the group stage of this Champions Trophy.

Top Batsman

Tamim Iqbal is so central to Bangladesh's hopes as the opener has scored 223 runs in the tournament and he is 10/3 to be his team's top batsman again (Bet 365).

Iqbal was bowled for a duck in his last match but Bangladesh's middle order stood up well to secure victory against New Zealand, although they will be severely tested this week by Umesh Yadav, who has taken six wickets in the Champions Trophy so far.

Yadav, who took a three-fer against Pakistan at Edgbaston, has previously picked up nine wickets at 22.44 in ODI's against Bangladesh and he is 19/4 to be top India bowler (Paddy Power).

It is Shikhar Dhawan who is the stand-out bet for this game though as he simply loves playing at Edgbaston, where he averages an eye-watering 81.33 from three previous performances. The Indian opener, who averages 43.20 in ODI's against Bangladesh, has amassed 271 runs in the Champions Trophy already this year and he is 10/3 to be India's top batsman (Bet 365).
