A resurgent India will take on a depleted Bangladesh side in the ICC World T20 2016 at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore, Wednesday. India will look to register their third win over the Bangla Tigers in 2016.
Bangladesh have lost their first two games -- against Australia and Pakistan. Reaching the last four of the tournament looks difficult for the team, at the moment.
Meanwhile, India lost against New Zealand and won the other against Pakistan. MS Dhoni's men are currently placed fourth in the points table of Group 2. If they can beat Bangladesh, they will jump to the second spot. But, if they lose, then things are going to extremely difficult for India.
Ashish Nehra believes all games are knockouts for India from here on. Having suffered a drubbing at the hands of New Zealand in the opening match of the ICC World T20 2016, India bounced back brilliantly against Pakistan in the next game.
"We are very confident. This format everybody knows from game one, more or less every game is a knockout game. Only two teams will qualify. There is a possibility that you win three games, but still don't qualify. Format is such," Nehra was quoted as saying by TOI.
Nehra believes the kind of cricket India have played this year and the win over Pakistan Saturday will help them in getting the better of Bangladesh.
"So till the time you don't lift the trophy, every game is a knock-out game. Not too much room for error. The mood is good. The kind of cricket we are playing in last two-three months, you have seen how many T20s we have played. So hopefully the firepower we have, if we deliver, we will definitely win the game," Nehra added.
The Delhi-born pacer also praised Bangladesh for the kind of cricket they have played in the past one and a half years. They cannot be taken lightly in this format of the game, feels Nehra.
"Bangladesh have been doing good, everybody knows. They played the Asia Cup final with us, where there were teams like Pakistan and Sri Lanka also, and beaten them. In this format, you can't take anything lightly," Nehra said.
