In the ICC Cricket World Cup, India will take on Bangladesh in their eighth and penultimate round-robin match at Birmingham this afternoon. All India Radio will broadcast live commentary on the game from 2:30 PM.
It can be heard on Rajdhani, FM Rainbow Network and DTH (Hindi). India will be without the services of all-rounder Vijay Shankar who has been ruled out due to a toe injury. He will be replaced by batsman Mayank Agarwal who is yet to make his ODI debut.
India is second in the 10-team points with 11 points from seven matches and a win over Bangladesh today will see Virat Kohli and Company secure a place in the semi-finals. Defending champions and table leaders Australia is the only team that has qualified to the last-four, so far. Bangladesh is seventh in the table with seven points from seven matches and if they lose today they will bow out of the semi-final race.
South Africa, West Indies and Afghanistan are the bottom three and they are the three teams that are, so far, out of contention of sealing a last-four slot. India, third-placed New Zealand, fourth-placed hosts England, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh can still make it to the semis.
