Watch India vs Bangladesh and England vs Afghanistan Live Streaming - ICC T20 World Cup 2016

Double header today! India vs Bangladesh and England vs Afghanistan. Technically both the matches hold a lot of importance. India would be eyeing a win over Bangladesh to strengthen their position in the points tally. England were unfortunate against West Indies where they lost even after posting a total of more than 180. But they bounced back hard beating South Africa after chasing down 230 runs. So it would be important to see if these two teams can improve their chances today by beating the opponents.

Star Sports and DD Sports will provide live telecast with Hindi and English commentary.

India started off with a disappointing loss against New Zealand. This wasn't an expected kick off for India at home. Leaving behind the loss, team India did a brilliant job against Pakistan. In a rain affected match, Indian bowlers restricted Pakistan to 118 runs in 18 overs. With few early blows, Indian chase looked very shaky. But the hero Virat Kohli came to the rescue. He not only played a patient innings by staying on the crease till the end, he also scored runs at a good strike rate. He was well supported by Yuvraj Singh followed by MS Dhoni in the end.

The Indian top order that includes Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan and Suresh Raina hasn't clicked so far. This has been a concern for the number one ranked T20 team so far. If these three guys get going, that would reduce the pressure on Dhoni and Kohli. India can get a flying start that may add up to the final score they can manage. A big score would give the bowlers enough space to reduce the opposition to a low score further improving the overall net run rate for the team. In case the team bats second, quick chase would help the cause.

For Bangladesh, the chances of making to the knock outs are almost dead. They would play for the pride. They were thrashed by Pakistan in the first match. They bounced back well against Australia. They had their own chances which they needed to take in full. Beating Australia was always unlikely but overall the performance from Bangladesh was better in the second match. Absence of Taskin Ahmed and Arafat Sunny is hurting the bowling line up.

Team England did a phenomenal job in the batting department so far. Scoring 180 plus against West Indies and chasing down 230 against South Africa was never expected from England. Their bowling has suffered so far. They leaked runs against West Indies to lose a match that could have been pocketed by them. They also gave away 230 runs to South African batsmen. Fortunately the strong batting line up took the team home. 

Afghanistan is a team that can create wonders. They can't be taken lightly. We got glimpses of fearless cricket when Afghanistan got to a flying start against South Africa. Mohammad Shahzad toyed with South African bowlers and hit them all over the park. Some good signs for the team to come up for an upset.

The ICC T20 World Cup 2016 is nicely poised with still an uncertainty over which four teams would make it to the knockouts. Watch the T20 matches live on HotStar and Star Sports.
