Virat Kohli's doppelganger spotted in Pakistan

Conspiracy theories abound and some of them continue to be haunted by the 2015 Rohit Sharma "no ball" call from umpire Aleem Dar, which, they argue, forced them out of the World Cup in Australia. India came into the tournament as the favourites and lived up to that tag so far. We have had so many matches against each other since then, and we are certainly not going out to prove a point to anyone.

Following Bangladesh's win over the Kiwis, England defeated Australia which meant that Mashrafe Mortaza's side made it to the semi-finals which is a terrific achievement for a team that has grown from strength to strength in recent years.

The mass hysteria associated with Bangladesh's semi-final qualification is something that Hathurusingha is well aware of and that's the reason his outsider's (not being a Bangladeshi) perspective can work as a calming influence for his team amidst the unimaginable media frenzy.

MASHRAFE MORTAZA: People count only winning, that's for sure, but I think if you look at both matches, I think we played at our best. But as a team we are trying to improve our cricket. As India gear up to take on Bangladesh in the ICC Champions Trophy semifinals, a photo has gone viral disrespecting the Indian flag.

India also thrashed Bangladesh by 240 runs in a warm-up game last month.

Virat Kohli spoke with glowing respect about India's opponents on Thursday, stating there can be no guarantees against Bangladesh these days given their rise to No6 in the one-day world rankings and their toppling of New Zealand last week. However, then this is not about Pakistan or England, it is about the upcoming semifinal here Thursday at Edgbaston between India and Bangladesh where the proud father will try and teach a thing or two to the overconfident grandson.

And according to authorities, Hodgkinson came to the ball field with enough firepower to terminate many Republican lawmakers. Noah Nathan was walking his dogs near the baseball field just as a gunman opened fire in Alexandria , Virginia on Wednesday.

On the big stage, in the big games, few players have risen to the occasion as consistently or spectacularly in limited-overs cricket as Yuvraj Singh, who will be playing his 300th One-Day International. We're not going to go according to past results and what we've done in the past tournaments.

India beat Bangladesh by 109 runs in their last meeting at a global 50-over tournament - a quarterfinal match at the 2015 Cricket World Cup in Melbourne - but lost 2-1 in a bilateral series played in Dhaka later that year.

Now India is back to Edgbaston where they thrashed archrivals Pakistan. "Going into a big game like this, we will treat it how we treated the last game".

"You obviously need to have all those things in place to be able to play 300 games for India and I congratulate him".

"As a batsman, you think of finishing games".

"We are playing the semi-finals for the first time but I think that India will feel more pressure that us". Even Bangladesh, also. Both teams have a lot of expectations. We have tried to play at our best in every matches. "Rather, we have experienced players like Masharafe (Mortaza), Shakib (Al Hasan), Mahmudullah, Mushfiqur Rahim and Tamim (Iqbal)", Islam told leading daily "Prothom Alo".
