Top Picks for BAN vs IND
In the encounter against Qatar, Gurpreet Singh Sandhu performed like a beast. He made incredible saves and blocked shots that appeared to be impossible to respond to. Although he couldn’t stop Qatar’s lone goal, he received praise from fans and experts all around the country. He would be one of few obstacles in Bangladesh’s path.
After seeing Manvir Singh play against Qatar, it can be said that he has the potential to be a game-changer. Manvir’s last performance was notable for the speed and pace with which he performed. His ability to make quick sprints might pose a serious threat to Bangladeshi defenders.
Jamal Bhuyan is a defensive midfielder who also serves as the captain of the Bangladesh national team. When Bangladesh faced India in 2019, he was the best player on the field. Jamal Bhuyan will be crucial to Bangladesh’s fortunes if they hope to pull off a fairy-tale upset or even eke out a point.
Topu Barman is a regular for Bangladesh’s national team, and he played in the most recent match. He secured a solitary point for the team after scoring an equalizer in the final minutes of the game against Afghanistan. On his best days, his tenacious defense poses a threat to the Indian side.
