Ind v Ban T20 World Cup 2022 Live: Rahul Dravid Pre-Match Press Conference

India will clash with Bangladesh in the T20 World Cup match on Wednesday. Bangladesh has beaten India only once, in 2019, in Delhi. Hence, when Shakib was questioned about the World Cup match on Wednesday in the pre-game presser, he said, “We haven’t come here to win the World Cup, but India has. If we win tomorrow, it will be an upset victory. India are favorites tomorrow.”

Later on Tuesday, when Dravid was asked about Shakib’s remark, he denied that India will head into the contest as “favorites”, citing Ireland’s win over England earlier in this tournament.

“I think we respect them a lot. I think they’re a very good team. I think this format and this World Cup has really shown us that honestly you can’t take any team lightly. Ireland showed that against England. We’ve seen enough games in this competition.

“I think the fact that it is already such a short format. 20 overs is such a short format of the game. The margins of victory and defeat sometimes even if they’re 12 runs, 15 runs, it’s actually just two hits. It’s two hits one way or the other, and actually that’s the game. So it is already a shortened sort of rushed, noisy format, but it’s very difficult to sometimes say who’s a clear favourite in some of these games,” he said.
