Former Indian cricketer and analyst Akash Chopra predict Bangladesh will play in the World Cup semi-final.

Before retiring from all form of Cricket Akash Chopra played 10 tests for India. His Cricket career did not make him a big star. But as an analyst, he has already become popular. Chopra gave an expert opinion on his Facebook page about the possibility of teams before the start of the World Cup. His remarks about the Bangladesh team, the people in Asia are thinking of Bangladesh as a group for leaving India, not now Pakistan. Chapra's prediction for Bangladesh's prospects, Bangladesh will play in a knockout stage which means that the Tigers will play semifinals.

In a video analysis on his Facebook verified page Chopra said Bangladesh has played quarterfinals in 2015 World Cup. They also played semi in   champions trophy. And played in the Final of the Asian Cup. If you take this team easily, then you will be wrong. Bangladesh will also play better cricket this time, "He said at the World Cup." Bangladesh will receive 9 games at the start of the 50 World Cup. The team will speed up the knockout phase.

Chopra is not considered a favorite for Bangladesh, but the 41-year-old former batsman, who said surely Bangladesh will qualify knockout phase. This time all teams will play against each other. The best four teams from here will be in the semifinals.

Chopra praises Bangladesh leaders Mashrafe and Tamim Iqbal is considered a big batsman. In addition to complimenting Lytton Das and the Soumia Sarkar in the highest order, Chopra said: "Lithon Das has played great finishes in the last Asia Cup. Bangladesh is very strong with Shakib al-Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim, but Mahmudullah has an observation about him, he thinks he's a high-profile Batman but Mahmudullah is not properly used by Bangladesh.

Unfortunately, Bangladesh does not give this opportunity to him. I think he should take him down with batting. Mahmoudullah likewise liked Mehdi Hassan Miraz. He thinks this spin is all-behind as a "two-dimensional" player. It can be a quilt with very good action balls.

Bangladesh have won the recently conclued tri-nation series in Ireland beating West Indies. 

India, Australia, England – I have three best teams. Bangladesh will be ahead of New Zealand, Pakistan and South Africa in the period up to the fourth place. If they could able to deal with the new ball, Bangladesh is afraid of any team. "
