It was already confirmed that Bangladesh is playing Super Six in this year’s Youth World Cup. Who are Bangladesh’s opponents in the second phase, had to wait so long to know. As the group stage match ended yesterday, the opponents have been decided. However, it will not be easy for the youth of Bangladesh to cross the Super Six barrier and reach the semis.

Bangladesh got the Super Six ticket as the second best team in the ‘A’ group in the youth global tournament. Mahfuzur Rahman Rabira lost to India in the group stage. In the first stage, 16 teams played the group stage with four teams each. The top three teams from each group have qualified for the Super Six.

The 12 teams that qualified for the second stage were again divided into two groups. Six teams in each group. Here Bangladesh got place in group ‘one’. In this phase of Super Six, there are six teams in a group, but each team will get a chance to play only two matches each.

Along with Bangladesh from Group ‘A’, the best team in the group India and the third best team Ireland have confirmed the Super Six. In Group One of the Super Six, Pakistan, New Zealand and Nepal have qualified for the second round from Group ‘A’, Group ‘D’.

As per the rules of the tournament, Bangladesh came as the second team in Group ‘A’ and had to compete against the first and third best teams in the other group. So the two matches of Bangladesh Youth in Super Six are against Pakistan and Nepal.

The battle of Super Six will start tomorrow from Tuesday. At the end of this phase, the best two teams from each group will get a place in the semi-finals. At this stage too, the results of group stage matches will have an effect. However, the results of all the matches of the first stage group stage will not be considered here. Only the teams from the same group who have secured the Super Six will be added to the Super Six match results along with win-loss, points and net run rate.

Due to this rule, Bangladesh will have to give a tough test in the Super Six. Because, despite winning against Ireland in the first stage, the youth of Bangladesh lost against India. Again, despite winning against USA in the last match of the group stage, they could not confirm the Super Six, so the result of that match will not be taken into consideration in the second stage. Therefore, Bangladesh is fourth in Group One of Super Six with two points.

On the other hand, India is on top of Group One with four points in two matches. Pakistan’s points from Group ‘D’ are also equal to India’s four. However, due to being behind in the net run rate, Pakistan’s youngster is second.

Bangladesh’s first match in Super Six is ‚Äč‚Äčagainst Nepal. Rabbis will face the third team of Group ‘D’ on January 31. In the second match on February 3, the youth of Bangladesh will fight against Pakistan. Bangladesh has no choice but to win both the matches to get the semi-final ticket.
