Australia is a country that gets up early. The streets of the big cities are dotted with people getting in a quick workout before the work day or lining up behind counters at cafes to get their coffee 'to go' at the first sliver of light.

Even on cloudy days, which this World Cup has seen plenty of, the sun finds a way to shine through, demanding that the day be seized.

With the qualification in sight, India must refocus its efforts against a Bangladesh side that appears to be too strong, at least on paper.

They will understand that in World Cups, as in life, you cannot win every battle, but you can try to win the important ones. And Wednesday's game is one of them.

Seven years ago, in another World Cup, late risers in cricket finally showed what they were capable of when fully awake.

Shakib al Hasan, Taskin Ahmed, and Soumya Sarkar are the only survivors from that day, and they'll be hoping that Wednesday is a similarly watershed moment in their T20 journey.
