[RxPG] Dhaka, March 16 - An organisation of Hindu youths in Bangladesh are to hold a ritual to invoke divine blessings for the success of the Bangladeshi team in its World Cup Cricket clash with India on Saturday.

The youths of 'Astitte Bangladesh' will perform a 'Jagyo' ceremony to invoke the blessings of Lord Krishna for the success of the Bangladeshi side, fondly called 'Tigers'.

The ritual is to be held Friday noon at the 'Sri Sri Natun Kali-bari' temple in Moulvibazar, a town in Sylhet district in northeastern Bangladesh, the Daily Star newspaper said.

Bangladesh meet India in a Group B encounter at the Queens Park Oval in Trinidad and Tobago.

The organisation has invited all well wishers to join them in their prayer.

The match has sparked excitement across the India-Bangladesh border, although former world champions India are heavily favoured to prevail. Bangladesh's victory over New Zealand in a practice match last week has enthused the people and made them hopeful of a possible win, the newspaper said.
