After suffering their first defeat at this World Cup, Team India is ready to square off with their noisy neighbors, Bangladesh in a must-win encounter. The Indian team, who has been the most consistent side in this tournament, would be eyeing to bounce back in this upcoming fixture. Kohli & Co have to win both their remaining games if they want to go top of the ladder. India is the hot favorites heading into this contest, but one must count Bangladesh out at their own peril.
Bangladesh has been really impressive in this World Cup on the back of some consistent performances. Mashrafe Mortaza has led his troops excellently against some top quality sides and his captaincy will be once again under the radar against India. Shakib Al Hasan, who has been in terrific form, will be the X-factor for Bangladesh both with the bat and ball.
