India vs Bangladesh Match Preview

When they play Bangladesh, the Rohit Sharma-led Indian cricket team will be looking for their fourth victory after triumphing over the likes of Australia, Afghanistan, and Pakistan. Bangladesh has only won one of its three tournament games thus far, whereas India has won their last three. But if the Cricket World Cup 2023 has taught us anything, it’s that no team should be taken lightly. Afghanistan just defeated England, the reigning champions, and the Netherlands defeated South Africa, the third-ranked ODI team in the world.

India Vs Bangladesh Match Prediction

India are in a dominant state of play, having triumphed in all three of their matches so far. Led by Rohit Sharma, the team has been performing consistently and appears to be a well-oiled machine. The batsmen have been able to find their strokeplay and the bowlers have been performing consistently to cause problems for the opposition.

Meanwhile, Bangladesh, who began their campaign with a victory over Afghanistan, has since suffered a series of losses, having fallen behind in the Points table after losing their last two games against England and New Zealand.

While a surprise win over India could be a boost to their campaign, it would be highly improbable given the current form of the team. India will be favourites to secure another comprehensive victory in the ongoing Cricket World Cup.
