India and Bangladesh are preparing for their much-awaited clash later today in the 17th ODI World Cup 2023 match. Their rivalry may not have the same charm as Team Blue’s recent victory against Pakistan, but Bangladesh has had some surprising twists and turns in recent years. The overall ODI record between the two stands at 31-8 in India’s favour, with the team looking phenomenal after registering three straight wins in this global tournament to sit second on the table with six points. Conversely, Bangladesh have one win in three matches and are at the sixth position.
The IND vs BAN match will be played at the MCA Stadium (Maharashtra Cricket Association) in Pune and will mark their first ODI encounter since the Asia Cup in September, with the latter winning in the final. Weather reports suggest skies should be clear for the first part of the match, although some showers are expected around sunset. Captain Rohit Sharma will lead the Indian cricket team with Virat Kohli, Hardik Pandya and Jasprit Bumrah being key players to watch out for. On the opponent side we have Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim as standouts.
