The 2 Asian teams will clash in the 35th match of the World Cup. India will face Bangladesh on 2nd November. The match will be held at the Adelaide Oval and will start at 1:30 PM IST.
India faced the first defeat of the tournament after winning two consecutive matches. The team would look to bounce back quickly. They might consider some changes in their lineup. The form of KL Rahul and the inability to take wickets in the middle overs might hurt the Indian side. Karthik got injured while keeping and might be replaced by Pant if he does not recover in time. Kohli will be keen to play on his favorite ground in Australia where he has scored lots of runs.
Meanwhile, Bangladesh escaped against Zimbabwe in their last encounter. They somehow managed to cross the line and get a win under their belt. But the Bangla Tigers have found it difficult to handle pace bowlers as they struggle to get going against them. Bangladesh have been very unpredictable and they have surprised the big teams in ICC tournaments. Bangladesh would look to surprise the favorites of the World Cup, but they need to play very consistently throughout the 40 overs.
