In pursuit of a flawless record, India will face Bangladesh in the 2023 ICC Cricket World Cup on October 19th in Pune. India, with three consecutive wins, is poised as the top contender for the cup, while Bangladesh seeks to recover from two significant defeats.

Match Details and Streaming: The encounter will take place at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune, commencing at 2:00 pm IST. The pitch is known for favoring batsmen, with spinners coming into play as the match progresses. The average first innings score is 307. The match will be broadcast on the Star Sports Network, and fans can stream it live via the Disney+ Hotstar app.

Head-to-Head Record: In their 40 ODI encounters, India has dominated with 31 wins, while Bangladesh managed eight victories, and one match ended without a result. India has won three out of four ODI World Cup matches, with the exception of their infamous 2007 defeat to Bangladesh. Since 2022, Bangladesh has defeated India three times in four ODIs.

Bangladesh’s Challenge: Bangladesh possesses the resources to put up a strong fight, with recent evidence to support this claim. However, batsmen like Litton Das, Najmul Shanto, and Towhid Hridoy must step up. Bangladesh hopes that Shakib Al Hasan, who was recently seen practicing after a quad tear, will be available for the match.

India’s Strategy: India is in excellent form, and fans can expect an exciting game with Rohit Sharma’s solid performance and the return of Shubman Gill. The inclusion of Ravichandran Ashwin, known for his spin expertise, is yet to be confirmed after being benched since India’s opener. Shardul Thakur may make way for Ashwin.
