On the flip side, Bangladesh enters this match with consecutive losses and a struggling sixth place on the points table, accompanied by a negative NRR of -0.699.

India and Bangladesh have a history of cricket clashes, with India winning 31 out of 40 one-day internationals (ODIs) played between the two nations. Bangladesh secured victories in eight of those matches. It’s worth noting that whenever Bangladesh triumphs against India, it’s considered an upset. Over the years, Bangladesh has significantly improved their cricket game, winning 3 out of the last 4 encounters with India.
