India vs Bangladesh: This is the final Super Fours match of the 2023 Asia Cup. As they try to generate momentum for the final, the Indians will face the Bangladeshis in this game. In a low-scoring match, the Indians overcame Sri Lanka to secure their spot in the final game. Bangladesh lost to Sri Lanka in their previous match, eliminating them from contestants.
The last three games have seen the Indians in outstanding form. Famous players on the team have all made contributions with the ball and bat. At neutral stadiums, Bangladeshis have a dismal record when playing India. In the previous 15 years, they have failed to defeat India in a game played in a neutral venue. Watching to see if the side can spring a surprise in this situation will be interesting.
The India vs Bangladesh ODI match will take place on September 12, 2023, at R. Premadasa Stadium.
Match Details to Note:

Time: 03:00 PM IST
Venue: R. Premadasa Stadium.
After defeating Sri Lanka by 41 runs in the previous game, Rohit Sharma’s team has advanced to the final match. After a rain-delay in their opening match against Pakistan, the team has played with precision in its previous three games. The bowlers are in good form, and the top order has scored runs. Sharma hopes to gain momentum for the final with a huge victory in this match.
The last three games have had strong beginnings from Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill, who are both in fantastic form. The team will anticipate a good performance from them in this match. The side will anticipate runs from Virat Kohli, KL Rahul, and Ishan Kishan because of the middle order’s strong strength. Axar Patel, Ravindra Jadeja, and Hardik Pandya form a strong batting order.
Indians expect a strong performance from pacers Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammad Siraj with the new ball because they have bowled well in the last two games. Kuldeep Yadav has nine wickets in the last two games and is in outstanding form. In the middle overs, he will try to trouble the Bangladeshis. The bowling trio of Pandya, Jadeja, and Axar Patel is effective.
Rohit Sharma (c), Hardik Pandya (vc), Shreyas Iyer, Suryakumar Yadav, K L Rahul (wk), Virat Kohli, Shubman Gill, Tilak Varma, Axar Patel, Ravindra Jadeja, Ishan Kishan (wk), Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Prasidh Krishna, Mohammad Shami, Mohammed Siraj, and Jasprit Bumrah.
Players to watch out for:
Virat Kohli scored a massive century (122 runs) against Pakistan. He failed to score against Sri Lanka and it is expected to bounce back against Bangladesh. He will be the player to watch out for in the game.
Kuldeep is the most efficient bowler in the team and the Asia Cup tournament. He took 9 wickets in total with an economy of 3.70 lower than any other player. His consistency is the key of India’s winning.
Possible Playing XI:
Rohit Sharma(c), Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, Ishan Kishan(w), Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Mohammed Siraj
Shakib al Hasan’s and his team’s tournament campaign has been a complete failure. The team hasn’t lived up to expectations, with the exception of the victory over Afghanistan in the group stage. They lost to Sri Lanka by 21 runs in their most recent game and have no chance of moving on to the next round. A victory over India will give Shakib the chance to finish the tournament strong and improve his confidence going into the World Cup.
As both players have scored runs, Mohammad Naim and Mehidy Hasan Miraz will be expected to perform well at the top for the team. The middle order has been unreliable, thus the team is counting on Litton Das, Najmul Hossain Shanto, and Towhid Hridoy to put on a strong performance. Good hitters Mushfiqur Rahim and Shakib must add quick runs in the lower middle order.
Against the Indians, the bowling attack will have a difficult task. To worry India’s in-form top order, they will need strong spells from Taskin Ahmed and Shoriful Islam early on. The circumstances will favor Shakib and Mehidy Hasan Miraz, who must slow India’s scoring rate. The team will also expect Nasum Ahmed and Hasan Mahmud to put on a strong performance.
Mushfiqur Rahim, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Afif Hossain, Taskin Ahmed, Shakib Al Hasan (c), Litton Das, Najmul Hossain Shanto, Towhid Hridoy, Hasan Mahmud, Mustafizur Rahman, Shoriful Islam, Tanzid Hasan, Tanzim Hasan, Nasum Ahmed, Mahedi Hasan, Mohammad Naim, Shamim Hossain
Players to watch out for:
Shakib Al Hasan
Shakib plays the role of the middle-order batsman so, it is expected that he will score big runs in fewer bowls. He has played average in his position and will try to change that in the last game of the series.
To worry India’s in-form top order, Bangladesh will need strong spells from Taskin Ahmed. He has the capability to take wickets and put a deep impact on Indian batting.
India vs Bangladesh Head-to-Head:
39 ODI games have pitted Bangladesh and India against one another. Out of these 39 games, India has prevailed in 31 of them, while Bangladesh has won 7 of them. In one game, there was no winner.
India vs Bangladesh Toss Prediction:
On this surface, most teams have had success batting first. The optimum time to bat is at the beginning of the game, and the second inning, when the pitch also starts to slow down, is when the spinners enter the fray. Therefore, it is likely that the team winning the toss will immediately bat first.
India vs Bangladesh Pitch Report:
Rain is expected to fall in Colombo. A flat surface like this one has historically allowed batters to score runs. We have witnessed teams rack up significant points. In these circumstances, the team batting first would be content to score 280 runs or more.
India vs Bangladesh Match Prediction:
Bangladesh has performed poorly in this competition. The team’s heavy hitters have had trouble with their form. To give themselves a chance in this game, they must develop their bat and ball skills. In the previous three games, the Indians have checked off every box, and their top order is performing well. They become the game’s favorites as a result.
We predict India to win the match Sri Lanka vs Bangladesh at the odds of 1.14
India vs Bangladesh The Most Recommended Player To Bet:
Virat Kohli scored a massive century (122 runs) against Pakistan. He failed to score against Sri Lanka and it is expected to bounce back against Bangladesh. He will be the player to bet for in the game.
