India and Bangladesh will square off in the 17th match of the ICC World Cup 2023 at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune on October 19. India is currently placed at the top of the points table with three wins in three matches, while Bangladesh is at seventh position with one win in three matches.
India is the clear favorite for this match, given their recent form and head-to-head record against Bangladesh. India has won 31 of the 40 matches played between the two teams in ODIs. However, Bangladesh cannot be taken lightly, as they have shown their fighting spirit in the past.
India are the clear favorites to win this match. They have a well-balanced team with world-class players in every department. Bangladesh, on the other hand, have struggled in this tournament so far. They will need to be at their best to beat India. The match is expected to be a high-scoring one, given the small boundaries of the Pune Stadium. Both teams have powerful batting lineups, so it will be interesting to see who comes out on top.
India is unlikely to make any changes to the XI that played against Pakistan in their previous match. The team management may consider including an extra spinner if the pitch is slow and turning. However, given the small boundaries of the Pune Stadium, this is unlikely.
Probable XI: Rohit Sharma (c), Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul (wk), Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Siraj
The Bangladesh XI is a big puzzle, with the skipper Shakib Al Hasan’s availability under a cloud. If Shakib is not available, Mehidy Hasan Miraz could be promoted as an opener, with Tanzim Hasan Sakib also getting a look-in.
Probable XI: Litton Das, Tanzid Tamim, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Najmul Hossain Shanto, Shakib Al Hasan* (c), Mushifiqur Rahim (wk), Towhid Hridoy, Mahmudullah, Taskin Ahmed, Mustafizur Rahman, Shoriful Islam
Fantasy XI Suggestion 1:
Mushfiqur Rahim, Liton Das, Rohit Sharma (c), Virat Kohli, Shubman Gill (vc), Shakib Al Hasan, Hardik Pandya, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Jasprit Bumrah, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammad Siraj
Fantasy XI Suggestion 2:
Mushfiqur Rahim, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli (vc), Shubman Gill (c), Mahmudullah, Shakib Al Hasan, Hardik Pandya, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Jasprit Bumrah, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammad Siraj
