After displaying a give up attitude in the game against England, India would not come head to head against Bangladesh in the 39th fixture of ICC World Cup 2019 at Edgbaston, Birmingham on Tuesday.
The rivalry with Bangladesh almost walks parallel to the rivalry of Pakistan. The Tigers have always given Indians a tough competition and we are even aware of the fact that what happened with India in World Cup 2007.
A win to India would help them to fix their spot in the semi-finals of the World cup, whereas Bangladesh would be looking forward to keeping their hopes alive ahead of the tournament.
India won the toss and elected to bat first.
Mehidy Hasan Miraz is not playing; Rubel comes in.
Shabbir comes in for Mahmudullah.
Bangladesh: W, L, W, L, L
India: L, W, W, W, W

The pitch at Edgbaston, Birmingham has shown us two different conditions, The first game here was completely in favor of the bowlers, while in the last game, where England beat India, turned out to be a batting track. The weather on the match day is expected to be cooler.
Total matches: 3
India won: 2
Bangladesh won: 1
No 1 bowler Jasprit Bumrah is really unpredictable with the ball. He is capable of throwing six different balls in a single over with accurate line and length. He is an important asset and his ability to hit yorkers is the best thing to see in him. If Bumrah manages to pick the top order, then it would get difficult for inexperienced Bangladesh middle order to hold up their positions.
Shakib-al-Hasan has performed arguably brilliant in the world cup till date. Shakib has become the first player in history to score more than 4000 runs along with 10 wickets in a world cup edition. Shakib could be an x-factor player who could make things difficult for the blue side.
