After losing the first match to Sri Lanka, the Rohit Sharma led Indian side bounced back extremely well to win their next two matches.

They are now on top of the table with one match go, against Bangladesh, who are coming off a spectacular win against Sri Lanka.

With one foot into the final, the Men in Blue will hope to guarantee their spot on top of the table with a win against Bangladesh. Rohit Sharma's men already defeated the Tigers in the tournament and will hope to get another win under their belt on March 14.

Let's take a look at their predicted XI:


Rohit Sharma:

Despite taking India to victory in the last two matches, the stand-in India captain has performed extremely poorly with the bat. He has not scored a single half-century in the last seven T20Is. With scores of 21, 0, 11, 0, 17, and 11, Rohit is due for a big score.

He has been severely criticised for his batting performances in this series and will hope to turn things around in the match against Bangladesh.

Rishabh Pant:

The talented youngster has not been able to get going in the series so far. He scored 23 runs in the first match, but he looked quite uncomfortable against the opposition bowlers.

He failed to make an impact in the second T20I against Bangladesh as well and was hence dropped for India's third T20I. However, with India almost through to the final, the team management should give him another chance to prove himself.

Shikhar Dhawan has been playing a lot of matches off late and he could be rested for the match against Bangladesh.
