After suffering their first defeat of the 2019 World Cup, India will be looking to make amends when they square off against Bangladesh.

India have been the most consistent side in this tournament but still find themselves well short of top spot. Virat Kohli's men will have to win both their remaining games and hope Australia lose their final game if they are to climb to the summit of the table.

Bangladesh, on the other hand, have been really impressive in this World Cup, consistently testing the world's best teams. Mashrafe Mortaza has led his troops excellently against some top-quality sides and his captaincy will once again be tested against India.

Shakib Al Hasan, who has been in terrific form, will be the X-factor for Bangladesh with both bat and ball.
