Bangladesh won the toss and decided to bat against hosts India in their fourth World Cup match. Although there is confusion about Shakib, in the end Bangladesh entered the field without this star cricketer. Nazmul Hossain Shanto is serving as the captain in this match.
There are two changes in the Bangladesh team today. Nasum Ahmed got a place in the XI instead of Shakib. And instead of Taskin Ahmed, Hasan Mahmud got a chance in the XI. And India is entering the field with an unchanged XI.
India is quite ahead of Bangladesh in statistics. So far Bangladesh and India have faced each other 40 times in ODIs. Out of this, India won 31 and Bangladesh won eight. A match is abandoned. The Tigers have only managed to beat India once in the World Cup.
Bangladesh XI: Liton Das, Tanjid Hasan, Nazmul Hossain (captain), Tawhid Hriday, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mahmudullah, Mehdi Hasan Miraj, Nasum Ahmed, Mostafizur Rahman, Shariful Islam and Hasan Mahmud.
