Ind vs Ban | As it Happened: India Beat Bangladesh to Enter Semis
Live updates from the India vs Bangladesh match at the 2019 ICC World Cup.
ICC World Cup Match 40 - India Face Bangladesh
Officially in the final fortnight of the 2019 ICC World Cup and in India’s penultimate match of the group stage they’re playing Bangladesh today at Edgbaston.
A victory today will ensure Virat Kohli’s team a spot in the semi-finals. Currently placed second in the standings, India has 11 points from seven games after being handed their first defeat of the tournament by England on Sunday.
However, if Bangladesh come out on top, they can move level with fifth-place Pakistan on nine points — one point behind fourth-place England. A defeat will end their semi-final hopes.
Bangladesh and Pakistan meet in their last group game at Lord's on Friday. India's final group match is against Sri Lanka at Headingley on Saturday.
India vs Bangladesh Head-to-Head
India has won the last four ODIs against Bangladesh.
The teams have played each other three times at the World Cup so far with Bangladesh winning in 2007 followed by victories for India in 2011 and 2015.
Bangladesh and India have met once before in an ODI at Edgbaston when India won by nine wickets in the 2017 Champions Trophy with big scores from Rohit Sharma and Kohli.
India vs Bangladesh: Mortaza Positive
On the eve of the match, Bangladesh’s skipper Mashrafe Mortaza came for the pre-match press conference and said his brief to the players is to stay calm amidst hype surrounding the India clash which will decide his team's fate in the World Cup.
"It is very important to stay cool. Hype is such that it becomes difficult for each player to stay calm. It is important to do the things we do on the field properly. Initially nerves play a role and it's important to control nerves in the beginning. It is better to stay away from outside pressures," said the skipper.
India Make 2 Changes
Virat Kohli has won the toss and elected bat first in Birmingham against Bangladesh.
Two changes to their playing XI. Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Dinesh Karthik are playing and Kuldeep Yadav & Kedar Jadhav make way for them.
