The two countries will meet in the final of the ICC World Cup Qualifier 2018, with India looking to secure a place in the 2019 tournament while Bangladesh is still hopeful of making its debut. Although they have not been able to make much of an impact in the past few editions of the global event, this match promises to be something different.
India’s batting lineup is full of experience and is led by Virat Kohli, who has helped his side reach the final. However, their bowling attack has been shaky at times, and they will need to improve if they want to beat Bangladesh. On the other hand, Bangladesh has proved itself a force to be reckoned with and has managed to win against some strong opponents. This includes wins against England and Ireland, which shows how good they are.
This should be an exciting game, and it would not be surprising if both teams scored some points. However, it is important that whichever team emerges victorious take all the positives from this match and use them heading into next year’s World Cup qualifiers.
