IND vs BAN Match Preview

Jasprit Bumrah has emerged as the leading force in the bowling department, amassing a total of 8 wickets. His exceptional performance has been evident both at the beginning of the innings with the new ball, as well as during the crucial death overs. On the other hand, Mohammad Siraj, despite a relatively subdued start to the tournament, made a significant impact by claiming vital wickets of Abdullah Shafique and Babar Azam in the previous match.

Kuldeep Yadav, Hardik Pandya, and Ravindra Jadeja have each contributed with 5 wickets, showcasing their prowess in the bowling arena. Shifting focus to the batting aspect, Rohit Sharma has been in an electrifying form, consecutively achieving scores of 50 or more in the last two matches.

Virat Kohli and KL Rahul have effectively fulfilled their roles in the middle order, while the return of Shubman Gill has fortified the top order, providing a formidable strength. It is evident that India currently possesses a well-rounded team, with all aspects of the game adequately covered.

The batting performance of Bangladesh has proven to be a significant disappointment. With the exception of Mushfiqur Rahim, none of the batsmen have managed to make a substantial impact thus far. While Najmul Hossain Shanto, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, and Litton Das have shown promise in certain instances, they must strive for greater consistency.

Both Towhid Hridoy and Shakib Al-Hasan have encountered difficulties with their batting, resulting in the collapse of Bangladesh's middle order on multiple occasions. However, Shakib has excelled in his bowling, claiming 5 wickets and emerging as the team's leading wicket-taker alongside Shoriful Islam.

Mustafizur Rahman, Taskin Ahmed, and Mahedi Hasan have proven to be rather costly in their performances. If Bangladesh wishes to regain its winning form, improvements must be made in all aspects of the game.


Weather Report

The weather is expected to be clear with temperatures ranging from 26 to 30 degrees Celsius. 

Pitch Report

Pune is a high-scoring venue and has an average first-inning score of around 310 runs. We expect this match to be no different. The pitch is firm and hard, and since this will be the first match that will be played here in this tournament, we can expect a fresh pitch.

The bounce is good and there will be some help for the quicker bowlers. But overall, we can expect the pitch to favor the batsmen.
