You can watch the live match on Star Sports & Disney+Hotsar.

Pitch report:

The pitch of Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Pune is heaven for the batters. It gives significant assistance to pacers, especially during the evening. So, the only way to win is to make a high score at the beginning. During the later of the match, the pitch will start giving assistance to the pacers and chasing the target becomes impossible.

Seven matches have been held in this stadium till now and among them, in the five matches, the score was 300 in the first innings. Only two times did the opponents manage to chase it down.

Back in 2021 when the Men in Blue scored 356/7 against England. Virat Kohli has scored 448 runs in 7 innings, including 2 hundreds and 3 fifties.

Weather report:

According to the weather report the weather of the day will be partly cloudy throughout the day and the temperature will be around 32 degrees Celsius. The precipitation will be around 10% & the humidity will be around 54%. As the humidity of Pune is pretty high, it is expected that the players will feel exhausted which may impact their performance too. However, as Bangladesh has quite similar weather to India, so, we believe that the players will be able to manage.

India Bangladesh ODI head-to-head stats:

As the format of the event is ODI, so, we are focusing on the ODI format only. Till today India has played 40 ODI matches with Bangladesh and 31 times India managed a win. Bangladesh secured a win for the 8 times and only 1 time match ended with no result.

Our prediction:

Team India is performing extremely well in the ICC World Cup 2023 and India has already secured the second position on the point table with a run rate (NRR) of +1.821. India is among the very few teams in this event who have managed to win every match.

On the other hand, Bangladesh has lost two matches already and holds the 6th position on the point table with a run rate (NRR) of -0.699.

So, our prediction is India has the highest chance to win the match. India has great batters such as Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul etc. We believe we are going to see some great shots from them.
