Can India continue their winning run against Bangladesh when the two teams meet in their 2016 World T20 game? Get the latest India v Bangladesh betting tips for this World T20 encounter in this piece below.
India and their neighbours Bangladesh meet in what is a must win Group 2 game at the World T20 Tournament for both sides in the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bangalore on Wednesday.
Bangladesh have played and lost two fixtures so far, against Pakistan and Australia. They are on the brink of elimination as the result, but a loss on Wednesday will confirm that the side that recently qualified for the final of the Asia Cup, will not make it through to the knockout phase.
If the Tigers can create an upset and inflict a second defeat of the tournament on the hosts, they will keep their slim hopes alive. Although they will still need to beat New Zealand, and improve their poor overall run rate.
India will hope to repeat the outcome of the Asia Cup final, and the pool fixture at the same competition, just a couple of weeks ago, when they recorded two victories.
Defeat in the opening match of the competition to the Black Caps of New Zealand, left India needing to win all three of their remaining group fixtures to stand a chance of progressing to the last four.
A comfortable six wicket success against Pakistan at the weekend put the hosts back into the qualifying mix, but they need a win by a substantial margin on Wednesday in order to improve their overall run rate, which might come into play to decide at least one of the two qualifiers from Group 2.
Including the recent meetings at the Asia Cup, the two countries have played each other in just four T20I’s, with India winning all four meetings.
Although the match on Wednesday is being played on Indian soil, the hosts have only played one previous T20I at the venue, while Bangladesh experienced the venue as recently as Monday, when they faced the Australians there, losing by three wickets.
India v Bangladesh head-to-head
There have been four matches played between these two teams so far, with India leading the head to head 4-0.
