With just a day’s gap in between the Super Eight stage games, getting rest and focusing on optimal recovery will be on the minds of both teams. But at the same time, India and Bangladesh will be going through their plans again to put their best foot forward in this crucial clash to keep themselves in the reckoning for the semifinal spots.

Transitioning from tough and makeshift conditions in the USA to a traditional and settled West Indies was rather seamless for India as they got a comfortable 47-run win over Afghanistan in their first Super 8 stage game at Barbados. Now, they await the test of excelling in Antigua, where scores of 150 and above have been recorded four times collectively.

With Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Rishabh Pant, and Axar Patel playing pivotal roles in a superb batting performance against Afghanistan, India would also like for designated spin-hitter Shivam Dube to join the run-making party.

India are expected to retain the playing eleven they fielded against Afghanistan for Saturday’s clash with Bangladesh, which would mean left-arm spinner Kuldeep Yadav retains his place after taking two wickets in his first T20 World Cup game.
