The ICC WORLD CUP 2019 40th match will be played between India and Bangladesh at Edgbaston, Birmingham.
Bangladesh has won three matches against South Africa, West Indies, and Afghanistan and lost three matches against New Zealand, England, and Australia. While one match against Sri Lanka was abandoned due to rains. In their last match against Afghanistan, Bangladesh made 262 for 7 wickets in 50 overs and Afghanistan failed to chase the score and Bangladesh won that match by 62 runs. However, their performance in the last three matches has been quite impressive.
India after back to back 5 wins, lost to England for 32 runs. Looking at overall performance, India should be able to win the match against Bangladesh easily but, anything can happen in the World Cup.
This match is important for both the team. India needs one win to be in the semi-finals. With just two matches left, India will not take any risk of losing this match. For Bangladesh, they need to win both the matches against India and Pakistan and hope England lose to New Zealand to keep their chances alive.
The pitch has mostly been good for batting, and maximum wickets have been taken by fast bowlers. In the last match on this ground between India and England, England made 337 and India couldn’t chase the score and lost the match by 32 runs. Today’s match score should be around 300-350.
As per the weather report, patchy rain is possible. Let’s hope for no rains today.
