Get the latest insights on India vs Bangladesh, Super 8 clash: Discover head-to-head stats, team news, pitch, and weather conditions.

It was less than 48 hours ago when Rohit Sharma had a simple grab at covers to confirm India’s wonderful start to the Super 8 stage in Barbados. Fast forward now, Rohit and his men are now in Antigua, preparing for another all-Asian battle, this time against Bangladesh. The 522-km distance won’t stand too much if the Men in Blue will get the job done against a decent-looking Bangla side. Another two points would more or less confirm India’s berth in the second semi-final! Before the much-awaited clash, let us look at a detailed preview of this Super 8 tie.

IND vs BAN head to head stats

India enjoys a commanding head-to-head record against Bangladesh in T20Is. In their 13 encounters, India has emerged victorious a staggering 12 times, while Bangladesh is yet to register a win. This statistic might intimidate Bangladeshi fans, but they are no pushovers and this ensures a thrilling contest nonetheless.

IND vs BAN Team News

India opted to include Kuldeep Yadav in place of Mohammed Siraj in Barbados. They are likely to go in with same combination of three left-arm spinners. Siraj is likely to remain on the bench unless rain provide some skiddy touch. For Bangladesh, they also have a settled outfit. While Soumya Sarkar can come in but that would be it for the Najmul Shanto’s side.

IND vs BAN Pitch Report

The Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua has presented a balanced surface throughout the tournament. Despite average boundary lengths, the pitch offers assistance to pacers with the new ball. Spinners come into play during the middle overs, making it crucial for both teams to have a well-rounded bowling attack. Bangladesh have already played a game here, meaning it is India who will be desperate to adapt quickly. The average first-innings total here is 132 but in this tournament, runs have leaked in Antigua.

IND vs BAN Weather Report

The biggest worry for both teams might be the weather. This stadium has seen the most rainfall (apart from Florida, of course), with as many as 4 out of 6 T20 World Cup 2024 matches forced to see overs getting cut. The match is scheduled to begin at 10.30 a.m. local time. Overcast conditions are likely to prevail, with temperatures reaching a maximum of 31 degrees Celsius and humidity hovering around 75%. Regardless, the rain chances during match hours are set to remain at 20 percent.
