India will face Bangladesh in the final Super 4 game of the Asia Cup to be played at R Premadasa Stadium, Colombo on 15th September 2023. It has been an impressive performance by the Men in Blue side so far winning the previous match against Sri Lanka posting just 213 runs. This game gives an opportunity for the Indian team to test their bench strength before the big finals to be played on 17th September.
On the other hand, Bangladesh would look to end their tournament on a high. They have played 2 matches in Super 4 matches losing both comfortably. They will miss the services of Mushfiqur Rahim due to personal reasons.
The Men in Blue dominated Bangladesh during Asia Cup history during the ODI format. Both played 12 matches with India winning 11 of them while Bangladesh registered only 1 victory.
Details– Asia Cup 2023, India vs. Bangladesh
Venue– R Premadasa Stadium, Colombo
Date and Time– 15th September, 3.00 PM IST
The pitch used for the previous match between Sri Lanka and Pakistan looked like a superb batting pitch. Thanks to Iftikhar Ahmed and Mohammed Rizwan’s knock, Pakistan posted 252 for 7 in 42 overs. Sri Lanka looked in complete control as Kusal Mendis and Sadeera Samawickrama put up a superb partnership for the 3rd wicket.
Despite the wobbles at the end, Charith Asalanaka held onto his nerves to beat Pakistan by 2 wickets and qualify for the finals. It promises to be another good contest between bat and ball. The captain that wins the toss would likely bat first and put on the score before putting pressure on the opponent batters.
