India and Bangladesh have faced off four times in ODI World Cup - ICC

India is set to take on Bangladesh in the 17th match of the ICC Cricket World Cup, scheduled to be held at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune.

India has emerged victorious in all three of their matches played so far, while Bangladesh has managed to secure only one win out of their three matches. As of now, India occupies the top position on the table, with Bangladesh languishing in 7th place.

In their recent match, India faced Pakistan and secured a significant win, with Rohit Sharma contributing 86 runs from 63 deliveries. In contrast, Bangladesh faced New Zealand in their last outing and suffered an eight-wicket defeat.

Head-to-Head in ODI World Cup

Bangladesh pulled off one of cricket's most stunning upsets when they defeated India at the 2007 World Cup. In the ICC Men's ODI World Cup, India and Bangladesh have faced off four times, with India emerging victorious in three of those contests.

Pitch Report

The Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium is renowned for its high-scoring pitches. The black soil on this surface provides the bounce, favouring batters throughout the game. However, pacers can exploit the bounce to trouble the batsmen. Spinners, on the other hand, do not enjoy significant advantages on this track. Winning the toss and opting to bat first is likely to be the preferred choice on this surface.
